Easter Update
The sunrise service was AWESOME! Perfect timing as the sun was just coming up. We had a lot of folks there, lots of visitors, wonderful people, and the MUSIC PLAYED BY STACEY, BILL, AND JOEL WAS PERFECT!! Pastor's sermon was very inspiring. Happy Easter to everyone. He is Risen Indeed!!!! Cher and Gary
Sunrise Service attendance: 33

The 9 am Service was great and I assume the others were as well. It has been another great day that the Lord made, and a special one.  Harold Gracey
9:00 Service attendance: 146

I definitely thank all of you for stepping up when I wasn't there! Happy Easter and love you all! Sandy

Thanks to all that helped with the blankets. We had 33 blankets, hats and outfits donated. You are awesome.

Believe 11:00 service had 43 in attendance. This # maybe be a little off but not by much as short people might not see all (Bill D and I were ushers) but God blessed us with a lot of visitors and "returnees" for all services. Cathy


Again thanks to everyone that worked so hard throughout the whole Lenten season.
Muffin Sunday COMING THIS SUNDAY April 8th
Muffin Sunday will provide funds for VBS. VBS expenses have increased again. To avoid charging a registration fee for the students, we will raise funds through donations. This was well received last year and we decided to carry it forward this year.
Muffin Sunday will continue until VBS begins, and take place on every second and fourth Sunday.
Muffins/ donuts/ coffee cake will be provided and there will be a basket for your voluntary contributions.
If you can help out providing "muffins" that would be helpful too!
Thank you all for your generous support in the past and looking forward to this coming year.
Nancy Dunlap
APRIL 10 - 12:00 pm
Happy Wednesday everyone!!

Our next luncheon will be on Tuesday next week, April 10th, at noon at Mulligan's. If you will be attending, please either email me or let me know in church this Sunday.

I hope all of you have a great remaining week and we'll see one another on Sunday.

God's blessings to you all.


Food Pantry - Paper Bags Needed
There is always a need for paper bags at the Beach Food Pantry. Please leave any bags in the foyer and of course any can food items you would like to donate. Volunteers also always needed. If you have any questions, please ask. Thanks for all your help.

Ann Helwig
Volunteers ARE Needed 
Oh my, I've volunteered, now what am I expected to do!!!
Sunday School Teacher
1.     Do I need experience before I volunteer or are you going to ACTUALLY show me what to do?
Prior teaching experience is helpful, but not necessary. Some of our veteran teachers have had no prior professional experience and have found sharing the Word of God with the children a blessing. A step-by-step teacher guide provides detailed information for each lesson so that new teachers will have the guidance they may need. 
2.     How often will I need to step up and serve?
Approximately once every 5/6 weeks. We have a flexible schedule and will work around travel and personal commitments.

3.     Who do I get the instructions from or who is basically in charge (who do you call?)
Either Leah Paulson, who is in charge of teaching materials, or Nancy Dunlap can answer questions or provide teaching support.

4.     What is the minimum expected of me? 
Using the teacher guide and materials provided, prepare the lesson (about 45 minutes) assigned for the week

5.     Are the supplies that are required supplied by the church or do I have to get them before hand? Teaching materials are organized into folders for each week, and are located in the plastic box in the Sunday School area.

6.     Do I get a helper? Yes, we do have helpers available for teachers who would like assistance.

7.   Are any meetings required and if so, when and how often? No, usually handled by phone or email.
If anyone has any further questions just ask me, I will be happy to help. Let me know you're if interested in helping.
Nancy Dunlap or Leah Paulson

Upcoming Silent Prayer - Sunday April 8 “Worrying” 
  1. Lord, we worry about our families, relationships, and so many things beyond our control.
  2. Lord, help us turn to You more and more as we begin to worry.
  3. Build our trust in you more and more each day.
