From there the event moves down the street on McCulloch with a prayer walk. The staging area will be the green space at Springberg-McAndrew Park at the corner of Querio Dr. There will be a series of prayer stations all along McCulloch, all the way down to London Bridge. We are looking for folks to host a prayer station, pass out donuts/water/ coffee and others to hand out water or refill water. And of course, the most important thing of all, join the many others who will be walking the prayer route and praying for our community, our nation and the world. We will be providing a van at London Bridge to transport people back up to the park, where there will be pop-up tents from various churches and Hilltop Community Church will be serving Hot Dogs and other snacks for participants and passers-by to enjoy. On Saturday, May 5, I will be offering a first communion instruction class for those desiring to receive communion. Usually this class is for third grade students and older. We’ll get started at 9:00 am. The class participants will receive communion at the 10:00am worship on May 6. Also, on May 6, Mount Olive will have it’s SemiAnnual meeting, immediately following the 10:00 am worship. The meeting will be held in the Worship Center. This is the meeting when we traditionally review reports from various boards and committees, and we also elect new Council members as well as vote in representatives for the Planned Giving and Endowment Board.
Kim and I will be on a short mini-vacation, from May 25-May 30. I have a niece who is getting married back in South Dakota. Rev. Jack Williams (former interim) will be with the congregation to lead worship and bring the word on the 26 and 27. Welcome him back with open arms and gracious hospitality. Mark your calendar for Monday, May 28, and come out for the Memorial Day Luncheon from 11:00am till 1:00pm. A time of fellowship and good food. Always a fun event. So sorry Kim and I will not be here to celebrate with you. We are blessed for the journey with Christ!
