Holy Week Services
Kid’s Club’s Psalm 23 (Composed by Callie, Maria and Weston with some input from Mrs. Margot)
The Lord is my Owner, I have everything that I need.
He makes me roll over for belly rubs and gives me a soft carpet to lie on.
He keeps my food and water bowl full and refreshes my mental health.
He fills my puppy heart with love and guides me with a leash on the right paths. It’s easy as chewing on a bone.
Even though I walk through the deepest forest paths or among noisy cats, I will fear nothing.
My leash and collar make me feel secure and just your presence comforts me. You will clean up my messes.
You prepare a familiar couch for me when the mailman comes to the door. You pet my head with your hands and you hold me close.
Surely my life will be full of adventure and joyful romps and I will follow you wherever you go.

30 Days of Prayer
30 Days invites Christians to pray with love and respect for Muslim peoples around the world. In doing so we hope to see Christians gain a better understanding about Muslim people, their faith and their various, diverse cultures; increases in efforts to respond with love and compassion to the needs of Muslims, and greater interest in Jesus among Muslim peoples. This happens with an annual prayer event coinciding with Ramadan each year and a prayer guide that enables Christians to pray regularly. pray30days.org/product/30-
