Join us at Synod School 2015—July 26 – 31, 2015
— 4th of July Celebration — PW along with Pastor Bob and Kathleen are inviting PCM members to join us at dusk on the south side of the PCM parking lot. The top of the hill has truly been a secret spot to view the displays without dealing with the large crowds, etc. So if you’d like to join us, bring your lawn chairs, bug spray, snack and beverages.
Habitat for Humanity-Omahais the PCM Mission Partner for June. PCM will be participating in building a house again this year as part of the Carpenters Crew Faith Coalition. Our house location this year is at 4116 N. 21st St. in Omaha. We also know the family who will be buying our house. They are Nay Shaw and Sha Wah. They have four daughters and are excited to become homeowners. They are a Karen refugee family from Myanmar (see photo). This year’s build will start on August 15th. The Carpenters Crew is going to organize this year’s build a little differently. We are going to work mostly on Saturdays with a few Friday work days in the early build season. During June at PCM, look for various opportunities to help with the build. We will be asking for donations towards PCM’s financial pledge for the house. We will be signing up workers to help on the various build days during the fall. We will be recruiting food providers to help provide breakfast and lunch for the work crews on one or two of the build days. And finally, we are asking for your continued prayers for the work crews, the new homeowners, and the Habitat organization. Thank you in advance for your support.
Each month Deacons support PCM members through cards, greetings, phone calls, visits, and building a sense of community. If you have suggestions for Deacons, please contact Cliff Buckingham.
PCM Women’s Book Club–June 15 We will continue to hold the current Book Club meeting on the third Monday evening of every month (Home of Lynne Ilg, 5128 Raven Oaks Dr), but will offer an additional time, which will be at noon at PCM’s “Groom’s Room”. It will be a “bring your own sack lunch” and will be led by Diane Frans. Susie Hollmanwill be reviewing the book “The Invention of Wings” by Sue Monk Kidd.
You asked for it, so here it is! At the Town Hall Meeting Stewardship was asked to periodically report to the congregation the status of Giving. We are proud to report that at the end of April, Giving is at about 98.5% of projected income (about $1,645 short of projections). So, giving is mostly on target year-to-date.
