Ladies Fellowship: May 16th, 5:30pm:
Our Ladies Fellowship is a part of our Women's Ministry that offers many different events for women to get together and fellowship. We have in the past, met for dinner, went painting, had game night, built supply boxes for the military among other things. This ministry works hard to schedule something every month. This month we are hosting a game night. Bring your own dinner and or snacks on May 16th, at 5:30pm in the South building!
This week, pray…
Monday: that we are aware of hurting people around us.
Tuesday: that we don’t hide our own hurts buts but share them.
Wednesday: for a Godly heart that appreciates God’s goodness.
Thursday: that our country has hope for the future.
Friday: for Pastors and their staff to continue to minister in these times.
Saturday: that God extends mercy to us.
Sunday: for your "three" people that don't know Jesus.
Verse of the week: Proverbs 28:13
"He who conceals his sins does not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy."
Every Sunday at 10:00 service, we will be in-person with Bible stories, and other fun activities. Don't miss this opportunity to get together with other kids and celebrate Jesus together! Sign up here or contact Nancy for more information.
