Fifth Sunday of Easter 


Friday, May 1, 2015

"I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinegrower." John 15:1  



 "Abide in me as I abide in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, either can you unless you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I am in them bear much fruit." 

URGENT PRAYER REQUEST: Today,  Wednesday, Lynn O'Brien fell in her yard, hit her head and has been airlifted to Mercy Hospital in Springfield with numbness and inability to move her legs. Heather and Ross are with her. I will update you as soon as I know more. Please pray for peace and healing. 

 We are still in the midst of our Easter celebration. Bring flowers for the altar if you have some growing in your yard!

 Note the sign-up sheet in the parish hall for bringing sweet or savory food for our Sunday coffee hour. We've had some great, creative treats recently - and the conversation is even better! 


Classes for readers and worship leaders will begin during June - please mark your calendars. We'll try to meet for 45 minutes after Church while others are enjoying the coffee hour in the parish hall. (Food will be brought to us!)


May 3 - Everyone is invited to stay after Church (subs for workers!) to help clean up the grounds and clean OUT the sheds so we can store items for the June 6 and June 13 Garage Sale. Eric Schmidt is in charge of both cleaning and Sale - see him for more info.


May 24 - Feast of Pentecost - the culmination of Easter with a baptism, potluck meal and celebration after Church - and the afternoon graduation of Marcus Cox from Bolivar High School.   


May 31 - First day of summer schedule. Eucharist at 9:30 AM. Baby shower for Tanya Schmidt immediately after church.


June 6 and 13 - garage sale dates. You may bring items anytime after May 3 - We will have storage available.


June 28 - Celebration of St Alban's Day, with 9:30 Eucharist at Dunnegan Park followed by a picnic. Details to follow, but save the date!
