This weeks scripture to memorize!

Lucky Us! We have an extra week to learn this verse. A new verse will be given to us this coming Sunday.
Mothers love nothing more than pictures with their family. Stop by the lobby on Mother’s Day for a complementary photo with those you love most. Pictures will be emailed to you later that week. 
Church Roof Repair

The roof over the nursery and washrooms will be repaired in May.

If you are interested in joining the ad hoc group or have suggestions on possible activities to raise funds to cover the roof repair, please contact Kathy Wyrwas at 451-0414 in the evenings/weekend or email klwyrwas@rogers.com A private message through Facebook is another option. Your prayers regarding this initiative are appreciated.
 
Donations to the “Roof Repair Fund” can also be added to your regular giving. Please indicate this on your envelope or in the comments section for online giving.
 
There will be regular updates on where things stand in the coming weeks. Thank you for your consideration and support.
Celebrate Mom!

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9th. This year is different once again and it may be difficult to celebrate or recognize in the usual way.

Another option is offered for your consideration – Make a donation to the Roof Repair Fund in honour or memory of your Mom. 

The bulletin board by the gym entrance will be set up for you to post names of those you are honouring. You are welcome to add a picture or something that is special to them or makes you smile – a verse, a flower, a recipe … 

Please speak to Kathy Wyrwas for more information.
Nestled away in a corner in the upstairs storage area are two families of chairs.
First, we have the Royal family of chairs dressed in their regal red splendor. Just across from the Royals we have the Stalwart family, a family of robust chairs crafted from fine hardwood to brave any condition. Tying these two families together is the grand old lectern from which many a message has been spoken. After many years of faithful service to God and His Church these furnishings have been retired from active service.

At a recent LAT meeting a decision was made to offer these furnishings to members of the congregation. For a donation to the roof fund, you can give one or more of these chairs and/or lectern a new home and a new avenue of service. Speak to Bev Dow or any member of LAT if you wish to pursue this. Pictures above:
We are in need of people to mow or whipper snip around the church this summer. If you are able to help for a week or two a month (or more) please speak to Bev Dow (472-5383). A ride on mower is provided. Many hands make light work. Thank You!
