Welcome!  We extend a warm welcome to our guests, and invite you to sign the guest book at the back of the sanctuary.  Everyone is invited to remain for a cup of coffee in the Church Hall following the service.

This Week in First Church:

Coming up:

– Sunday, 5 June – Pentecost, and Communion Sunday

– Sunday, 5 June – Wednesday, 8 June – John is “at” General Assembly

– Sunday, 12 June – Outdoor Service and Barbecue

Something Red – Next Sunday, 5 June, will be Pentecost, the festival of the giving of the Holy Spirit to the community of Jesus’ disciples and followers, as told in Acts 2.1-41.  Since the symbolic color for Pentecost is red, those who wish to are encouraged to wear something red for our service that day, as a way of recognizing the occasion!

Communion – Next Sunday’s service will be a Communion service.  The elements will once again be served in a “physically-distanced” way.  That is, everyone will come to the front to pick up the bread and juice, either singly or in family groups.  More detailed directions will be provided next Sunday.

Newsletter – The May issue of the Newsletter has been sent out to everyone on our e-mail list, and hard copies will be mailed to everyone else at the beginning of the week.  Many thanks to everyone who contributed items for this issue, as well as to Lisa Sneesby for putting the Newsletter together, and Mardine Garnham for printing and mailing the hard copies!

In Two Weeks – We will again hold an Outdoor Service and Barbecue, following a two-year hiatus, at Bruce and Lisa Sneesby’s farm.  The date is Sunday, 12 June, with the service beginning at 10:30, as usual, and the barbecue following.  The address is 78115 Highway 50, just north of Highway 16, on the right side of the road.  Food and drinks will be provided.  Make sure to bring your own lawnchair(s)!
