American Baptist Churches will be taking a special offering through to Easter 2018. It will be designated as OGHS-Puerto Rico and will help with the rebuilding of this devastated area. Please indicate this on your offering envelopes if you wish to give.
Lenten Supper: Once again this year, Union Presbyterian Church of Carneys Point will be hosting these gatherings. Supper begins at 6pm with a lesson from 7-7:30pm. We are asked to bring a soup to share. Please not that February 14th is our congregational business meeting at 6:30pm, so we hope you will attend the meeting instead of the Lenten Supper that week.
Sermon Series: Pastor Merrit has begun an extended series of messages based on the book, Believe: Living the Story of the Bible to Become Like Jesus. You will find the entire schedule of messages in a bulletin insert divided into three sections. Key beliefs, key practices and key virtues. This series will give us a comprehensive view of what a disciple of Jesus Christ looks like.
Missionary Luncheon: On Sunday, March 18th, the Mission Team will be hosting a covered dish luncheon in honor of our visiting missionary, Lisa Fish. Dessert, rolls, and beverages will be provided by the team. LISA IS ALLERGIC TO ALL FORMS OF ONIONS, GARLIC AND CUMIN. There is a sign up sheet on the narthex bulletin board.
VBS Volunteers Planning Meeting – March 11th
Calling all our faithful volunteers, the C&Y Discipleship Team will be holding our first VBS planning meeting on Sunday March 11th following Sunday School. This year the team is planning on doing an abbreviated program, two week days followed by a family event on Sunday. During this meeting we will give a brief overview of the program and confirm the dates/days that work best for the majority of our volunteers. Please sign up on the bulletin board if you are interested in helping out with VBS this year and plan to come to our Volunteer Meeting.
2018 CROP WALK for HUNGER
This year the Pittsgrove Presbyterian Church – Daretown will be hosting the walk on Sunday, April 29th beginning at 2PM. CROP stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty and is an inter-faith community-oriented event sponsored by Church World Service. In the past ten years over $100,000 has been raised by Salem County churches.
We hope you will consider joining us in this year’s walk. By raising funds, you will help to fight world hunger. Twenty-five per cent of the funds raised at the walk will be distributed to Salem County food pantries.
Thank you for considering this opportunity to assist in helping “…the least of these” throughout the world. Look for more information in the coming weeks.
SAVE THE DATE! On Sunday March 25th the Children and Youth Discipleship team are planning a movie outing to see “I Can Only Imagine”, the story behind the song by MercyMe’s lead singer Bart Millard. “A gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness, I Can Only Imagine beautifully illustrates that no one is ever too far from God’s love – or from an eternal home in Heaven.” Youth are encouraged to invite a friend to attend this outreach event. The C&Y team will cover the costs of the tickets, please sign up on the bulletin board if you are interested in attending this event. More details to follow.
