Blessings to all of you as we look forward to summer! As always, May is a month with a lot happening around the church. Check the calendar for when our church clean up day is scheduled, when we will celebrate the graduates, the last day of Sunday School for the season, and when summer worship hours commence.
This summer we will be publishing a church directory. It has been ten years since our last one, so it is definitely time! We are working with Lifetouch and are excited about the project. Our photos will be taken at the church on Friday June 21 from 2:00 to 8:30 and Saturday June 22 from 10:00-2:00. We would love to have your picture in our new directory. Everyone who gets their photo taken will receive a free 8x10 and a free directory. If you bring a canned good item to the church at the time of your photo, you will receive a $5.00 coupon toward the purchase of more pictures. You can sign up for your photo time at church on Sunday May 12. We will also be making the scheduling available online in the near future. Be sure to watch for the information in the mail! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask Terri Becker or Doug Hora as they are serving on the church directory committee. We are looking forward to having a great new directory by the end of the summer!
May grace and peace be with you all!
