Greetings to All:
Prayers continue to go forth that you and your family are doing well and being blessed.
This Sunday we will celebrate Communion and Native American Ministries Sunday. The communion offering will go to Native American Ministries. There are Five Reasons We Celebrate:
- We celebrate in commitment to racial reconciliation
- We believe in funding justice efforts for Native Americans
- When we give together, we do more than any individual can
- We believe in taking care of our own family
5. We want to model generosity for our communities and future generations.
Your new pastor, Catherine Morgan, has requested that each of you submit your favorite Bible story during the month of May. She plans to use them for her sermons this summer, beginning in July. Please simply respond to this email by hitting "Reply".
