Maundy Thursday Worship, April 2 Soup, Pie, & Worship (in FH)—6:30 pm
Fifty years ago the Beatles and the Rolling Stones were on world tours. President Johnson was sworn in and the War in Vietnam was escalating. The space race was in full swing, the march on Selma led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act and “The Sound Of Music” was in theaters.
Thanks to everyone who took part in getting their pictures taken for the directory. As you may have read, LifeTouch gives a $5.00 coupon off for any order placed if you bring in a canned good for their Feed the Need project. One dollar of that comes back to the church. Through the kindness of a few individuals we were able to donate a can for everyone who had their picture taken and the coupon was applied. Thanks to you that did remember. If you would still like to bring a canned good please do. It’s for a good cause! There is a display in the Communication Center. Layout and proofing has begun and we hope to have a new directory for you in the spring. Thanks. -Mary Molacek
The family of Dale Heston would like to say “Thank You” very much for your visits, cards, prayers and memorials to PCM. He and his sister, Dorothy, are in heaven reorganizing things up there. No more suffering, he is ok. He loved this church, as we loved him. -Joanne Heston and family Thank you for your recent contribution to Crossroads Connection Ministries. Your generosity helps us fund our programs and services including Project LIFE. Upon release from incarceration, men in the Project LIFE program are provided with safe housing without requiring up-front deposts, assistance with employment, support for obtaining community services including medical and counseling services, and encouragement and mentoring as they transition back into community life. Know that your recent and ongoing gifts are being put to productive use in our ministry for the Glory of God. Thank you.

PCM’s Mission Partner and Hunger Ministry Partner for April is Crossroads Connection Prison Ministries. Many inmates are released from prison with the clothes on their back, minimal financial resources, and limited contacts with positive influences on the outside. Crossroads helps this transition by creating a community of faith and support through a weekly worship service and fellowship meal for work release inmates, those newly released, and their families and friends. Crossroads also provides Project LIFE, Living In Freedom Eternally, which provides safe transitional housing, weekly counseling, and ongoing mentoring for budgeting, employment assistance, transportation, and other assistance for those newly released.
We wish to acknowledge the resignation of Marge Adey and Shirley Cook from the PW Board. We thank them for their years of dedicated service. Both women have given their time and talents to this group and will be greatly missed. Their resignations, along with the passing of Dorothy Norton, have resulted in our need to do some reorganization.
PCM Women’s Book Club–April 20 We will continue to hold the current Book Club meeting on the third Monday evening of every month (Karen Matthews home, 3848 No. 200th Ave.), but will offer an additional time, which will be at noon at PCM’s “Groom’s Room”.
