Michael’s Missives for May 14, 2019

First Pres Community –

Walk like a duck.  On ice, on mud, in construction zones…small, conscious, cautions steps work best.  Don’t be in a hurry.  As church family, our concern is everyone’s safety.

Enter with care.  The front door will be accessible on Sundays as it was last Sunday.  During the week, you may need to enter through the kitchen door…this will entail 2 steps.  The kitchen door is immediately to the east of the front door.  This will be the case for the Keenager event, so be forewarned!

TOMORROW (Thursday), Keenagers invites everyone to join them for a performance by the Choir from Pleasant Lea Middle School directed by Courtney Williams in our Main Sanctuary at 11am (note correct time).  It is free and all are invited!  This Keenagers event will continue with lunch afterwards in our Fellowship Hall ($5).  There will be plenty of food if you want to stay for the meal and have not signed up.

NEXT WEEK, I will be on vacation. May 18-25.  I will be back preaching on Memorial Day Sunday.  While I am gone, contact Stephen Leaders Sharon Pyburn or John Fields if you need pastoral assistance.  There will be no missive next week.

THIS SUNDAY MORNING, Commissioned Ruling Elder Ann Ditty will be preaching at both the 9am and 11am Worship Services.  At both services we will be acknowledging our high school graduates along with all others getting their degrees.  During the 10am Faith and Fellowship Time, classes for all ages are held.  For the children and youth, this will conclude the Sunday School year (adult classes vary.)  Nursery care is provided all morning and all summer.

Some forecasts say storms this weekend so be careful.  If church is cancelled for any reason, KMBC will be notified.

THIS SUNDAY AFTERNOON, the Men’s Group is having a golf outing at Unity Village at 3pm.  $30 covers 9 holes, a cart, and food afterwards.  All men are invited.  Contact Dennis Haines if interested (or if there are weather questions).

TONIGHT – Bells have potluck & practice at 6:30pm.  Last Choir rehearsal at 7:30pm.

Grace and peace to you and yours –

Your pastor and friend  Michael
