Happy Mothers Day!!
Its that one day of the year that Hallmark cards and the flower shops absolutely love…it’s Mothers Day.
Here are a couple of fun facts about this very special day.
1. Mothers Day is the third most popular holiday, behind only Christmas and Easter.
2. More phone calls are made on Mothers Day than any other day.
3. Women purchase 80% of Mothers Day Cards (Cheryl are you reading this?)
4. In what was formerly Yugoslavia, children would tie up their mother on Mothers Day. The only way that she could be freed would be to “pay” her children with candy and treats!
5. Many of the trademark sweaters that Mr Rodgers wore on his television show, were knitted by his real mother.
By the list above it reminds us that mom’s are pretty special (although I wouldn’t suggest the fourth one!!)
This Sunday, Cheryl will be sharing at church and she is going to have a panel with Thresa Mondhe and Jane Valcourt.
We want to honor the mothers, and in fact all of the women at Alderbrook Church. We appreciate all of you so much!!
Also, the ACC Youth are getting ready to attend Historymakers Conference at the end off the month. They have a final fundraiser…a bake sale this Sunday right after church.
So, if you get your mom a card and some flowers, the youth have some baking that you can surprise Mom (just helping you look good in front of Mom).
We look forward to seeing you in church on Sunday,
Pastor Glenn and Cheryl
May 12th: Cheryl will be sharing along with Tresa and Marla.

Sundays at Kidzone
This week in Kidzone we continued to learn more about the Lord’s Prayer. The verse was “This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed he your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today, our daily bread” Matthew 6:9-11 This weeks main focus was about how God can provide for all of our needs and all we have to do is ask him.
