Weekly Update

April Memory Verse:

If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you."  - Romans 8:11


Last Sunday evening we had a great time beginning here at the church building and then over at the Wakefield Bowladrome for our Annual ‘Pinny Crusade’ event.  As the name suggests, this time together was more than just about having fun, it was a creative way to raise money for our annual missions collection known as Penny Crusade.  We had over 20 bowlers join us and based on the pledges that were made by many there will be a significant impact in this week’s final Penny Crusade collection.  

There were several contests going on during the night and here are the results:

- The total number of pins knocked down was 2,407, which made Andy Rice the winner of that contest with his guess of 2,410.

- The total number of pennies in the jar in the Fellowship Hall was 2,426, which made Jack Waaramaa the winner of that contest with his guess of 2,313.  

- George Peabody was the only person to bowl a strike, making him the winner of the strike contest.  Congratulations, George!

- The team with the most number of pins knocked down was Team Japan, consisting of the Waaramaa family, who knocked down a total of 538 pins.  

- Overall, bowlers from Team A-J knocked down 1,069 pins, while bowlers from Team K-Z came through to knock down 1,338.  Congratulations Team K-Z!

Thank you to all who participated in Pinny Crusade either through bowling or pledges, and for the many who have contributed to our Penny Crusade Collection.  What a blessing to participate in the work of the Lord all around the world through Advent Christian World Outreach!

Each month from now until November we'll be highlighting the items needed for the shoeboxes we'll pack for Operation Christmas Child.  The items collected will help us pack shoeboxes for our OCC Carnival Night.  You can place your donations in the box at the back of the sanctuary.  For the month of April, we are collecting:  hairbrushes, combs, and girls hair accessories.  In prior months we've been collecting:  boys/girls socks, wash cloths, boys/girls underwear, toothbrushes, toothbrush covers, toothpaste, bar soap, and travel-size tissues.



All ladies in the church are invited to attend a special breakfast in honor of Mother's Day on Saturday, May 9 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 please let Pastor Andy or Pastor Joshua know in advance.  Also, feel free to bring a friend!



On Saturday, May 16, the men of our church are invited to join us in the Fellowship Hall for a light breakfast, followed by an effort to help clean up the park across the street from the church building (Dunton Park). All men and boys are invited to join us!  



It's that time of year already!  On both May 17 and May 24 we'll be taking a collection that will go toward Camp Scholarships for students in or connected to our church family who are attending Christian summer camps.  Please prayerfully consider how you might contribute to this valuable opportunity.  Also, if you need a camp scholarship form please speak to Pastor Joshua.  The forms will be due by the end of May.
