PHONE: 725- 5321 CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. Dear friends, Occasionally we overhear, "All these funeral flowers, what a waste". To show love and respect for the memory of any individual is never a waste but rather a kind deed that bolsters the spirits of a heartbroken family. We never think of a beautiful centerpiece for a dinner party a waste. Flowers, like funerals, are for the living and any compassionate concern that one individual shows to another is a commendable act. Respectfully, SERVICES FOR MANNINGS ASSEMBLY Pastor David A. Forkey an- nounces the following services: Sunday School at 10 a.m. for all ages; Morning Worship at ! 1 a.m.; Children's Church at 11 a.m., ages 3 to 12; Evening Service at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m., Rev. and Mrs. Vernon Dean will conduct a special service, singing and preaching God's word.

Ph. 725-3604 BY THE FOLLOWING WHO RECOGNIZE THE When we went for our walk today, the air was mellow and the sun was warm. The girls ran ahead, glad to be free of their winter bundlings. I fol- lowed more slowly, admiring tiny green shoots poking through the earth. Amy suddenly shouted, "Come quick! I've found a birdie's house." "It's called a nest," corrected big sister Jane. We admired the eggs and the nest and then moved quickly on, to the relief of the mother bird. There fol- lowed a marvelous discussion about mother birds and their offspring and God's plan for their welfare. It was a rare moment. Later, I thanked God for my church, which has helped me teach my daughters to look for God's goedness everywhere. Your church has many resources and is eager to help with your child's Christian education, Shouldn't you take advantage of it? !:! i,:2! i:! !!i!!! : :': i:: Sunday Monday Tuesday Mark Luke Luke 5:1-20 5:17-26 8:40-56 Copyright 1978 Keister Advertising Service, Strasburg, Virgtnca Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Matthew Matthew Luke Luke 9:27-31 9:32-34 6:6-11 11:14-23 W som . i VAN TOL IL FLORISTS r Flowers By Wire " Ph. 725-2019 Charles Town, W.
