Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! I was invited to attend a seminar the last week of March in Townsend, Tennessee. The people who invited me paid for it...so you know I went. The meetings were great. But I really want to tell you about the Drive. I left Floyd, and 4 inches of snow behind. As I drove along I began to see blooms on trees, and something that we have not seen a lot of in Floyd of late...we remember it as "the sun". It is still there and still warm. By the time I reached Knoxville I was driving with my window down. Lillie's, apple trees, and redbuds were In full bloom. I could not help but think that it looks like Easter has already come. Sometimes we all experience hard "winters of our souls". But our life is not winter. We are people of spring. We are the RESURRECTION people. When in those winter times of grief and sorrow we have friends whom stand before us in full bloom of resurrection always reminding us that all winters will be swallowed up in His spring. Happy Easter, Steve

MARTHA CIRCLE The Martha Circle will again be awarding a financial scholarship to graduating high school seniors who are planning on attending college this fall. This will be our 4th year to utilize the accumulated funds earned via various projects. Any graduating senior who has been a member of our church Youth Group may be eligible to receive a scholarship by submitting an essay which describes his or her participation in our church and it's youth group, how you plan to continue to walk with the faith you have gained from this membership and what school you plan to attend. All essays should be submitted to Gayle Griffin by May 1, 2014.

Martha Circle is excited to be producing an informal pictorial directory for Floyd United Methodist Church. We are using the Realm software that the church already uses for other purposes, so the directory format is fixed. It will be an alphabetical listing by family with a family snapshot, address, phone number (s) and e-mail addresses. The directory will be invaluable for new members and for keeping in touch, but it will only be a success if everyone participates. All families that participate will get a free copy of the directory. You can participate in one of three ways: •Don and Donna Johnson are taking family photos to use in the directory. We've had one session with 31 families participating. The makeup session is scheduled for April 13 before Sunday School at 9am and after church. Be sure to mark your calendar for this date and get your picture made. Before the photo session we will verify the information you want to make public. •If you have a smart phone or digital camera, you can take your own picture. E-mail your digital photo to Cheryl Baker at [email protected], along with the contact information you want to include in the directory. Closeup square photos work best. The photo in the directory will be about 1.25 inches square. • If you have a small hard copy photo you would like to use, you can mail it to Cheryl Baker at PO Box 158, Floyd, VA 24091. The picture will be scanned and returned to you. Please include a stamped, self addressed envelope, otherwise the picture will be left in the church office for you to pick up.
