Haiti Project—May Focus
The focus agency for May is the Haiti Project. The Haiti Project helps to bring hope into the lives of the people, by giving them a chance at a better life. Please keep the people of Jeanette Haiti in your prayers.
ANGEL GARDEN CARETAKERS
Once again, we are asking for individuals and families to sign up for Weeding, Watering, Trimming and Fertilizing as needed and on a regular basis, for keeping the Church Gardens looking neat. There are a total of 10 areas that need attending to. Garden Angels – Please see the signup sheet with the map on the bulletin boards in the Narthex
Spring Cleanup will be on May 7th after services. Please dress in comfortable clothes. Signup sheet is posted on the front door.
DIFFERENT LANGUAGE READERS NEEDED
Pentecost will be on June 4th. Once again, STOC will be utilizing those who can read in a foreign language for the Gospel Reading. Because this falls during the summer schedule this year, it also gives those from Rite I an opportunity to share their skills and participate. Please sign up in the Narthex if you are willing to read. We will schedule a brief rehearsal to coordinate our efforts closer to Pentecost.
ALTAR GUILD THANK YOU
A special thank you to the people that signed up to help Altar Guild members with the preparation for Holy Week, Easter Vigil/Easter Sunday. The extra pair of hands each day made the “load lighter”; they are Tammy Wyman/Palm Sunday, Bridget Done/Holy Thursday, Angie Bier, daughter Evelyn and friend/Good Friday and Jesse Hein/Holy Saturday! And last but not the least, our dedicated Altar Guild members that were available to help. Gratefully, Noelle Gehlhaart – Head of Altar Guild
