Our worship services on the 27th of April are at 10:30 (led by our pipe organ) and noon (led by guitars and a mandolin). We also have Sunday School at 9am. The gospel for this Sunday is John 20:19-31 and Pastor Hout’s sermon theme is “Unless I see....” You can read the Bible online at www.biblegateway.com

Prayers of the Church We celebrate upon the birth of Lailah Doench. She is the infant daughter of Rebecca and Andy Doench (daughter of Debra Temple and grand-daughter of Marv and Ruth Hileman). We also celebrate the good health of little Roary Arnold, who is now home. His father and sisters and brother were with us in worship on Easter morning. It was also great to see Hazel Shell with us in worship. Our prayers continue for Sandra Kershner, Tom Boyd, Michael Allikas, Jeanine Russell, Don Stupp, Hazel Shell, Mary Gore, Betty Daily and Bob Greenlee along with our military men: Zach Mathis, Blake Parrett and Rob Greenlee.
Prayer for Passion/Palm Sunday: Almighty and eternal God, the strength of those who believe and the hope of those who doubt, may we who have not seen have faith in you and receive the fullness of Christ’s blessing, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Co-ed Softball starts the 21st Our first game is set for 7:00 on diamond three. We think we are set with a full roster. We look forward to another fun season.
The Essential 100 Here is another great verse from the E-100: John 20:29..............Jesus said to him, ”Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.”
