Spring into Summer
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and to all who share motherly care and concern! Your love and compassion makes a difference in this often challenging world.

While the weather may not feel much like spring or summer on this Mother’s Day weekend and the opening of fishing season, we know it’s coming. And with that reality comes family celebrations, graduations, opening up of cabins, and the anticipation of vacation plans. My prayer is that travels will be accomplished safely and the experiences and relationships filled with joy and delight!

Please remember that while you are gone the work and ministry at Rejoice continues- which means the challenge to become more financially healthy also continues. (If you are not already taking advantage of the Simply Giving program that automatically - according to your specific instructions - sends your offering to Rejoice, you might want to check into this option.)

Blessings and peace!
Pastor Marlene
