Weekly News 5/11/11

Good Morning Everyone.
Hope all your gardens are in and doing well, mine is not.  Maybe get to work on it Friday or Saturday.

Is there still a SBA Prayer chain?  From time to time I get prayer requests that should get to others more quickly than once a week and to those who will pass it on to prayer groups in our churches.  If you are aware of the prayer chain/tree to the churches please let me know so that I may send on requests in a more timely manner.  If we don't should we get one together?

Don't forget!!!  Men's Retreat and Muslim Study this week.  See below for more info however if you haven't signed up it may be to late.  Call the organizers.
