May 10, THIS SUNDAY A SPECIAL “FLASH MOB PRAYER” ~ After worship on Sunday, we will meet in the OLD High School (what will next year be the Middle School). There we’ll not only pray for the students and teachers and parents but we’ll ALSO pray for our three amazing seniors: Julian Anaya, Landry Deaton and Grant Newton! We’ll then carpool to the NEW high school where Erika Deaton will unlock the entrance for us so we can enter the NEW high and pray for the people.
NEED A TACTILE PRAYER TOOL? People use prayer beads to stay centered on repetitive prayers or to help keep track of prayers with a minimal amount of conscious effort, which in turn allows greater attention to be paid to the prayers themselves. Carla Chitsey made some prayer beads, already sanitized and ready to be held. If you would like a set, let me know. 
RE-OPENING ~ Slowly and safely. We’re all excited to be hoping and dreaming about a NEW tomorrow! Some of the quilters were back today and even with three here (we’re saving a space for Marine to be back!), it felt so wonderful to have PEOPLE at the church! I’ve attached the guidelines for Phase 1 through June 7. If anyone wants to reserve space for YOUR Sunday school class (which doesn’t have to be Sunday!) or any other FUMC small group, please contact Deanna in the office to reserve your space. Deanna works Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday from 8am – 2:30pm.  (ATTACHED DETAILS.)
SUNDAY, May 31, before 9 am ~ ALL CHURCH WELCOME BACK outdoors at the Ragsdale’s Home! You can sit in your car with your windows open or bring a lawn chair and sit outside. But we can all be TOGETHER! Details coming …
SUNDAY, June 7, BACK IN THE SANCTUARY ~We’re still making plans for whether we’ll be having one service or two. According to the survey, 70% of you plan to come back when it’s safe but as we get closer we’ll check in with you to get specific commitments from everyone. We want to be sure there’s a space for everyone!
LISTEN TO TODAY’S TUESDAY DEVOTIONAL or SUNDAY’S SERMONS … find all the sermons and devotionals on the website … Tuesday’s devotional was a look at HOPE vs. OPTIMISM
May 11, MONDAY DRIVE THROUGH ~ 1-2 pm … I LOVE seeing you all!
