MEMORIAL DAY: Each May, the United States celebrates a day called Memorial Day. Memorial Day was first widely observed in May 1868. The celebration commemorated the sacrifices of the Civil War and the proclamation was made by General John A. Logan. Following the proclamation, participants decorated more than 20,000 Union and Confederate soldier’s graves. In the following years since World War 1, the day has become a celebration of honor for those brave men and women who died in all America’s wars, as well as those who are Veterans and current members of the U.S. military. Memorial Day was declared a national holiday in 1971. The U.S. celebrates this holiday the last Monday of May (tomorrow May 31). We thank God for the sacrifice of all that have gone before (veterans and civilians) who have sacrificed for our nation.

NO SUNDAY SCHOOL today! Summer Sunday school will be held the last Sunday of June, July and August.

BIBLE CLASS: The adult Bible class will continue the series: “Dangerous Teachings of Christianity.” Today the focus will be on atheism, which denies the existence of God. Today’s atheism is different from the atheism of Madalyn Murry O’Hair of the 1960s. Actually, there is no such thing of as atheism, because everyone, no exceptions, exalts something as god. How can you engage in conversation with today’s atheist? Come to this morning’s Bible and explore the possibility.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL will be held July 12-15 from 5-8 p.m. and the closing program will be on Sunday, July 18th during the church service. A sign-up sheet for volunteers is up in the back of church. Please consider helping with this mission right here in our own community. Registration for students will begin in June.

THE LYF will be having their Senior Farewell and Freshman Welcome party on Sunday, June 6th at the park at 5:00 pm. Supper will be served. There will be a short meeting to start the night and new officers will be elected.

A DIGITAL SIGN is being considered to replace the sign on the NE corner of the church. A poster has been made and is in the back of church this morning. Donations from memorials and/or members is how the sign will be paid for. Any comments or suggestions may be given to the committee members: LaDonna Stanosheck, Randy Pfanstiel and Deb Gutz.

Nelson and family for the donation of $1588 made to Mission Central distributed to them to help them deploy to Southeast Asia, where he will serve as a regional Theological Educator.
