Each visitor wishing access to the building will need to show a driver’s license or other picture ID. The ID will be scanned and checked. The system will print a visitor sticker badge with picture.

May is such a busy month! I don’t know about you, but there just seems to be so much to do in May. It’s like the summer is a reward for the busyness of May and early June.

When life gets so busy and hectic, I like to meditate on God’s Word. It calms me down and resets my day. Puts me back on the right path.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. ~ Matthew 11:28-29 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4:6-7

Have a wonderful long-weekend!
