We have several children and youth who have attended, and LOVED, the Methodist camps in our area. We’ll hear from some of them today during our Time With Young Christians. We’ll also ask for your financial support for camp scholarships, too!
What will you do with you John Bible study book now that the class is over? If you’d like, you can donate it! We’re sending all the leader guides and DVDs, and any participant books we receive, to the PNW conference Regional Media Center so that other churches can use them for Bible studies in the future. If you’d like to donate your book, please put it in Laurie Edwards’ mailbox in the office. Thank you!
It’s time to re-lend some Kiva funds! We’ve been reimbursed another $1,000 from those to whom we’ve lent it through Kiva, an international non-profit, with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Kiva celebrates and supports people looking to create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities through small businesses, accessing clean energy, or going to school. Look for your ballot to determine who gets funded on May 7th!
Yummy, yummy, yummy! Who doesn’t like a good brownie, cookie, pie or muffin? Come to the Youth Bake Sale, May 7, Sunday, after worship and indulge your sweet tooth!
All proceeds will benefit the Human Rights Campaign, an organization that advocates for LGBTQ+ equality and educates the public about LGBTQ+ issues.
