Carol’s Corner: Look what God is doing…
I am so excited with how (you) the congregation are sharing your enthusiasm of the summertime opportunities. One of which is the overwhelming desire to continue with prayer and Bible study on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer. Your requests have been heard and we will continue to listen. There will be light summertime meals served at a reduced cost. We will meet June 4, 2014 with a meal of BLT sandwiches, raw veggies and dessert. Cost $3.00.
A second request mentioned has been a set visitation for home-bound members. Therefore, on June 4th at 10 am those who would like to make a visit with another church member to a home-bound person. June 4th Imperial Plaza is the stop for a visitation team. If there are more people who would like to visit another stop will be added.
A third request made was for a pictorial directory. I agree one is needed, but I believe this should be held off until a Senior Pastor is in place. A pictorial directory would be a great way to welcome the new Pastor. So yes, we can make one but that will be in time.
A fourth request made was for greater communication. Therefore one of our young adults, (Melissa Swann) is using her gifts and talents as she does the face book page and website. Another member, (Paula Chandler) has stepped forward and is willing to do the monthly newsletter. When there are needs for bulletin inserts, a member, (Jenet Stevenson) is willing to design them, print, and stuff the bulletins.
A fifth dream brought to light was doing Backyard Bible Club in the Penick Road neighborhood this summer. The Seekers Sunday School Class will be doing this project following Vacation Bible School.
Look where God is working and join Him in His work. Bethlehem, may we be found faithful in growing God’s Kingdom here on earth.
A covered dish dinner will begin at 5:45 pm. Followed by a Called Business Meeting.
This is to advise you of a Called Business Meeting on June 11, 2014 at 6:30 pm for the purpose of suggested changes to the Constitution and By-Laws.

An Indoor Picnic to help raise funds for the Building and Grounds who are making their list of things that the church needs to fix for the remainder of 2014 will be June 29th following the morning worship service. One item being considered is the need for new equipment for heating and cooling. This is a big ticket item. Therefore, in thinking ahead let us be faithful in preparing for our future needs. Donations for the indoor picnic will be collected rather than a charge for the meal. Let us set a goal of $500.00 for this event.
**39 and Holding meet June 3rd at 10:30 am with Dick Glover as the speaker.**
