GUESS WHO'S TURNING 40?
You've heard about the Child Development Center's 40th Anniversary in June, but do you know it includes a silent auction? We're seeking 50 interesting new or gently used items. Items received to date include artwork from the collection of Tanya Copeland and a 5x8 area rug in shades of blue and green. Do you have a timeshare week you'd be willing to auction off? For more information, contact Laura Richards at email@example.com
. Thank for your support.
A STEWARDSHIP PRAYER - All generous God, you poured yourself out in creation, were totally spent in Christ’s death on the cross, and continue to give yourself through the gift of your Holy Spirit to us. Give us generous hearts; that, in response to your love, our lives may overflow in thanksgiving and generosity, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
