EASTER BASKET THANKS
Thank you so much for your very generous contributions to the Easter Basket project! We filled 15 baskets with candy, toys, and books for MATS and SFTS. And we provided lots of candy and empty plastic eggs so that the moms at New Life Home can make baskets or have egg hunts for their children. We pray that these gifts will bring joy to these families and that they will know God’s love through our actions.
NEW HIRE – WELCOME
The church has just hired Ian Melewski as part-time technical assistant to help Hiel Lindquist with the production and live-streaming of church services. Ian will be filling in while Hiel and Susan take a well-earned break starting mid-April. He will be on call for occasional work thereafter.
Ian is a senior at Franklin Pierce who’s about to finish a degree in Sports Media. He has extensive experience in videography and live-streaming at Franklin Pierce and on other assignments.
Please welcome Ian when your path crosses his at church.
