In January, PRLC received a generous gift of forty-eight Study Bibles and Children’s Bibles. The Bibles were given in memory and honor of longtime PRLC member, Dorothy Rupert, who died last May. Dorothy was a lifelong supporter of education, faith formation, and the children and youth ofthis congregation. Adding a set of new Bibles to every classroom in our building was one of the 2020 goals set by Nicole Meyer, our Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministries. What a beautiful tribute to an incredible woman, and a huge gift to our community!
