The Oak Grove Pavilion season is about to start and we need volunteers to spiff up the pavilion for the guests we'll soon be welcoming. Clean-up time is this Saturday, May 30, from 10 am to 3 pm. Pizza lunch will be provided!
Thank you to everyone who helped make our Pentecost worship and potluck go so well: Walt Way and Billy Motley for transporting tables and hymnals; Marty Holliday and Rebbecca Jackson for coming up with great craft ideas; Vickie Sowers and the choir for the music and all who brought food for a delicious meal.
Bzzzz. It's almost time for those pesky mosquitoes to arrive. As you reach for the insect repellant, won't you get out your checkbook and make a contribution to the Virginia Synod's Malaria Campaign? In Papua New Guinea, mosquitoes are more than a nuisance; they also carry deadly malaria. We can help by purchasing mosquito nets for the residents of Papua New Guinea, where our sister synod is located. Ten dollars buys one net; we have a parish goal of 50 nets. Checks may be made payable to The Virginia Synod, with Malaria Campaign on the note line. You may give or mail your check to Diane Giessler; she will mail them to the synod office.
David Harman had back surgery today at Carilion New River Valley; the surgery went well and he is resting this afternoon. He will be in the hospital for 2 or 3 days. We pray for a successful and quick recovery.
So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today. - Matthew 6:34
Yours in Christ,
