LOGOS is a mid week program nurturing faith and relationships for children and youth. However, it wouldn’t happen without the support of parents and other adults. Part of the requirement of participating in LOGOS is that every family attend a MANDATORY meeting before LOGOS starts in the fall. We revisit the WHY we do what we do and listen for where God might be calling us to share our gifts. This year we are scheduling 2 meetings to choose between: Thursday September 6 at 7 pm or Sunday September 9 at 11:30 am.
Prayer Shawl Ministry. We have people who knit or crochet with prayer warm comforting shawls to be distributed to those who need a warm hug. We would receive any donations of shawls or yarn to be distributed to knitters. Anyone who needs a shawl just has to let the office know. All prayer shawls we have will be dedicated on June 17 during the Sunday service. Prayers and thanks to all who have assisted us in this Ministry.
Coffee Hour Hosts Needed – Please sign up for one Sunday if you, your family or household can help. Thank You!

Mission Moments: June 3-With glad and generous hearts: The theme of this year’s General Assembly is With Glad and Generous Hearts. This past year, a design team was established to work with the General Assembly Office to plan the 2018 event. Team member the Rev. Dr. Patricia Dutcher-Walls shares that “sitting through an Assembly can be both inspiring and tiring,” so the team “imagined ways to help accomplish the business of the Assembly, while creating more spaciousness of timing and a more humane schedule.” This includes time for mini-breaks, table discussion groups, and sessions that include visuals and sound to appeal to different learning modes. A consensus decision-making model will create a more inclusive process of discernment. When Presbyterians gather together with glad and generous hearts, much can be accomplished!
Presbyterians Sharing brings Presbyterians together at General Assembly
