By your mercy keep them always

Vacation Bible School: Our theme this year is Circle J Ranch. If anyone has a ranch-related idea that we could incorporate, please let Pastor know. Children from three years old to those entering sixth grade are welcome. Time will be from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. The exact dates aren't yet set. I'm suggesting we try something slightly different this year, namely, that we have it from Tuesday to Friday night starting the day after Memorial Day (June 1-4). If you're involved in VBS either as parents, teachers, or helpers, and have an opinion on the schedule, please let Pastor Bitter know this week. Thank you.
Graduate Sunday: Our high school seniors this year are Ryan Flaten, Kelsey Jepma, and Cory Schroeder. We give thanks to our Savior for bringing them to this point in life and will be recognizing this milestone in our service next week, May 16.
