Graduation:  Although June 4th is weeks away, that last day of school -- and our 8th grade graduation -- will be here quickly.  Traditionally, hosting the reception and creating the parting gifts has been the 7th grade class gift to the graduating 8th graders.  Due to circumstances, this year's reception will be a walk-through, similar to what was done for last year's class.  Although it was different from previous years, the evening was really special, and the gifts the class provided were truly appreciated by the graduates and their families.  This year, I know that we also will want to make graduation as special as we can for this year's class. 

Thank you to Tracey Tradewell who has volunteered to lead as the event coordinator and is looking for others form a core committee.  Within the next few weeks, be looking for information via email.   If we all work together, we can organize and be a part of a truly memorable evening for this year's graduates and their families.  Amazingly, next year, our kids and families will be on the receiving end.

Blessed Easter! The weeks after Easter Sunday make up the season of Easter in the church. We will hear about how Jesus appeared to His disciples and the instructions He gave to them before His ascension into heaven. I pray that you will continue to focus on what Jesus is saying to you in this season, and will continue to follow in His footsteps. We will continue our study of the Lord's Prayer. Our focus is on the 4th (Give us this day our daily bread), 5th (Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us), 6th (And lead us not into temptation) petitions

Memory Quiz #26 - DUE April 22th (YURK) or 23th (KELL) 

2nd Petition of the Lord's Prayer - Thy kingdom come. What does this mean? The kingdom of God certainly comes by itself without our prayer, but we pray in this petition that it may come to us also.

 

Journal Entry #13 - DUE April 22th (YURK) or 23th (KELL) 

God has commanded us to pray and promises to hear us when we pray. The word AMEN means YES! It shall be so. What does knowing this mean for us when we pray? When can praying be something difficult for you to do? What happens when we don't seem to get an answer to our prayers? What is God telling us? How can we find comfort in this?
