Sunday, April 30, is "Fifth Sunday." Richard Cravy is taking a break this weekend so Don Belk and Mark Ruckman will be speaking at the morning and evening services.
Congratulations to Stacy, Mark and Travis Ruckman on the arrival of Sierra Jean. Sierra was born March 1, weighing 7 lbs. 2 oz. All the family is doing fine. Sierra attended her first church service on Sunday, March 5, and was the center of attention.
On Sunday, March 5, we will have a special Missions Contribution to help Rob, Denyce and Malachi Hindman make a "fact-finding" trip to Moscow, Russia this summer. Moscow is a city of 13,000,000 people with only three small congregations of the churches of Christ. God has already done the unimaginable in opening the Iron Curtain; we can help see that the opportunity to preach the gospel there is not neglected. To read more about why we should care about supporting missions, CLICK HERE. You can learn more about the Hindmans by going to their website: www.robhindman.com. Rob served 18 months as a missions worker in Samoa, and Denyce was in Moscow for almost two years. You can learn more about the special contribution by calling the church office or speaking with our elders.

Many of us want to know what we can do to help in the wake of Hurricane Katrina’s devastation. We have a unique opportunity in churches of Christ to help through organizations that represent our interests and values as they carry supplies and help into these areas. Go to this website maintained by the Christian Chronicle newspaper to learn more about their efforts: Hurricane Relief Effort Ministries. On the Christian Chronicle website we can also keep up with churches and members who were devastated and efforts to help them.
