From Pastor Scott

 

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY  

Carnation Sunday to celebrate the women we hold dear in our hearts

 

She is strong and respected and not afraid of the future.

She speaks with a gentle wisdom.

She is always busy and looks after her family’s needs.

Her children show their appreciation, and her husband praises her

He says, “Many women are good wives, but you are the best of them all.”

Charm is deceptive and beauty disappears, but a woman who honors the Lord Should be praised.

Give her credit for all she does.

She deserves the respect of everyone.

 ~Proverbs 31:25-31  Good News Bible

 

 

From the desk of Scott…..

Thank you to our Christian Ed committee for a wonderful Children’s Sunday School Zoom this past Sunday. Rachel Eaton and Lauretta Boyce did a marvelous team effort of creating a terrific craft project, and delivering the materials to homes of the children.

 

The next Children’s Sunday School will be June 13th on the church grounds. The preliminary plan is to host a scavenger hunt and pizza lunch for our children and their families immediately after worship concludes. There will be more details in the weeks ahead. 

 

I can imagine no heroism greater than motherhood.”

God Cares. Yesterday today and tomorrow

 

 

All over the world folks are doing what they can to support and give comfort in this time of uncertainty.

Everything has changed but God is our constant. 

God will comfort the grieving and give strength to those who are in need

There is hope found through prayer and our continued faith that God will be there for all of us.

 

 

Our church family is amazing when called upon to help. 

Some ideas.....
Fill the plastic container outside the parking lot door with food for the food pantry

Drop off cards in the office mail box to be mailed to area nursing homes or our shut-ins.

Put a sign with a word or picture of encouragement in a window or in your yard

Every day at 3PM let's all take a moment to connect spiritually with prayer.

A moment in time each day to pray for those who need God’s comfort and care.

 

Your deacons are available via email or phone. We are committed to help however we can.

The Lord hears when I call to him. There are many who say, “O that we might see some good!”

Lift up the light of thy countenance upon us, O Lord

In peace I will both lie down and sleep.

For thou alone. O  Lord, makest me dwell in safety.
