Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

This Sunday, May 28, is Pentecost Sunday. Wear RED to represent the Holy Spirit!

Newsflash: The HOLY SPIRIT special is happening with our Popcorn sale. Buy 2 bags for the price of 1. $4 for two bags of POPCORN – BOOM CHICKA POP! For sale before and after worship in the Narthex.

This is the last Sunday to vote for our Summer Worship time. We are debating between 9:30 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. There will be a consistory member at the back of the sanctuary each Sunday of May to take your preference. Majority will win. Call the church office or email me with your vote if you won’t be getting to worship this month.

Please return your paperwork for our service on June 4th. Thanks! or text/call/email if you need me to pick anything up.

June 4 – Communion, SS children singing, lunch after worship. Special happenings in worship. Don’t miss this! Last Sunday School, last Sunday Confirmation class for the summer.

Doing Spring Cleaning? Want to join in the yard sale at my house, 27 W. Berger Street, Emmaus on Saturday, June 3 from 8 – 1 p.m.? The All Emmaus yard sale is that day and I have been fortunate to have a steady stream of shoppers over the years. The money raised is for the church so I am happy to take your donations to sell or welcome you with a table on my lawn 🙂

They will be talking about the new rules for RMDs plus Estate Planning, plus being available to answer your questions. I have begun working with these folks on my investments and find them to be genuinely helpful, full of integrity, and very responsive to any concerns and requests I have. More on this soon. Lunch provided. Learning is real!

As always, we have many members and friends in need of prayer due to death, illness, new living situations, and other difficult times; remember, too, those who still recover from war, oppression, and natural disasters all around the world. We also have many members and friends celebrating joys, from new babies to cancer remission and so much more. Please continue your faithful prayers for comfort, strength, healing, and thankfulness. Thank you for being the church!
