Many thanks to Jeff Sandquist who put together an amazing program of Songs of War and Peace that not only witnessed to faith in God but our continuous efforts to work for peace.  Images and words that spoke of children in war torn countries, though taken from WWII history, touched the heart as if taken this week.

Our last day of children’s Sunday school is Sunday, May 17 and we are thinking of some kind of picnic, possibly fishing.  Please let Mary Kwantes or Bob May know if you can help.

We welcomed Kristen Eye last Sunday into full membership.  We appreciate her continuous commitment to choir this year.  Welcome and Thank you Kristen.
