"Religion is at its best when it makes us ask hard questions of ourselves.  It is at its worst when it deludes us into thinking we have all the answers for everybody else."   -Archibald Macleish
Construction begins this week on the Children's Ministry Classrooms, Women's Restroom and Lower Level Corridor.  Access through the lower level corridor from both ends will only be open during the evenings, Saturdays and Sundays.  The Women's restroom will be closed due to renovations.  During weekday office hours we ask that you use the main floor corridor to traverse that end of the building. 
We will have our last meeting before taking off for the summer on Wednesday, May 11.  Come, hear, and learn more about the Zika virus and how it may impact our lives and our communities in the future.  Our presenter is Dr. Joanna Gaines, Ph.D., Senior Epidemiologist, US Public Health Service at the CDC. Dr. Gaines will repeat a presentation that she did recently at a national conference entitled, "What We Know, and What Faith and Community Organizations Should Know, about Zika."  Please rsvp to rsbrownlee1046@att.net so we can get a count for food.
Sunday, May 1st, will be Pick-a-Pan Sunday.  There will be foil pans and instructions in the narthex for those who wish to help the thirty men of Journey shelter on Sunday, May 8th.  We need two volunteers to bring a main dish for 15, two for a vegetable or side dish for 15, two for salad and bread for 30, one to bring dessert for 30, one to bring drinks for 30, and two volunteers to serve.
On Sunday, May 1, all Fourth and Fifth Grade students will have the opportunity to participate in Bible Sunday.  MPC Children's Ministry wants every child to have their own Bible, and we want to make sure that every child who walks through our doors has the opportunity to learn and discover the wonderful messages from God that we find in the Bible.  During the 11 a.m. worship service, the Fourth and Fifth Graders will receive their Bibles as a gift from the congregation.
