Happy Mother’s Day! As a token of our appreciation for all you do, the first 100 moms will receive a special gift this Sunday.

Choir Chimes will be leading our Call to Worship, and Pastor will be speaking from John 5:1-18.

Our Blankets+ Offering will be received this Sunday.  Your donations will be used to help mothers in need around the world.  Please use the envelopes in your May Good News or one provided in the pew racks.

Sunday is the last day for Olan Mills portrait sign-ups!  We are hoping for 100% participation and are counting on you to help us reach that goal.  (Those who don’t sign up now will be receiving a phone call in the next few weeks.)  There is no purchase necessary, and each family/household who chooses a pose for the new directory will receive a complimentary 8x10 photo and a free directory.  Call Kris at 748-1214.

Invitations to the Deacons’ Bereavement Luncheon on May 16 were mailed earlier this week.  Please RSVP by May 13.

Qualities Needed In All Moms

A panel of experts was asked to complete some sentences about their moms.

What made them experts was the one thing they all had in common. They were all kindergarteners. Even though these are the words of 6 year olds I think the qualities they recognized in their moms are the qualities needed in all moms. Here are the sentences and the answers:

My mom is best at: "feeding the dog," "making my bed," "driving,"

"cleaning," "running," "riding a two-wheeler," "watering the garden."

If I had enough money, I'd buy her: "flowers," "a car," "a necklace," "a brand-new fan," "a kitten," "a diamond ring," "a big pack of bubble gum."

It makes me feel good inside when Mom says: "I love you," "good job,"

"dinnertime!" "You look handsome," "I'll buy you something."

My mom is as pretty as a -- "butterfly," "ballerina," "mouse," "princess,"

"my brothers," "goose," "gold ring," "a clean horse."

(And my very own personal favorite which is still hanging in my kitchen: “I love my mom because she takes me to McDonalds” ~ Gay)
