We just learned last week that Jeff & Gail Bigler are going to be grandparents again.  Their daughter, Becky Inman, and her husband, Kevin, are expecting an addition to their family in August.


Everyone is invited to return this evening for our worship service and to remain afterwards for a period of refreshments and informal fellowship in the MP Room as we honor those with Birthdays or Wedding Anniversaries in January.  Care Group A will be in charge of the preparations and clean up afterwards.


If you are interested in contributing in any way to making this coming summer’s Vacation Bible School more effective, be sure to attend the organizational meeting at 4:30 next Sunday in the MP Room.  The tentative dates for this summer’s VBS are August 5-9.


Copies of the 2013 Budget are still available on the table in the foyer.


The events of our lives can sometimes be both harsh and mysterious to us. We don’t know at the time why bad things happen. However, time has a way of helping us to see the hand of the Lord working in our lives. In next week’s lesson, “Meant For Good,” Phil Sanders will examine more closely how the Lord works in our lives.  The weekly program can be seen every Sunday at 7:30 a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.


     Do you have some used eyeglasses (especially ones for reading) lying around or stuffed in a drawer?  If so, and you would like to send them to someone who can use them, bring them and put them in the box on the table in the hallway.  .

There is also a box at the same location for used ink cartridges from inkjet printers and fax machines to help the children at the Shulz-Lewis Children’s Home in Valparaiso, IN.

“Box Tops for Education” and “Campbell’s Labels for Education” are needed by Mid-Western Children’s Home.

Any Greeting Card fronts (except Christmas cards) are needed as well.

If you want to help with any of these ongoing ministries, please bring the items and place them in the appropriate containers on the table in the hallway.
