Youth Group Bake Sale  Next Sunday, May 13 (Mother’s Day), during coffee hour, indulge yourself and your Mother with goodies lovingly made by our youth (or their mothers?!)

Pastor’s Pub Chat  Come spend an evening with Pastor Bo, some of the finest people to ever walk the earth, and a good brewski.  Our topic this month can be found here.  We meet at The Lodge at Cascade Brewing at 7424 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy.  All are welcome; no RSVP needed.

Upcoming Scrip Sundays are May 20th and June 10th.   This church fundraiser does not cost you anything!  Scrip is purchased at the value of the gift card, and the church receives the percentage listed on the form.  Consider ordering cards for graduation gifts, summer travel, and the essentials you buy everyday.

Prayer Chain  Please email your prayer requests to If you do not have access to email, you may call Linda Miller at 503.929.6696 .  The ‘Prayers of the People’ is crafted each week from this information. 

Emergency Contact and Volunteer Skills Inventory  The Connexions Team is gathering   information all about you! Please take the time to tell us how we can help you in an emergency, and how you can help your church family.  Forms are available on the Welcome table.

Progressive Bible Study  This isn’t your father’s bible study!  You may have read the gospel of Mark several times but this hour will open you up to something new and thought-provoking.  Every Wednesday night at 7pm in the Fireside Room.  Join us and explore the Bible. It might look very different than it did before.
