Happy Friday, but brrrr! I can’t believe how chilly it is – and it’s almost May! Might need a second cup of hot coffee this morning! Well, in spite of the fact that it’s a bit of a dreary morning, it’s still Friday – and that’s a good thing – the weekend’s on the way!
Here’s what’s happening this weekend at church:
On Sunday, I’ll start a new sermon series entitled “Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things.” This week we’ll look at Moses and some of the extraordinary things God enabled this ordinary man to do, and also what God might be calling us ordinary people to do. Since it’s the first Sunday of the month, we’ll be sharing Holy Communion together as well.
I need to let you know that, very soon, the Town of Elkton will be replacing the sidewalk in front of the church (actually the whole sidewalk from the Presbyterian Church down to Locust Lane). I’m not sure exactly when it will start – the letter we received said May 1st, but I suppose it depends on the weather. At any rate, the sidewalk will be torn up for quite some time, which means that those of you who are used to parking out front will have to park in the back for a while. The good news is that when the project’s done, we’ll have a nice, smooth, safe sidewalk in front of our church!
Finally, let me remind you that on Sunday, May 22nd, the Stewardship Committee is sponsoring a Book Swap in Weldin Hall. So start going through your books and deciding what you’d like to donate, but leave space on your shelves, so that you can pick up some new ones at the swap. You can bring the books you’re donating to Weldin Hall on Sunday, the 15th or anytime during the week after that. The Swap will run all morning on the 22nd, and then the leftover books will be donated to local and veterans’ organizations.
I think that’s it for now. Time to go make that second cup of coffee! Have a good Friday, and an even greater weekend! Maybe you can find some time to curl up under a warm blanket and watch a movie or a game! Spend time with those you love, and then I’ll see you in worship on Sunday morning!
Grace and Peace,
