The Committee on Foreign Missions has appointed Dr. Jim and Jenny Knox as Missionary Associates for two years to Mbale to work with the OPC Uganda Mission alongside the Jacksons and the Tuiningas. They will be presenting their work on Wednesday, May 22 at 7:00 pm. Please join us to hear of their work and how you may support their work financially and through prayer.
Update on the WORKDAY: The deacons’ schedule will not permit another Saturday workday in the near future, so they have determined it best to have several weekday evening work times beginning tonight. If you are able to volunteer some time on any of these evenings, the elders and deacons would appreciate your labors. Here is the proposed work schedule: May 14 and 15 (tonight and tomorrow) and May 21, 23, and 24 (next week). The work will begin around 6:00 and end near dark. Tonight is Lumberjack Night! The deacons will cut down the dead maple tree in the front and trim the hedges along the front of the building.
Our next fellowship lunch is Sunday, June 2 after the morning service. Our food theme is open for suggestions. Please bring a main dish or side dish to share.
Please keep the upcoming OPC General Assembly (June 5-11) in prayer. About 250 commissioners, fraternal delegates, permanent committee members, and support staff will be traveling to Dallas for our annual meeting.
New Song, the a Capella singing group from Geneva College will return for a concert on Monday, June 24. Details will follow. We are asked to host the students for a night. If you would be interested, let an elder know.
