RANCHO VIEJO FIFTH ANNUAL FIREWISE COMMUNITY CLEANUP DAY Last Sunday, the Outreach Team met to discuss opportunities to serve the greater community. One such opportunity is next Saturday, May 5 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Wildfire Community Preparedness Day. Meet at 10 a.m. in the Rancho Viejo Market parking lot, 55 Canada del Rancho, to sign up, pick up your t-shirt, gloves and trash bags. There is free pizza, ice cream and a raffle from noon to 1 p.m.

NEW PRAYER SQUARES MINISTRY Introducing the new Prayer Squares ministry! Please join us for a brief meeting after church on May 6 if you're interested in creating prayer squares for blankets and shawls. The squares from many hands will be crocheted or sewn into blankets/ shawls, rather like the laying on of hands for healing. No experience is necessary, and yarn & hooks/needles will be supplied. At the meeting, we'll talk about when and how often to meet, where to meet, who needs to learn the art (knitting or crocheting, right- or left-handed). It is a wonderfully magical ministry, and an opportunity for fellowship and the calm of needlework.
