Summer is upon us!  Time to slow down a bit and reconnect with our families and our church family!   As your schedule shifts, remember that your church is still here.  Make involvement in the life of our church a priority this summer.  NOTE:  Beginning June 3, we will begin our Summer Worship Schedule:  Saturdays at 7:00 p.m.; Sundays one service at 10:00 a.m. (Sunday School will begin at 8:45 a.m.  Coffee fellowship begins at 8:30 a.m.)  We will return to our usual Sunday schedule the first Sunday of September.
This Sunday, Pentecost Sunday at our 11:00 a.m. worship service, six of our youth will be Confirmed in their faith and become professing members of our church: Christopher Alsobrook, Wyatt Clark, Jadyn Gillingham, Wyatt Gillingham, Samantha Popp, and Madilyn Wisdom. Five of the six have already been baptized, but one, Madilyn, will also be baptized on Sunday. They have completed a 13 week course with Pastor John and Terri Gill. Come and help us celebrate with our Confirmands!  There will be a church lunch in their honor following the service – join us!
This Sunday, May 20, following our 11:00 service, the entire congregation is invited to a lunch in honor of our Confirmands.  It will also be the kick off for our Summer, and so will include picnic type foods, such as hamburgers and sides that go with a cookout.  Plan to join us about noon this Sunday!
Only two more Wednesday night dinners left this season!  Our final dinner this spring will be on May 23rd.  Dinners will resume in September 12th.  We thank Erika Watson and her wonderful kitchen crew for such fabulous dinners!
Our church leaders voted some time ago that we should fix up the Taylor house that we have been purchasing so that it could be rented and begin drawing income to the church.  This project has been spearheaded by Skip Watson and Bill Haas (and their posse of guys) who have put in countless hours already.  Bill and Skip have worked virtually every day for weeks repairing and painting, etc.  We thank both of them for all they have done.  It is a huge job!  They could use your help so that we can complete this project.  If you have time to spare and/or skills to offer, call, email, or speak to Skip Watson (skiperika@yahoo.com or 321-604-5501).  The quicker we complete the upgrades, the quicker we can get a renter into the house!  Thanks for your much needed help!

Job Vacancies – The Hunters Are Becoming Snow Birds!
With Mike and Maryann Hunter purchasing a summer home in Tennessee, they will have to give up their positions at our church (they will still be here six months in the winters).  Keith Meck has agreed to be our Usher/Greeter Coordinator for the Traditional Service (and for the combined summer services).  We would like to also have an Usher/Greeter Coordinators for Saturday evening worship and the 8:30 service on Sundays.  If you would be willing to do this, let Pastor John know.  Maryanne has served as our Worship Committee Convener and has prepared Sunday morning communion on the first Sundays of the month (Robin Champaign takes care of Saturday evening).  If you would be interested in being the Worship/Communion Coordinator for Sunday mornings, let Pastor John know.  In addition to these roles, Mike has served as Lay Leader of our congregation.  Soon the Nominations Committee will be meeting to name a new Lay Leader.  Mike also has served as the Charter Organization Representative to the Troop 360 Scout Leadership Council.  Pastor John will fill that position going forward.  We will miss Mike and Maryanne, but are pleased that they will be still with us part of the year!

Revelation Bible Study Continues
Join us for our study of the Book of Revelation!  We have more than 25 folks who meet on Mondays (10:00 a.m. and/or 6:30 p.m.).  We will take Memorial Day, May 28th, off.  This next Monday we will consider the fourth and fifth chapters of Revelation.
