behold, the new has come. “
- Meal Schedules for Babies
We have been abundantly blessed with five (5!) additions to our covenant family in the past month. We welcomed Bennet Adams on March 24, Leopold Worman on April 3, Quinn Hughes on April 12, Carter Heflin on April 17, and Thea Miller on April 19. All mamas and little ones are doing well. We have linked the concurrent meal schedules, if you might be willing and able to claim one of the remaining needs. If you have any questions, please contact Amy Auker who serves as the Meals/Reception Coordinator for the Women’s Ministry Committee.

- Help Needed For the past several years Steve Reed has driven T.J. Cotton and his girls to and from church. T.J. lives close to Old Plank Road.
Steve is currently having serious medical issues and is unable to drive. It
would be a blessing to the Reeds and the Cottons if someone was willing to
coordinate lifts to ensure T.J. and his girls can continue coming to church.
Perhaps several families could take turns giving him lifts. Please also
pray for Steve’s health.
