John Herr, son of Laurie Herr member of Chancel Choir, attended Whitworth University in Spokane for the last four years.  He majored in accounting with a minor in vocal performance.  He received a Bachelor of Arts degree. 

After his graduation trip to Italy, he will be working with his mom in the family business, Lincoln Tax & Accounting Service, located in Lincoln Center on Greenburg Road.
One of  our hobbies is medieval re-enactment, which is why the picture shows him in 16th century Italian clothing. Congratulations, John!

PRAYER LIST STILL ACTIVE DURING THE SUMMER!!  Although Daughters of the King do not have meetings in the summer, we still maintain our prayer list. There are  new prayer request cards next to the prayer box. The prayer box is in the Narthex next to the stairs. When we restart our meetings in September, all members of the parish are invited to join us in Morning Prayer at 11am.  We have our meetings in the guild room after Morning Prayer. Also, DOK voted to financially provide the Forward Day by Day books. There is a donation box next to the booklets to help us cover all of the cost to the parish.  We hope you will use the Forward Day by Day books as a means of daily Bible reading.

A special thank you to Steve and Sue Hiscoe for their thoughtful and generous gift of professionally installed lighting over the cross and tabernacle in the Chapel.

Light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it .  John 1:5
on Third Saturday! 

Our 3rd Saturday team is too small to manage the increase in people coming for the meal. Please, if you can help out even for an hour or so, contact Nancy Patrick at 971-271-1339. 

Also, our 3rd Saturday cook will be out of town in June on business. I will be cooking but would like some help. Just give me a call. Thank you.
