Our 30 Pieces of Silver offering will be taken for Easter again this year. The offering will be placed in the new church bus fund to help with the purchase of a newer bus. You may place your special offering in the box in the foyer or in the offering plate with "30 pieces of silver" written on the memo line. Thank you.
A fund to purchase a new church bus has been started. If you would like to give to this fund, please mark your donaton as "bus fund" so that it will go to the appropriate place. This fund is intended to be separate from the church tithe and missions giving, and we ask that you not take from these funds to give to the new bus fund. It is simply open for those who can give or wish to give in order to purcahse a much-needed church bus. Thank you, and God bless you for your service to Him.
Thank you to Hillary Richmond and her helpers for their hard work for the children's Easter egg hunt on April 12. It was a lot of fun for both children and adults, and the efforts of Hillary and her assistants are greatly appreciated.
The ladies' Wednesday night class is called "Standing in the Shelter of God's Promises". Amanda Boberg is the class leader, and it will meet in the same classroom as their last study. All ladies are encouraged to attend.
The ladies are meeting at 12:30 on Wednesday afternoons to make useful items for the homeless. Please join them as they work to help others. You may also help them by making the items at home if you cannot come to the Wednesday afternoon meetings. They would still love to have your help. Thank you!
Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Support group meets at the church every Monday at 8 pm. Everyone is welcome.
We will be collecting bottled water and non-perishable foods for the fire department. These items are often needed when our fire department is called to large fires. There will be a box in the foyer for those who wish to donate water and food items to be delivered to the fire department to help firefighters when they are putting out fires. Your help is appreciated.
Jack Maxey is teaching the book of Romans in the big classroom off the foyer. Joe Brown and Bernard Houlehan have begun a new men's study by Kyle Idleman in Roy Peterson's Sunday morning classroom. Amanda Boberg has begun a new women's study by Beth Moore, and Roy Peterson's class is studying the Gospel of John in the library. There are also children's classes for all ages.
