THE MAY NEWSLETTER is available! Please pick up your copy on the way out today if you receive the print version, or check your email if you receive the e-version. There are also extra copies in Crain Hall. If you would like to receive the newsletter, please pick up an address card from the greeters to submit to the church office. Thank you!

WALKING GROUP: Starting this Friday, May 6th, a group will gather in the parking lot under the Bourne Bridge every Friday in May at 9:00am. Bring your walking shoes, a bottle of water, and a willingness to be an encouragement to others. We will enjoy the fellowship and the glorious day that God has made.

THE THIRFT SHOP NEEDS VOLUNTEERS: Workers are needed especially on Fridays, either all day or for a morning or afternoon shift. Also, Saturdays have a rotating volunteer schedule and it would be helpful to have additional volunteers willing to work one Saturday a month or so.  If you are willing to help out in this important ministry to the community and our church, please speak with Judy Chamillard, Marsha Burt, Sue Weston, or Susan Goux.

CATAUMET SHELTER DONATIONS: We are continuing to collect items to support the folks living in the Cataumet Shelter. We need twin and full size sheets and blankets in clean, gently used condition, brand new pillows, and kitchen dishes, pots and pans, silverware, etc. Also, any small books, crayons, toys or games for the children living there would be appreciated. See Marsha Burt with questions.

BACKPACK PROJECT: We are collecting food items for our ongoing backpack project. For more information and a list of food needed, please pick up a flier on your way out to fellowship.  Thank you!
