GREETINGS

Did you know that those words "do not fear" appear in the Bible 365 times? God knows we need that daily reminder, especially during this most difficult time. We know and trust that God is with us. We also know and trust that we will remain connected as a church family as best we can in these difficult days. 

Let us uplift each other in prayer! May the peace of God which passes all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and may the blessing God almighty, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, remain with you always. Amen.

GIVE
Support the PW Birthday Offering

This year, Presbyterian Women National and International are celebrating a century of the PW Birthday Offering. The offering, which takes place each spring, gives women a tangible way to celebrate the blessings in their lives. Each year, it funds up to five projects in amounts of $75,000 to $150,000. Grant requests come from a variety of national and international sources, and this year’s two recipients are Mission at the Eastward's (MATE) McCleary House Transitional Housing in Farmington, Maine, and Iglesia Presbiteriana de Lares' Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand in Lares, Puerto Rico.

Offering envelopes are now available in the pews. Please give generously to this outreach effort, which has been improving the lives of those in need for 100 years.
