Volunteers Needed!!

The Presbyterian Church members have been delivering senior mealsin Glidden on Tuesdays. We need volunteers to replace Pastor Brian's shift. Also, we will need a couple substitutes for vacations. Meals are picked up at the Glidden-Ralston School south lunchroom door at 10:45 AM. It generally takes 30-40 minutes to deliver meals to the 11 people in the Glidden community. This is a wonderful service and is only one day per week. Please contact Suzy Danner at 659-3010 if interested. Thanks!

Communion Lectionary

Many Christian Churches use a common lectionary that has bible readings for Sunday worship and special days in the church calendar. There is an old testament reading, a new testament reading, and a gospel reading. Sometimes a Psalm is included as well. For the Lenten, Easter season they have been included in the April Newsletter to assist with a daily devational for us. April-May Lectionary Texts can be read here.
Mission Emphasis for the months of March and April
One Great Hour of Sharing
The One Great Hour of Sharing is the largest Special Offering of the Presbyterian Church (USA). It goes to support three different Presbyterian ministries Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self-Development of People. In 2016, the OGHS supported projects from repairing a fire-damaged Presbyterian Church in Burt, Iowa to the construction of 40 toilets for a town in rural India. This offering is the primary source of mission funds for the Presbyterian Church (USA) and is one of the best things that we do together as Presbyterians.
