High School Graduates, if you have not given Joyce one of your Graduation Announcements and senior pictures, please bring them to her by this evening.


Following next Sunday evening’s worship service, we will meet in the MP Room for refreshments as we honor those with Birthdays or Wedding Anniversaries in June.  Care Group C will be in charge of the arrangements.

PICTORIAL DIRECTORY                    

We are making good progress in taking pictures for our 2013 Pictorial Directory.  However, we still have many who have not been photographed yet.  If you have not signed up, please sign the list on the bulletin board before leaving today. Then get with Brad Schrum, Joyce Slatt or Kay Sowinski to be photographed.  Please check your family’s entry regarding correct addresses and phone numbers to make sure we have your correct information.

When our hearts break and tragedy strikes, we desperately need the help of God to comfort and  strengthen us. In tragic times, God has not abandoned or forgotten us. God doesn’t take away every pain, but He helps us through it to become better people.  Phil Sanders will discuss some ways of dealing with this pain in next week’s sermon, “When Your Heart Breaks.”  The program can be seen locally every Sunday at 7:30 a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.
