A Full May of Activity!

We have a lot going on in the life of the church in the next 30 days, and I don’t want you to miss any of it. So let me list some of the highlights:

• We are nearing the end of the early service season with three Sundays to go. Thanks to everyone who has helped make the early service meaningful. I especially want to thank the worship team: Jack Harman, Ken Davis, Ed Snider, Betsy Cowan, Amber Manzella, Melissa Smith, Ben Kiefer, and Alex Snider for their dedication and commitment to leading early worship. The team will be participating regularly in the one service during the summer.

• On May 21st, at both services, we will be recognizing our two graduating High School Seniors. This day will also be the last day for the choir at the 11 a.m. service until the fall. Special guest musicians will be sharing their gifts in worship during the summertime.

• For the third year in a row, we will be hosting the 208th Army Band on Saturday, May 27th at 7 p.m. in the church sanctuary. They will present an evening of patriotic and inspirational music in a variety of musical styles. Please invite your friends and neighbors.

• On Sunday, May 28th, following the 11 a.m. service, we will have our annual Memorial Day Lunch hosted by Dave and Pat Ulmer. This is our opportunity to say thanks to those in our congregation who served our country in the Armed Services.

• The following week on Saturday, June 3rd, from 5-7 p.m., we are hosting a “Family Fun Day” with music, food trucks, and a bounce house. This event on our front lawn is designed to share the story of First Presbyterian Church with our community. Bring a friend and a lawn chair!

• Sunday, June 4th will be our last fellowship Sunday before the change to the summer schedule. Many thanks go out to Liz and Byron Oswald and the whole Fellowship Ministry Team for doing such a wonderful job this year with all our fellowship events.

• On Sunday, June 11th, we will begin our summer schedule. Sunday School will be held at 9 a.m., and there will be one worship service at 10 a.m. in the sanctuary. Throughout the summer there will be different musical guests, and the worship team will be participating on some Sundays.

As we near the summer vacation season, let me remind you not to neglect your soul’s need to worship. If you are traveling, I encourage you to find a place of worship wherever that may be. I would love for you to bring me a bulletin from whatever church you attend, so that I can see what other churches are doing. If you are in town, remember that we need you in worship; for together we are stronger and more full of praise.

Grace and peace to each of you!
Your friend and pastor,
Pastor Lee
