PRAYER CHAIN MINISTRY
Contact Dorothy Danner at 641-842-2557.
During this Easter season (and other major religious holidays) persons that are not involved in church are more open and receptive to an invitation to attend worship. We ask that you prayerfully consider the friends, relatives, acquaintances, and neighbors you know that don’t have a church home and invite them to visit our church. Better yet, offer to pick them up. To help you with this we have put together invitation packets that have a contemporary N.T. Bible as a gift, an invitation card, and a card listing all of the services during Holy Week. You can pick them up in office or speak to Pastor Lane.

CARE PACKAGE MISSION – A HUGE SUCCESS
The Education Cluster would like to send out a THANK YOU for the many donations given to our college students and our service men and women. We filled 25 College care packages and 14 Service men and women packages and mailed them out past Wednesday. This weekend we are asking for a special offering to cover the postage for those packages. Thank you all for your support! Education Cluster

CHAPEL ALTAR FLOWERS
The chapel altar flowers have been given in honor of Mike and Dorothy Larson’s 50th anniversary by Mary and Mike Thornburgh, Willie and Gladys Larson, and Diane and Bob DeWitt.
I want to say a grateful “thank you” for all the cards, telephone calls, and visits I have received while being in the hospital. They have really been appreciated. Also, thanks to Rev. Hill and Rev. Riggle for the hospital visits. How nice to have a great church family. May God bless each of you. Lela Todd
