We didn’t get too many April showers, but we still have plenty of May flowers thanks to all the rain we got earlier in the season! Our Easter services were glorious, as always. Everyone loved having our sweet children sing on Palm Sunday. Ashley and Talin Emmerson did a wonderful job leading them. Thank you to Jim Larson, Geoff Bryan, Austin Granier, Katie Rose Clem, Cadie Carlson, Juliana Ramos, and Devon Fernandez for volunteering as different biblical figures in Children’s Ministries “Journey to Easter” on Palm Sunday. The Maundy Thursday dinner was delicious and we are so appreciative of the Deacons’ hard work in preparing and serving the meal to us. The Cathedral Choir with guest musicians, including Karen and Katie Hayhurst and Joseph and Jamie Mendoes, did a beautiful job leading worship that night, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house after Ashley’s touching message about loneliness and the kindness of special strangers. Our Easter services were full of joy, celebration and new faces, with uplifting music from our Praise Band, Cathedral Choir, 18 guest musicians including strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion, several guest singers and our Cathedral Bells. It was a jubilant culmination to a very holy week. Thank you to everyone who donated items and complete kits for the Refugee Welcome Kits that will be distributed through World Relief. Please be praying for all displaced families around the world. The Cruisers hosted a fun Civil War music event last month at their meeting. The Foothill Armory Brass Band, featuring Noel Collins and Alex Waggoner, played music from the era and wore uniforms of both the Union and Confederate Armies. Jim Yukl did a great job delivering the Gettysburg Address – there is no finer Abe Lincoln around! Ashley was thrilled to hand out inscribed Bibles to seven 2nd graders a couple weeks ago. Please pray for the Word to speak to them as they grow. Registration for summer camps (including VBS) is officially open now for Children’s and Youth Ministries!  Summer is just around the corner, and if you know anyone looking for a great summer day camp program, we’ve got just the place! CFC’s program is the most flexible one in town, and it’s the most fun too!  See you next month! Be sure to check out my full report in this month’s messenger here on the website!
