The Mission of Hospitality

Can YOU Help ?

Our church is often complemented on the receptions provided to families following a memorial service. This is a caring service offered by Presbyterian Women. The receptions are accomplished through the work of many hands. More and new hands are needed to lighten the task. There is a detailed how-to manual and people to provide guidance and support.  So no one is on their own.   (more…)

Presbyterian Women

At the Presbytery PW Fall Gathering we were offered information on PW global missionaries we could choose to support.  It would mean praying for them, communicating with them, acknowledging holidays and birthdays with cards, and offering support for their activities. (not necessarily monetary). (more…)

From the Pastor

 

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcomeJohn 1:5

Now more than ever, we need to focus on the lighting candles for Peace, Hope, Joy, Love and the Christ.   Lighting the five candles of Advent can be just a ritual.  Or it can be a time for focused and sincere prayer for ourselves, our country and the world.  Advent Worship services will begin with the lighting of the Advent candle wreath.  And, you can light a candle at home for yourself and family.

Advent is a season of preparation for Christmas in our homes and “Immanuel” in our hearts.

The message is still true around the world, God is with us.  Christ is the Immanuel who brings the Light into our darkness. Come, let us sing, pray and bring that Light into the life of at least one other person this Advent/ Christmas season.  

May the Peace of Christ be within you;
May the Hope of Christ lift your Spirit;
May the Joy of Christ fill you;
and may the Love of Christ embrace and inspire you

Pastor Deborah Lind-Schmit
