   Tad's Tidbits
Greetings,
I hope everyone is having a great week. I hope you were able to be at church on Sunday. It truly was a lovely service and was followed by a great time of fellowship and music during Tea Time.
This Sunday, Pastor Kimberly is on Study Leave and so Rev. Deb McGuire will be preaching. Deb preached here twice during Kimberly's sabbatical last fall and was well received by the congregation. We are thrilled to have her back with us.
Hope to see all of you on Sunday.
Blessings,
Tad Hopp

Cameron House Carnival Prep
On April 22nd, the congregation will be going up to Cameron House after worship to share a meal and assist the Friday Night Club kids in Carnival preparation. We plan to work from 1pm to 4pm on that Sunday. Club leaders can't predict where they will be at in terms of Carnival preparation on that day but we should be prepared to help with both Carnival game making and prize making. You should wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and also glasses or other assisted devices for prizes making. Also if you plan to work on Carnival concession, Anson said they can always use more power drills and work gloves for yourselves.
