6th Sunday of Easter – Lowdown Underground with Dorothy Rose, Merle Sparlin Fishing Derby & More!

 

Week of May 1, 2018 – In This Issue:

SUNDAY MAY 6 – Sixth Sunday of Easter
“Abide in Love”
Pastor Peggy Hillmon Preaching
Confirmation Sunday
Communion at 9:00AM & 10:30AM services
 
Synopsis: In the letter to the fledgling Corinthian church, Paul offers a laundry-list of what love looks like. We can almost imagine that he is writing in response to some un-loving behavior that is going on (in the church, you say?!). When it came down to it, Jesus said that the litmus test for faithfulness to a loving God, is love. Bottom line. Have a question about what you should do in any given situation? Gauge your actions on the love meter.

SUNFLOWER ELEMENTARY PARTNERSHIP
Partnering with our local school 
 
There is a Sunflower Elementary family in need of a set of bunk beds. The grandparents have one grandchild living with them now, but will soon have an additional grandchild living with them. 
 
We are looking to connect with school with a bunk bed you might be discarding, or donations to go toward a purchase of a set for the family.
