Dialogue & Doctrine – Our new small group meets on Tuesday nights from 6-7PM.  For our first study we have decided to do an overview of the Psalms as the Old Testament prayer book, while looking at several Psalms in particular to go more in depth. If you’re interested but aren’t able to make it to every meeting, that’s okay! The plans are to keep this group going for however long people are interested, studying a variety of topics and using a variety of tools as we go. I will try to announce when we start a new study. Stop by to join the conversation!

Special Request: If you leave something on the desk in the office please leave a note with it.  Several things have been left and we do not know what they are for or who they are from.  Thank you.

Women’s Bible Study
Marie would like everyone to join her on April 28, at 3:00 P.M. for the kick-off of a new women’s Bible study. We will be using “Altogether Beautiful” by Heidi Goehmann, a video-based study on the Song of Songs that explores what it means to be loved fiercely and called beautiful by the God of the universe. Whether you’re married or single, young or old, you will find truth and comfort in the Song of Songs because this song, ultimately, is about the fierce love God has for you, His bride, whom He declares altogether beautiful.
They will be meeting once every month, and if you have questions, please see Marie Roth.

CHURCH SECURITY: Due to an incident with a stranger in our building. Some of our members saw him in the building, and then later found him hiding in the women’s restroom in the basement. Upon hearing his description it seems that it might be the same individual that I (pastor) had an incident,someone walked in to the building but promptly walked out when he realized I was there.
On account of these incidents, and some other things we have noticed (the soda money going missing sometime within the last week or two, a beer can having been left in a Sunday School classroom trashcan, etc.), the elders and I have now had a  discussion on church security policies and practices. We will also have a discussion about security policies and practices at our voters’ meeting.
For now, please take note of the following actions that are going to be implemented immediately:
We are going to be keeping the church doors locked, even during the day. If you do not have a key and need to get into the building, please call ahead to the church office before you arrive to make sure that someone is there to let you in. Once you arrive, please ring the doorbell at the east entrance to the narthex. If it is during a time when the office is closed or no one is there, please make arrangements with the trustees or someone else who has a key before you need to be in the building, or please check out a key from Carman and return it to her after you are done with it.
2.  If you unlocked a door, please be sure that you lock it *and that it is latched* when you leave. Do not assume that someone else will lock it for you, and do not assume that it will latch by itself when you leave. This *includes* on Sunday mornings. This has especially been a problem in the Narthex. All doors can be unlocked from both the inside and outside, and they need to be checked twice (once outside and once inside) in order to ensure they are actually locked. If you unlock both the inside and outside of a door but only lock one side when you leave, then the doors can still be opened. They do not stay locked on the outside or automatically lock on the outside. The best practice is that soon as you unlock a door from the outside, you immediately lock it from the outside and then unlock it from the inside. The doors also need to be pushed closed when you leave and checked to make sure they latch.

Thank you! Together, we can make sure this problem is addressed.

Youth Group
