Children's Music
Rehearsals will begin on Sunday, April 27, for some special music that our children will do as a part of a worship service during the latter part of May (TBD).  Please let Stephen or Melanie Robison know if your child can participate, or if you have other family or friends that would be interested.

Shenandoah District Disaster Auction
The Shenandoah District Disaster Auction will be held the weekend of May 16-17.  There is a need for quilts and wall hangings, baked goods and more, arts, crafts and special projects, donations for oysters for Friday night dinner, theme baskets, and plants and flowers.  If you have an interest in these, please see Judy Ritchie or call her at 432-1910.  There is also a sign-up sheet in the entryway for volunteers to help throughout the whole week of the auction; please take a moment to sign up.  Forms for the 16th Annual SDDA Golf Classic are also available in the church entryway for those interested.

Family Movie Night
Our next Family Movie Night is scheduled for Friday, May 9 at 7:00 P.M.  We will be showing the Disney-Pixar film Monsters University.  Posters and tickets will be available to help publicize the event.  Please start spreading the word.

Vacation Bible School: June 16-20
VBS has been set for June 16-20 (6:30-8:30 pm) for ages 3 through Senior High.  Registration forms (one per child, please) are available on the table in the back of the sanctuary.  Place completed forms in the marked box in the entryway.  This year's theme is "Weird Animals."  Children will be empowered by all the unexpected, and yes, weird ways that Jesus demonstrated unconditional, one-of-a-kind love.  A VBS survey was included in the March 16 bulletin.  Donation sheets will soon be on the table in the entryway. 

We are still in need of volunteers to help us.  Even if you can only help one or two evenings, please fill in a Volunteer Survey Form to let us know when you are available and place it in the box in the entryway.  We will also need persons to take care of small children in the nursery each evening. 

Children's Activities
Our Children's Church meets on the second Sunday of each month.  Following the children's story in the sanctuary, children from preK through fifth grade are invited to meet upstairs in the Sunday School room for Children's Church.  If you are willing to help with this great experience, contact Lauren Puffenbarger.

Harvest Table/My 2 Cents Worth
The Harvest Table is open for garden items or baked goods that will go towards the Global Food Crisis Fund.   My 2¢ Worth Jar sits on the table in the Entryway each Sunday for your donation to help alleviate hunger in Africa. 

 Prayer Chain
Please submit Prayer Chain concerns to either Lura Ritchie or Cheryl Dean.
