----------  UPCOMING EVENTS ----------

 

FOOD PANTRY:  Please remember to bring your donations for our less fortunate neighbors. Donations for the Food Pantry will be delivered to the Zionsville Food Pantry. Please make sure items are within "use by" date.

Geraniums for Confirmation/Pentecost:  We ask your help in decorating the church by purchasing and dedicating Geranium(s) in memory or in honor of loved ones for Sunday, May 20. The plants are in 4 1/2" pots and cost $4.00 each. Please pick up a form in the back of the sanctuary or use the one included in your April newsletter. All orders and payments are due May 6.


A big THANK YOU to Lynn Geschel, Mary Schaeffer, and Sandy Schantz. This week, they completely redid the large bulletin board in the hallway across from the Sunday School office. It looks fresh and lovely for spring! Check it out.


Grace Knights Slo-Pitch Softball Team:  Their next game will be on Monday, May 7 at 6:15, at the Velodrome North field.  All games are double-headers - come cheer them on!  

 

Gracious Seniors Don't forget to sign up for our next Senior Luncheon! On Wednesday May 16 we will hear about "How the Pretzel Survived Prohibition." The meal will be spaghetti and meatballs, and of course, pretzels and root beer. Signing up in advance helps us to know how much food we need to prepare. Please bring a dessert or drink to share.

 

Community Meal: As part of our Free Community Meal on Friday May 11, we will include a table with personal care items for people to take. This month we will be providing toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, and shampoo. If you care to provide any of those items, there is a box near the ramp entrance in which you can place the items. We are so pleased with the way our volunteers are actively supporting this project and the way you, our congregation, have helped this new Outreach get off to a flying start.
