Please sign-up outside the Stowell Lounge and Pastor Nate will contact you during the week to set up a time for a home visit. •All are invited to a gentle Yoga and Christian Meditation class on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to about 8:30. No experience is necessary. A yoga mat or a large towel would be helpful, as we will do some stretching on the floor. •COFFEE HOURS: Volunteers are needed to host coffee hours. It’s fun and easy to sign up. You can go to the Parkside website to see the current schedule and sign up for coffee hour online! This is a great opportunity to try out a new

recipe or bring an old favorite. •Parkside is looking for representatives from the congregation to attend the Synod assembly in Rochester on June 8th and 9th. Speak with Pastor Nate if you are interested. We are grateful to welcome new members into the Parkside Community today: Betty Pilanto, Gigi and Jeff Jankowski. We are so excited to have you join the mission and ministry of our church!

This Easter Season at Parkside we are going to take part in a Resurrection project, working together to see the ways that God uses us to bring new life. This year’s Resurrection Project will be putting together Personal Care Kits as a part of a project facilitated by Lutheran World Relief. Over the next 6 weeks please bring in any of the following items and leave them in the Narthex (there will be a display): --light-weight bath-size towel (maximum 52” X 27”), --bath-size bars (4 to 5 oz.) of soap, any brand, in original wrapping --adult-size toothbrush in its original packaging* --sturdy comb, remove packaging --metal nail clippers (attached file optional), remove packaging --2.65 (the cost to ship one of these care kits to Western Africa) On Pentecost Sunday, after church, we will assemble these kits and send them to Lutheran World Relief who will then send them to those in need around the world. For more information check the bulletin boards!
