FIRST COMMUNION FOR YOUTH MEMBERS Today is a special day in the lives of three of our young people and their families: Camden Heinold, son of James and Shantille Heinold; Collin Ishcomer, son of Jason and Christy Ishcomer; and Wyatt Youngblood, son of Zach and Kelly Youngblood, will be joining the congregation and all of God’s people in Holy Communion. They have completed the Communion class and are excited to join the Lord and us in this Sacrament. May we all grow in the grace we receive in the Lord’s Supper. Welcome to the table of the Lord!

FLOWERS FOR LUKE BUSCH The flowers are in memory of Luke Busch, son of Andy and Dana, and brother of Rachel Jones. Luke’s birthday would have been May 10th. As we remember Luke, let us take comfort in the hope and assurance of the resurrection to eternal life through Jesus Christ! Because Jesus is risen, we have life by grace through faith in Him. The flowers were given by Fran and Tim Koller, Luke’s aunt and uncle. Thank you to them for their remembrance of Luke.
PARKING LOT FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN The congregation voted to resurface the parking lot west of the facility. We have a fundraising campaign going to defray the cost of resurfacing. Targeted contributions will be: to donate a parking space for $750, to donate half a parking space for $375, or whatever someone may want to give toward the resurfacing, and any amount is appreciated. The contributions are donations toward the parking lot, not buying a reserved space. Thank you for your contributions toward resurfacing the parking lot.
