After a little sickness and some traveling conflicts
the Friendship Luncheon is
back on its usual schedule of the first Wednesday of the month at noon. These luncheons are intended to provide

donation box is provided along with the encouragement to bring a canned good

It is time to think about our church Camp
Fund. With the cost of a
week at summer camp going up each year the Trustees decided to raise the amount
we give to each child to help defray those expenses. This year we will provide $200 toward the cost of a week at
Christian camp. If you would like
to help in this effort you may mark your donation “Camp Fund” and just put it
in the offering plate. Also note
that on May 6 we will take up a “noisy offering” in Sunday Worship
that will be designated for the Camp Fund. We encourage you all to save your coins and then dump them
into the metal cans the kids will pass during the morning offering. We want to make a lot of noise for the youth!
Take advantage of the Ladies Tea Party on
Saturday, May 12, to celebrate with your mother or invite a neighbor to come
