Beginning this week, the ladies class will be meeting at 6:30 instead of 6:00. The class should conclude around 7:30.


From now until May 17 we will be collecting commodities for Potter Children’s Home. Needed items are: 30 gallon trash bags, spray & wash, bathroom tissue, bottled water, olive oil, chocolate pudding mix, and snack crackers.


All the men and boys are invited to the monthly breakfast at Eat ‘N Park this coming Saturday at 8:30 a.m.


The next weekend (May 2-3), Keaton Forsythe, a potential youth minister, will be coming to spend time with the teens and the congregation. He will be leading a teen devotional on Saturday night (6pm at the McDiffits), leading a class for teens and parents on Sunday morning in the MP room, and will be presenting the Sunday night message. Please be praying for Keaton and this process.


The teen devotional with Keaton Forsythe will be at the McDiffitts at 6pm. Please bring snacks/desserts and drinks to share.


     The evening of May 17th, Rick Shur from the World Bible School will be speaking about their work around the world and about local outreach opportunities.


There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the back hallway for anyone interested in receiving a complimentary subscription to The Christian Chronicle (a brotherhood newspaper).


     “And Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why are you discussing the fact that you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive or understand? Are your hearts hardened? Having eyes do you not see, and having ears do you not hear? And do you not remember?”  (Mark 8:17-18 ESV)

Why do we have trouble keeping knowledge and priorities on top of our mind in the daily grind of life?  What practices might help keep the reality of God’s powerful presence in our life each day fresh?
