Announcements
Easter Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who helped make Holy Week and Easter such a blessing. So many volunteers were involved in making this all possible; the Choirs, the Musicians, the Sound and Tech teams, Scripture Readers, Ushers, Deacons, Greeters, the Flower Guild, the Visual Worship team, Children’s and Student Volunteers, Parking Lot attendants, coffee makers and the Staff !

A special thanks to Kate Mellon and Gail Hughson for the Easter photo opportunity as well as the creative ideas and gifts to help families continue discussions about the Easter message.

Deacons' Fund Collection

Re-Parenting with Dolores Marciniec


When: May 2, 9, 16, 23 (Thursdays)
9:30-11:00a
Where: Phillips Hall
Cost: Free
Explore your family heritage...Understand yourself...Grow as a child of God.

The Bible frequently portrays family lines and the ripple effects of decisions through generations. Ripple effects can be spotted in our own lives. Our time together will show how formative our histories and experiences can be. We can be profoundly impacted by things we may not recognize. Insight is often the launch point for meaningful change.

Dolores will show us how to construct a  genogram. A genogram can shed light on how your past has predisposed you to participate in your life, your marriage, your parenting, and your other relationships.  

Some of our past life experiences--and the lessons learned from these experiences--serve us well to be Christ followers and some do not. Together let us see how God's Word and Power can re-parent us so that we can walk in a manner worthy of our calling and indeed be a new creation.  

To sign up, contact Amy Canute at acanute@comcast.net  or click on the registration button below. Please do so as soon as possible so we can gauge the number of seats needed. Feel free to invite friends. If you need to miss a session, that's no problem. 
Parent Support Group - You Are Not Alone (YANA)
Parenting is hard work! Some parents find themselves with unique challenges in raising their children, which can be overwhelming and isolating. A new support group for caregivers of children with unique struggles and needs. We will encourage one another while building a community of support, maintaining confidentiality.
Meetings on the 3rd Monday of the month from 7-8:30p . Registration is required.

Women's Evening Bible Study
Join in fellowship with other women as Rachel Frase endeavors on a 4-week journey through Ephesians with us. This will be a rich time of delving into the Word of God together. All women are welcome to join!


May 20-21, 2019
An interactive two-day training that shows us how to use God’s Biblical peacemaking principles so we can learn how to help ourselves, as well as others, when we encounter conflict in our lives.

Student Ministries
What about Jesus has intrigued you enough to investigate Christianity?
On Easter Sunday, our 6th-12th grade group (re)discovered the story of Thomas' investigation of the risen Jesus in John 20:24-29. Thomas had placed a burden of proof upon God, and he needed to see the evidence firsthand. That encounter happened, and the truth about Jesus became verified and personal for Thomas.
We challenged students to confront the tough questions:
Is the Easter story true?
Does God really love ME ?
To help students explore God's word and gain insights into these questions and others, we are giving away two FREE books:
1. Cold Case Christianity was written by a former atheist and homicide detective, J. Warner Wallace. He used strategies from his former job to investigate the internal and external evidence for the Bible. Is the story of Jesus a conspiracy? Wallace makes a compelling response.

2. Who is This Man? explores the world-changing life of Jesus. If we ever had doubts about Jesus' mission, love, justice and more, this book encourages readers back into the Bible to better understand the Savior King.
The books are FREE of charge, but we are requiring each student to connect with one of their volunteer small group leaders after reading them. Please encourage your kids to check out these resources and connect with a mentor committed to encouraging and challenging them!
