Special Thank You
Special thanks to all who helped lead and participate in our Lenten Journey here at Claybanks UMC beginning with Ash Wednesday and concluding on Easter Sunday. It has been our pray that as we worked our way through Lent, we as individual and a church have strengthened our relationship with God the Father, got to know Jesus more closely and we are to look for the fire of the Holy Spirit as we approach Pentecost Sunday in a few short weeks.
Our April meeting was a time to reflect on the Easter morning experience. We discussed the morning brunch and decided it was well received so we will continue with the same menu next year. We also decided we would like to purchase a toaster (4 slice) and a can opener for the church (an electric one to benefit arthritic hands!). We need to fire Edie Bogart as the coffee maker or have her lighten up on the amount of coffee grounds she uses. George would probably not be available to come to make the coffee!
