News from the Presbytery Office
Youth Event CANCELLED – Scholarship Offered
Last week we sent out notification that the Youth Event had been cancelled due to lack of interest. We would still like to connect youth in our congregations to mission with the money that was set aside for the annual event, so we are proposing a small number of scholarships that would pay the full registration fee for a member of your church’s youth group to attend the New Wilmington Mission Conferernce at the end of July. Full details were mailed last Friday to the attention of the Pastor/Youth Leader. For more information, please contact Auutmn or Debbie at the Presbytery Office. Applications are due to the Presbytery Office by June 19th and scholarships will be awarded on a first come-first served basis.
First Call Pastors Event
“Stewardship and Finances 101” will be the topic of the next event for First Call pastors at Shenango Presbyterian SeniorCare on May 29, 2009. The program starts at 8:30 AM with breakfast, followed by considering the “big picture” of stewardship and an introduction to specific stewardship programs. Call the Presbytery office by May 27th to register for this event.
In 1995, with the help of Shenango Presbyterian Senior Care (SPSC) Auxiliary and donations from many friends, SPSC purchased a 12 passenger customized van with wheel chair lift. After thousands of doctor’s appointments and special outings later it’s time for a new van. As I’m sure you know, transportation is vitally important to our residents on a variety of levels. Our residents rely heavily on the van for getting to and from appointments. Most families do not have vehicles that are handicapped accessible. So for these families, the van is a godsend. Not only does the van help residents with their physical needs, but also it helps to lift their spirits. Afternoon rides and stopping for ice cream can do wonders for them, not to mention attending concerts, plays, and going to restaurants. We need your help. We are in desperate need of a new van. Please prayerfully consider what you may be able to give to “Help Us Get on the Bus” fundraiser at Shenango. Contact SPSC at 724-946-3516 for more information.
