It’s kind of funny, that some of the coldest, wettest, and hottest weeks of my life have been spent, in of all places, Refugio de International de Niño’s, or rather, Children’s Haven Orphanage in Reynosa, Mexico. Coldest – February of 2006. On my first trip, with six other amigos from Rejoice to Children’s Haven Orphanage in Reynosa, Mexico, I had expected it to be at least warm To our surprise we experienced record cold. 20s and 30s may not seem cold to us Minnesotans, but when you aren’t prepared for it a week of temps like that is just plain miserable. I simply was not prepared for it. In Mexico schools close when the temp drops below 30 and school was closed at least two days that week. Consequently, I shivered through most of the week. Hottest – June of 2009. Last year a bus load of people from Rejoice traveled to the orphanage. I expected it to be hot, and I was not disappointed. Each day the temperature was in the high 90s or over 100. We made sure we drank plenty of water, and carried out our tasks in aiding the mission of this ministry. Wettest – April 11-16, 2010. My latest adventure to Reynosa was wet. Very wet, it rained (sometimes poured) every day of the week. There are no storm sewers so the roads become rivers and the mud plentiful. Yet, in spite of the rain, we dug holes, poured cement, welded, painted, played volleyball, and more. By the end of the week I had a couple of shirts that were impenetrable to Tide and Era. Those shirts will find new use as rags. Those three weeks also happen to be some of the most memorable and spiritually rewarding weeks of my life. We spend our day time hours fixing, repairing, building, digging, welding, and sewing. In the evenings, after cena (dinner), we participated in devotions, taking cabrito (horseback rides) with the smaller children, and spirited games of volleyball with the high school aged kids and house parents (Rejoice has some pretty good volleyball players). Another group from Rejoice will be venturing down to Reynosa in June. They will have the opportunity to share God’s love with these children and house parents, and while it may be too late to sign up for the summer trip, it is not too early to begin thinking about next year. If you have yearned for a life changing experience, then you might consider taking part in a future Mission trip. If you’d like to see a little bit of the work and fun we were privilege to be a part of check out the orphanage website at www.childrenshaven.org The Mexico Mission Group will be serving Brats at McDonald’s Meats (Clear Lake) on June 4th and 5th.

At the April meeting of the Council, the question of a third worship service came up again. And once again there was no quick answer. So, the members of the Council are looking for the thoughts and opinions of the congregation. Your questions, opinions, and sage advice are desired at this time. Please feel welcome to call or email council members. Sunday morning conversations are also welcome. This topic is on the agenda for discussion at the May 11 council meeting.

All children 4 years of age through 5th grade are welcome! Pre-registration forms are available and should be returned to the office by June 18th. If you are interested in staffing one of the activities, being a student group leader, or have any ―sailor‖ decorations/attire that could be used during VBS contact Janet Peterson at 320-223-0681 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in being part of Education at Rejoice, please call: Library: Diane Milbery @ 320-558-6387 School Curriculum: Becky Brzinski @ 320-558-6142 Adult Education: Lori Johnson @ 320-558-2191 Education programming: Chris Mueller @ 320-253-4460 ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Unlocking the Message of the Bible: A Guide to Biblical Interpretation 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesdays May 5th – June 30th In the Fellowship Hall Christians, faith communities, pastors, and your grandma are always encouraging you to read the Bible - but it seems as if each of these people reach different conclusions about what it says. How do they reach different conclusions? How can two people read the same story and interpret it to mean different things? Everyone who uses the Bible engages in interpretation! In this 9-week study we will explore the methodology, questions, and skills involved in interpreting the Bible. By building understanding of the composition, sources, historical contexts, inspiration, and varying types of literature of the Bible you will develop a framework within which to read and interpret Biblical stories that makes sense to you! This study will help you discern what the story meant to its original communities and what it can mean to us today. It will also challenge you to raise some of the questions that need to be asked of the Bible as you search for the meaning it can give your life and the lives of others. Sunday School Survey We are looking for ways to improve our Sunday School program. For the last seven years we have had the 2nd through 6th graders going through a rotational Sunday school model – this is where they have a different themed lesson through art, music, cooking and other methods of learning. We are exploring going back to a more traditional method of Sunday School where each grade has a teacher and a dedicated room that they use each Sunday. But we want to know what you think! You can either fill out this quick survey and return it to the basket on the interest table or come to our ministry meeting on Tuesday, May 11, 6:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall at Church. 1. What grade is your child(ren) currently in? 2. Do you feel they are retaining the lessons taught in Sunday school? _____ 3. Please indicate which sentence best describes your thoughts on rotation versus traditional Sunday school: __ No, please do not change it from rotation to traditional. __ I’m fine with either continuing the rotation model or changing to traditional Sunday School. __ Yes, please change back to the traditional Sunday School Additional comments: MAY YOUTH AND FAMILY MINISTRIES My Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord.

Boys Bathroom Girls Bathroom Spring is here!! The Property Team and some generous volunteers have been busy trimming bushes, raking the yard, building a prayer garden, cleaning the garage, along with other jobs, including fixing a vacuum cleaner, doing emergency plumbing and trouble shooting an electrical problem. Even confirmation students have gotten into the act by picking up rocks and doing ―artsy‖ painting in the education wing. To each of you I say “Thank You,” a thousand times over. It is so rewarding to know that members are stepping forward and helping out. An area where help is needed all summer is lawn mowing, weed management and watering. Sign up sheets are on the interest tables opposite the coat racks. We are still looking for members to do some small weekly tasks. If you have an hour a week available to help, call me, Karolyn @ 320-558-2247 Is God calling you to share your talents and labor to help Rejoice? –Karolyn Boucher, Bldg. & Property Council Representative, 320-558-2247 SING LIKE A CROW? If you are not a singer, aren’t comfortable ushering or reading scripture during service, I have a job for you!! We are in need of some volunteer custodial help. Weekly projects would include things like washing the glass on interior windows and doors, replacing paper products throughout the building, wiping off tables in the education wing and the dining room, vacuuming the Education Wing hall, the Narthex area or the altar area. These projects would be divided up so no one person would need to do multiple jobs, each job would only take about one hour, and could be matched to your abilities. We are not in a financial position that we can pay for more custodial time. Please consider helping.
