News & Views from Campus: April 16th – April 22nd 2023

-Wal-Mart Shopping returns this week on Wednesday the 19th. Meet at the front entrance at 8:30, BUT, before you do, you must contact Sally at ext. 4227 by Tuesday at Noon to reserve your spot on the bus!

-This week’s entertainment features the classic McLintock, starring John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara, showing at 1pm on Wednesday. Tough cattle baron G.W. McLintock uses his power and influence to keep the peace in the territory between farmers, ranchers, Indians, and corrupt government officials.

Also, join in with fellow residents on Wednesday evening at 6pm for a screening of Lost Island, a feel-good story of several children who, after their grandfather falls ill, head to the sea to protect endangered sea turtles from dangerous poachers!

-You Won’t Want To Miss Beanboozled on Wednesday at 1:30pm in the Social Room! The game is designed so that two Jelly Belly jelly beans look IDENTICAL but have VERY different flavors. For example, a brown Jelly Belly may be Chocolate Pudding but it may also be Canned Dog Food.  The catch is that there is absolutely no way to tell–not by color or smell. You won’t know until you bite into the candy! Be sure to stop by and get ready to laugh!

Happy Birthday

Weekly Inspiration

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.”

Prayer Request & Scripture


John 7:16-17 So Jesus answered them. “My teaching is not mine but God’s, Him who sent me. If any person would truly desire to do His Will, he or she will come to realize whether my teaching is from God or if I am declaring things I made up on my own.”  


Pray a prayer of praise and thanksgiving to God, Our Creator, Our Savior, Our Protector, Our Strength, Our Helper, Our Comforter, Our Counselor, Our Treasure, Our Friend. Praise God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
