This Sunday April 30, 2017 at 5pm
This Sunday evening at 5:00 our congregational meeting will begin with a potluck in Fellowship Hall. We gather to elect new council members, members of the Endowment and Audit Committees, and delegates to the Synod Assembly. We will also receive the Endowment Committee Report, and hear updates on projects related to building enhancements. Finally, this is an opportunity to meet and welcome our newest members journeying through the WAY, and to participate in the PRLC Discernment Process. Be sure to be there!
More than once, you’ve heard me say “Never resist a generous impulse.” It is one of the ways we live as disciples of Jesus. I saw this in action last Sunday when several of you asked about helping the family of Patrick Meagher, our Minister of Outreach, in the months ahead as his wife Jena will be receiving radiation and chemotherapy treatments. You can practice generosity by contributing to a special fund to assist the family with Jena’s medical bills and other expenses. If you want to contribute to the fund, please make checks out to PRLC and in the Memo line write: “Jena’s Fund.” You may also contact Kirsten, our Parish Administrator. In addition, you can sign up to bring meals to the Meagher family and help in other ways by accessing Jena’s Caring Bridge Website. Please offer healing prayers for Jena and prayers for Patrick and Kloe as well.
As our WAY candidates ready themselves for baptism or affirmation of baptism, we as a congregation have a tradition of holding them each in prayer for the 24 hours leading up to Easter Vigil. We do this by individually signing up to pray for a specific half-hour in that 24-hour span, referring to the prayer requests they have shared, which you can read in the prayer vigil brochure below.
We still have some slots to fill in this vigil. Click on this link to see who has signed up for what time, and to sign up for one yourself. (Click on the “edit document” button in the upper right hand corner of the screen.) It’s a shared Word document, so you should be able to just type in your name where you want it, and we’ll all be able to see it.
Blessings in these Great Three Days.
We plan to:
- Clean Planting beds & place mulch;
- Prune hedges & trim shrubs;
- Rake and mow the lawn.
Many hands make light work! Come help an hour, or stay the entire time (9:30am-2:30pm). Lunch will be provided. Some tools are available, but please bring GLOVES!! Other hand tools would be helpful, such as pruners, rakes and shovels, and smiles!
Service hours available for middle and high school kids.
