birthday cake will be provided. Instead of presents for ourselves, our
mission project will be Micah Welcome Home Baskets. Please look for a
sign up sheet in the narthex and indicate which item(s) you will bring to the
General Meeting so that a basket can be prepared for Micah to provide to
families as they move from homelessness to a house or apartment.
All women of the church are invited to participate in this birthday
celebration which is sponsored by Peace UMW.

Calling all ASP volunteers...
The week that is most likely for us to serve is June 26-July 2.
However, we do not have enough volunteers signed up to create a
team at this time. We are currently behind schedule in the
registration process. The ideal team is five youth (14 yrs. and
above) and two adults. Currently, there is room at one center for a
team of ten so we COULD send a hybrid team if enough interested
folks sign up. Please do so on the clipboard in the narthex. All
eligible youth are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible for
this wonderful opportunity. You'll never forget the sense of
accomplishment after you help make life for a family warmer, safer, and
drier. If you ARE interested or have any questions, please sign up and
leave your contact information on the sign up list, ask an ASP volunteer
about their experience, or call the church office.

Youth Group
We had a wonderful egg hunt on Palm Sunday and thanks to all
children that attended. A special thanks to youth and families for
filling and hiding the eggs and helping with refreshments.
April 17 after church, the youth will join Hillcrest youth group at
the movies to see, God's Not Dead 2.
