SAYONARA SUNDAY POTLUCK LUNCH
SUNDAY JUNE 10TH after the service
Every year in this season, we say good-bye to some of our church families and friends. To give them a warm farewell, please join us with a dish (main, salad or dessert) for 8-10 people to share.
We also prepare large Japanese style card for each family to leave. Please stop by and sign your name or write a short note.

LOVE OFFERING FOR SCOTT AND ALISA ON JUNE 10TH
As you may already know, our Youth Pastor Scott Kuppe, his wife Alisa and their children Jaylen and Daina will be leaving in August to go back to the United States. For the past four years, they've been actively ministering to the Youth in Kansai and have touched many lives with their love. On June 10th "Sayonara Sunday," we'll be having a special offering specifically for them to help with their transition back to the US and to show our love as a congregation. Please prayerfully consider if you'd like to help them as they prepare their move home.
ARE YOU LEAVING KOBE THIS SUMMER?
It would be helpful for us in the church office to know about those who are leaving. Please email details to Kikuko (email@example.com) or to Pastor Bruce. For those who are leaving this summer – we are holding a Sayonara Sunday on June 10, during which we want to pray for you, and say “farewell”. Please let us know if you are leaving, and whether you will be at our service on Sunday June 10.
Did you know there's a KUC library? We have hundreds of amazing books available to check out upstairs on the top floor! Simply find your book, fill out the library card to leave at the front desk, and make sure to bring it back in 4 weeks to give someone else the chance to read it!
SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL
The last day for our regular Sunday School program will be May 20th. Then on May 27th we have the AGM. Then for the next 5 weeks (excluding June 10th which is our Sayonara Sunday), we will be running a Summer Sunday School program for all those who remain in Kobe over the summer. We will have all the usual Sunday School programs – for children, youth and adult Bible Studies.
DID YOU ENJOY THE SPECIAL ITEMS IN OUR SERVICES?
Each Sunday, we try to include a special item (an instrumental, or a solo or a group item) as part of our worship. We have had solo singers, choirs, piano, violin, flute, harp, koto, guitar items – and it is wonderful to have so many who are willing to share their gift with the congregation. It really does add something special to our worship. We are always looking for more people willing to share their gift. If you would like to sing / or share an instrumental, please don't be shy about it - let us know! If you know of someone we should ask, let us know too! Ping organizes this roster – and she would love to hear your suggestions.
Let her or Pastor Bruce know.
HAVE PRAYER NEEDS?
If you would like prayer after the service, please ask one of our prayer team (led by Tomoyo) who can help, or Pastor Bruce. A group also meets for prayer every Sunday morning 8.15am – 8.45am prior to the service in the ANNEX room (downstairs at KUC, next to nursery). Come and pray! If you have any requests for prayer, please let Tomoyo know so that it can go into our weekly prayer sheet. Contact Tomoyo.
