NORTH KENT PASTORS SQUARE OFF On Thursday, October 26th, our very own REVEREND KAREN will be one of the featured contestants in this Hollywood Squares inspired event which takes place at the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. This is the 2017 FUNdraiser for North Kent Connect (aka North Kent Community Services). Reservations for tables of 10 are now being accepted. The earlier we reserve, the closer we can be to the center of the action. If you would like to contribute to securing a table, please see any elder. Come join the fun and root for our very own “square” in the game.
IT’S BACK! The NKPC Fishing Contest is back on again. Will you catch the biggest fish in 2017? Check out the poster for rules and details! Everyone is welcome to participate.
Waterers needed! If you enjoy working outside, you are invited to come and to water our new plants, especially on Fridays and Saturdays. They could use a drink on a daily basis, especially when it is over 80 degrees. The flowers and the Youth Crew Garden thanks you!
News from North Kent Connect! North Kent Connect (formerly North Kent Community Services) connects people to the resources they need. In order to help even more people in the community, it is opening North Kent Connect Store on Friday, August 4. Anyone can shop there for high-quality, gently-used clothing and household goods at affordable prices. And of course…Donations are needed! North Kent Connect is looking for donations of clothing, household items, furniture, and sporting goods. Donations are accepted Monday-Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Friday-Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. For more information visit nkconnect.org.
Dennis Stovall Resignation. It is with great sadness that the session announces the acceptance of the resignation of our beloved Choir and Bell Director, Dennis Stovall. Dennis has brought so many gifts and such a great sense of humor to the music and the community of North Kent Presbyterian as our Music Director. He will be intensely missed and he leaves with our deepest thanks and appreciation for all the superb work he has done here. Dennis encourages us to celebrate our wonderful ten years together and to let him go. A committee is being formed to seek out interested candidates for the Choir Director and Bell Director positions. Please keep both the search committee and Dennis in your continued prayers.
