Hello, My Name Is...

          THIS Sunday, EASTER Sunday, we begin a brand new message series entitled "Hello My Name Is…" Our focus will be on the ability of Jesus Christ to transform peoples' lives. This is a great opportunity for you to invite someone to come to church with you that could be living far from God, or someone who has simply drifted away from the church, and is now disconnected from relationship with God. We still have invite cards in our foyer designed to make it easier for you to invite people to come to church with you this Sunday. Pick up some invite cards, pray over them, and make an invitation that could lead to a transformed life. Remember, we have FREE BREAKFAST and KIDS ACTIVITIES at 9am this Sunday. We will also have nursery care provided for those with small children.

Thank You!
        Thank you to Cub Scout Pack 90 for picking up sticks, branches, and trash from our church property. Pack 90 recently began meeting at our building again. Leaders include Tim and Monica Sedlacek. (Girl Scout Troop 20042 also meets at our property. Their leader is our own Amanda McColery).

Nursery on the Move

        On Sunday, April 13, we announced that our nursery will be moving to a larger room in the basement of our building. Due to noise pollution from the nursery into the sanctuary, and concerns about security, safety, and space, the nursery will find its new home in a larger room on the south end of our basement.
        The new nursery space will be modified to provide easy access to restrooms, and will include a half wall to divide toddlers and infants. A phone line will be installed in case of an emergency. The project will be funded by an anonymous donation of $5000.
        The nursery move will prompt other classes to move as well. We plan to have our nursery, preschool, and grade school classrooms all on the south end of our basement. This "Kid Zone" will be a fun, exciting place for children to learn about our great God. Junior and senior high rooms will be on the north end of our basement and will be equally as fun and exciting!
        The "old" nursery will be transformed into one large room that will house a Leadership Center, which will include our library, computers, and other resources for our leaders and members. The Leadership Center will also be used as a meeting space for a Sunday School class, small groups, core groups, ministry team meetings, prayer meetings, and other such gatherings.
        Please be patient with us as we modify our building. Our goal is to be more effective stewards of the property God has entrusted to us. Thank you for your prayers as we work to be more and more effective at producing fully-devoted followers of Jesus!

What's New?
          With the launching of our seven ministry areas and 34 ministry teams, many noticeable changes are beginning. As we evaluate our current ministry effort, work to improve the quality and consistency of our ministries, and empower ministry leaders to take responsibility for their teams, changes are inevitable. However, we can learn to lean on Jesus through whatever changes life throws at us.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever" (Hebrews 13:8).

Thank You!
          Thank you to Syndee West, Jalan Fields, Jeff Van Winkle, Rachael Cole, and David Canfield for their moving worship drama "These Hands." You did a wonderful job at drawing us in to worship our great God. Thanks also our Drama Team Leader Lorie Van Winkle for directing the drama.
