"Can you help us make a difference?"  
 
       The Amigos de Guatemala are sending 3 people to Monte Margarita to assist with the building of the multi-use facility and clinic. They will be there from May 27 through June 3. They will be doing hard labor but also reinforcing the bond we have with members of that community. We ask for your prayers for them as they make this journey.
 
Children's Sermon
for May 14(based on John 14:1-14)   Items needed:  empty non-clear 20 oz soda bottle with cap removed; clear punch bowl filled with water.  Show kids empty soda bottle, then bring out clear punch bowl with water.  Hold bottle under surface of water so bottle fills up, then remove your hand so bottle floats in bowl.  Ask kids---Is the water in the bottle, or is the bottle in the water?   the answer is, Yes!  The water is in the bottle AND the bottle is in the water.   In today's Bible reading,  Jesus says that Jesus is in God, and God is in Jesus.  That's kind of like the water is in the bottle AND  the bottle is in the water.   God and Jesus are both full of love.
- Rev. David Quinn
