Children’s Ministry: Praise God, the roster for the Spring Quarter teachers is full! See Angel Lee if you would like to find out more about serving in this ministry over the summer.

Bulletin Updates: It takes many hands to put together each worship service, including someone to update the weekly worship bulletin.

If you’d like to learn how to serve in this way, please see anyone from the EMC (listed on the back of this bulletin).

Please take a copy to stay up to date with the work God is doing around the world through our church.

Benevolence Fund: Our financial assistance fund for church members has been used and now needs to be replenished. If you are led to contribute, please write “Benevolence Fund” in the memo of your check. Praise God for the gracious ways He meets our needs!
