"And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them."
Br. Scott and Sue joined us again after their visit to California which included a coastal cruise and time with their grandchildren. Welcome back!
Br. Scott led a beautiful Morning Prayer service this past Sunday. His sermon reviewed the many gifts of the Holy Spirit. While no one is given all the gifts of the Holy Spirit, each of us have been given skills and gifts. As Paul reminds us in 1 Corinthians 12 "For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ . . . [we] have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many".
Thank you Scott for the beautiful service!
After services we enjoyed some wonderful company and snacks downstairs! Thank you to everyone who brought food!
Fr. Dennis will continue with the creeds in his next confirmation class scheduled for Sunday, June 4. Everyone is invited to attend these classes! Thank you Fr. Dennis for these very informative lessons!
On the Sundays Fr. Dennis is not with us, Sue will lead a short Prayer Meeting downstairs starting at 10:30.
Sue continues to lead our weekly online prayer group on Discord every Thursday at 2 pm. Thank you so much Sue for taking the time each week to lead our prayers! If you have a special prayer request but cannot join us, please send your request to Sue. Please contact me if you would like to join us on Discord.
Our next Women's Bible Study is on Wed. May 31 @ 11 am at the church. We will use "The First 24" for our study guide. This is an in depth study of Mark 1:21-45 - the first 24 hours of Jesus' public ministry. The guide is available on Amazon. Please remember to bring the book, your bible, and a lunch!

During the past week Agnes, Diane, Teresa, and I repainted a large part of the floor in the basement! We hope to finish the hallway and bathrooms this week. Nothing like a fresh paint job to improve the looks of a room!
Rose Marie has arranged for Earl's funeral service on Saturday, June 17 at 2 pm at the church. Fr. Dennis will be officiating. All members are invited to attend.
Almighty God, our heavenly Father, in whose hands are the living and the dead; We give thee thanks for all those thy servants who have laid down their lives in the service of our country. Grant to them thy mercy and the light of thy presence, that the good work which thou hast begun in them may be perfected; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord. Amen
