This Saturday, April 26, we will be hosting the Annual 'Pinny Crusade' for Penny Crusade. This is a fun event for our Church family, a great opportunity to invite your friends, and a wonderful way to support the work of missions around the world! We will be meeting at the church at 5:00pm for a quick introduction and pizza, then heading over to the Wakefield Bowladrome for a 6:00pm start to our Pinny Crusade. (If you need to meet us directly at the Wakefield Bowladrome, please meet at 5:55pm) Each pin knocked down will earn pennies that go towards helping missionaries on the front lines in spreading the Gospel. The more people and the more pins knocked down, the better! So bring a friend and help us help our missionaries. After the bowling we'll come back to the church for ice cream.
Also, we are providing the opportunity for the people to make a pledge for Penny Crusade through this event. If you're not much of a bowler, or even if your are, you can pledge a certain amount of money for each pin knocked down. For instance, you could pledge to give 1 penny for every pin knocked down by Team A-K, or 5 cents for every penny knocked down by Team L-Z, etc. (Last year a pledge of 1 penny per pin would have been about a $30 donation.) If you'd like to make a pledge you can call/email the church office, or simply add something to this Sunday's Penny Crusade collection.


This Sunday will be our 6th and final collection for our annual offering for "Penny Crusade." This weekly collection will go to support the missions work of our denomination.  Plan to save and give your pennies (and dollar bills!) as the Lord leads so that we can help support God's work around the world!  Once again we're having a collection competition between Team A-K and Team L-Z (divided up by last name).  Our cumulative goal for this year is to raise $5,000.  Here are the results so far:
Team A-K Team L-Z Total % of Goal
$1,193.78 $1,112.99 $2,306.77 46.14%


All are invited to join us after the worship service this Sunday, April 27 for a luncheon and to hear Meghan Holden's mission presentation from her recent trip to Honduras.  Please join us for lunch - which will give us a flavor of Honduras - and then for Meghan's report about her trip and what God has done in and through her.   


There will be a brief church business meeting following the worship service on Sunday, May 4.  This meeting is to discuss and vote on a proposal to spend building funds on a need at the parsonage.  If you have any questions in advance of the meeting you may speak to Pastor Andy or Eric Waaramaa (moderator).  


All ladies in the church are invited to attend a special breakfast in honor of Mother's Day on Saturday, May 10 here at the church at 9:00am.  The breakfast is not just for moms, but for all ladies of all ages!  There is no need to bring anything - just come and enjoy a breakfast and fellowship with the other ladies in our church!  If you're planning to come and didn't sign-up at the back of the sanctuary beginning next week so we can plan accordingly.  Also, feel free to invite a friend!
