Quarterly Summit Success
Following last Sunday’s worship service, we held our April Church Business meeting. Ron and I want to thank all of you for staying for the extra time and participating in the meeting. The number one item was the approval of the team that will be responsible for the pastoral search. They were approved and a huge landmark has been met. Please pray for this team of people as they must now sort through their daily lives to finds some common ground to be able to meet regularly.
The Season of Easter comprises seven Sunday’s ending on Pentecost Sunday. Over the coming weeks the sermons will be based upon the Lectionary Texts from the Book of Acts. These texts give us a picture of what Post-Resurrection Life looked like in the early church.
Westminster Hunger Outreach
This outreach will occur on Saturday, April 24 at 9:00 a.m. It will be a drive-thru distribution expected to serve some 200 families. Here are the requirements for volunteers:
We have had a committed band in the past and new people are welcome to join in. The crew at Westminster always appreciates our involvement.
Upcoming Worship Events
One of the things we learned as a result of COVID was that outdoor worship can be fun. As the weather gets warmer and the weather more predictable, we plan on reinstituting outdoor worship again!
The pastor is also looking at dedicating one Sunday morning as a healing service. People will have the opportunity to come forward to be anointed, and be prayed over for healing. More information will be forthcoming.
PRAYER UPDATES FROM BANGKOK
Pray for Sweetie and Nina, who left NightLight but are really struggling. Pray God’s kindness will lead them to repentance, and they will have the courage to come back and get the help they need.
