This week’s concerns and joys:

*Thanks to Marge Cunningham, Susan Strobl, their team of helpers and all who contributed food for our coffee fellowship with our guests from St. John’s Lutheran Church. Thank you to Steve and our vocalist for their part in an enriching worship service. What at joyful morning it was!

*Many thanks to those who attended the first organizing meeting for our 2019 Block Party and School Supply Giveaway last Thursday. Not only was there a great spirit but we also got a good deal ready to roll. Be sure to look in bulletins and on bulletin boards to see how you can help this great community outreach effort.

*Best wishes to Donnie Blickenstaff, Jr., Betty Getz, Todd Faith, Larry Hartsock, Terry Trovinger and Sandy Myers who celebrate birthdays this week. Congratulations to Dick and Pat Manspeaker and Larry and Sharon Hartsock who have wedding anniversaries this week.
