PICTORIAL DIRECTORY                    

We appreciate the excellent co-operation we are receiving in updating our Pictorial Directory.  If you haven’t signed up yet, please sign the list on the bulletin board and have your family’s picture taken so the new directory will be a more effective tool in helping us as well as future new members in becoming better acquainted with each other.  We want to include everyone who worships with us regularly—even if you are not a member.  If you have any questions, please contact Brad Schrum, Joyce Slatt or Kay Sowinski who are taking the photographs.


We need teachers for the coming year’s classes. If you would like to help teach the Word of God to our children, please sign the list on the hallway bulletin board across from Brad’s office.


Men, if you are able and willing to lead one of the classes during this summer’s Wednesday Adult Series, please contact Brian Games for dates and topics.


The Hutsons are at Circleville this weekend where Everett is speaking during their Family Weekend. They’re planning to return to St.C. later today.


We want to invite everyone to return for this evening’s worship service and remain afterwards for the fellowship in the MP Room during which we will honor those with Birthdays or Wedding Anniversaries in May.  Care Group B is in charge of the arrangements.


There is a sign-out list on the bulletin board in the secretary’s office for you to use when borrowing tables or chairs.  Please sign the list ahead of time so we can make sure they will be available when you need them.  Be sure to record when you return them on the sign-up list as well.


Next Sunday evening is the deadline for bringing the items which we have been asked to donate to help provide care for the children who reside at Potter Children’s Home in Bowling Green, KY.  Please bring any of the following items and place them on the table across from Everett’s office: 13 gallon kitchen trash bags; water; Spray & Shout Stain Remover; canned whole tomatoes and canned refried beans. If you would like to donate cash for fresh foods, please give the money to Everett by next Sunday evening.
