A Collect for the Fifth Sunday of Easter
Almighty God, whom truly to know is everlasting life: Grant us so perfectly to know your Son Jesus Christ to be the way, the truth, and the life, that we may steadfastly follow his steps in the way that leads to eternal life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Discovering the Bible, one of the core courses in the Kerygma Study Program meets on Monday, May 3rd at 10 am. This week: The Goal. You are warmly invited to join us in-person or on Zoom.

   The Offering Plate
As we gather more now for in-person worship, we still are not passing the offering plate. Your ushers will leave the plate near the back of the church so that you may leave an offering as you enter or depart.
Or, you may always take advantage of our online giving. Simply click on the plate to make an online offering for Wye Parish. This online giving feature also may be accessed any time from the Wye Parish website. Thank you to all who have mailed their weekly or monthly offerings and to those who are already using our online donation service.

  A Special Note from Operation Christmas Child
The Volunteers with Operation Christmas Child thank you for your shoebox donation at our drop-off center at Real Life Chapel.
Your donation to this ministry brought the Gospel of Christ to a child that needed to hear this message.
We pray that you will consider donating again this year.  May God Bless, Brian and Kay Spence
