*************************COMMUNICATION CORNER*******************                                


Did you know we now have a “Sunday School” that is meeting in Mathews Cottage on Sunday mornings before the adult meeting???  Thanks to Bill Nunan, we now have a program for children.


About our fellowship:  As you know, our membership is high in quality, but limited in quantity.  Please come to Sunday meetings whenever you can.  More is better:  more energy, more ideas, more hugs, more discussion.  Your participation is valued.  Hope to see more of you!


Hurrah, SBUF is growing!  Take time to introduce yourself to Russell Jones.  He visited our fellowship in March  and joined the membership. 


THANKS FOR YOUR HELP  Many of our members contributed to Aids Heartline and Project Needs (service organizations of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, our landlord.)  We donated $445.00 to Project Needs ($990.00 when matched by philanthropist) and $225.00 to Aids Heartline (matched to $450).


IN LOVING MEMORY of Marian Kerr, a grove of five trees will be planted.


Les Berg, our fearless leader is having orthoscopic knee surgery May 18th.
