Boxes will also be placed in church at all services that weekend for anyone wishing to give her a note of thanks.

EXCITING NEWS!BIBLE STUDIES
BIBLE CLASS ON CHRISTIAN SYMBOLS
God’s Word uses many symbols and for good reason. Have you ever wondered why or what a particular symbol means? Join us in May as we look at a number of these Biblical symbols. The individual symbols that we will study are the following: May 17 – Wind & Spirit; and May 24 – Yeast. Understanding the meaning and purpose of these symbols will aid us in our Bible reading and Bible knowledge. These classes will be held in the Commons, with a starting time of 9:15 am
Last summer man volunteers helped to install beautiful landscaping around our new school and church grounds. The landscaping committee from SPL is now looking for summertime volunteers to help manage the new plantings and grass. Youngsters or oldsters can volunteer a little or a lot...whatever fits your summertime schedule. Sign up in back of church, or cal Tom Buchholz or Sue Radtke to help out.
Some duties are filled already but we especially need volunteers for:
- trimming grass - using our self-propelled lawn push mower or weed whacker
- shrub maintenance-spring and fall
- occasional shrub watering - during dry weather
- weed pulling, watering prayer garden & shed area
Thanks for your help! Tom Buchholz 920-915-7088 - Sue Radtke 920-407-1935
