VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Vacation Bible School was a big success. We had an average of 60 children in attendance. Plan to watch for dates and times for next year. You won’t want to miss it.
There is a move afoot to continue and start new small groups. If you are interested, please contact the church office, 337-3526, or tell Ernest Thomas. New and interesting material is being looked at, and we would like to share it with as many groups as possible.
Wednesday Wandering Meals have been suspended for the summer. They will begin again toward the later part of August
Hope everyone has a good summer.
Canned Food Sunday in May will be May 18. In April canned food Sunday fell on Easter and everyone was busy so the food cart was rather skimpy on the amount of food in it. Let’s make a resolution to do better this month. After all Christ died for us. The least we can do, to show our gratitude for this, is to heed Jesus command “Feed my sheep.” As heard in the cantata “All we like sheep have gone astray, each to his own way.” This is one very easy way we can help our community. Pick up some extra cans the next time you shop and bring them to church and put them in the cart. The goal of Outreach Ministry each month for this project is a full cart.
Presbyterian Women’s Monthly Circle Meeting
The next meeting will be a Combined Circle Super Salad Supper (more delicious food) May 8th at 6:00 p.m. in the home of Suzy Pack, 6951 Willowbend St. That is in Ponderosa so we’ll carpool. Let Nina Rice, Joyce Evans, or Ann Tilley know if you need a ride and they will make arrangements. Each person is asked to bring a salad to share.
