On Sunday morning, Rev. Dr. Anna Kaydor Labala of Liberia will be preaching. I’ve listed for you below a bit of her bio. Her message will be based on John 16:33 Trusting God Always.
On this Memorial Day weekend, we will be doing something new, brought to us by the Memorial Committee. Memorials given and purchased in the last 12 months will be dedicated to God. We’ve invited family members of those we’re remembering to join us for worship.
Our children will be leading us in the Noisy Offering. Beginning this month, the offering will be designated to the Baby Fold. We’re at $1500 of the $6500 pledged to the Baby Fold for this year! At the end of last month’s Noisy Offering, we surpassed our goal of $5,000 for the Habitat for Humanity House. Thank you!
New Song for 11:00 worship this Sunday – “A New Hallelujah”. We invite you to listen to it ahead of time. It has a special children’s choir in the video! Enjoy!
Between the Sunday morning services, there will be a reception for Olya Zherebkina, our exchange student daughter from Russia She’ll be returning to Russia on June 10th. Thank you for being such a wonderful, caring community for her.
Look forward to seeing you in worship!
