Spring time is Gardening time!

Spring is here! And that means that Chris Thompson is already busy in his garden.

Chris says, “The garlic emerged on St. Patricks Day… This is about 700 heads. They had that nice warm week but since then frost or freeze every night.  They endured one night of 16 degrees and laughed at it.  Our Creator made this plant tough!”

Behold your King is coming to you!

Say to Daughter Zion,
   ‘See, your king comes to you,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
   and on a colt, the foal of a donkey” (Matthew 21:6).

This is the scripture from Matthew 21:6 (prophesied in Zechariah 9:9), that Bunny shared in church this morning. Are our hearts ready for Jesus’ triumphant return? Bunny encouraged us to read Mark 11 during this upcoming Holy Week, as we prepare our hearts for Easter Sunday.

The following announcements, joys and concerns were shared today:

  • Thursday (April 5), Janet-Lee needs a ride to Saranac Lake for a medical appointment; she needs to be there by 10:10 am. Please call Janet-Lee at 624-3905 if you can give her a ride. Please keep praying for Janet-Lee as she heals.
  • Friday (April 6), from 6:30 – 8:30 pm, the church will be open for prayer, a quiet time of reflection, and communion. There will not be a formal service, but Bunny will be available to serve communion.
  • Easter Sunrise Service (April 8) will be held at 7:30 am at the LL Town Beach. The Methodist Church is hosting this and a breakfast following at the Town Hall. All are welcome.
  • Marty is in the hospital, but Joyce hopes to bring him home tomorrow (Monday). Please keep Marty and Joyce in your prayers.
  • Bunny, Laurinda and Louisa had a great trip to Houghton to see Brianna in the musical, “West Side Story.”
  • Welcome to Brian & Sharon and their 3 girls, and others who were in church.
