God is Good!! All the Time!!

Looking Ahead …

  • On Saturday, February 11 at 2:00 pm., the Chancel Choir, Men’s Chorale, Ladies Trio, and the Children’s Choir will be presenting a program for Valentine’s Day to the residents of Parkway All children are welcome for singing and passing out handmade Valentines to the residents.
  • Save the date for lunch and an informative meeting to share the results of the 12 New Beginnings small group discussions on Sunday, February 19, following the 11:00 worship service. Plan to attend whether or not you were part of one of these dynamic small groups. The results will stimulate your thinking and inspire the future of Pines.

  • Women’s Retreat at Pines! Registration continues! Mary Marcotte will be our speaker on “The Seasons of Friendship”, February 25 from 8:30-2:30. Lunch will be catered and child care provided. The cost is $10. Mark your calendars now! Invite a friend!

  • Pines has experienced a slight baby boom in recent months!  As a result, new diaper changing stations will soon be added to all hallway restrooms that did not already have one (not including the Administration Area). There is also a changing table in the infant room, W8, for use as needed. Thank you, Property Committee for providing this amenity!

  • Would you like to meet a lot of people at Church? Would you like to always know you’ll share a smile and a laugh at Church? Would you like to be the person a new member sees and says, “This Pines Church is truly friendly!” Then you would LOVE to be an usher!  Some of our ushers have said, “It’s the best way to support our Church” We need ushers to be on standby if the youth aren’t available on the 5th Sunday, 11:00 service in April, July, October and December. Please contact Susan Cascaden: rcascaden@comcast.net

  • Calling all cooks! Our church’s preschool staff has experienced some tough life circumstances this school year.  To help lift their spirits, Pines will be providing lunch for all the preschool teachers on Tuesday, February 28th.  If you would like to make a dish and deliver it by 11am that day, please contact Valerie Mowell.

  • Collecting plastic grocery bags: plastic grocery bags can be placed in the Missions Collection Bin located in the Fellowship Hallway until Friday, 02/24/17.  Plastic bags collected will be used by Youth participating in PYCC Conclaves 2017 to make mats for the homeless.  Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Second Sunday Sing-Along is a great time of fellowship and fun as Tim leads us in our favorite hymns and praise songs! We hope you’ll join us.

  • New Spring Art Auction this Saturday, February 11, at The Square at Memorial City Mall, from 2:00-4:00.  Come and see some wonderful creations and support the New Spring ministry.

  • The Annual Meeting of the Corporation as well as a Congregational Meeting will be held on February 26th, immediately following the 11:00 worship service.  The purpose of these meetings is to hear and act upon a recommendation from the Session to modify the terms of call of the Associate Pastors and to act upon recommendations from the Congregational Nominating Committee.  We will also hear a report from the Pastor Nominating Committee.
