Good Friday Service
For the past five years, we have been welcomed at Copley Place where we have held our Good Friday Tenebrae Service and this year, we have been invited back to worship with them again. What a great way for us to be “The Church” outside the walls of the church building?
We will be gathering together at Copley Place on April 19th at 7:00 pm for our Tenebrae Service.
word “Tenebrae” is Latin for shadows and the purpose
of the service is to recreate the emotional aspects of
the passion of Christ. We hope you will make every effort to attend this Good Friday service. Due to a lack of
parking spaces we are encouraging people to car pool
or even park on the side of the road. Directions: take
West Market St. (OH-18) to Montrose; turn left on
Springside Dr.; take 2nd right to stay on Springside Dr.;
take 1st right on to Rothrock Rd. and Copley Place in
on the right
April Prayer Gathering
Our next prayer gathering will be on
April 8th at 6:30 pm in
Sympathy of the congregation is extended to the Peg Danko family on the death of Peg on February 26th.
Sympathy of the congregation is extended to the Jessica Sowell family on the recent death of Jessica. Jessica was a member with us when we were First Presbyterian Church. A Time To Remember Jessica is set to follow the Worship Service on Sunday, March 31, 2019.
Lenten Bible Study Groups
The 40 days from Ash Wednesday until Easter are a great time to spend more focused time on our relationship with God. This year we will be using five different articles, a different one each week, designed to guide us into a deeper understanding of what God has provided for us in the suffering and death of Jesus. Meeting with others in small groups will deepen the impact of the study and also connect us to each other at a deeper level.
The four small groups will meet either on Wednesday afternoon or evening and at different times on Thursday evening in homes and at the HUB. Meetings will be led by Andy Schrum, Brenda Fisher, Dick and Laurie Hillebrand and Pat Franklin. A packet of materials will be available to you in advance at both the Ash Wednesday service and also on Sunday March 10th so that you can study ahead before each session.
Please sign up by Sunday, March 3rd on a worship fellowship card or email Pat Franklin at
[email protected] or call her at 330-928
-8765. If you intend to participate in a Thursday evening group, please indicate either the
5:30 soup and study before choir practice, or
the 6:30 bring a sandwich if you wish.
On March 6th you are invited to come to the HUB for an Ash Wednesday soup and salad supper at 6:00 pm. The supper will be chicken noodle soup, cream of broccoli soup and chicken fajita soup with a garden salad, dessert and drink. At 7:00 pm we will begin a service that will be more meditative where we will read and contemplate a passage from God’s Word as well as other readings from followers of Jesus and spend time in prayer.
Please let us know if
you are coming to the supper by
Sunday, March 3rd by calling the
church office (330-576-6608) or indicating it on the Sunday Fellowship
Card. Please come for an evening of
food and fellowship, quiet reflection,
listen to and for God and the distribution of ashes.
One Great Hour of Sharing
Started in 1949, One Great Hour of Sharing is a long standing ecumenical effort aimed at raising the funds necessary to
provide relief and reconstruction for communities in the aftermath of disaster. What started as an hour long radio appeal has evolved over the years, varying from 8 to 29 participating denominations, and has become the most participated in Offering in the Presbyterian Church (USA). The offering is received during the season of Lent and makes a difference in the world through three impactful programs: Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) which works alongside
communities as they recover and find hope after the devastation of natural or human-caused disasters. This program receives 32% of the funds raised and our congregation has
sent workers to Gulfport, MS and Jamaica, NY to work after
hurricanes. Presbyterian Hunger Program (PHP) which
takes action to alleviate and systemic causes of poverty so
all may be fed. This program receives 36% of the funds
raised; and Self-Development of People (SDOP) which invests in communities responding to their experiences of racism, oppression, poverty and injustice and educates Presbyterians about the impact of these societal ills. This program
receives 32% of the funds raised. Offering envelopes will
be available at the worship services during Lent and we ask
that you place your envelope in the offering plates on Sundays or mail them to the church. Thank you,
How can you help fund some of our deacon
projects without spending a dime extra than you
would usually spend? If you are an Acme grocery
