 Pray for Our Pastor:  Please join us in room seven 10 minutes before each service to pray for our pastor and for his message to touch the hearts of those listening.

April Mission of the Month: Words of Hope is an international media ministry working to build the church throughout the world. They focus on areas that are hard to reach with the gospel, either because of poverty, geography, or social antagonism toward Christianity.

April Calling Team:  Please call Tod V and Brian W with any special concerns or requests.

 We are pleased to administer the Sacrament of Baptism to Jessi F this morning, and welcome her as a new member.

 Join Us After Service Today:  We will be having an “Enhanced Coffee Hour” to enjoy baked goods and fellowship with each another. There will also be an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids! Thank you to all who brought in baked goods to share, and to the Burcham Small Group for coordinating and providing the candy for the Easter Egg Hunt.

CONNECT Wednesday: The kids will be painting flower pots in preparation for planting next week.  They will also be doing puzzles, and learning about the miracle of Jesus.

Sunday April 28, the Burcham small group will be surrounding a struggling young mother from Flint with love and support.  There will be a brunch in our room after service so that we can chat with her and shower her with diapers and wipes.  She needs newborn to size 5 diapers as she has a young daughter, and a new little one on the way.  Diapers and wipes are a necessity that Medicaid does not provide. Please come and join us in showing her Christian love.
