Small Groups: It was decided in our congregational meeting to give small groups a trial run. We will begin having a morning small group at the church building on Monday’s beginning on June 3rd at 10 a.m. We will also have an evening small group meeting at the Ash home on Tuesday’s beginning on June 4th at 7 p.m. This will be a trial for June, July, and August and will be reevaluated at the beginning of September. We’d like to keep the group to around 16 in number. Sign up sheets are in the foyer through May 24.

June:  As a follow-up to the congregational meeting in April, in the month of June we will begin a few changes.

  • Beginning June 2, Bible Classes will begin at 9:00 a.m. and Worship will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings.  This will continue through the summer and will be re-evaluated in August.
  • We will begin a small group ministry.  We will begin with one group.  If you would like to be a host family, please let Brad or Mike know.  Details to follow.
  • In those months with a fifth Sunday, we will change our Worship for the day to 9:00 a.m. Bible Class, 10:00 a.m. Worship Service, lunch at the building, followed by a devotional after lunch. There will be NO EVENING SERVICE on these occasions.  This will first occur on June 30.

Ladies Day:  Thank you to the ladies of the congregation who assisted with the Ladies Day on April 27.  Over 80 ladies from northeastern Ohio attended the morning featuring Monica Mynk.  A special “thank you” is extended to Laura Bennett and Joyce Miles for their leadership in planning the event.

Congratulations!  We would like to extend our congratulations to Joseph Brock who received a High Scorer Award at the Lads to Leaders and Leaderettes Convention in the K-2 Individual Bible Bowl Test for scoring in the top ten in his age group.  Way to go, Joseph!

Men’s Retreat:  The men, young men, and boys of the congregation are encouraged to save-the-date for the upcoming men’s retreat in the fall.  The keynote speaker will be Dr. Glenn Pennington, Associate bible professor at Ohio Valley University.  The retreat will take place on October 25 and 26 at Camp CHOF (in Dalton).  The cost will be $50 per person and will include overnight accommodations, dinner, breakfast, lunch, and all classes.  Be sure to put the date on your calendar!  See Paul Couch or Earl Ash for details.
