A suggested $5 donation at the door is requested. All works will be available for purchase. April 1st- Riddick Hall- Redeemer Church of Arlington @ AUMC, 716 S. Glebe Road, Arlington, Virginia

Sign up, and then ask friends and family to support you financially as you support Assist! Mike and I, and our kids, will be there, so let us know if you sign up!

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: One of my favorite shout outs is about the unseen serving that people do for Redeemer. Last Saturday, Mace Shadid, served and sacrificed her Saturday morning to organize files and paperwork for Redeemer staff (me). This was a HUGE blessing and released me to enjoy a day off! Mace asked, pursued, and accomplished a volunteer task because of her heart to serve and her mind for organization. For several hours she was at the church office, reviewing paperwork and ensuring that things were accurately organized. Thank you, Mace for pursuing serving, sacrificing a weekend day, and helping staff!

–See something? Say something! Give me a shout of who is serving:
