    ITEMS OF PRAYER AND PRAISE

   Please continue to pray for Roger Reitsma as he has been moved to a rehab facility for therapy. He is now at the Good Samaritan Focused 

 Rehab, 3901 South 46th St., Sioux Falls, SD.
    We remember all of our members who reside at area care facilities. Chris Sankey who resides at Edgebrook Care Center, Dick Talsma 

 who resides at Edgebrook’s Assisted Living, Gert Krosschell who resides at Edgebrook Apartments and Geneva Peters who resides 

 at the Pipestone Good Samaritan Care Facility.

   ANNOUNCEMENTS:   
    We are working on getting our text message system underway for prayer requests or cancellations.  Last week Wednesday we sent out a 

 prayer request about Roger Reitsma.  If you did not receive a text message or if you need to add a new number, please let Keith Westra know 

 so we can check to make sure that your name is in the system.  The prayer chain number that sends out the texts is 797-979.
    We will be having a church potluck on April 29 after our morning service.  Please bring a dish to share.
    With tornado season underway, we want to remind you that if we are under a tornado warning within one hour before a church event starts, 

 that event is automatically cancelled.
    We have heard many favorable comments when a Praise Team leads the singing during the church service. However, we are in NEED 

 of more singers (especially MEN)! We are going to revamp how it has been done in the past with 3 teams and go with one list of singers. You

 will be called at random if you are available to sing on that particular Sunday and you may say yes or no if it doesn't work for you. At first we 

 are going to continue with having a praise team once a month. If we get enough people willing to serve in this way, we may try and go to twice

 a month or sing every 3rd Sunday. We are asking you (young and old) to PLEASE consider serving in this way. There's a signup sheet by

 the kitchen window.
    The Chandler Youth Group will be having a basketball game, sub supper and pie/dessert auction fundraiser on Wednesday, April 25

 at Chandler Christian School. Supper will start at 5:30 with the game starting at 7:00. Desserts will be auctioned off during halftime. Sign-up 

 sheets are in the back of church if you would like to preorder them.
