This coming Sunday, April 2nd, will be our first Kids’ Worship! Before the sermon, kids Grade 5 and down will be dismissed to the cradle roll room where they will participate in Kids Worship. After that, kids will be dismissed from Kids’ Worship directly to their classes. Kids grades 1&under will need to be escorted to Kids Worship by a parent and signed in there as opposed to signing them in for class. Kids’ Worship will be the first Sunday of every month.

AV Team - Want to join our AV Team. We will be doing a training session after Bible study on Wednesday April 5 at 8 pm sharp. Contact Margaret or Noel if you are interested.
Good News - Jodie Cook shared an encouraging update regarding her mom Linda. After initially suspecting Linda suffered a stroke last week they have found no evidence of a stroke on MRI, no sign of a seizure on a CT scan. Linda is suffering from pneumonia and as a case of related Bell's palsy . She is being treated with an antibiotic and is starting to improve. Please continue to pray for Linda and Terry Codling and the rest of the family. Thank God for answered prayer!
Celebration of Spring Potluck - We are looking forward to celebrating Easter on Sunday April 16 (the Sunday after Easter) following morning worship. More information will follow.
A Challenge for our Poets - In our prayer circle on Wednesday mornings, we have enjoyed learning the stories behind some the wonderful hymns we sing, all of which likely began as poems. It occurred to us that we have a church family of wonderfully talented people of ALL ages, and we want to challenge the poets among you!
So, with Easter coming up soon, we invite you to write a poem (or two!) about what God’s gift of love and salvation means to you. It would be so lovely to have these poems to read during our Easter morning service.
Please let Phyllis or Dianne know if you have any questions. You are welcome to submit your poems in hard copy or electronically if you prefer. You can send them to Phyllis’s email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let the creative juices flow!
Check Your Shoes - With wet "spring" weather continuing, the parking lot is muddy! Please drop passengers off under the car park if you can and make sure to wipe off your shoes when you enter the building. Thank-you.
