"When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. " Acts 2:1-4
Men's Breakfast - May 19th 8:00 am
Join us downstairs as the men of the church fix food for all that wake up early and are hungry (so if women want to show up, you're always welcome).  Please come and enjoy your coffee, orange juice, eggs and usually a surprise, not to mention fellowship with some wonderful people of the church.
Muffin Sunday

Thank you all for your generous support this year, It has been overwhelming.

Hi Ladies:

At the previous luncheon (which was a ton of fun!) it was decided by the ladies that were present that they'd like to go to Goombay's on Tuesday, May 22nd for lunch. There was some discussion that Goombay's might not be open yet on Tuesdays, but that will be confirmed prior to the 22nd. IF Goombay's is not open yet on Tuesdays, then the luncheon will take place at Coastal Provisions.

Linda Hall has graciously volunteered to email all of you several days prior to the next luncheon to let you know definitively where the luncheon will take place. She will also make the reservation at either Goombay's or Coastal Provisions.

I hope all of you have a wonderful remaining week, and we'll see one another again this Sunday at church.

God's blessings to you all,

Cher ❤

Volunteers ARE Needed 
Oh my, I've volunteered, now what am I expected to do!!!
Vacation Bible School Group Leader Assistance
1.     Do I need experience before I volunteer or are you going to ACTUALLY show me what to do?
No experience or preparation is needed. Group Leader Assistants are responsible for leading a group of children from site to site according to a schedule
2.     How often will I need to step up and serve?
VBS will be Monday, June 25 through Friday, June 29, 9:00 am -12:15 pm. Volunteers are asked to arrive by 8:30 for Pastor’s Devotion. You do not have to attend all five days to participate, any or all days are greatly appreciated!

3.     Who do I get the instructions from or who is basically in charge (who do you call?) Nancy Dunlap

4.     What is the minimum expected of me? 
Group Leader Assistants should remain with their group until children are dismissed at the end of the morning. Group Leaders help Site Leaders as needed.

5.     Are the supplies that are required supplied by the church or do I have to get them before hand? VBS supplies the materials.

6.     Do I get a helper? Yes, at least two Group Leaders are assigned to each group.

7.   Are any meetings required and if so, when and how often? We have our next and final meeting on Sunday, May 20th, after the service.
If anyone has any further questions just ask me, I will be happy to help. Let me know you're if interested in helping.

Upcoming Silent Prayer - Sunday May 20 Friendships” 
  1. Lord, as The Scriptures says, “Bad company corrupts good character.” So Lord, help chose our friends wisely.
  2. Lord, help us believe that “friendship with the world is hatred toward You".
  3. Lord, give us each, a godly friend to help us be healthier.

"But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you." John 16:6-15
