INTRODUCTION - Easter initiates a new day. It anticipates a new heaven and a new earth. The risen Lord is making all things new. In the mystery of holy baptism God has made new people of us. Today the Lord Jesus invites us to see everyone in a new light—through the lens of love.
Worship Servers: Each Sunday morning please meet in the workroom five minutes before the service begins for prayer with Pastor and the assisting minister.
Today’s altar flowers are given to the glory of God by the Rudy family in memory of Lee Smith, Jo Ann’s mother and John and Charles Rudy.

Church Spring Cleaning
Dates have been set to spruce up the Church before the 50th Anniversary. The dates are Thursday May 23rd, Friday May 24th, and Saturday May 25th with core cleaning hours for each day from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Arrive early, stay late, choose a day-just bring the clean! Sign-up sheets will be placed in the Narthex after Easter.
ACTS Food Drive
We began our Third Annual Food Drive for ACTS on May 1st. Our Quest is to provide ACTS with 5,000 pounds of food during the month of May. There is always less food in the summer, but the need is greater because the children (from Neabsco School and other areas) who were getting a free breakfast and lunch at school will be coming to ACTS for their food since they are on break. Shopper's Management has agreed to allow us to solicit food from their customers on May 11th from 9-1. Please pick up a shopping list in the entryway, and/or join us at Shoppers on the 11th. Let's continue the LCOC extravagant generosity!
Thank you all so very much,
