This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday. Larry will be leading worship once again.
The Scripture readings are Ezekiel 37:1-14 and Acts 2:1-21. Larry has chosen “Who has seen the wind?” for the title of his talk in the Time for All Ages and the title of the Sermon is “Can these bones live?
Ladies Group Supper and Meeting - The Spirit West Ladies Group will be having their annual meeting and Potluck Dinner on June 4th at 6pm in the lower hall.

the stations of the RESURRECTION Bible Study – Wednesdays at 2:00 pm
We are continuing the Easter Bible Study. Using the book the stations of the RESURRECTION, written by a Methodist minister from London, we will reflect on eight Gospel stories of encounters with the Risen Christ, from the empty tomb to the ascension. Our next session will be on Wednesday, May 23. If you have not signed up, but would like to participate, just show up.
Garage Sale – June 14 & 15 – While you are spring cleaning, please save household goods, toys, books, tools, etc. for our Annual Garage Sale. Donations will be accepted at the church starting June 1. The income from the sale of donated items goes to the church. You can also rent a table for your own sales, with the rental fee going to the church. Call the church office for information.
Outreach at Spirit West
Seasonal items are now being collected for the Jasper Place Wellness Center and the Bissell Center - hats / sunscreen / bug spray / refillable water bottles / sun glasses. These can be left at the giving tree for distribution.
A NEW WAY TO CONTRIBUTE FINANCIALLY
You don’t have offering envelopes, you are not on PAR, and you don’t get to church as often as you would like, but you want to make a financial contribution to work of Spirit West, and receive a tax receipt. Now you can! Check out the online donation option on our website spiritwest.org and click on the Donate tab in the navigation bar. It was suggested at a Board Meeting that everyone give the donate button a try (just to make sure it works, of course)
Security Access codes
The church access code for the alarm system has been changed. Each of our renters will have their own code. Members of the Spirit West congregation who have a key to the church (choir, Ladies’ Group, Men’s Breakfast etc.) need to see Norma or Larry to get the new code. You don’t want to set the alarm off, by using an outdated code.
There is now a Spirit West Prayer Circle. We gather at the church on Thursday mornings at 10:30. We share a reading, share our stories or concerns, and pray. There is no “sign-up” for this, just come as you feel the need. If you are interested, join us on Thursdays.
RIDE TO CHURCH?
From time to time we encounter people who would like to come to church at Spirit West, but are unable to because they do not have means of transportation. Can you give a ride?

Would you like to come to church at Spirit West, but are unable to because you have no ride, please call the church office. (780-481-1406)
