ANTHEM               We Have Seen the Risen Lord                Chancel Choir


  This is the day;

when healing touches the suffering, when loneliness discovers a family,

when peace caresses the stressed.

This is the day the Lord:

breaks free of death’s clutches, rolls away the stone, folds the grave

clothes into a neat pile.

This is the day the Lord has made:

the day of sin’s defeat, the day of resurrection, the first day of the new


This is the day!

Christ Is Risen! Hallelujah!


*HYMN OF PRAISE #302 (blue hymnal) (stz. 1-4)

 Christ the Lord Is Risen Today”


Truly we know that the Lord our God shows no prejudice.

In every nation those who honor God by doing good shall find the

Love of God.

You know the word given us to spread:

God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. And Jesus went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed, for God was with him.

We are witnesses to all that Jesus did.

They put him to death by hanging him on a tree. But God raised him from the dead that we might see him in all power. Though we had betrayed him three times before his death, he returned to us. Though we had denied him before the rooster’s crow, he ate and drank with us by the sea after he had risen.


And when you had finished breakfast, Jesus said, “Children of God, do you love
            me more than your own?”

“Yes, Lord; you know that we love you.”

“Feed my lambs.” Then a second time he said to you, “Children of God, do you

love me?”

“Yes, Lord; you know that we love you.”

“Tend my sheep.” And he said to you the third time, “Children of God, do you love me?”

“Lord, we grieve that you ask us the third time. You know everything;

you know that we love you.”

“Feed my sheep and follow me.”

“The Lord is our shepherd, we shall not want…..Though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we fear no evil….Surely goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives; and we shall dwell in the house of the Lord for ever”

Summer Camp – Time to start planning!

Camp brochures should be here – if you did not get one in the mail you can find them on the bulletin board as you come in to the church or in the Education Office.  Deadline for the Early Bird price is April 30th.  The church & UMW will take care of ½ of the early bird cost of one camp per youth. If your youth is going to more than one camp you are responsible for the cost of the other camps.  If you register after April 30th – the church & UMW will only pay for ½ of the early bird cost.  You will be responsible for the difference between early bird and full price.

The registration process is a little different this year.   You will need to call Lisa in the office to get the church code that you will enter on the registration form this code will automatically subtract the church’s portion from your payment.  Full payment is due when you register this year. To do this you will be able to select one of 2 options:  to pay in full or pay monthly with automatic credit card payments.  If you choice the automatic credit card payments the first payment will be for $75 and balance of the amount you owe will be divided equally by the months remaining through August (ex: if you register in March and the camp you register for is $300, the church code will lower your payment to $150.  $75 will be charged to your credit card at the time of registration, the remaining $75 will be divided by 5months so at the first of each month from April to August $15 will be charged to your credit card.)  You will be able to register more than one person at a time but if you are registering the same person for more than one camp you need to do a separate registration online for the second camp.  If you have questions about this process you can call Lisa in the office or Diane Kisch at 660-1242.

The Conference runs a Cross State Bus to Storm Mountain – if you plan to have your youth ride the bus you must mark it on your registration form.

We encourage you to attend camps that other youth in your grades are going to – hopefully we can carpool whenever possible.  Remember if your child is riding with someone it is common courtesy to help cover the cost of gas.  If you plan to use the church van – it needs to be half full (8 people or more – if you only have 7 and feel you need to use the church van check with the chairperson of the Trustees, Pastor Bob or Rev Ron).  Those riding in the van are responsible for gas.  Lisa in the office needs to know if you would like your youth to ride in the church van or carpool with others.  She will be able to tell you if anyone else is signed up for a camp you are thinking about. It is very helpful if Lisa gets a copy of your registration forms so she knows what camps you youth are going to.

For the 1st – 3rd graders we need to have 1 adult attend camp with every 5 campers.  There is a cost for Shepherds that attend SonShine camp (K & 1st graders) & DaySpring (2nd & 3rd graders). 

  Remember the grade listed for each camp is the grade the camper is currently in.
