Dear Members and Friends,

Thanks to Brittany Davenport for her clarinet duet with Bonnie. Wonderful to see another generation so musical!

Donations to Blankets+Project will be accepted until June 2. Presbyterian Woman sponsor this mission and checks should be made to PW with notation that they are for Blankets+.

Food pantry donations still needed – particularly non-can items. 

This Sunday, May 19th – Pentecost Day.  Please wear something red to help celebrate this festive day!

Looking forward:

June 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, & 30th  – What do Presbyterians Believe?   Guided by the motto, In essential things, unity; in non-essential things, diversity; and in all things, charity, the 16th century reformers encouraged diversity and tolerance, by keeping the number of essential thing to a minimum. But what are the essential things —the big ideas and insights that Presbyterians share?  A sermon series will seek to address the Presbyterian understanding of the church, God, the sacraments, worship, and mission.  

If you would like to watch the 9:30am worship service live, please use the following link:  www.facebook.com/107154024348613
