Word for the Week ~ 5/6/2019
Sunday was a great day for our church as we commissioned our new 16th President of the University of Central Missouri, Dr. Roger Best and his wife Robin, along with our high school and college graduates. It was good to see so many participating by wearing UCM’s school colors for the service. It was also a mixed day of emotions as we said our final farewells to J.R. Reynolds at 4:00 p.m. in a Celebration Service for him and his family. It was a very moving service. J.R. will be sorely missed.
Special Mother’s Day Services: This Sunday we will be having a special Mother’s Day service and Baby Dedication on May 12th. We have a special gift for all of our moms, and if you have a child you would like to dedicate to the Lord, please contact the church office today so that we can make arrangements to include your family. Tammy will collect the information we need to have for the event. This will include your child’s name, birthdate, and a scripture verse that you would like read.
Memory Monday will meet today at 2:30 p.m. in The Park. It is really a great time as our students come to receive help with school homework, play games, memorize Scripture, and share a great time of food and fellowship with the other students. Please encourage your youth in grades 6-12 to come join the fun. Call Logan for more information at (225) 963-0236.
