Please bring all the used eye glasses and cases that you have stuck in a drawer somewhere at home. We will be collecting and giving them to the Lion’s Club to give for those less fortunate. A basket/box will be placed in the Narthex.
For almost two weeks in June, ruling elders and teaching elders, presbytery executives and national office staff gathered in Portland, Oregon, for the biennial meeting of the General Assembly of the PC(USA).
Prior to this assembly, the church’s magazine, Outlook, published several articles that focused on the Presbyterian Church as an institution, or the larger church and religion in current society, or moving from past changes into a unified future. I’d like to share some comments from those articles with you.
Editor Jill Duffield wrote of churches being dinosaurs, cockroaches, or unicorns. Dinosaurs are antiquated and out-of-touch, clunky and slow. Cockroaches survive even in hostile conditions to regroup, revamp, and renew. “Then there are the unicorns,” she writes, “that rare breed of congregations that imagine they can fly. They have the audacity to believe that through them God is changing the world.”
Our church fellowship hall may be rented for special occasions such as wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, day-time retreats, family reunions, meetings, anniversary dinners, etc.
