Sunday, May 19: EMHS Touring Choir-“The Love of God”, Fellowship Meal, and MYF Auction.   (Click to view bulletin)

Everyone is invited to the fellowship hall for lunch!  Please allow choir members and their families to go first in the line.

Plan to bring a generous main dish and either a side dish or dessert to share with others. Also, a reminder to the elderly folks in attendance that you do not need to bring any food to fellowship meals. We love to have you there and know that cooking can be a challenge at this stage of life!

The MYF Auction will follow after the fellowship meal! Everyone is invited to attend and support the 8 youth and 4 sponsors traveling to Kansas City this summer for convention. If you have donations, please drop them off in the fellowship hall before worship on Sunday.
