Holy Week Passports – On Sunday, April 9, plan to join Miss Adriane in the Fellowship Hall following the worship service to create your Holy Week Passport. This Passport will walk through Holy Week with you and help you get ready for our big day: Easter! We’ll also be making some fun centerpieces for our Easter brunch. We hope you’ll join us for the fun time!
Mission Possible – It’s Spring! And that means time for Spring Cleaning! We’ll be launching our Mission Possible program with a new favorite: Laundry Day! On Laundry Day, we head to the laundromat with quarters and laundry soap in hand to share with our friends who utilize the facility. We also help out by carrying laundry to and from their car for them. We had a lot of fun last time and can’t wait to do it again. This project is in the planning stage, so keep watching your email and Facebook for the date! Sunday, April 9, plan to join us in the Fellowship Hall following the worship service!
We Meet – If you come to church on Wednesdays, you’ll notice good smells drifting from the kitchen. Join us on Wednesday nights for dinner at 6:15 p.m. prepared by various members of our church family. The kids get in on the action too, by not only helping prepare and clean up dinner but by making cards for members of the church family . The kids look forward to making cards and sending them and the adults enjoy receiving them and sometimes responding with a special note. There’s always a need for more cards, so plan to join us!
Youth Group – “Tale as old as time….” Beauty and the Beast was full of “God moments!” Eight youth and four adults went to see the new film at the Woodland Mall with the intention to see God’s work in the movie. Following the movie we had a short discussion of where we saw God moving and how it made us feel. It was wonderful to hear all of the students and their different viewpoints! We’ll be meeting up again on Sunday, April 9 from 4:00-6:00 with the Pastors’ and then on Sunday, April 30 in the Youth Room. Hope to see you there! Be sure to watch the First Presbyterian Church Youth Facebook page and keep an eye on your email for details on upcoming events.
Worship CDs – An excellent way to continue helping your child be immersed in God’s word and will is to listen to our worship service throughout the week. You can request a CD from Miss Adriane or from the church office to listen to at home or in the car. Listening to the CDs will allow your child to remember what happened on Sunday and help familiarize them with our group prayers and sung responses like the Doxology. Please see Miss Adriane if you have any questions.
Sacred Space – We have been exploring the stories from the book, “Following Jesus: More Young Children and Worship”. We are really enjoying our time in Sacred Space! Recently, we learned the story of the Paralytic and His Friends and also heard this year’s Gracie the Fish story. We’ll be learning more about One Great Hour of Sharing as the month goes on and then continue our journey with Jesus. We will be exploring many new stories in Sacred Space and are in need of adult helpers. Please let Miss Adriane know if you’ll be able to help us with this.
Safe Church – A big thank you to everyone who has signed up to assist in the Nursery or Sacred Space. Being able to support our families and children with the Safe Church guidelines is a wonderful way to be welcoming and inclusive. Keep up the good work! We have the nursery covered for the remainder of the school year, but we still need help in Sacred Space. Please let us know if you’re able to come and help us out.
