THE 2019 NKPC FISHING CONTEST is now accepting entries!
We will be using Michigan's "Master Angler" records to score our fish and to compete against each other for a $50 prize and very important bragging rights! Submit your photo of your catch next to a tape measure to enter the contest. Multiple entries encouraged. Everyone is invited to participate. Entries accepted until October 20th.
PLEASE NOTE: THE ADULT 9:15 DISCUSSION GROUP IS CANCELLED FOR EASTER SUNDAY MORNING, BUT WILL RESUME THEIR CONVERSATIONS NEXT WEEK.
ANNUAL REPORT CORRECTION: Please note that the NKPC 2018 annual report regretfully neglected to include the wedding of Virginia McIntyre and Taylor Longoria on Saturday, May 26th, 2018. (Please watch for a label to insert on page 19 to correct this omission.)
CHURCH GARDENS. The snow IS going to melt and it will be time to start gardening. We are in need of someone to work with Chet Knox to co-ordinate a watering/weeding schedule for the landscaping around the church. Also, it has been suggested that the gardening space created by the youth crew could become a learning lab with experienced gardeners sharing their expertise with newbie gardeners. If you are interested in this opportunity, please let Sally (facilities) or Jake (elder for youth) know.
LPGA TOURNAMENT VOLUNTEERS! The LPGA tournament will soon be upon us, and Presbyterian Women need all the men, women, and Youth Crew volunteers we can get to man our parking lot in the 2nd week of June, Thursday through Saturday, June 13, 14, and 15. Sign up schedule posted on the Narthex bulletin board. Laura Weld is the best person to ask for information. Money raised will help fund Camp Greenwood scholarships. Thank you from your Mission committee.
