There will be a farewell potluck for the Templetons who are moving to Tennessee this coming Sabbath, April 16 after church. If you plan on attending, please bring an Asian-themed dish to feed 10-12. Also, there will be an opportunity to write a note to the Templetons in a scrapbook which will be set out on Sabbath so members can add their messages.  If possible, please bring a picture of your family which will be added to the scrapbook.

We would like to invite you and your friends to an evangelistic concert on May 14 at 5 PM at Mentone Seventh-day Adventist Church. Please invite your neighbors and other contacts.

IYMC is offering at Mentone exciting Music Camp opportunities for ages 6-13 from June 5-11.  Please visit iymcsda.org/mentone for registration and more information.

Music Ministry Training is for musicians ages 13 and up who wish to improve their musical skills and better understand the intersection between music and service. Attendees gain inspiration, guidance, and the practical training needed to revitalize music ministry. Over the course of a week, these classes equip students to be better music ministers in their local churches and beyond. Early bird registration is until April 12. Please visit iymcsda.org/mmt for more information.

Music For Everyone at Mentone SDA Church is designed for teens and adults who never had the opportunity to study music growing up but have a desire to begin their journey now. Perhaps you did take music lessons in your youth but it’s been so long you hardly remember anything. This is the event for you! Attendees will have the option to study piano, guitar, or voice. This one-hour class will be held from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM over the course of five days. Early bird registration is until April 12.  Please visit iymcsda.org/mfe.
The Institute of Young Musicians for Christ (directed by our friend Daniel Cerna) is thrilled to be traveling to Madagascar to host a music camp for over 100 school children who have little to no access to music education! If you would like to support this worthy endeavor please visit https://www.iymcsda.org/madagascar.

Share Love’s Last Call and the Great Controversy with your neighbors. We have received part of our large order of Love’s Last Call GLOW tracts and encourage everyone to share them with our neighborhoods. We also want to encourage you to adopt an area around our church to share the Great Controversy with.  We have teams that go out every Sabbath at 2:00 pm (at the Loma Linda Market and the Tabernacle).

We need more volunteers to help write cards for birthdays, anniversaries, and other special events.  Please contact Ethel Meyer, if you are interested:  909-289-0765

Glenn Welch, recently re-baptized Mentone member, has passed away.  Please keep Mary Welch in your prayers.   Her address is 834 Grampian Blvd., Williamsport, PA 17701.
