1. Pastor’s thoughts:

Another Memorial Day has come and gone.  As you know, Memorial Day is the day when Americans across the globe, pause and give tribute to the men and women who have given their lives so that you and I may enjoy the freedoms we have.  If you weren’t in church this past Sunday you missed a wonderful service of paying tribute to our veterans.  The music was fantastic and there was a very patriotic theme and feeling in our congregation.  We ended our service with a video on our national cemetery Arlington with a ballad by Trace Atkins.  Every time I watched it, it brought many tears thinking of the awesome price that was paid for the freedoms we enjoy.  What a privilege it is to be an American. 

 

2. Laugh a little:

Lost on his way to speak at a church, Bishop Fulton Sheen asked a little boy to help him find it.  The little boy asked him why he was going to church.  “To speak,” Sheen told him. 

“What about?” the boy wanted to know.

“I’m going to tell people how to get to heaven,” he replied.

The little boy laughed and when the bishop asked him what was so funny, said, “You’re going to tell them how to get to heaven when you can’t even find the church.”

 

A young man brought his wife to a small town doctor’s office in an emergency.  The nurses escorted the woman to the examination area, and the husband anxiously took a seat in the lobby.

For the next few minutes, he could hear the doctor bark an unsettling string of orders to the staff.  First it was “Knife!” Then “Screwdriver!” Then “Pliers!”

When he heard “Sledgehammer!” the young man burst into the examination room and shrieked, “Doctor, what’s wrong with her?”  “We have no idea,” the doctor said. “Right now we’re still trying to open the medicine cabinet.”

 

 

 

3. Thought for the month:

There are three types of people in this world: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who wonder what happened. We all have a choice. You can decide which type of person you want to be. I have always chosen to be in the first group.
Mary Kay Ash

 

4. Helpful websites:

Ever had your Pastor ask you to read the Scripture and he tells you “it is Numbers chapter 13” and you look at all those names and groan to yourself, “How in the world do you pronounce these names?”  Well, if you have, here is a website you will love.  It has most of the Bible names and actually pronounces each.  Here it is: http://netministries.org/bbasics/bbwords.htm

6. Rose Hill News:

There are many important things happening at Rose Hill during the month of June.  Your church board set aside the last Sunday of June (every year) as a Friend Day in commemoration of our church anniversary.  This June 28th we are planning all kinds of special music and events.  After the morning service our men will have grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and we are asking each family to bring their favorite food items for a great dinner on the grounds day.  Kristy is planning games for us.  Please mark this day on your calendar and invite your friends and family to come and celebrate Friend Day with us. 

 

One of the great things Rose Hill is known for is her support of World Missions.  We will be taking our Faith Promise pledges on June 14th.  We ask that you be praying what God would have you pledge for this next year.  Please keep your current pledge until June 14th

 

I have heard it said by many: “You know we have to cut back somewhere.  Let’s see, we can’t cut back on our mortgage, or our car payment or utilities or groceries or the credit cards…what can we cut back on?  Oh, yes, we can cut back on what we give to the church.  They won’t come after me.”  Folks, I hope that is not your thinking.  As we enter these last days, I don’t see things improving very soon.  I want to encourage you not to cut back on what you give to God and His church.  He is the One who blesses us and gives us what we have.  Take a few minutes and re-read Malachi 3:10 to see what God has promised to those who bring in His tithes and offerings!  What an awesome promise!

 

June 21st we will be honoring our fathers.  We will have a special gift for 6 fathers.  I hope all our fathers will make the effort to be here as we honor each one.  We will also be taking the World Broadcast offering on this day. 

 

Rose Hill birthdays include: Sarah Skillern (4th), Robert Siegler (6th), Leslie Siegler (8th), Paige Siegler (10th), and Belinda Carter (22nd).

 

Anniversaries include: Robert & Nancy Siegler (14th), Greg & Cynthia Hayes (15th), OD & Terry Smothers (18th), and Pastor Steve & Faith Comeans (21st).  If we have overlooked your birthday or anniversary, we apologize and ask that you please bring it to our attention.

 

Don’t forget the ladies’ Bible study that meets on Tuesdays at 10:00 AM and the men’s prayer breakfast that meets on the third Saturday at 8:00AM.

 

The first Sunday of June, the 7th will be the monthly Sunday School breakfast starting at 9:00 AM.  Hope you will come with a good appetite.  Our cooks do a wonderful job.

 

At the present we have 3 regular small groups that meet.  Charles Casey leads one at the church on Sundays at 5:00 PM; Faith Comeans leads one on Mondays at 6:30 P.M. at the parsonage, and George Bratton is leading a small group at his home at 3101 Vanness Drive in Little Rock on Thursdays at 7:00 P.M.  At the present, Sharon Gray is leading a small group “Beginning Conversational Spanish at the church on Sundays at 5:00 P.M.  (This class is closed to new members). If you haven’t tried one of Rose Hill’s small groups, we invite you to try one
