Reflection
 
- Yesterday we had a great celebration of Graduation Sunday and along with the Praise Team, Chancel Choir, and Chimes Choir all participated, we’ve made quite a joyful noise to the Lord. What a celebration and what a feast of the Kingdom of God!

- Linda Wells, who is one of the co-superintendents of our Sunday School with Jené Funk, did a great job of planning and leading the recognition of our graduates. Thank you also for preparing a boxed lunch for each of our high school graduates.

- Let me highlight our high school graduates with their immediate career plans: Abbey Goodridge of Ida High School is going to Monroe County Community College for child development; Alex Lenz of Dundee High School is going to Monroe County Community College for law enforcement; David Hoover of Dundee High School is going to Eastern Michigan University to become an RN specializing in psychiatric disorders and substance abuse patients; Patrick Davis of Dundee High School is going into the Air Force this summer; Cassie Fuller of Madison Heights High School (Her plan is not known).

- Please support and bless these high school graduates and our college graduates. Remember them in your prayers in the coming months as they are moving into the next phase of their life journey.

- Our long-time friend and church member Judy Fuller passed away last Saturday. Her memorial service is scheduled at 12:00 noon this Saturday at Cover’s Funeral Home. The visitation will be held Saturday at 10:00-12:00 before the service. Lunch will be provided at our church right after the service.
 
 
Prayer Concerns
 
Kristen Olsen asked for prayer for a friend with financial problems.  Mary Sandefur asked for travel mercies for Ellyn Sandefur as she travels around Europe before beginning a study abroad program.  Janice Adams asked for prayer for her son and daughter-in-law Brad and Monica Adams who are expecting their second child.  Dawn Wyse expressed a joy that her mother, Peggy Bush, is staying with her for the summer.  Pastor Andy also expressed joy for the graduates that were honored and all those that worked on the landscaping at the parsonage Saturday.  The youth group also had a joy that they were able to raise $1300 toward the expenses of the mission trip through Saturday's rummage sale.

If you’d like to sponsor a child for VBS, donations can be left in the offering plate or directly to Keri Secor.  Envelopes are in the pews, the glass case in the narthex, and on the table with the touch letters.  Thanks for supporting this fabulous ministry.

May's Mission is Cass Community Social Services/Detroit.  Cass Community Social Services of Detroit (founded by Cass Community United Methodist Church) provides emergency, transitional, and permanent supportive housing for 350 homeless men, women and children each night, in addition to 20,000 meals per week prepared and served utilizing several community gardens.  The mission offering envelopes are with the white cross labeled “Missions” and may be left in the box with the cross.

The Church is having a birthday!  Pentecost Sunday is June 4.  To celebrate, please bring your gift of red flowers to the church before Memorial Day (May 28) so they can be planted around the church grounds by Pentecost Sunday or help with a donation of coffee hour supplies.  Thank you!
