News for the week of May 16-20, 2018
Pentecost Pig Roast — Did I mention that our annual Pig Roast is this Sunday? There will be no Evening Service. The pig roast fellowship on the parking lot will begin at 6 PM. Please remember to bring two side dishes (salad, appetizer, beans, potato salad, cake, pie, etc). Also, bring drinks and chairs. Invite your family and friends. There will be plenty of pork to share!
Vacation Bible School Registration — Registration has opened! You can register here. VBS will be happening this year on July 16-20.
Teachers and Volunteers Needed — Looking for a great ministry opportunity this summer? Volunteer for VBS! We typically serve 60-100 kids each year and need your help! There are a variety of ways to be involved - no commitment is too small. See Anna More for more details or to volunteer. 314-600-3525 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Week’s Scripture Passage — Proverbs 24:19-20
Fret not yourselves because of evildoers,
and be not envious of the wicked,
for the evil man has no future;
the lamp of the wicked will be put out.
