Making Worship Happen
WELCOME GUESTS! If you are a guest today, know that we are happy to meet you, and hope you will be blessed by the worship service and our fellowship time afterwards. It is our goal to show you the love and the hospitality of Christ. Welcome! Please note that childcare volunteers are provided in our wonderful nursery for all of those who are under 4 years old!
OUR FLOWERS Our flowers this morning are in celebration of David McIntyre’s 18th birthday on 5/11. So proud of you! Love Mom.
COMMUNION SERVERS. If you would like to be considered for a Communion Server for the summer please let Mike Nelson know. The only requirement is that you have been or are now an elder of our church. Summer Communion dates are: June 2, July 7, and August 11. Four persons are needed each time and a short how-to instruction is also available!
GOING to CAMP! The Greenwood tree in the narthex is leafing out, and we need more of your green dollars to bring it to full growth and to send our kids to camp! Contribute to the NKPC Greenwood Scholarship Fund today!
NEW MEMBERS: If you are interested in or have questions about becoming a member of North Kent Presbyterian, Pastor Karen would love to have a lunch conversation with you! Email Pastor.firstname.lastname@example.org to set it up. WELCOME!
GRADUATION SUNDAY! Sunday, May 19, please come to recognize the achievements of our graduates: Elisa and David from high schools, and Jennifer, Lauren and JP from colleges, and share in their excitement for their next adventures! Are there any others we have overlooked?
OPEN HOUSE Everyone is joyfully invited to Elisa La Barge's Graduation Open House on Friday, May 24th from 5 - 9 pm. Food and festivities are being planned for Pastor Karen's backyard. Contact the church for more information.
CHURCH GARDENS. It is 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.
GOT PLANTS? Chet Knox is seeking the donation of your extra plants this spring to NKPC. Please contact him with your questions or just hand him your extra plants.
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.
SUMMER MUSIC: If you would like to provide special music for a summer worship service, please contact our Music Director, Brian Beecher.
NORTH KENT CONNECT is looking for women to become volunteer listening partners for the women entering their THRIVE program. See the THRIVE flyer for details.
40 FOR 40. Lent is past, Easter is past, but you can still contribute to the 40 items/40 days campaign. This Sunday is the last opportunity to donate good condition business appropriate clothing to the Women's Resource Center or North Kent Connect. So please take a last look in your closets and see what you don't need that might benefit others. The Mission Committee will work on sorting and delivery next week. Many thanks for your contributions!
?!QUESTIONS FROM THE CONGREGATION!?
Our 2019 Summer Sermon Series will again feature questions from the congregation. If you have something you have always wondered about or if you have a question about something spiritual, now is the time to ask! Listen for a sermon on your topic on Sundays between June 16th and September 1st. Every question thoughtfully considered, even the "heretical" ones. Just email Pastor Karen at: email@example.com.
This Week of May 12, 2019 through May 19, 2019
NKPC Memorial / Funeral planning booklets are now available in the narthex. Please fill one out and drop off a copy of your forms to the church.
PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR SUMMER WORSHIP TIME OF 10 AM BEGINS ON JUNE 2ND.
