Celebration Midweek – May 9

OFFERING FOR SOLAR BIBLES
Sunday we collected $368 or Dave DeBoer to buy 10 Solar Bibles for his trip to Mozambique at the end of May!  For a country where half of the people cannot read the Bible, this audio Bible is important for ministry.  Dave is leaving to visit and work with our friend Brenda Lange with Orphans Unlimited.  We pray the Bibles will be useful in ministry for Brenda and her team. Great job Celebration!

CONGREGATIONAL MEETING
We will have a congregational meeting on May 20 after church.  Much of the meeting will be about the progress in the building project at church and other ministry reports.  We will approve additional leaders for the upcoming year.  Brian Vredevoogd has agreed to be considered for elder and there are others who are still pondering their decision.
