Adult Sunday School – will return from May 2nd to June 6th for five Sundays. We will be meeting in the Fellowship Hall using safe distancing beginning at 9:30 a.m. and conclude at 10:15 a.m. to be able to move into worship time. Our study will consist of a few of the shorter books of the New Testament. We will begin with Titus on May 2nd. Other books we will look at are Philemon on the 9th, Books of John on May 16 and 23, Jude on the 30th and a book to be determined by the class on June 6th. All are welcome for any of the Sundays. You All Come!
Our UMW ladies started out meeting as usual with a devotional reading and prayer. The reading came from “Help Lord, I’m Having a Senior Moment” by Karen O’Connor. We all know God has a sense of humor, so we do enjoy a bit of humor before our meetings and this book certainly gives that to us!
Then it was on to more serious business. We will be keeping close watch on our financial situation and by Fall we will decide on the missions we support and if we need to make any adjustments.
We discussed how we might help Elaine by supplying Sunday morning sanctuary flowers. This is too much for Elaine alone to worry about and she might even need help with her flower gardens. We recognize in gratitude, her flower contributions through the years, following the years of flowers from Alma Martin’s garden. For now, we will rely on volunteer presentations rather than putting out another sign-up sheet.
We discussed how the strawberry social will be held this year. We most likely will serve from a table by the kitchen like when we have luncheons and let people seat themselves. Hopefully, the weather will be lovely, and we can commune out-of-doors. Men, be prepared to figure out a way to set up tables for us! People are already asking if we will have the social this year and the answer is “God willing” yes!
We Need Your Help
Liturgists are needed for June through August and volunteers are needed to clean the church from June through the end of the year. Please sign up on the sheets located on the table in the Fellowship Hall.
Peru Medical Mission 2021
Our April 25th Worship Service was led by Denise Schuitema who presented on the Peru Medical Mission trip that she plans to attend sometime in 2021. Denise introduced herself and showed photos of a previous mission trip. She said that donations of multi-vitamins for both adults and children, new bras, and toothbrushes would be appreciated and would greatly benefit the people they will be serving. A donation box was left in the Fellowship Hall. Carol Royalty presented Denise with a check for $500 from our church.
