#1 BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS

In celebration of Earth Day, over sixty five people showed up in our Memorial Garden this past Sunday, nearly all of them with dogs in tow (there was one rat, two virtual horses and not a single cat!) for our 2nd Annual Blessing of the Animals.  We sang, we prayed and we reveled in the gift of these furry companions who bring so much joy to our lives. What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon! You can see all those cute canines and their proud parents on our Facebook Page.

#2 UMCOR SUNDAY
Join us as for worship this coming Sunday as we welcome guest preacher, Rev. Brian Diggs, who is the Associate Director of the UMCOR West Depot in Salt Lake City where our VIM teams have been serving for several years now. There will be a display in Fellowship Hall highlighting the incredible work of our Volunteers in Mission over the last 30 years and we will be taking a special offering for global relief work through United Methodist Committee On Relief. If you’ve got a VIM or UMCOR t-shirt, wear it this Sunday!

# 3 GARAGE SALE HELP
The Spring Garage Sale is less than two weeks away on Saturday, May 5. Now is the perfect time to clean out your closets, kitchen cabinets, book shelves, garage and basement and drop off your items beginning May 2. We need hundreds of people to help out with the week before the sale (starting Wednesday), the day of the sale and with clean-up. Sign-ups just began yesterday in Fellowship Hall and you can contact Lori Sexton to let her know you can help.

#4 HOLY LAND TRIP
Rev. Ron & Holly are hosting a pilgrimage to Israel and Germany in 2020. Come be part of this once-in-a-lifetime (or decade, at least!) opportunity to see the Passion Play in Oberammergau, and visit the Holy Land. There will be an informational meeting this Sunday, April 29 at 10:30am & 12noon in the Parlor for anyone who is curious. Contact Rev. Ron with questions or for more information.

#5 VBS VOLUNTEERS
Did you know that if we had 6 more adult volunteers for VBS Week 1 (July 9-13), we could include 20 more children? There are over 50 children on the waiting list! Please contact Erica know if you are willing to help as a preschool crew leader, preschool Bible storyteller, or elementary craft leader.

#5A PLAY BALL!
Our very own SPUMC Co-Ed Softball Team kicks off the season this coming Sunday at 2pm at Cypress Field #2! We are looking for players to join us. Come out and cheer the team on or grab a glove and play! Contact Lori Sexton for more information.
