Biography
Atlas Girl: Finding Home in the Last Place I Thought to Look by Emily T. Wierenga – Emily Wierenga left home at age eighteen with no intention of ever returning. Broken down by organized religion, a childhood battle with anorexia, and her parents’ rigidity, she set out to find God somewhere else—anywhere else. Atlas Girl is a deeply personal story of the yearning we all share to be truly known, entirely forgiving, and utterly loved.
Junior Fiction
The Big Pig Stampede by Bob Hartman — In this unique collection of stories, Goat Boy and his friends experience the miracles of Jesus through their awkward adolescent eyes. The boys laugh, they make jokes, they observe, they puzzle over everything that Jesus does, and in their own quirky ways they become the eyes and ears of the reader as they witness the unfolding of the gospel story.
Imagination Station series (Books 10-12) by Marianne Hering

Upcoming Events
We are having church-wide potlucks May 1st and May 15th. Check the bulletin board to see which is your Sunday. We have tried to put everyone in a potluck group (if you’re not in a potluck group talk to Eric Isaac or Sid Dueck). If you can’t be at your scheduled Sunday, feel free to go another Sunday.

Bruce Peters, a missionary from Advancing Indigenous Missions, and Kirit, a pastor from India, will be in Arborg May 3 and 4. An informal meet n greet is being planned Tuesday May 3rd at 7:30. Location to be determined. Everyone is welcome!

Everyone is welcome to the May 4th Church Direction Night. One of the topics that will be discussed is Local Evangelism and how we as a church can grow in this area. More agenda items are welcome- talk to Eric Isaac.
