Prayer, Healing and Prophetic Rooms open

THE WEEKLY UPDATE

We only have one Wednesday service left before we take a summer break. If you need prayer or a prophetic word or would like to participate in worship and prayer, next Wednesday is it. Service begins at 6:30 p.m. We also will take a break in the children and youth areas.

This Sunday, we will have a prophetic and ministry service during the 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services. Intercessory prayer will not meet that morning and the youth will stay in the second service.

The men’s Sunday School class that meets at 9 a.m. each Sunday will not meet on May 19. It will resume the following week.

While Wednesday services are taking a break, we will have picnic in the park from 6:00-8:30 p.m. on June 12. Join us at Sam Houston Park for an evening for fellowship.

On June 20, there will be a Ladies Night Out at the church. All women are invited at 6:30 p.m. for a spa night and salad potluck dinner. Please sign up in the foyer.

It’s time to sign up for the men’s golf tournament, scheduled for 8 a.m., June 29, at Arrowhead. Cost is $50 and includes lunch at the church at 1 p.m. Sign up in the foyer. Talk to Kerry Luke for more information.

If you don’t want to play golf but would like to join us for lunch, the lunch will be at 1 p.m. at the church. I’m not sure about the cost at this moment.

This is the first call for the Ladies Road Trip to Santa Fe, scheduled for Nov. 1-3. The group will stay at the Hacienda Hotel and Spa. Prices will vary depending on how many people are in each room. Fifty percent of the cost is due by July 14 and the balance is due by Sept. 8. Please see a brochure at the information desk in the foyer.

Thought for the week:

 

· In his own quest for Jesus, Philip Yancey found the need to… “strip away layers of dust and grime applied by the church itself. In my case, the image of Jesus was obscured by the racism, intolerance and petty legalism of fundamentalist churches.” (Philip Yancey)

This couple is killed the night before their wedding. They go to heaven and they ask St. Peter if they can be married. St. Peter says, “Okay. I’ll come and get you when we can do that.”

Ten years later, he tells the couple, “Okay. We can have your wedding now.” So, they get married with a minister and flowers, nice music and all but soon realize they made a mistake.

They go to St. Peter and say they want a divorce. St. Peter says, “Okay. I’ll come and tell you when we can do that.”

The couple asks, “How long will that take?”

St. Peter replies, “It took 10 years to get a preacher up here. Who knows how long it’s going to take before a lawyer shows up!”

A bunch of salesmen went to the funeral of another salesman. They looked down at him in his coffin. “Gosh, he looks terrible. What did he have?”

“North Dakota, South Dakota, western Minnesota…”

This guy’s father dies and he tells the funeral director he wants to give his dad the very best. So, they have the funeral and the director sends him a bill for $16,000. He pays it. A month later, he gets a bill for $85, which he pays.

The next month there’s another $85 bill and the next month there’s another. Finally, the guy calls up the funeral director.

The director says, “Well, you said you wanted the best for your dad so I rented him a tux.”

That’s all, folks. Enjoy the rest of your week.
