SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS: Teachers, please turn in your material as soon as possible as the session of Sunday School is completed.


SIGN SHEET: There is a sign-up sheet in the back of church. Help is needed to drive Mae N from Corsica to Armour daily for her treatment. You will pick her up at 12:45 p.m. for a 1:00 p.m. appointment. It will take about 1 hour of your time. Thank you.


MISCELLANEOUS MAY!  Thank you for your generous support of the 6th-8th grade Sunday School ministry project so far.  There are some miscellaneous items we are collecting this month:  shipping, boys and girls sock (small sizes) and wrapped non-chocolate candy. (Smartees, Starbursts, suckers, tootsie rolls, etc.)  Our biggest need is help with covering the $5/box shipping costs.  Donations may be put in the Guatemala shoebox in back of church or given to Camielle Veenstra or Jan VanGenderen.

THANK YOU: Death is no more than passing from one room to another.

But there’s a difference for me, you know. Because in that room, I will be able to see. Helen Keller

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers, cards and kindness when Karen De Boer passed away and went home to be with the Lord. Thank you to our family and friends who gathered to celebrate the beautiful Life of our special sister we called Kay. God gave our family an awesome gift that blessed our lives far beyond measure.

Delores, Janice, Brent and families


FAMILY FAITH FORMATION TIP: This week, dream with kids about what life in God’s “new heaven and new earth” (Rev. 21) might be like. What would a life without sin, sorrow, pain, and fear look like? What might be different? What might be the same? Talk about how each of you can use the gifts God has given you to bring healing in God’s world even now.
