Spring Break and Senior Sunday (Advance Notice)

Hey Folks:

There is no Explorers class or Youth Group either this Sunday or next due to Spring Break or as we call it around the office, Holy Week. There are a lot of great services this week so if you are in town, so up!

Graduating seniors are honored each year in a service where an adult important to the soon to be graduates share a memory of the youth and tells the congregation of their upcoming plans. This year the service is on May 17 at 10:45am. Seniors, please identify someone you would like to speak on your behalf, contact them, and let me know who you will have speaking for you.

Silent Auction Going - Adult Volunteer Request

Mission Trip Youth and Parents:
The Silent Auction kicked off this past Sunday with 70 items. We will still see a few more creep in over the next week or so - a few less than last year, but bidding has started out strong. The youth are coordinating their volunteering to help, but I would also like to ask for 1 or 2 adults to help over the next 3 weeks (8th, 15th, and 22nd). It would be nice if someone was there around 9:00 to help get  the stuff out and set up and stay through the start of the 10:45 service. Then another for after the service and to stay through 12:30 or until it wraps up and to help put everything away again. Mary or I will be there all the time for questions and information.
If you would like to help, please email me ( ) when you are available and I'll put you on my schedule.
