1) Youth & Compassion Sunday! This year, Youth Sunday and Compassion Sunday fall on the same week, and so we will enjoy the ministry gifts of our own middle and high school students during both services, and have a word or two from Peggy about joining with Compassion International to assist needy children around the world. This will be a fun and energetic and deeply meaningful worship.
2) Barb tells me there are 75 signed up for Saturday's Mother-Daughter Brunch! This is an amazing number for our parish, and I know the moms and daughters are looking forward to a super fun morning together!
3) Mark your calendars for May 13th, our Parish Work Day 9AM-noon. Everyone can help with something, and our building folks have plenty of tasks. This is always a great chance to spruce things up and, just as importantly, share some time working with others who love this parish.
