BIRTHDAY BLESSINGS to Barb Crosno who turns 84 on Saturday, May 10! Barb moved to Oregon last week and her temporary address is in the printed bulletin.
COMMUNION: This morning we celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion. Jesus invites all who are weary and heavy laden to find rest in him. He invites the young, old, rich, poor, strong, and weak—all who have faith in him to come to the feast and be nourished. The bread is gluten-free.
LITURGY GRADUATION: Today we honor our newest Liturgy class graduates: Nathaniel Vandenberg and Gus De Jong.
POTLUCK: Care Community Two will be having lunch today in the basement following the morning service. Any visitors who wish to join us are welcome!
LAST DAY OF SUNDAY SCHOOL: Today was the final day of Sunday School for the 2018-2019 school year.
NO EVENING SERVICE next week (May 12).
CHRISTIAN EDUCATION FUND: Pledge forms for the 2019-2020 school year are in your mailboxes. Please prayerfully consider what you can contribute and return the forms by Sunday, May 19. Thank you.
SENIOR BRUNCH: We are pretty sure the snow is gone till next winter so we are planning the Senior Brunch for Wednesday, May 15 at 11 am in the basement!
