      The Semi-Annual Meeting is on May 7 at 6:30 p.m.

      If you’d like your monetary contribution to go to benevolence funds, please use an envelope provided in the pews or specify “missions” on the memo line of your check.

      Food Pantry needs: hot dogs, frozen vegetables, and other frozen food items.

      Don’t forget about our Church Library – find lots of books and DVDs to entertain, inspire, teach, and nourish the soul! Wayne Clark just read The Mind of Jesus and highly recommends it.

      We would like to purchase an upgraded computer for use in our worship services, because our old one is no longer up to some of the tasks required of it.  We aim to spend about $600 on this, and are asking the congregation to contribute toward this need.  If you decide to respond to this appeal, please designate your gift on an envelope or on your check.











“Only those who see the invisible can do the impossible!”


God will answer when to thee,

Not a possibility

Of deliverance seems near;

It is then He will appear.

God will answer when you pray;

Yea, though mountains block the way,

At His word, a way will be

E’en through mountains, made for thee.

God who still divides the sea,

Willingly will work for thee;

God, before whom mountains fall,

Promises to hear thy call.
