If you use text messaging, we have a new service that will help you keep up with prayer requests and schedule changes. Just text follow powhatanchurch to 40404 (this only works in the US). Whenever something is posted to our Prayer Request blog, you will receive a text message from 40404 labeled “Powhatanchurch:” with the post title, a short excerpt, and a link to the post itself.
This will let us send word about prayer requests or last-minute schedule changes to your mobile phone, so you don’t have to wait until you check email to find out what’s going on. You can unsubscribe from this service by texting unfollow powhatanchurch to 40404.
This service is in a trial period; let us know if you like this or not. If you have any questions, see Scott Chestnut.
From Wanda Benson:
The Easter Egg Hunt will be tomorrow at 10:00am. Don’t forget it is very important to be on time because it will take all of 3 minutes to pickup the eggs. The egg hunt will be for 10 and under. I do have kites and bubbles for all of the youth.
Let me know if you are coming so I will know who will be attending.
Thanks and God Bless!
The older youth can hide the eggs.

Aubrey is in the hospital at REX since yesterday afternoon. He was experiencing heavy chest pain and felt that he needed to get to the hospital. He feels that he may have a staph infection in his chest. He said, because of the possibility of staph, no one should try and visit with him until he knows for sure what’s going on.
Please be much in prayer for Aubrey and Linda!
The visitation will be Thursday, May 21, from 6 pm to 9 pm at McLaurin Funeral Home in Clayton. Her funeral will be Friday, May 22, at 2:30 pm at Victory Fellowship Church in Garner (see http://www.vfgarner.com for directions).
Please continue to remember her family and friends in prayer.
