OUR SPECIAL OFFERING for the month of May is designated for

HEALTH CONCERNS:  Continue to be in prayer for Dan Derogee.

 Ken Wylie underwent stent surgery on Friday.  Please keep

 him in your prayers.  For all other praise reports and prayer

 concerns, see the insert in your bulletin today.




THIS SUMMER we would like to incorporate a psalm each week in

 worship.  This will be done through a variety of ways - traditional

 hymn, new (contemporary) arrangement of the hymn, or

 responsorial setting of the hymn. The rendering of this psalm will be

 done creatively through use of the choir, praise team, and/or soloists. 

 We would like to request that you provide us with your favorite psalm

 as a starting point.  If you feel comfortable, we would invite you to

 share during worship why this psalm has impacted your spiritual

 journey.  Otherwise we could put a write up in the bulletin or share

 that you selected this particular psalm.  It would be wonderful to

 have your presence in worship the day the psalm is utilized in

 worship, so please give us your name, psalm and dates that you are

 available.  You can jot it down and place in collection plate, or leave

 on the desk in the office.
