Listen: the heart of God calls to us.

Come, my beloved, my chosen; come home to me.

Let us respond to the invitation with joy and laughter.

Let us bring our dreams and hopes, our jars of ointment,

*OFFERTORY RESPONSE #95 (UM hymnal)

“Praise God, from Whom All Blessings Flow”

*PRAYER OF DEDICATION

*HYMN OF DEDICATION   When Mary Poured a Rich Perfume”

By Carolyn Gillette

(Tune: #152 “I Sing the Almighty Power of God”)

 

When Mary poured a rich perfume on Jesus’ weary feet,

Her caring filled that humble room; the fragrance there was sweet.

But full of anger, Judas said, “We could have used this more!

Why was her gift not sold instead, and given to the poor?”

 

The Lord replied, “Leave her alone! She bought it for this day.

This caring love that she has shown is faithful to God’s way.

The poor will always be with you, but you will not have me.”

He blessed her and he thanked her, too, for giving lavishly.

 

O Christ, what can your people bring to show you thanks and love?

You need no fragrant offering; for now you reign above.

Since there will never cease to be the poor throughout the land,

May we, your church, serve faithfully by offering them our hand.

- Camp Scholarship Funds with the Dakotas Foundation This fund was established to assist youth with camping registrations and/or expenses.  The main sponsor of this scholarship came from Ethel Schenk who originally contributed $3,750.  This amount, along with other memorial gifts from various people who designated the funds to be used towards camp scholarships, made up the balance. This money is invested with the Dakotas Foundation. This money is intended to assist families that have youth (1st grade through graduating seniors) attending camp that express the need for additional financial support to cover their share of the cost.   The way the money will be distributed is any family that would like a little extra financial help is to fill out a Camp Scholarship Card located in the church office and place it in the decorated box by Sunday, April 1st. The Education committee has a formula established to equally split the $500 amongst the designated recipients as an equal percent based on the cost of each camp.  It is the hope of the Finance and Education Committees that people will contribute to this fund and the size of our investment will grow so that the amount of money we are able to distribute grows.

 

 

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 to be spread over three months. 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, 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.

Student Ministries

Sr. High 9th12th grade

We meet on Wednesday nights in the Youth Room. 7:15-8:45pm Lesson and discussion 

 

Current Message Series: Renegade Gospel

 Who was Jesus, really? Wasn’t the central figure to the Christian faith a man who denied all preconceived notions about what God should look like? Wouldn’t associating with him have meant joining a rebel movement? Doesn’t it still? Renegade Gospel is a church study that challenges believers to come to terms with the real Jesus—the rebel Jesus.

 

 

KFC 6th–8th grade

 

We meet Sunday nights in the Youth Room 6:30pm-7:30pm
