What Does It Mean to be Chosen?” come and see. Contact Deacons Cheryl or Karen for further information. It all starts at 6:00 pm!

PWC Kids is this Sunday, May 1 beginning at 9:30 am in Building 4:12. This interactive bible study will focus on the Gospel reading that is proclaimed to the adults at worship.

Looking for a book for summer reading? On Sunday, Fr. Dale suggested the book Learning to Pray by James Martin.

Please pray for the vulnerable in our society.
