HEART'S DESIRE:  After 18 years of blessing women on the Mission field, we are going to do something crazy!!!  We are going to bless a man!!  We will be collecting the next several months to give something really great to Nahari Thorat.  Donations can be made at the Connections Table.

CHURCH PRAYER:  We are going to be praying for our country today at the end of the service.  Join your faith together with other believers for the future of this country.

A HIGHER STANDARD WOMEN'S MINISTRY:  Ladies, let's live a higher standard, let's live the way the Bible tells us to live.  We're here to help!  A Higher Standard Women's Ministry will encourage you to live up to God's standards.  You will have a great time and meet ladies who want to live up to God's standards also.  Join us on Wednesday, May 4 at 6:30 P.M. 

STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL: Ladies!  Our next A Higher Standard at Work will be on June 4, from 11:45-3, at the Missouri Baptist Children's Home's Strawberry Festival Fundraiser.  This event is held at the First Baptist Church of Arnold.  We will be assisting with the quilt auction.  The funds from this event help to minister to many young women and babies.  Sign up at the Connections Table to help.

anti-GRAVITY:  If you're a teenager between the grades of 7-12, be sure to be at anti-Gravity Youth, this Wednesday, at 6:30-8:30 PM!

RIDES NEEDED:  There are several people in need of rides to church on Sunday mornings.  If you can help, see Dale Francis or call the church office.

FINDING YOUR PLACE:  There are several opportunities for you to get involved in the ministries of Summit Church.  The Children's Ministry and Nursery are looking for several workers. There are also opportunities to serve in the Helps Ministry and Worship Team.  Stop by the Connections Table today and get started!

SHARING JESUS:  We are sharing the gospel through the passing out of tracts.  Pray over your tracts!  Pray that God will direct you to the right people to give them to. Continue to pray for boldness and the direction of the Holy Spirit as you share Christ.    "Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold." 2 Cor 3:12-13  NIV

ADOPT AN ISLAND:  Adopt-an-Island is a volunteer program that helps with the maintenance of the landscaping areas of the church grounds, mainly weeding.  Volunteers choose an area and commit to keep the area weeded weekly throughout the growing season.  This program does not require you to purchase anything.  Commitments can also be made for shorter periods of time or to help when someone goes on vacation. We need lots of helpers!  See Pastor Diane if you are interested.

American Presidential quotes:
"It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible." 
~ George Washington

"We recognize no sovereign but God, and no King but Jesus!"  ~ John Adams

"The reason that Christianity is the best friend of government is because Christianity is the only religion that changes the heart."  ~ Thomas Jefferson

"We have staked the whole future of American civilization not on the power of government, far from it. We have staked the whole of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves according to the commandments of God. The future and success of America is not in this Constitution, but in the laws of God upon which this Constitution is founded."  ~ James Madison

"Before any man can be considered as a member of civil society, he must be considered as a subject of the Governor of the Universe. And to the same Divine Author of every good and perfect gift we are indebted for all those privileges and advantages, religious as well as civil, which are so richly enjoyed in this favored land."  ~ James Monroe

"The Bible is the first and almost the only book deserving of universal attention." ~ John Quincy Adams

 "We have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand, which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us."
~ Abraham Lincoln
