MAIN STREET CHURCH OF CHRIST
For the Week Beginning May 10, 2009 Welcome Guests!
The Blessing of Mothers
A first grade teacher seated her students in a circle. She asked them
what they wanted to be when they grew up. One by one, each child
got up and announced, "I'd like to be a nurse like my mother," or "I
want to be a banker like my father," or "I want to be a teacher like
you, Miss Smith." Thank you for coming!
Please fill out an attendance card and
place in collection plate.
The last child to speak was the most shy and timid little boy in the
class. He said, "When I get big, I'm going to be a lion tamer in the For your convenience a nursery is located

“AIN’T IT FUNNY?”
CHURCH OF CHRIST
How we set our clocks to arise at 5:00 A.M. to be at the job by 7:30; yet, when
Sunday comes we can't get to the church building for the 10:00 A.M. Bible study
to learn more about the One who gave us our jobs.
How we call God our Father and Jesus our brother; but find it hard to introduce
Preacher them to our family and friends.
How small our sins seem; but how big "their" sins are.
How we demand justice for others; but expect mercy from God.
Deacons How much difficulty some have learning the gospel well enough to tell others;
SAM AKERS but how simple it is to understand and explain the latest gossip about someone
How we can't think of anything to say when we pray; but don't have any difficulty
thinking of things to talk about to a friend.
Building & Grounds
How we are so quick to take directions from a total stranger when we are lost;
Young @ Heart
but are hesitant to take God's direction for our lives.
