Worship schedule. This Sunday, May 19, is the last day of Sunday School and two worship services for a while. Our summer worship schedule begins Memorial Day weekend on Sunday, May 26, with one service at 10:00 a.m. The summer schedule runs through Labor Day. We return to two services and Sunday School resumes on Sunday, September 8.
Time and Talent forms for 2019 were collected this past Sunday. Each member (including children) is asked to complete the new 2019 form indicating how you wish to serve in the upcoming year. You can still turn in your form next week, or you can  fill the form out online right now at
Feed Our Kids is a program of GRACE which provides lunches for area children from low-income families who qualify for free or reduced lunches at school and depend on GRACE for lunches in the summer when school is out. This year Abiding Grace will again provide more than 1,000 lunches over two weeks: June 3-7, led by Pete Etheredge, and June 17-21, led by Lori Anderson. Members can help by preparing and serving lunches and/or providing baked goods for the lunches. There are sign-up sheets now available at the Outreach kiosk. For more information, see Lori Anderson or Pete Etheredge.
Bible Challenge. Members of Abiding Grace are reading the entire New Testament this week! (Well, 31 members are each reading a section.) They will be reporting back on what they learned about God through this experience. If you'd like to participate, pick a book of the Bible and start reading!
Last Sunday the Grace Notes led worship with hand bells and hand chimes. The hand chimes were donated by Becky Mishoe in memory of Wayne, and the Mishoe family was present as the hand chimes were dedicated.
Nominees for Church Council. We will be electing new Council members at our congregational meeting on June 16. If you would like to be nominated to serve on the Church Council, please contact a member of the Nominating Committee: Kenn Mingus, Chad Nelson, John Nelson, or Pastor Nick. You can also indicate your interest on the Time and Talent form.
Transitional Housing update. A potential client for the transitional apartment we are outfitting may require a toddler bed and microwave oven. If you could provide either of these items, please contact Kim Haggerty. Thank you.
