Coming Soon—Summer Sunday School

Come along on this Biblically-inspired, Won’t Bend-Won’t Bow-Won’t Burn Babylonian epic, recounting the adventures of Daniel ("Danny," as we call him in our 21st-century version of the story) and his bandmates, The Shacks (better known to you Bible scholars out there as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego!)
In our re-telling of the story, three young Hebrew men named Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in conjunction with the prophet Daniel (of lions’ den fame), have a band
called Danny & the Shacks. They embark on a roller-coaster-thrill-ride of experiences as they encounter King Neb, his golden statue, some crazy Babylonians, the fiery furnace, and of course, the infamous lions’ den.
Through it all, the powerful truth of God’s Word and the importance of being obedient and faithful to His teaching comes through loud and clear in a storyline so fantastic and faith-affirming, it could only come from the Word of God.

Youth/Family News from David Wolfe
Please sign up for the Columbus Clippers Baseball Game on the youth bulletin board for May 6. The cost is $10.00. We will be leaving Good Hope at 12 noon.

VBS Volunteers are Needed!
Vacation Bible School, sponsored by Bucyrus Neighborhood Churches, will be held August 5 – 9, 2018 from 6-8 p.m. Please sign up in the church office by May 6 if you can help.

[There is a volunteer sheet to fill out.]

Come join the Tuesday Morning Bible Study group in the lounge from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. They will be starting a new lesson book: Through the Bible in One Year—Volume III Great Truths of the Bible on April 24. This study contains the great teachings and cardinal truths of God’s Word.

Good Hope Christian Preschool is having a fundraiser at the Galion Pizza Hut on April 24.  See flier for more details.

The Gifts of Hope Committee is offering a college scholarship to Good Hope members during the first four years following high school graduation. Students who enlist in the armed services after high school will be eligible the first four years after the completion of their duty. You must be a full time student to be eligible for this scholarship. Deadline to apply is June 5. The application form may be picked up from the church office.

Altar flowers are needed for April 29. Please sign up on the chart if you would like to honor or remember someone or some special occasion.

What do these two have in common?
The Mother’s Day Bake Sale on May 13!
This “bake” sale (also candy, caramel corn, trail mix, etc. most welcome) will benefit the stained glass window restoration project. Items may be brought to the kitchen on Saturday, May 12, from 9 a.m. to noon or on Sunday morning. The sale will begin after early church and be available throughout the morning.

Ascension Day Service and Meal
Come to the worship service at 7:00 p.m. on Ascension Day Thursday, May 10. WELCA will be serving a meal for donation at 5:30 before the worship service. Please sign a worship registration card or call the church office by Monday, May 7 if you will be attending the meal.

The Goodwill bins will be back on May 1! This is a great way to do spring cleaning and support the preschool at the same time. See flier for more details.

This past Wednesday there were 46 meals served at WOW and 33 attended the prayer service.

Thank you to Joyce Roll, Theresa Yaussy for the meal of tomato soup, grilled cheese sandwiches, salad and dessert.

Addendum for Offering Envelopes
As you reach for an envelope in your quarterly offering envelope packet that says, “Steeple Fund,” consider crossing out “Steeple Fund” and replacing this with “Stained-Glass Window Fund.” Unfortunately, these envelopes are ordered a year in advance. Fortunately, the Steeple Fund is paid off. (Thanks be to God!) Designating your gift to the Stained-Glass Window Fund would help us reach our goal of paying toward restoring the windows.
Thank you! -Pastor Renee

I want to express my sincere appreciation for the many Easter cards and birthday greetings I received in the past few weeks. It was a beautiful blessing to open the mail each day and receive your kind words. Thanks for remembering me! -Jeannette Naufzinger
