Some of you may listen to Daily Audio Bible‘s podcasts. Our Music Director, Scott, has been a fan for a while. Earlier this year, he contacted Brian Hardin, who founded DAB, about hosting an event here a Randolph Heights. They worked out a schedule, and set one up for this weekend.
Saturday evening at 7:00 we’ll have the first event, a Daily Audio Bible Family Gathering, webcast live from our church to the DAB community throughout the world. Come and visit us if your curious as to what it’s all about.
Then, on Sunday, Brian will be the guest preacher at our regular 10:30 AM worship service.
This should be a compelling vision of “living as if the Bible were true.” Come and join us!

Obviously, the idea of a clean-up day generated an overwhelming amount of excitement, so we decided to change it to a day when more people could come. Well, maybe that’s not exactly how it worked, but we are changing the date so more people can be there.
For now, though, the most important thing is that it’s not going to be this Saturday, the 27th.
We’ll post the new date as soon as we’ve picked it.
The wait is over! It’s going to be Saturday, May 4th, from 9:00 AM until about 3:00. Come for as much or as little as possible. There’s a rumor that there may be treats involved, too, but I cannot confirm that.

Basking in the afterglow of Easter’s celebration of the Resurrection, with a wonderful turnout for our tradition of flowering the cross, it’s easy to forget about upcoming events. In the coming month we have:
- Rev. Carl Grosse with us again on Sunday the 7th to offer a sermon (Tangible Evidence) and serve communion.
- A sermon series by Ken Highley on the Prodigal God beginning on April 14th and finishing out the month (more from Ken on this later).
- An exciting clean-up day (woo-hoo!) on the 27th.
- A visit to Feed My Starving Children on May 3rd with our brothers and sisters from Glorious Triumphant Church.
And I don’t want to overlook our regularly scheduled programming on Wednesdays:
- Our 7AM Men’s Lectionary Breakfast at the Caribou on Snelling south of Grand (not really a breakfast nor confined to the lectionary, but definitely worth it!)
- Our 6:30PM Prayer Group
- Rehearsals for our Bell (6:15) and Vocal (7:15) choirs
All in all, it should be a good month as we continue the season of Eastertide!

Lent. What is it all about anyway? Giving up a bad habit for 40 days? A good excuse for losing weight before Spring? It is even something Presbyterians recognize? Here’s what our denominational website has to say, ”The season of Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and self-examination in preparation for the celebration of the resurrection of the Lord at Easter. It is a period of 40 days – like the flood of Genesis, Moses’ sojourn at Mount Sinai, Elijah’s journey to Mount Horeb, Jonah’s call to Ninevah to repent and Jesus’ time of testing in the wilderness.” Continue reading »

For Lent this year, Mary Englund will lead a study based on the book Finding Life: a Journey Through 1 John by Peter John Schrock. Beginning at 6:00 PM on Ash Wednesday, we’ll have a simple meal and fellowship, followed by the study and discussion at 6:30. It promises to be an interesting exploration of what it means to find true life.
Everyone is welcome, and, as is usually the case, no homework is required!
