Church News/Preview

Our christian sympathy is extended to the family of Bob Slinkard. Bob entered into his heavenly home on June 2nd. Bob had been a member of our church for almost 78 years and severed as an Elder from 1968 to 1973.

The trustees would like to thank everyone who helped with the cactic clearing and to those who provided food for their lunch, last Saturday. They were able to clear multiple buckets full of cacti from the church lawn. However a million or so cactus remain in the field behind the church and in the area around the trees where they do not mow as often.

This Sunday, June 9th, is Pentecost Sunday and we are asking the everyone wear red to remind us of the fire of the Holy Spirit. Pentecost is celebrated on the seventh Sunday after Easter and commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the 11 Disciples.

This Sunday we will also be collecting the annual Pentecost Offering. This offering helps nurtue the faith of those who are the church to come – children, youth, and young adults. By giving to this offering you are helping children, youth and young adults grow up to proclaim with the Psalmist, "O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds".

Our church will be hosting Communion Services at Glenburn and Autumn Trace on Wednesday, June 12th. We will start at Autumn Trace at 9:30 a.m. and the at Glenburn at 10:30 a.m. This is a wonderful outreach to those who are unable to attend our worship services. Volunteers are always welcome to come help with the services and visit with the residents.

The next Women's Asscoiation meeting will be held on Thursday, June 13th at 1:00 p.m. at the home of hostess Connie Hawkins. The co-hostess will be Kim Feltner with devotions given by Bobbi Vandeventer.

The Women's Association is currently collecting Box Tops for Education to help out our local Schools. Look for the Box Tops for Education on everything from cereal and snacks to office supplies. Schools can earn up to $20,000 a year by just saving and turning in these box tops. Start clipping those box tops and place them in the collection box on the narthex table.

The Trustees will be meeting on Monday, June 10th at 6:00 p.m. in the Seekers Room.


The Session will be meeting on Thursday, June 19th at 5:00 p.m. in the Library.



Update From Session

As I reported in March, Session decided at its February meeting to seek a State Supply minister rather than to continue to use pulpit supply or seek an Interim Pastor. The Elders on Session agreed that a State Supply minister is the fastest means to obtain a pastor. The Session will choose the Stated Supply minister from those suggested by the Executive Presbyter, Susan McGhee. Session can enter into an employment agreement with the State Supply for up to one year, and the agreement can be renewed if we choose. During the time we have a State Supply minister the congregation, with the approval of the Committee on Ministry, can elect a Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) to seek a called minister. Or the congregation can decide to continue with a State Supply minister. At the March meeting of the Session, the Session met with our Executive Presbyter Susan McGhee. Following her suggestions, the Session met at its May meeting with Jean Beaver from the Presbytery of Ohio Valley and received specific information and instructions. Session now is preparing a Ministry Information Form that will be submitted to the Committee on Ministry and Executive presbyter. The Elders on Session are determined to proceed to obtain a State Supply Minister as soon as possible.
