OUR CHURCH FAMILY will be growing rapidly in the next couple months as we have quite a few expectant mommies! In the past, Berny Schluesner has graciously taken care of setting up meals for new moms and for those recovering from surgeries/sickness. Thank you, Berny! We are going to utilize MealTrain which is a website that you can choose a date to deliver food, see any food allergies that the family may have, and/or food preferences. Karen will send out an email when there is a need and you can simply log-on to the website using the link in the email. You will then click on the calendar to add what date you would like. The recipient’s email, phone number and address will also be available. The recipient will also be able to view when people will be coming and block out dates that they will be gone or already have a meal coming. Food is a great way to bless a family and one less thing for families to worry about during a busy time. If you aren’t comfortable logging into MealTrain, please let Hope Radke or Karen Feeley know and we will get your information into the website. A Facebook post will also be available with the link.
Please remember to be in prayer for our campers who are going to HIDDEN ACRES this summer. The winner of the $10 canteen card at Hidden Acres for registering before May 1 was Sara Feeley.
PREPARING TO WORSHIP: If you would like to listen to the songs in preparation for Sunday morning, Pastor Steve Stepec has been posting a playlist with song titles and artists, as well as a Spotify list for Sunday morning worship on our ACEFC Facebook page each week. Spotify accounts are free to sign up for, or use whatever media you prefer.
CHURCH OFFICE HOURS: Karen’s office hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10:00 AM-3:00 PM. Announcements for the bulletin and PowerPoint should be in the church office by Friday noon.
