computer skills and would be willing to do so, contact Karen Cather so we can help you get set up. It would be nice if you could start before Judy leaves so she can show you what she has done. May God bless you this month and I hope you don’t get too tired during May. Your Pastor,

2012 is speeding down the track. If history reTerry McGuire peats itself, May will be a blurred memory even before it starts. We begin the month on a sad note. We will be saying goodbye and God's speed to Judy and Sam Beam. They are moving to Idaho so they can be closer to their family. We are having a farewell dinner for them on Sunday May the 6th. The dinner will be pot luck following the church service. We hope they will be happy in their new home and spoil their grandchildren as is the right of all grandparents. We also will be having the usual events of Mother's Day, Graduation Day and Memorial Weekend. I have asked, and Mike has graciously consented, to fill in for me on Mother's Day. Linda and I are taking a one week vacation from May 814. Mike has never preached a Mother's Day sermon and said he is looking forward to the opportunity. I have one other announcement concerning May.

There are very few schools that still have any kind of service like this for their students. It is very important for us to encourage students and others to support these services because they are so rare. Please attend the Baccalaureate to support the administration's willingness to allow this event. May is always a month of new beginning. With Judy leaving we are reminded that we need someone to take over her work of entering the songs, announcements and other things to computer for our worship service. If you have these kinds of
