Typically we honor our highs school graduates in May but this year we have shifted Honoring the Graduates to a date late in the summer when (hopefully) we will be able to have in-person public worship. The graduates requested this. Please check out our graduates posts and web sites.

Deacon Retterer was our only new driver this year and he was recognized and blessed during our virtual worship service on March 22. Congratulations Deacon, and as the medallion received says, “Don’t drive any faster than your angel can fly.” (That goes for all the rest of you drivers too!)
New Offering Boxes
Thanks to Ernie Hollenbacher!!
Since we will no longer be able to pass the offering plates, Pastor Doug asked Ernie Hollenbacher to use his woodworking skills to design new ones. Ernie made beautiful wooden ones with a slot and closure. They are located in the narthex where members are being asked to drop off their offering envelopes.
Thanks to Carol Hegemier

Confirmation Date Postponed
Confirmation, originally scheduled for May 31, has been postponed until a date when all the youth are able to attend and when it can happen at an in-person public worship in which all of their relatives and guests are able to attend. The youth are willing to wait up to a year for this. The following young people have completed their catechetical requirements and are awaiting confirmation:

Thanks to all our teachers who prepared lessons and taught in our 2019-2020 Sunday School. Although we were not able to have our formal thank you and recognition due to the canceling of the in-person worship services, we are nonetheless deeply grateful for these individuals who have encouraged our children, youth and adults to grow in their faith as they come to know Jesus more fully.
