Spring schedule and Attendance
-- Now that we are into the Easter season, the Wednesday evening Bible study has resumed (7-8:30 PM); confirmation classes continue and the First Communion class begins this week for three students.  Sunday morning attendance is improving as more and more of us reach that "two weeks after being fully vaccinated" status.
   Going forward, each of you will need to assess the risk/reward of returning to in-person worship, considering your own vaccination status and personal risk situations. We look forward to the day we can move the chairs closer together so we can "fill the place up!"  He is Risen -- He is risen indeed!

Got Graduates? So that I don't miss any -- if you are or have a student that will graduate from High School or college in 2021, please clue me in ... we like to give a mention to recognize them, and share what they plan to do next.   HS grads are eligible for a scholarship from Living Word if they will be attending 'full time' college or trade school in their next phase of education.  Contact Debbie for application forms (or just reply to this email) -- not too soon to plan for 2021.
Agnus Day.........................."Agnus Day appears with the permission of  www. agnusday. org"

Attendance -- last Sunday, April 18, 2021:  46
