SERMON SERIES WHEN YOU PRAY
The Lord’s Prayer
When the disciples of Jesus asked him to teach them how to pray, his response was to teach them a prayer. The pattern for prayer that Jesus taught covers everything that stresses or troubles us. Lent is a time to go deeper spiritually. This sermon series on the Lord’s Prayer will teach us how to live more deeply in the Kingdom of God, on earth, even as it is in heaven.

LEADERSHIP UPDATE!
In March, Brian Ivey reported on the progress of the three teams that make up our “Children’s Ministry Task Force” whose combined goals are to prepare the way for our church to fill the unbelievably big shoes Janet French will be leaving. The first is the Children's Music Program and Children's Ministry Environment team which will be looking at music and its role in our children’s Sunday programming and then make recommendations on how to change/improve these efforts.   Also, they will be assessing our children’s ministry facilities and make recommendations on how we might improve this area for more effective ministry. Things like lighting, furniture, cleanliness and order will be looked at.   Team #2 is the New Staff Role & Curriculum (A.K.A. the “Janet 2.0” committee.)   They have outlined the top qualifications for our new applicant which are, a passion for children, a strong sense of faith, experience in Christian ministry and to have a background in children's education.   They have been soliciting feedback from like-minded churches that have recently gone through the same process as well as reviewing potential options for new curriculum software.   Lastly, there is the Sunday Scheduling and Volunteerism team which will be evaluating the current schedules for worship and children's ministry and comparing to other church schedules. They may recommend changing the schedules to make it easier for kids to attend and will be soliciting feedback along the way. In addition, they will be evaluating how we engage with the church to increase volunteer support to keep these programs going!   We ask for your prayers for these teams, as well as our next children’s ministry coordinator, wherever they may be today, for the Holy Spirit’s presence and influence to guide and bless everyone involved with this process. We are thankful that so many have answered the call to step into these teams to do such important work for the future of our children’s Christian education.
Don't miss our annual non-competitive Easter Egg hunt! For families with children in 4th grade and under on our front lawn.   There will be a special toddler egg hunt as well.  Help needed at 9:30AM for hiding the eggs. QUESTIONS OR WILLING TO HELP? Contact Janet French!

LADIES' NEXT BOOK DISCUSSION
When: Tuesday, May 21 at 7pm
Where: Becky Douglas’ home (see church directory for address)
State of Wonder by Ann Patchett is the next book we will be delving into. There are used copies available in the Narthex for $5. From Amazon - "Award-winning,   New York Times  bestselling author, Ann Patchett, returns with a provocative and assured novel of morality and miracles, science and sacrifice set in the Amazon rainforest. Infusing the narrative with the same ingenuity and emotional urgency that pervaded her acclaimed previous novels  Bel Canto Taft Run The Magician's Assistant , and  The Patron Saint of Liars , Patchett delivers an enthrallingly innovative tale of aspiration, exploration, and attachment in  State of Wonder —a gripping adventure story and a profound look at the difficult choices we make in the name of discovery and love."
