New Class of Officers Ordained & Installed with Laying on of “Hands”/ Ribbons
On May 15, we ordained and installed a new class of ruling elders and deacons to lead the congregation. With COVID-cases surging again, we adapted the usual laying on of hands using ribbons to connect the whole congregation in a web of prayer and support for those beginning their service. We look forward to how their leadership among us will help us stretch and grow in faith and share God’s love near and far!
Holy Humor Celebrated with Joy
On May 1, we celebrated God’s gift of humor and laughter with a “Holy Humor” worship service. We joyfully threw confetti, shared jokes (including animal jokes and makes for the young and young at heart), enjoyed the “joyful feast of the people of God” (communion), and Pastor Kendra did a tribute to one of her favorite comedians, Stephen Colbert.
One Great Hour of Sharing Offering Supports Ukrainian Refugees & Many Others
We give thanks to all who contributed to the One Great Hour of Sharing Offering in April! Our congregation collected $2,760.00 in support of the Presbyterian Hunger Program, the Presbyterian Committee on the Self-Development of People, and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (currently responding to the refugee crisis due to the war in Ukraine). Gifts to this offering each year help us share God’s love near and far!
First Pres Month of Staffing Hudson Food Cupboard Wraps Up
Once again, First Pres “staffed” with Food Cupboard with volunteers throughout the month of April to ensure clients in need of food were able to select the food items that would best meet their needs. Volunteers provided a friendly greeting for all clients, and assisted as they filled their grocery cart with food and helped carry items to their cars. Thanks as always for your wonderful volunteer efforts and support of the Hudson Food Cupboard year-round with donations of most needed food items.
