NEW BIBLE STUDY IN COFFEE SHOP
IF is a powerful little word. Some people are stuck in “if
only”, trudging through lives marked with regret. But God wants us to
live lives marked with possibilities, with the “what if” attitude that looks
forward to the future with confidence. Why? Because the answer to “If
God is for us, who can be against us?” is “No one.” God is always on our
side. Every day, in every way.

“On behalf of the CMU Band I would like to offer thanks to your
congregation for hosting us during our annual spring tour. We are so
grateful to you for opening your sanctuary for us to perform in and for
providing two wonderful meals for us. We are also grateful for your
church members who opened their homes to our students for the night.
Our annual spring tour is one of the highlights of our year, and being
able to share it with you was a great pleasure for us.
Thank you again for your warm hospitality.”

Please pray for those within our church

SPOTLIGHT PRAYER FOCUS THIS WEEK
Our prayers this week are for the Boy Scout Troop #38 led by Jon Funk.
There are 18 boys in the troop. This week there are 3 Cub Scouts
crossing over to Boy Scouts which will increase that number. The Boy
Scouts have different kinds of activities for the boys. They camp out
about once a month (in all kinds of weather). In May there is a
canoe trip on the Buffalo River. In June there is a Summer
Camp. Then in July, 6 boys and 2 adults are going to Sea Base
which is a Boy Scout camp in Florida. Please focus your prayers
this week on the leaders and the boys of this Troop.
Come help celebrate with Carly Renfro for her
upcoming wedding to Kyle Baugh. The celebration will
be in room C101 from 2:00-4:00pm on April 17th.
Your presence would be your gift to them.

“Why did I not perish at birth,
and die as I came from the womb?
Why were there knees to receive
and breasts that I might be nursed?
For now I would be lying down in
I would be asleep and at rest
with kings and rulers of the earth,
who built for themselves places
now lying in ruins,
with princes who had gold,
who filled their houses with silver.
Or why was I not hidden away in
the ground like a stillborn child,
like an infant who never saw the
light of day?
“Why is light given to those in
and life to the bitter of soul,
to those who long for death that
does not come,
who search for it more than for
who are filled with gladness
and rejoice when they reach the
Why is life given to a man
whose way is hidden,
whom God has hedged in?
