     Passionate worship
    Swift worship report 

    A jam-packed month for worship

     By KIM WHITCHARD and GREG McNAIR | elders 

    April showers bring May flowers (and the heat!).

    We have had a busy May in the life of Swift Church.

    ■ On the first Sunday, May 6, we honored our high school graduates: Jessica Gosa, Sarah Kleinschmidt and William Vanbrimmer, and Philip Melton, who received his certificate in congregational leadership from the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary.

    ■ We celebrated our mothers on Mother’s Day (Thank you, mothers, for all you do.) We enjoyed the flames of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Sunday (May 20).

    On that special day, we also celebrated the graduation of four preschoolers — Sarah Barber, Vera Kleinschmidt, Brody Ward, and Kimber Wilson — then confirmed nine Swift youth — Olivia Akins, Braxton Akins, Zadie Grace Barnwell, Ava Brewer, Gracie Helton, Ella Thomas, Jon Devery Thomas, Baylee Thomason and Maycie Ulrich — and rejoiced in the baptism of Gracie Helton.

    Congratulations to all these children and their families.

    ■ May 27 was Trinity Sunday, when we celebrated the Trinity: God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

     † † † 

    As we move into June, we look forward to celebrating our fathers on June 17. Remember to wear your Hawaiian shirts. We will also be giving a special gift to all the men of the church. Please see Pastor Keith if you would like to volunteer to assist with those “homemade” gifts. June 20 is World Refugee Day, when we commemorate the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees who are forced to flee their homes and countries.

    And further into the summer is July Fourth on the first Wednesday of July, so mark your calendars.

     † † † 

    The worship committee again wants to thank all of the volunteers for your time and service. There are a few openings for nursery, acolytes, and greeters so if the Lord is calling you to serve, please contact either Greg McNair or Kim Whitchard for further information.

    It is a pleasure and an honor to serve you as your worship elders.

    Have a great summer.

    If you have ideas for worship, please feel free to share them with Pastor Keith, Pastor Jody Beth, Music Director Lisa, Judy Walker or your worship elders.
