On Sabbath, May 22nd, the Adventurer Club presented the
church service. They did a great job from telling the chil- dren's story, collecting the offering and doing special mu-
sic with the kindergarten class. Jeremy Garlock had the sermon, and told how the Adventurer club is a adventur- ous journey with Christ in Christian service. During the sermon he had each group of the Adventurers come up
front and do a little presentation on their journey. This is
the last year for Jeremy and his wife Joya to be the leaders
of the Adventurers, and we want to thank them for the
terrific job they have done working with these young peo- ple.

Let's remember our Homebound brothers and sisters celebrating birthdays soon
Happy Father's Day!
You're a son, a brother (Jesus is your brother),
an uncle or like one to some child.
You're a husband, the spiritual leader in your home,
you're a daddy, you are God's son.
You wear many hats, and someone looks up to you
for guidance and support.
We take our hats off to you and wish you a relaxed
and happy day filled with God's blessings.
Chip CornerBy Sally Hafner
We have had two wonderful Good Health seminars on May 17 and May 24. The food was delicious according to the guests. We had home made vege- burgers and oven fries with whole wheat rolls. Louise Hafner's lentil stew was enjoyed over brown rice. We studied the benefits of sunshine. Sunshine changes cholesterol to vitamin D under the skin. The video with Dr. David Delrose was entertaining. Dr. Delrose showed how to main tain healthy habits. The second week we discussed the benefits ofproper rest and breathing fresh air. We enjoyed Marion Lake's vegetable stir-fry and her fresh berry pie. We are looking forward to the fall when we will have a booth at the New York State Fair and then a full CHIP program in October/November. Please continue to pray that God will be revealed through this ministry.
On May 16th, church business and school constituency meetings were held at Parkview Junior Academy. Before the meet- ings, the students from Parkview served a delicious spaghetti supper. This was followed by the students singing a song. At the business meeting, the financial budget for the church, for next year was reviewed and passed. Plans for the evangelistic meetings this fall were also reviewed. Following the church business meeting, Kim Kaiser, Principal of Parkview, talked about the goals of PJA and presented a wish list for the school. During this meeting, Fred Burghardt presented revisions to the school constitution, which were approved. Church treasurer, Larry Hayes talked about the "no child left out" campaign in which people are given empty cans to put money in. This money is used to help students attend PJA so that every child who wants to attend will not be left out. Following this meeting, everyone went outside and saw a demonstration of baton twirling by the students which was a very good performance.

The Rose of Calvary
Easter Cantata 4/3/10
The Westvale Choir, under the direction of Fred Burghardt, brought the Easter message to the congregation in songs by Joseph M. Martin. Many young people participated as well to help bring the powerful and victorious message of redemp- tion. "I love the Rose of Calvary, God's gift of grace. In love He clings to sorrow's tree, and softly weeps at its embrace, I love the Rose of Calvary, His petals crushed by hate and scorn, still His fragrance fills the night and, for our sin, He bears the thorn. Calvary's rose, Calvary's rose, in His life God's mercy flows. By His death our garden grows..." (from Joseph M. Martin)
