Thanks to Pastor Bill Siebert for his sermon Sunday while Marie and I were in Peoria, IL for the 63rd National German Song Festival. It is quite an experience singing in a choir with around 800 members! My mistakes were drowned out by those who knew the music better. 
This Sunday I begin a sermon series from 1 Peter. In Chapter 1:1-12 Peter describes our salvation, using words which should encourage everyone who has placed their trust in Jesus.   
Wednesday Bible study continues at 3:30. We will continue our study of the Sermon on the Mount focusing on the Beatitudes. Choir will not meet Wednesday but will be singing on Sunday. After Sunday the choir will be resting their voices until next September. Marion Keith will be on vacation this Sunday and we welcome Dorothy Merrill back to the organ. We do special music during the summer months so if you want to sing see Marion. 
The annual academic excellence awards banquet will be held this Thursday at 6:30 at the high school gym. We are very proud of Kamryn Yach who will be honored as this years Valedictorian. Good job Kamryn! Two of our retired teachers, Jackie Barb and Elaine Simmons, will also be honored. Our little congregation is well represented in our school system! 
Thanks to an anonymous donation we will be purchasing new upholstered chairs for the fellowship hall. If you want 1 to 4 of the old metal chairs there is a sign up sheet in the fellowship hall.  
Looking ahead, our annual picnic will be on June 9th following our worship service. It will be held at the Bowman’s if the weather is nice. If we have rainy weather we will picnic in the fellowship hall.
