Mother’s Day Cards

Presbyterian Mission Mother’s Day cards will be available on Sunday, May 4th.  Sales proceeds will benefit “Healthy Women Healthy Families,” a year-round ministry of PC(USA) World Mission and Presbyterian Mission.  This ministry supports programs of Presbyterian partner churches overseas to promote the health, education, and development of women and children and alleviate poverty.  Programs include literacy training, primary and non-formal education, women’s leadership development, health education, water and sanitation, prenatal and obstetrical services, childhood health screenings, immunizations, and feeding programs and food-security endeavors.  See Ruthe Anne Christ if you have any questions or any members of our Women’s Circle.  Thank you for your support!

Special Thanks!

A special thanks to all the behind-the-scenes workers who made this past Holy Week and Easter celebration an inspiring and blessed event; Palm Sunday’s secret angels, the power of the Tenebrae Service and then the beauty of Easter morning.  Thank you to all who worked long hours to make this happen.  This year’s Pancake Breakfast was a huge success and was said to be beautiful and delicious – many people working hard made this Easter a memorable one – thank you all!
