This Week April 18 through April 24, 2018

 
In Worship This Week
Easter goes on and on--Alleluia!  Come and celebrate our God who is love and love in action with a special sermon by our own Ted Wimer (certified lay speaker)!
Read 1 John 3:16-24 in anticipation of worship.
 
Name Tags
This Sunday JOY will meet you at the door to assure that you have a current name tag.  If, not, then we'll make one for you!  We want to get in the habit of wearing our name tags so our new Pastor and his family will know who we are.  If you have your name tag at home, we hope that you will remember to wear it on Sunday.  See you then!
 
REEL TO REAL
Join us Tuesday, April 24th for another amazing movie, camaraderie and conversation following.  Movie and time To Be Announced on Facebook!  
 
 
Table Talks
Our denomination has been talking about issues around human sexuality for decades.  As we approach Feb. 2019 (when lasting decisions are expected), we need to talk.  
Jan Nelson, our conference lay leader, wrote in a blog post last week, "The experience will be far more valuable if there is a diversity of opinions represented....  We can’t learn to talk about difficult subjects if everyone starts out in agreement. This event is for YOU, whoever you are and whatever beliefs and experiences you bring. Laity or clergy, old or young, whether you see yourself as a leader or not, there is a place for you at the table."  She continues, "There will be some information about the Commission on the Way Forward and the proposals for reshaping The United Methodist Church, but this is not the major focus of the event. The focus is on the conversation itself."
The closest event is Saturday, April 28 from 1 to 5 p.m. @ Nampa First UMC.

Summer Camp
Summer camp: it's for the young, the not-so-young, and those in between!
The Oregon-Idaho Conference offers summer camps at five locations for disciples of all ages. You can check out the full camp schedule just outside the santuary or online at www.gocamping.org. Need help paying for camp? Financial assistance is available. For more information, contact Melanie Mohling (melsmohl@yahoo.com or 208-412-9899). 
Note: Plans are also underway for a camp-out especially for the Living Hope church family. Watch for information about that event in future weekly reminders.

Trustees Note
With the help of John Lindeman, the Trustees finished the "hole" in the north fence of the parking lot.  Many thanks to John and his construction abilities!
