Lunch-time Reading Groups
Apr 26 @ 12:00 pm

Meets from 12:00 noon to 1:00 on either Wednesdays or Sundays, beginning the last week of April (26th and 30th)

PCUSA has recommended that every Presbyterian congregation read and discuss the book, Waking up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race by Debby Irving. We are starting two discussion groups, one meeting on Wednesdays at the church, the other meeting on Sundays after the second service at Bubble Tea (or other local restaurant).  Feel free to attend either (or both) for as many sessions as you can make.  The first meeting of the Wednesday group will be April 26; the first meeting of the Sunday group will be April 30.  The book is divided into 9 sections, each consisting of several short chapters; the plan is to discuss one of the nine sections each week. The book is available in paperback.  The church is purchasing a few copies for those who would like to borrow them rather than purchase one to own.

Photographers Wanted

For many, many years, Joan McClure has been taking wonderful pictures of our church life.  Joan has expressed an interest in reducing the number of these occasions and concentrating primarily on church school activities.  The Communications Committee is asking for volunteers to help take pictures when Joan is not available.  If you are interested in becoming one of several people to assist in photographing our church life and have a digital camera or a smart phone with a higher mega-pixel camera, please contact the church office.

From the Parish Nurse

Dear Church Family,

April is National Organ Donor Awareness Month.  I suspect that most of us have known someone who has been on an organ recipient list.  Some people get the call that an organ match has been found, others sadly never get that call. (more…)

Take Note


 
“They brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it; and he sat on it.  Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut in the fields. Then those who went ahead and those who followed were shouting, ‘Hosanna!  Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!’” (more…)
