Prayer Mission for April 

Volunteers from numerous Churches, Youth Groups, and other Civic Organizations help serve lunch, from 11:30am-1pm, with a coffee hour at 10:30am at this locally-based soup kitchen.  Every day of the last full working week of each month, a hot lunch is served to members of the community at no cost.  Take-outs are available as well. 

Karing Kitchen, however, is not just a lunch.  At Karing Kitchen we offer an environment where anyone can come as they are and feel comfortable, have someone to talk to, a shoulder to cry on, and someone who cares for them.  Karing Kitchen is about "providing a nutritious hot meal, ensuring food security and advocating for a person's rights and responsibilities."

Rev. Wattles' Easter Message . . .

Easter April 5, 2015
John 20:1-18

Three Witnesses

    Even non-believers who have never attended a church know that Christians have this wacky notion that Jesus was killed and then returned to life.  But let’s admit, sometimes we feel confident and other times not so sure, that when we hear others talk about resurrection we sometimes think,   “Well, I don’t believe that.”  It’s a little like being in love with someone.  One day you experience a rush of strong emotion and then on another day you’re not so sure.  A woman marries and finds herself thrilled when her husband unexpectedly brings home flowers.   But ten weeks later she is not so amused when he forgets their third anniversary.  As in a marriage our thoughts and feelings about Jesus may swing between the extremes of complete trust and deep doubt.

    So today, as you hear the Easter story again for the thirtieth or fortieth time, you may be filled with bliss,  OR …  continued

 Prayer Works ! 

  PRAYER CHAIN UPDATE - We are revising the Prayer Chain.  Those who are on the Prayer Chain will remain unless you let the Office know otherwise.  Those  who would like to help with the Prayer Chain are welcome to join.  If you are interested in being a part of the chain, you may call the Office (363-7590) and let Linda know.  

If you are not aware that we have a Prayer Chain - the chain is activated whenever one may have a need for prayer when family or friends are having surgery, those who are terminal,  to notify us of a death or accident -- or whenever the need for prayers occurs.

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was
meant to be.
With God as our Father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.
