It’s a great time of the year, school is out, the youth are off to camp in Panama City and VBS is right on us. There’s an excitement in the air and an anticipation of some R & R with the kids asking, “Are we there yet?” As we take time out to regroup and refresh, let us not leave Christ at home. Wherever you go this summer take Christ with you and let others see Him in you and your family.
May has been a busy month as we recognized our Mothers on Mother’s Day, then we recognized our graduating seniors, and I hope you took notice as to how many of them graduated with honors! Then we had baby dedication with parents presenting their precious little ones to Christ.
We look forward to Father’s Day and the Fourth of July celebration in our community. Again in all our activities keep Christ in the center and have a great summer.
The children of Israel were in bondage to Egypt for 400+ years. We are sure that in that time they prayed to God for deliverance, and in God’s time table He heard their prayers and did deliver them. Today we have a similar situation. We wonder about the evil people in this world that keep on with their evil talk and actions. We wonder why God would put up with it. These evil people kill, persecute, deny God, and all things that are contrary to God and nothing or no one stops them. But, as with the children of Israel, in His time, one day soon, He will say, “That’s all,” and He will send Jesus to come get His children. It is sad to realize what will now happen to these people. God will do what He will, so, even in this wicked time, keep our eyes on Jesus. Keep the faith, and as God’s word says, “Lift up your heads, your redemption draweth nigh.” Thank God for His word. God Bless us all!

A boy came in to Sunday School late. Knowing he was usually very prompt, his teacher asked, “Johnny, is there anything wrong?”
“No, ma’am, not really,” he said. “I was going to go fishing, but my daddy told me that I needed to get on up and go to church.”
The teacher was very impressed and asked Johnny if his father had explained to him why it was more important to go to church than to go fishing.
“Yes ma’am, he did,” Johnny said. “My daddy said he didn’t have enough bait for both of us.”
Summer is here! Have fun, be safe and don’t forget to come to Sunday School!

Young at Heart Ministry
Driving through the beautiful Arkansas and Missouri Ozarks this week, I was reminded that God is the Master Artist in life. Even after all the flooding and storms, the trees were greener and the flowers were more vibrant in their color than before. The crops were growing at a fast rate and the soil looked rich and healthy. Looking across a valley, the varied colors of the fog, the hills, streams and forests were breathtaking. Only God could paint this picture to be so beautiful! As in His beautiful artwork of nature, so are we perfectly painted and created. Each of us are vibrant in our own way - we are all unique and beautiful because we were created by the Master. I encourage you to observe God's beauty and see the wonder of his artwork this week.
Young at Heart luncheon- Tuesday, June 4, at Noon. *** We will have a picnic theme this month, so BRING FOODS THAT WOULD BE BROUGHT TO A PICNIC. It should be a lot of fun!!!!! There will be no speaker, so we will have fun, music and fellowship!
May project (Food Pantry Ministry): Bring items such as toilet paper (small rolls), paper towels, dish washing soap, tooth paste, toothbrushes, mouth wash, tinfoil, paper plates, sandwich bags, cleaning products, hygiene items, Lysol wipes... items which can be included in our Food Baskets, These items will help the family with other needs besides food. * Box in foyer of Fellowship Hall. PLEASE BRING ITEMS BY June 2.
Finally, a few of you have asked about another outing. We can plan another Meet and Eat for July or we can find someplace to visit for a field trip. If you have any suggestions, please let Bro. Danny, Maureen or myself know.
Have a blessed week! Love you!
