This week we are asked to pray for Chuck Dean, Dave and Lisa DeSalvo, Denise Doezema, Scott Emory, Paulino Estrada and Georgi Lakey and Marcus. Suggestions for prayers would be for their spiritual growth, opportunities to see Christ in their everyday life, and anything else that God puts on your mind for them.
Our sermon next Sunday will be “The Burnt Offering” based on Leviticus 1. Everyone is encouraged to prepare their heart for the message. The monthly sermon topics with scripture are listed each month in the Heartbeat.
This Wednesday our members are asked to spend just one hour in prayer between midnight of May 31 to midnight of June 1. You may pray at home at an assigned time or pray any time during that 24 hours. Suggested prayer topics are in the bulletin.
The June issue of the Heartbeat will be available June 5. Therefore, all articles and calendar information needs to be to the church office this week.

If you would like to bring cookies for the team, please have them to the church office on Friday, June 10th or to one of the members coming over on Sunday.
Fencing tools needed! The mission team will be helping to repair fences and they are in need of small tools specifically for fencing. If you have some to LOAN the team, please bring them to the church prior to June 11th. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR NAME IS ON YOUR TOOLS SO WE CAN GET THEM BACK TO YOU.
