It’s true! The humble, underappreciated lima bean has a holiday all of its own. This coming Friday is Lima Bean Respect Day. You can read about this obscure holiday and fun facts about the lima bean HERE.
Coming events at the church…sadly–or perhaps thankfully, depending on how you were raised–none of these will feature lima beans…
Heartland Prom/Afterprom (Saturday, April 28th): Prom and afterprom registration will close this coming Sunday, April 22nd. No registrations will be accepted at the door. Click here to register. Cost is $60 per person for both prom and afterprom, or $20 for afterprom-only.
Congregational Devoational (Friday, May 4th, 7pm): Please save the date! All members are encouraged to attend our quarterly “family time”. Childcare will be provided.
Missions Sunday (Sunday, May 20th): Our annual contribution for our sister churches in Russia will be collected about one month from now. The goal is $75,000; you can give earlier if you want to. Select “Missions” from the fund options for giving online. Checks should have “Eurasian Missions” written in the memo line.
Heartland Youth Camp (June 10-16), Heartland Kids Kamp (June 19-23): Early Bird registration continues through the end of this month. For information and registration forms for both camps, go to camp.gatewaycitychurch.info.
One last thing…
We are working to repair some plumbing issues affecting the sanctuary area of the church. For this coming Sunday (and possibly next couple after that), the bathrooms off the sanctuary will be closed. The upstairs bathrooms are still available. Additionally, use of the baptistry will be limited. Please reply to this email if you have questions.
Thanks all! See you this weekend.
