Hear This Good News!
Our Easter Offering this year will be divided between two charities, CASA of Camden County and Wesley Glenn Ministries. CASA (Camden County Court Appointed Special Advocates) has a goal of providing a trained advocate for 100 percent of the children in Camden County who are or will become entangled in the juvenile justice and foster care systems because they are victims of abuse, neglect or abandonment. These volunteers "speak" for the best interest of these children who are involved in juvenile court proceedings. The Wesley Glen Ministries, a ministry of the South Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church, serve adults with developmental disabilities with the goal of providing services, in a Christian atmosphere, that improve the quality of life for individuals and their families. It owns and maintains group homes and apartments throughout the conference area, including a home in St. Marys. Its St. Marys residents are also provided with programs and services such as supported employment. Please give generously so we can help these worthy causes!
"The Last Supper, Crucifixion& Resurrection" (DVD) is available in the Family Resource Center. Look for other Easter materials on the shelves to the left of the door under the bulletin board in the library. Adam Hamilton’s "24 Hours that Changed the World" is about the last day of Jesus’ life. It also challenges us to think what would we have done if we had been Mary or Peter or a soldier or any of the others in the cast. Could I stand up to the Sanhedrin? Don’t be too hasty in your reply. Helen Haidle’s "He is Alive" is a beautiful story for children or, on the lighter side, "My Easter Basket." After making your selection, print your name and phone number on the card and leave it in the file on the card table. If you need assistance, please contact Kathryn Wyler at 330-546-6955.
