The De Sot Methodist church had an interesting newsletter for the month of May with lots of June activities listed. On June 3, a group will be going to Crosslines at the Leawood United Methodist church for a spaghetti dinner. From June 8-11, the east Kansas UMW Annual Conference will take place at the Asbury United Methodist church in Prairie Village.
The Methodist church will be having its Vacation Bible School July 25-29 in the evenings from 6-8:30 p.m. Their theme is "Panda-Mania" and all children in the community are invited to come learn more about the Lord.
The De Soto Baptist church's adult Sunday School class was missing three teachers on Sunday. I gave the opening prayer and had someone else read the scriptures and lead the discussion. We always welcome new members to the class. We shared a lot of prayer concerns as well. Jeff Coatney fell and hurt his leg, it's very scraped up. Charlie Lawhead's friend Katie, who is only 23 years-old, has a very rare eye infection and Reba Barola's aunt in Texas has eye cancer. The Lawheads also had a cousin pass away this week.
The Baptist church's bulletin had and extra sheet in it this week asking the congregation to fill it out for Vacation Bible School. Karen had some books available and some on backorder for the event. This year's theme is "Inside Out and Upside Down" and will take place June 20-24 from 1-3:45 p.m. Enrollment is open now and we are accepting volunteers, if interested call Karen Wall at (913) 583-9912.
I cleaned out my refrigerator last week and found that something sticky had spilled and required quite a bit of scrubbing. I was glad Debbie and Hayden cam to my rescue and helped me with the shelves and things I couldn't reach. I had many things for the birds and squirrels.
The needs at the community food pantry this week are: canned meat; canned tuna; white rice and baby products.
Rose McAnnich's great-grandson is home now and doing well. A tornado damaged the town of Reading quite badly and several other places are bad as well. I still have to wash my legs down every night and put my cream medicine on, I have two different creams for my legs and my knees.
Those celebrating birthdays this week are: Mark Crisper; Juanita Marshall; Nicholas Cardiff; Raquel Krout; Mary Jo McDaniels and Jamie Towner.
Jeff and Traci Griffin are celebrating their anniversary.
