We invite all grandparents and parents of SWMCH students to join us for a light breakfast of pastries and yogurt bar served from 7:45-8:30 a.m. Following the breakfast, we will have chapel in the gym. The final Senior Citizens and freshman class game and coffee time will start at 9:15 a.m.  Following chapel, you may also visit a classroom until 10:23 a.m.  The drama department will be performing one of their two plays at ECES starting at 10:30 a.m.  In the afternoon, the student body will be conducting Acts of Random Kindness from 12:00-3:00 p.m. (weather permitting).

Friday, April 26 & Saturday, April 27 - Spring Play Performances:  Ever wonder what kind of impact the internet and social media is having on your brain?  Come join the SWCH students on Friday, April 26th and Saturday, April 27th at 7:00 PM at ECES as they present the plays “This is Your Brain on Social Media” and “The Internet is Distract--Oh, Look a Kitten” by Ian McWethy.  These plays use hilarious stories and sketches to describe our world under the influence of the internet and social media.  Be prepared to laugh and be challenged by this humorous look at our “connected” society. Tickets may be purchased in advance by calling the school office (442-4471) or at the door the evening of the performance.

Please join us for a Miscellaneous/Pampered Chef bridal shower for Emily DeGroot, bride-to-be of Hunter Dilly, on April 27, 2019 at Ebenezer Church from 10:30-12:30. Feel free to bring a miscellaneous gift or pick out a Pampered Chef item for Emily. You can also buy for yourself or others. Please bring a favorite recipe for Emily.

Please join us for a free community woman's event at Bethel CRC Church, Edgerton on April 27 from 9am-4pm. IF:Gathering - Gathering in churches, around tables, in living rooms, and in coffee shops is the spark for life-on-life discipleship. In 2019 we invite you to link arms with thousands of other women for IF: Gathering 2019 as we reclaim the priority of discipleship and discover what it looks like to lean on God's wisdom instead of our own. Will you join us? You can find more information at www.ifgathering.com. Register now at Edgerton.iflocal.com or contact Renee at 507-220-1369. Find our event on Facebook. You may come and go as needed. Lunch provided. Childcare upon request. 

The weekly offerings of the Sunday school classes this past year will be sent to Harvest Hands Ministries.  (This is the organization that works with the orphanage that members of our community have gone to in the past in Juarez, Mexico).  We would like to also give the congregations an opportunity to give to this mission.  There will be a labeled container in the back of Ebenezer on Easter Sunday and at Bethel on April, 28 if you would like to support this cause.
