Thank You

Thank You to Beulah’s Master Woodworker Dave Gould for making ten Jesus crosses. They were in the windows of the Sanctuary during Lent. They were also used on the tables in the Fellowship Hall for the Lenten luncheons and dinners. We will appreciate Dave’s beautiful handiwork for years to come.

The newletter also contains the monthly lectionary readings and the prayer list.

Thought for the day:

We thank you, O God, that you have given us new life and freedom in Jesus Christ. Our faith and our hope are in you. Since our earthly lives pass like the flowers of the field, which bloom today and fade tomorow, we want to be rooted securely in your eternal love. Be known to us as we live from day to day, through the grace of Jesus Christ. Amen
