With praise and gladness in our voice, and joy in our hearts,
we come together today to honor our God.  Our lives are complete
because of You, although not easy and sometimes difficult to face.
It is at those times that we call out to  You and You give us what we need;
a trust that with You all things are possible!
As we worship You, may we bring to our minds that You are always
present for us, in good times and bad times, and You will guide us
with Your love, out of anything we encounter.   

Bring your family & friends!

Concert & Pot-Luck Dinner -
Tom, Janet & Autumn's singing group, along with Christ Hamilton Church, will be participating in the "Our God" Concert here at PVPC on Friday, May 6.  Join us for a Pot-Luck Dinner will before the concert at 6:00.  There will be a goodwill offering taken with all proceeds benefiting PVEN.   The concert starts at 7:30. Invite your friends & family, ALL ARE WELCOME!  Please call the church office if you would like to attend, or just add your name to the sign-up sheet that is posted in Fellowship Hall.  We hope to see you there!!!

Movie Nights - We are looking to start up a committee to organize movie nights here at PVPC that would run from May through September.  If you are interested in being on this committee, please let the church office know or see Ann.

Mission & Evangelism - Our M&E group will be collecting items to send to the Dominican Republic so we can continue helping their efforts to improve themselves and their living conditions.  This is an ongoing mission that is close to the hearts of those in PVPC.  Right now we are looking for donations of Barber Shop Equipment:  combs, scissors, electric trimmers, razors, brushes etc.  They can be new or used but in good condition.  These items will be used to train young village men so they can work.
We are also collecting all kinds of Gardening Tools which again can be new or used but in good condition.  These items will be used to make village gardening more efficient.  If you have any questions, or ideas, please speak to anyone on our Missions Committee and feel free to come to one, or more, of their meetings, which are held on the 4th Sunday of each month following worship.

Keep Sunday Holy - Our church, along with other local churches is a part of the Keep Sunday Holy Team.  We want to keep Sunday morning free of mandatory events like sporting practices or games.  That way, we can choose church, if we feel it has an importance in our family.  This effort was started as a result of a letter from a teenager about how her family has been torn up over the choice of church attendance versus other “mandatory” events outside of church.  So far we have started conversations via letters to the Editor.  We manned a tent for 2 days at the West End Fair to share our feelings.  We are also encouraging other churches to join in this effort.  We consider this to be a non-confrontational, ecumenical bridge building service to strengthen families in their spiritual growth.  We also have shirts available with our Keep Sunday Holy logo on them for only $10 - see Jeff if interested.  

Crisis Meals - Deacon's are asking for meals to be prepared ahead of time and frozen in the church freezer.  Please label what the meal is and the date prepared.  This will expedite the process of getting meals to those in need.   Any questions, just call the church office.

Pleasant Valley Ecumenical Network  (PVEN) is always in need of non-perishable food items as they help many families in need in our community!  Also needed are Pleasant Valley School District approved clothing and warm weather clothing & blankets.  Please help us to keep our pantry well stocked by remembering those in need as you shop.  No donation is too small!  Donations can also be brought directly to PVEN at
279 Greenview Drive, (located at the corner of McIlhaney Road & Greenview Drive just behind the Chestnuthill Diner) on Tuesday & Friday mornings, 9:00-11:30 or left here at PVPC where we will make sure they are delivered to PVEN.  THANK YOU! 

If you are in need of assistance from PVEN, please call them at 570-992-3136.  You will need to have an appointment in order receive help & pick up goods, so please call ahead to gather information on qualifications.
