Option 2: "Understanding Worship" a RightNowMedia study by Tom Kraeuter in the Fellowship Hall. c/o Debi Ackerman. This study dives into what worship really is. Kraeuter states, "Your thinking will change-perhaps dramatically- but even more importantly, your heart will be changed, too." This class is not just for musicians or those in leadership. Please contact Debi if you have questions.


Is your pocket change jar getting full? Our Baby Bottle Boomerang fundraiser for Positive Alternatives is going on now through Father's Day. Pick up a Baby bottle from the basket in the fellowship hall. Fill it with coins and bills to help fund young mothers that come for counseling at the Positive Alternatives Center. Contact Debi Ackerman if you have questions or would like to become a volunteer.

Would you consider helping with the humanitarian crisis that covid is threatening the people of India with? Our friends who serve with YWAM are in need of food kits to pass out to families who have come in contact with covid. They have such fear that they will not leave their homes for food. One kit costs around $20 and it lasts about a week. If you would like to contribute to this project please write in the memo of your check YWAM -India project.

The Children's SS will be combining into two classes in June and July (toddler and grade school). Would you consider serving in this ministry and teaching for 1-2 Sundays (sign-up sheet)? Please see Kim Good for more information.

Everyone is invited to a campfire this Wednesday, May 19, at 6:00 pm on the church lawn. We will celebrate the completion of the Menno Knight program and announce the individual winners. Bring a lawn chair. Walking Tacos and Smores will be provided.
