We had a good day giving away food on Saturday. We gave away 70 boxes. This is a little more than the last couple of months. I hope we can get back to giving away 80 plus boxes. We did a little more advertising this month plus Gene made a sign which we put up on Rt.441 just before the turn at Donnelly St. Glenn stood there with the sign to try to draw attention to the sign. We had 3 or 4 people see Glenn and the sign. Hats off to Gene for making the sign and Glenn for spending time drawing attention to the sign.
We still have a good number of folks that need our prayers. These folks are mentioned in our bulletin. Don’t forget if you are at home you can find our bulletin here on our website. Just go to the “Media” menu item and click on it.
We are back to all of our routine services. We have Sunday morning Bible classes, Sunday morning worship service, Sunday evening worship service, and Wednesday Bible class. Don’t forget that our Sunday evening services start at 5:00 PM instead of the usual 6:00 PM.
Gene has a new lesson below on his series “The Church.” His title is “Evangelism.” I have a new lesson posted below that begins a new series. The series is on “The Fruit of the Spirit.” This first lesson introduces the series. Don’t forget the study that Glenn Schleibner is doing for our Sunday Adult Class. His class is designed to encourage us in reaching out to those around us who need the Lord. I hope you will come and participate in his class.
Please wear a mask at our Sunday service and Wednesday service. We will continue to do our best to make our building environment safe. Gene has made a little more space in our pews so that we can handle more people without having to bring chairs in the back. If you can, please try to sit as close up front as you can. Also please stay in the same seat you used for Bible class when worship time comes. Don’t forget when you arrive on Sunday morning that communion cups will be at the back of the auditorium for you to pick up on your way in. Also there will be a contribution plate for you to drop your contribution in. This helps us keep everyone safe.
Our Bible classes on Sunday morning at 9:30 AM includes a class for the adults and one for the kids. It’s good that we have our Sunday morning and Wednesday night somewhat back to normal. Hopefully we’ll continue to get back to finally stable again.
I know some of you may not yet feel safe to come to our Sunday service or our Wednesday service but I pray that the Lord will always continue to be with you. I do look forward to everyone coming back again. Gene and I will still be posting our Sunday lessons for all of you to view.

Our next giveaway will be May 8. We will have the list of the food we need in next week’s bulletin and on our bulletin board right next to the foyer. Your generosity as a congregation is bearing fruit in our community. Keep praying for our congregation, our community, our county, our state, and our country. Let your light shine during this time when you have the opportunity.
