The arrival of April was a bit of a fool’s day since we were not sure what Mother Nature had in store from day to day, and hour to hour!
But the early flowers and joyous warmth of Easter day was real and gave everyone a spiritual boost and true taste of nature coming alive in trees and flowers. Grass mowing was underway all week.
A couple of special days are coming in April at the United Methodist Church. Pastor Carol Duffield is leading a Bible study this month A timely subject, Christianity and World Religions, will begin on Wednesday evenings at the church. The study begins at 6 p.m. on April 13. If you are interested in learning and sharing in this study, contact Pastor Carol at 614-551-4815 so materials will be adequate. It is based on material from Adam Hamilton’s presentation. You are welcome.
The church is also sponsoring a chicken pot pie supper on April 16. Serving will begin at 4:30 and will include homemade chicken potpie and mashed potatoes. Plenty of homemade desserts will be offered. The public is invited. A free will offering will be taken.
