Maranatha newsletter for the week of April 29

Dear Maranatha friends,

Marita Morgan completed her thought-provoking lesson last Sunday (Thanks, Marita!), and this Sunday Dr. Ruth Weston will begin a two-week series entitled, “Protestant Perspectives on Mary.” You can hear a recording of last Sunday’s lesson at

Rabbi Charles Sherman will teach us on May 20, and we will join Pilgrimage, Journey and the Pastor’s Bible Study Class in the sanctuary. We will not have refreshments or class business that day, just a brief introduction at 9:45 so that Rabbi Sherman can have most of the hour to teach us.


Welcome to our guest, Larkin McCann.

Thanks to Jerry LeDoux for leading us in prayer, and to Barbara Meehan and Mickey and Carol Maus for our snacks. Richard Wansley will have our prayer this Sunday and the Wansleys and Solomons will be our hosts.

Happy birthday to Brenda Worthington, Susie Butterworth and Kirk Place this week!

Mickey Maus announced that the Drillers’ party that was rained out has been rescheduled for Friday, July 6. If you bought that party and are unable to attend, be sure to invite someone else to take your place. Also, don’t discard your old tickets yet – Mickey is checking to see if new ones will be issued.
