Women’s Study Group
The Women’s Study Group will begin a new book on Thursday, May 4th. The title is The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics by Daniel James Brown. This is a true story of nine students from the University of Washington, struggle against heavy odds to represent the USA rowing team and compete in Hitler’s Olympic Games. The book is available at your favorite book seller or your library. We are looking forward to having new people join the group with this book. The Women’s Study Group meets the first and third Thursday of each month from 2 to 4 PM at the church. If you have any questions, please contact Barb Cutter.
Outreach Planning Team
The Lenten Lambs project was a terrific success. We provided essential care and clothing items for 18 residents of the Hurst Plaza Nursing and Rehab Center. Thank you to all who contributed time, treasure and talent.
Next up is a dinner for families at the Fort Worth Ronald McDonald House on June 3. The April 29 team planning meeting will decide the menu. Sign up to contribute meal items or to help cook and serve. Look for the sign-up sheet on the back-hall bulletin board.
Historically, a “Sexton” is the person employed to act as a caretaker of a church, its contents and its graveyard! Fortunately we are not currently burying people in the Village Plaza Shopping Center so our volunteer sexton teams just mop, dust, straighten chairs, tidy the kitchen and clean the bathrooms. Teams have responsibilities just one day a month. Check with Eloise Fry if you’d like to volunteer.
Easter Services Continue
The liturgical season of Easter continues until the Day of Pentecost on June 4th. Each Sunday at 10 AM we celebrate the Holy Eucharist with Old and New Testament Bible readings, Prayers of the People, a thoughtful and educational sermon and, of course hymns and anthems. Interpretation for the deaf if available each week. We look forward to seeing you.
