IN GENESIS the Bible says, “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” This Sunday (April 22, 2018) is Earth Day and we all should be thinking of ways to help take care of God’s creation. Consider coming to church this week in jeans (or bring a change of clothes) so that after our service (and brief refreshments in celebration for the new communion class) we can do some outside spring cleaning. Please consider coming to church to help clean up God’s house and bring your work gloves, rakes, etc.. so we can tidy up and get ready for the summer foliage. Call John Forster with any questions.
