Come Sunday as we gather at our Lord’s Table. Pastor will be speaking from Matthew 7:21-29.
This week will be our last Sunday Breakfast for the season. Renovations will begin in the kitchen next Saturday right after the Doug Jablonski Men’s Fellowship meeting.
Orphaned kitchen items will be on display on a table in Madden Hall. If you find something that belongs to you, please take it home! Anything left over will be donated to Good Will.
Graduate Sunday is June 15. Be sure to get your graduate’s information to Gayle Ackerman!
Christian Education Committee is looking for parents’ input regarding our youth programs. Please fill in the survey if you’ve not already done so and return to Priscilla.

Paid in Full – Read Romans 5:12-21
WHILE I was sitting in church during Holy Communion, I could still read the word written in ink on the back of my hand. "Paid" had been stamped on my hand after I had paid to be a spectator at a karate tournament the day before. Other people were receiving Communion as I stared at the word: Paid. I realized that the penalty for my sins had been paid, not with money but with Jesus' loving sacrificial death. Tears welled up in my eyes as the immensity of God's love washed over me.
I don't try to hold back my tears as I once did; I know that tears are one of the ways God is revealed to me. Most of the time, I cry when I realize how much God truly loves me and forgives me no matter how often I disappoint God. God has paid in full for me and for each one of us. How can we repay God for so great a gift? By living for our savior, Christ Jesus.
