Parents Night Out has reached Capacity
Thank you for your interest in participating in this Saturday’s (May 11) “Parents Night Out,” an event to sponsor this summer’s WOW mission trip. There has been a great response from parents,
who have submitted an RSVP for the event. Due to their interest, the event has reached its capacity and will not be able to accommodate “walk-ins” the evening of the event.
We thank all who intended to participate and regret that we will not have the ability to allow for more to participate.
Please keep an eye out for our next fundraising event:
A family movie night in June.

Let me know if you need a bit more enticement…
GONE BUT NOT ABSENT
ANYONE who has experienced the death of a loved one
knows how devastated Jesus’ disciples must have felt
when he told them he was going away for good.
The “Advocate” he promised to send must have seemed like
a poor substitute for the flesh-and-blood Jesus
whom they had come to love and depend upon.
When a loved one dies, it’s natural to feel that the relationship has ended.
After all, we can’t visit them anymore
or call them on the phone to share news or ask advice.
Still, they can be present to us in ways
that would have been impossible while they were here with us on Earth.
In the years since my mother died,
I have regularly felt her presence during times of confusion and doubt.
I know that she is with me all the time, even though I can’t see her.
I talk to her and know that she hears me.
I ask her for comfort and guidance and,
in one way or another, I always receive it.
Fortunately we don’t need a phone or the internet to reach a loved one.
We simply need to be willing to enter the silence
where they reside.
