April showers bring May flowers. What did the May flower bring?…. The Pilgrims! (Awe, you knew that one already?!?!) This May does bring a number of events that remind us that we are all part of the body of Christ, the One Church of Jesus Christ:

On Sunday, May 6th, Pablo and Jan Cruz will be leading us in worship. Some of you already know them because you have had the blessing of going to Chiapas, Mexico and being a part of their mission work there! All of us will get to hear about their exciting ministry now. We will even continue our conversation after worship over a Potluck Dinner—so please bring a dish, and let’s enjoy some table fellowship together!

Some of you may even be feeling called go to Mexico on a mission trip! You are invited! Because of our connection with all other PC(USA) churches, we work together to serve. And First Presbyterian Church, Boone is doing just that! First Pres. is extending an open invitation to any member of NWPC to join them on a Mission Trip to Chiapas, Mexico to work with Pablo and Jan Cruz on July 21-29, 2018! Yes, this summer! Construction, VBS, Water Filtration, and much more! YOU are needed! If you are interested, please speak to our Mission and Outreach Elders: Bill Joyner, Kyle Barger, and Devin Lyall. This sign up is NOW, and some scholarship money is available to each NWPC member going! But spaces are limited! Call now!

Another way that we are celebrating our being the one Family of God is by going on our All Church Family Retreat together May 18th-20th. Come along, and join in the fun and fellowship with your church family.

Still more…. the Confirmation Class joining, and High School Seniors recognized!

So, what do these May flowers bring? Gratitude! Abundant gratitude for these and all the ways that we celebrate being God’s family, God’s own church together!

Blessings,

Susan

Greensboro was recently struck by a tornado; the extent of damage is becoming more apparent. Three elementary schools have suffered damage serious enough that their students will be moved to other schools to finish the year. Others schools and the homes of too many people have been damaged as well. Diane Moffett, pastor of St. James Presbyterian Church in Greensboro, has requested contributions of water, diapers, baby food, tarps, and plywood for the Interactive Resource Center and the Mustard Seed Clinic.

In our connectional system we seek to be of support to one another in time of need.  Remember Greensboro, the needs of neighbors there, and sisters and brothers of congregations affected.
