Friday Fives

1. Sunday Worship - With Lent behind us and Easter within us it is a natural time to turn our attention to how that journey will impact each of us. Over the last several weeks we have turned our attention to the gifts God has placed in our care as we looked at how we are called to use them. I hope and pray that as we have looked to the way of caring for this creation and using what God has given us wisely each of you have come away with a new perspective and are re-energized to continue your walk with Christ. We will wrap up this series this week as we look to the authority of our lives; who has it and who we listen to as we walk our journey. Invite a friend and I hope to see you all there!

2. Stop Hunger Now - As a response to us meeting our Advent Conspiracy Challenge in 2014 we are going to participate with Stop Hunger Now and hold a meal packaging event here at Druid Hills. We have set up Saturday, June 6th, from 9am-12pm as our time and day for this event. We will circulate signup sheets soon for you to register and claim your spot. We will package around 10,000 meals for starving children around the world and we need your help to make this happen. Besides, it is a whole lot of fun! Be on the look out for the sign up sheets and get involved!

3. FAD Night - FAD (Faith and Discipleship) Night has wrapped up for the Spring. We hope you have enjoyed the opportunity to gather, share a meal, and deepen your walk with Christ. Stay tuned for the date when we will start this ministry up again after the summer. Thanks to all who invested in this ministry and for all who came to make it a reality!

4. Lion's Club Garage Sale - Tomorrow, Saturday, May 2nd, the Fort King Lion's Club will be using the church parking lot to host their Spring Yard Sale to benefit the Florida Center for the Blind. I want to invite and encourage you to grab a friend and come on out and support this event. There are so many that will benefit from happens this day and from the mission of the Lion's Club. Come and be a part of it!

5. Liturgist and Usher Trainings - There will be two upcoming training sessions for all those interested in serving as a liturgist and/or usher in worship. These sessions will be brief and held immediately after worship. The intent of these trainings will be to allow new people to participate and make sure we all understand the best practices of what is needed for these roles. The liturgist training will be May 17th and the usher training will be May 24th. I hope you see you there!

Bonus Five - Welcome Pastor Brian and Family! - This past Sunday it was announced that I will be moving in July and my time as pastor at Druid Hills will be coming to an end. So with that I am excited to introduce to you our new pastor and his family; Brian Sanderson and his wife Faith, son Bryce, and daughter Abbey.

Please keep them in prayer as they make the transition of saying goodbye to the church they serve now and prepare themselves for ministry with you. I also want to invite you to reach out to them and welcome them into the Druid Hills family. I am excited for how the Holy Spirit will work through Brian to lead this congregation as well as for the opportunity you all will have to get to know his family.

Have a great weekend and I will see you Sunday!
