Boomers: The Gathering
TODAY, 5:00 pm, Veterans Park
Come join us for a picnic in Veterans Park. The entrance to Veterans Park is off of Southpoint Boulevard, and we will be at Shelter #4. In the event of rain, we will meet in the FAC Gym! Regardless, we will have good fun and fellowship (would you believe a CORN HOLE TOURNAMENT??). Fried chicken and beverages will be provided. You bring something else to make our meal—enough for you plus one. (Don’t everybody bring dessert!)
The Nominating Committee welcomes nominations from the congregation for certain leadership positions. Any active member of First Alliance may nominate any other active member by completing a “Nomination Form”, which can be found at Guest Services. Return the completed form to the Church Office by May 22. The annual meeting and elections will be on June 11.

Return your bottle on Father’s Day, June 18, with cash or checks payable to Assurance. Questions? Call Mike & Pam Pepper, 223-7495.

Congratulations to Grant Rinehart and Nathanael Vetters. These young men have memorized most of the book of Luke, and qualified to the Ohio Valley district all-star Bible quiz team. The competition, against teams from the US and Canada, will be held in Minnesota in July.
