Thank you to everyone who helped make our 40th Anniversary Relief Sale a success. We had great art and craft items, food items, and enthusiastic volunteers. You can check the Nebraska Relief Sale website to see more figures, such as individual quilts sold. Our MY COINS COUNT added up to: $240.25. That's a lot of coins!  There are still some fridge magnets with the dates of the next 4 years on them if you didn't get one yet.  Check the narthex table. Thank you on behalf of the Nebraska Relief Sale Board.


EXCITING NEWS!  We are within $1000 of being able to pay off our mortgage balance in full.  We have building fund reserves to continue making our mortgage payment for most of this year.  However, as soon as we get in another $1000 of outstanding building pledges we should be able to payoff our balance in full and be completely debt free on our church building! Thank you everyone for your generous pledges as we would not be able to payoff our loan without you.


CONFERENCE PRAYER REQUEST - Pray for Central Plains congregations that are in the midst of pastoral searches. Pray for search committees and for candidates looking for churches, that God may guide the search process according to God's will.
