“If I work for God because I know it brings me the good opinion of those whose good opinion I wish to have, I am a Pharisee. If I love Jesus Christ, I will serve humanity, though men and women treat me like a doormat.”

the camp. If you have signed up in the past,
please update to make sure Black Lake is still the recipient of these community rewards. Since 2014 they have received over $7,000 through this program. Please see Vicki for a copy of the instructions. What a great way to help our camp.

Another Coming Event:

See Pastor Jim for more details if you are interested.


What makes you think of how great God is?
The scented flowers, the hummingbird’s whiz?
The amazing animals of so many kinds?
Rocks with precious stones and other “finds”?
Fruits and berries, so many flavors
Tastes so sweet that our tongue savors?
Historical findings that verify His Word,
Explaining truth of what people had thought absurd
All these things no matter how odd
Show the love and power of Almighty God.

HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY to all those ladies in our church family whom God has called into that very challenging and important role \of loving husbands and raising godly children. Although other women in God’s family have been chosen for other equally important roles in His kingdom, we pray today for mothers that God will enable you by His Spirit to carry out your unique roles with grace, love, and godliness.

Yes. It
is that time again! Next Sunday will be another PRAISE AND TESTIMONY SERVICE. This is your chance to prayerfully think about what God has done or been doing In your life (perhaps including how you were saved) and then to come ready next Sunday to share some good news with your church family about God’s love. So do you have an idea? Can’t wait to hear from you next week.

Mother’s Love
A mother’s love is nine months old
By the time her child is born.
God gives her time to prepare her heart
To welcome her baby home.
A mother’s love is next to God’s
Loyal and free and true;
We thank you, God, for mother’s love
It helps us learn to be like You.

Thanks to all of you in our church family who took some time out last Thurs. to participate as you were able in the National Day of Prayer. (Event at Cheney was very inspiring!) Now we look forward to God’s activity in response, as we continue to pray for His will to be done in our country, in our neighborhoods, and in our families, true?

ATTENTION ALL LADIES – Helping Hands (Women’s Ministries) is having a potluck luncheon this Tuesday, May 9th, starting at 11:00 A.M. We are excited to have Linda Sauke as our guest speaker. She was in Africa when one of our bins of supplies arrived at Tandala Hospital as they were opening and sorting it. She will tell us of their excitement and reactions to what was shipped. All ladies are welcome to come join us for a great time of fellowship and potluck lunch together. We look forward to seeing you.

From Kim Triller, Executive Director at Care Net. “Thank you for participating in the 2017 Baby Bottle Campaign. We are grateful
