BIG ASK – God Welcomes AllWhile I am on sabbatical in May and July,  it would be really nice to have different families sing god welcomes all ( in whatever key works for you).  So you need to record and upload and soon would be great.  

I know I ask a lot from you all and I truly do appreciate it.  Thank you in advance!!!!  

Please let Lyn in the office know when you have uploaded your video at nyarmouthccucc@gmail.com or 829-3644.

Thank you, Pastor Nancy

Looking for Readers
As Nancy is on sabbatical from May 3 thru may 30, we are making a schedule of readers for those Sunday’s.  As usual we will have a call to worship (more than one reader in household is best, but one will work) and scripture.  We have filled in a few spaces.  The dates are posted below.

May 9 – Jeanne C.   Jeff S.     (FULL)
May 16 – Gail S.   Peter D.   (FULL)
May 23 –   Sharon C.           (Need 1)
May 30 –                                  (Need 2)

Please let Lyn know if you are willing and available nyarmouthccucc@gmail.com.  Lyn can help with recording if needed.  As usual it needs to be done by Wednesday of the week before.
