The Christian Education Ministry Team is
asking church members to please donate
school supplies again this year for the AHGS.
A list of supplies needed is posted on the
bulletin board and a box with a big yellow
school bus is under the table to place the
supplies. When the box is full it will be taken to
the school and then filled again.
A big thank you to everyone who
supports this important project.

A Bible Reading Program for All Believers
By reading the Psalms, we work on our relationship with God! By reading the Proverbs, we work on our relationship with each other!
On each day of the month, read the corresponding chapter in the book of Proverbs (e.g. today is the 20 of March, and so you would read the 20th chapter of Proverbs). By doing so, in a normal month, you would read through the entire book of Proverbs each month.
On each day of the month, read the corresponding chapter in the book of Psalms, and each 30th chapter as well (e.g. today is March 20, and so you would read the 26th Psalm, and also Psalm 50, 80, 110, 140 –tomorrow- Psalm 21, 51, 81, 111,141) By doing so, you will read the entire book of Psalms each month
PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
"Shawls . . . made for centuries universal and embracing, symbolic of an unconditionally loving God. They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify."
Requests for a prayer shawl may be made
through any member of the congregation or
through the church office. Each shawl is lifted
in prayer during a worship service before they
are taken to those for whom we are praying
CHURCH WORK DAYS
There are always tasks which are in need of doing around the church house, and individuals and groups are encouraged to help perform said tasks. For more information, contact one of the Trustees. ( Stan Harris, Eugene Simpson, Norm Willoughby, Roy Elmore, Scott Harris, Ellen Lynch)
