PENTECOST, IN-PERSON Outdoors at PVMA
Sunday. May 23rd
Friends, it has been over a year since we gathered in person for worship. Now, thanks to the dual blessings of warm weather and effective vaccines, we are ready at last for a reunion of our beloved community! Join us for a safely distanced, in-person, outdoor worship service, May 23rd at 10 am. (Note: a digital worship service will also be available as usual, for those unable to attend — and in case of rain!) Stay tuned for more details….

From the Mission Committee
This month’s non-perishable food collection will be held next Tuesday, May 11, at the church from 1 – 1:30. Bette Schmitt will be there to receive your donation!
Thank you, First Church, for your extremely generous response to our call for donations to cover this month’s Community Meal. We are no longer in need of funds and due to your generosity, we now have surplus funds, that will be held for a future good cause(s).
BE A PART OF OUR MINISTRY
