Greetings on this wonderful spring day. Yes, I said spring. Sometimes it's hard for this Kansas boy to believe that it can snow in April, but it wasn't a bad storm and it was over soon. Reports say that it's supposed to be in the 70's this week. Just my luck! As you read these words I'm in New Philadelphia, Ohio (God willing) speaking at the Church of the Nazarene that's pastored by a friend of mine. In my place this morning you will have the opportunity to hear Rev. H.B. London. Rev. London is an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene and currently serves as Vice President of Ministry Outreach/Pastoral Ministries for Focus on the Family. Dr. London is a friend of DFC and has spoken for us on many occasions. I know that you will appreciate his message today. For my friends who attend the Traditions service on Sunday night, you will be pleased to know that Rev. Stephen Abbott will be speaking in that service. Don't miss it. If you are one who reads the information in this newsletter about giving, you will notice that our Easter Offering for others has reached the $112,000 mark. What a blessing it would be if we would work together to push that number over the top of our goal of $150,000. Our church year (fiscal year) ends on May 31st. At that time, all the books close on the year. Let's make a concerted effort to close the year out strong. Won't you help? Let's do it. Anticipating,

I have made a decision to:
