Church Family,

This past Sunday, as we continued our series in Acts, we looked at the first moments of the Church after Jesus’ ascension. Things were moving fast and the Church needed to replace Judas with a new twelfth apostle and prepare to fulfill the Great Commission. Certainly they used the best of their wisdom and organizational skills, but above all the Church leaned on prayer and Holy Scripture. They devoted themselves to these things with one accord and in so doing sought God’s will and guidance in all things. Both individually and as a church, we too must constantly lean on prayer and scripture. In light of the faithfulness of the Early Church, we should be relentless in seeking the will of God through these wonderful means he has given to us.

Church Picnic

We will be having a church picnic at Usery Park on April 28th. We have Ramada C1 reserved from 2-6 p.m. (though there is no obligation to stay that whole time) and will bring some yard games as well as water games for the kids. Food will be potluck style, so please sign up in the foyer. Make sure to bring yourself something to drink and a chair to sit in. Entrance into the park is $7 per vehicle.

Women’s Painting Party

Saturday, May 4th, we will be hosting a women’s painting party from 11:00 to 2:30. The cost is $20, which will cover all painting supplies. There is a sign-up sheet in the foyer that includes sign-up for items for a potluck salad bar for lunch. Feel free to invite friends as well.

Save the Date for Kids Camp!

Kids Camp is on the horizon, coming up on June 25th-27th with setup on the preceding Sunday. This is a huge opportunity to minister to our community, reaching not just the kids but parents as well. With how important this event is to our church’s ministry we’d love if you would set aside those days now to come serve and to experience the joy of sharing the Gospel together.

Grace be with you,
