MEMORIAL DAY PRAYER

Dear God, We thank you for the freedom you have given to us, and for the price that was paid by Christ so that we could live free. We remember today. The cost of it all. The great sacrifice for freedom.

We thank you for the brave men and women who have fought, and continue to fight, so courageously for our nation. We ask for your covering and blessing over them and their families. We pray that you would be gracious and encircle them with your peace. We pray for your great favor and goodness to be evident in their lives.

Please be with all those who wear the uniform, who serve our communities and nation every single day. We ask that you provide your protection, that you would be their guiding force who leads the way, and their rear guard who keeps them safe from behind. We ask that you would draw them to yourself amidst the dangers they face in a dark world, for you are the Truth, you are the Way, you are the Light.
(by Debbie McDaniel)

Mission Projects
 
MISSION PROJECTS

Missions would like to thank everyone who contributed to the Lenten projects by attending the chili cook-off, the pancake breakfast, or supplying a gift for the CASA and Heifer projects. A huge thanks to the Sunday School kids who did extra chores to raise money for the projects and to Kathy and Paul Jones for their jars of change. CASA was thrilled to receive the check and gifts we supplied. We did so well that we were able to purchase a goat, a flock of chickens, and bees and supply clean water to The Heifer Project. Everyone's hard work is greatly appreciated.

May is National Mental Awareness Month so the communion offering for May is for NAMI, The National Alliance on Mental Illness. NAMI is the leading grassroots mental health organization for building better lives for millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

Your support helps people with mental illness experience hope, recovery, wellness, and freedom from stigma.

In May, the Sunday School kids will be learning about Memorial Day and the symbol of the poppy. We will have poppies in Friendship Hall and a donation can help Joyce Kilmer Auxiliary raise money for their Veteran's projects.
