Dear Riviera Family,
The Easter Lilies and their powerful scent are now out of the church, but the Easter Message of hope still fills the air. The Sundays of May are the Sundays of Easter and the four Sundays before we start our 2019 Summer Series at Riviera which are always fun.
Each Sunday in May is a Celebration. Not just of Easter, but of other events in the life of our church and its members. The First Sunday we will Celebrate Earth Day and are so happy that Janet and Annie Peterson will give a presentation about sustainable eating and living. As an Earth Care Congregation, we care about God’s good creation and realize our responsibility to care and be stewards of this lovely blue planet called earth. The other Sundays include a congregational meeting to vote in Elders for vacant unexpired terms, a Mother’s/Parents Day Ice Cream Social with Mimosas, the Installation of New Officers, a clarity of Identity conversation, and a meditation given by Elder Michele Ready.
And because we are a church family, we will also keep our members who are on our prayer list close to our hearts. As we enter the month of May, we are aware the Chuck Hannemann will still be in radiation and chemo therapies throughout the month and that Vivian German will still be in Arizona healing from surgeries to her broken foot and leg. Both the Hannemann family and the German families need our prayers for total healing and recoveries.
In Christ and in Love,
