GOD'S LITTLE ANGELS INVITES all children and adults to join them in seeing "Epic" (rated PG), at the Loews Theater in Woodridge, on May 25. The movie starts at 10:30 (and is in 3D). Following the movie, we'll go to Papa's Pizza at 83rd Street and Janes Avenue, for lunch. Please contact Kim Johnson if you are interested in attending, so she can make lunch reservations.
Here is a synopsis of "Epic": Magically transported to a secret universe, a teenage girl (Amanda Seyfried) joins an ongoing battle between the forces of good, who keep the natural world alive, and the forces of evil, who wish to destroy it.
WE ARE LOOKING TO SEE IF ANYONE KNOWS SOMEONE WITH A DEVICE TO DETECT UNDERGROUND PLUMBING / PIPES. Please let Jim Wharton know if you do, thanks.

LADIES OF ST. JOHN - if you are looking to sing sometime this summer, a women's ensemble is being put together, to sing on June 30th! Rehearsals will be after the service, in the sanctuary, on the following Sundays: May 26; June 9, 16, and 23. (No rehearsal on June 2nd, due to the German service.) We will rehearse before the service on the 30th, in the choir room, at 9:30. You don't need to be present at all of the rehearsals to sing with us. If you are interested, please see Kim Johnson.
