The Silent Auction portion of our summer Church Fair has consistently made a significant contribution to the Fair’s success. We have found gift baskets to be incredibly successful auction items but we typically only have a couple to auction. We are very much in need of auction items this year and we hope to have an array of gift baskets to attract attention and add to the success of the Church Fair. Please consider assembling a gift basket on the theme of your choice…gardening, pets, baking, bar-b-que, cosmetics, layette, Disney, golf…the possibilities are endless and it’s a fun project. Gift cards/certificates are great auction items, too, and we welcome any donation. Please consider supporting the church in this unique manner! Please call Darlene Fritz for more information, 520-0511. THANK YOU!

Bible Study

“Post Resurrection Appearances of Jesus Christ”
Monday May 2 & May 9 at 6:30 - 8:00 PM

An open study!! A three (3) week study of the, no-less than 10 post resurrection appearances of Jesus Christ. Following these 2 weeks starting on May 16th we will venture into the season of Pentecost and a study of The Book of Acts. Figuring it will take 8-10 weeks into early July and then a summer break. Purpose of study will be to first, become aware of what the Bible has to say, then, and for us to see what the Bible accounts mean to us and the church today.

Tools you’ll need: Bible. Small note pad or book and pen/pencil.

Coffee, tea, and some light refreshments available. Who likes popcorn? See Pastor Murray for any questions and details.   455-6768.
