Dear Church Family,
I would like to thank everyone who helped make our Holy Week services and activities possible! Everything was wonderful from the children bringing in the palms, to the wonderful music, to the invitations that were handed out, to the egg hunt, and to the breakfast that was prepared. My prayer is that more people will experience new life in Christ as a result of these efforts!
Now that Holy Week is in our rear view mirror, it’s time to look forward into May. I’m excited about what May has in store for us. On May 1st, the first Wednesday in May, we will begin two new Bible studies. One study is a women’s study entitled “God of Covenant: A Study of Genesis 12-50” by Jen Wilkin. The other study is a men’s study entitled “33 Series: A Man and His Story.” Both studies will be held at the same time on Wednesday evenings. I want to challenge you to invite anyone you know that may be interested in attending these Bible studies.
On May 2nd we will gather together in the Social Hall at 6:30pm for the National Day of Prayer. During this time we will pray for our nation. I would love to have you join us! Then on Sunday, May 5th we are having a Vacation Bible School Volunteers’ Lunch & Interest Meeting after the 11am service. We need as much help as we can get so come out and hear about this year’s theme and all the ways that you can serve. Some of the other events coming up in May are the Parents’ Night Out on Saturday, May 11th, baby dedication on Sunday, May 12th, graduate recognition on Sunday, May 19th, and fellowship club on Tuesday, May 21st.
May is shaping up to be a month full of various opportunities to worship and serve the Lord! During Holy Week we focused on the death and resurrection of Jesus. We reflected on what happened that week many years ago and what the significance is for us today. In Christ we have receive new life and that new life is meant to be lived out today. Let’s live out this new life this month and make the most of the opportunities that God is going to give us!
