Presbyterian Women’s Memorial Service and Life Membership
Please join through live stream (on our website here) for the Presbyterian Women Memorial Service and Life Membership Awards on Monday, November 2 at 6:00 p.m. The Memorial Service is an opportunity to honor the women in our congregation who have passed away during this past year. The Honorary Life Membership Awards were established to honor faithful service to the women’s organization and to the church. Life Membership Awards are given annually to two Presbyterian Women in our congregation. Catherine Matthews and Barbara Roberts are working together to have a special service this year in our chapel. If you are having trouble with the live stream, please let us know so we can help you. You will not want to miss this special evening.

Current Study: Into the Light, Finding Hope Through Prayers of Lament by P. Lynn Miller with suggestions for leaders by Dee Koza. The 2020-2021 PW/Horizons Bible Study revives lament as a proper theological response to the difficult situations of our world. One of the foundational points of the study is that, in scripture, lament usually leads to hope. After crying out to God, the one who laments remembers God. And while that doesn’t fix things in the moment — the injustice, the loss, and the wrong still exist — the one who laments is strengthened to face the world and to hope. When we lament, we move from suffering to faith. In our faith there is hope. We lament in order to hope. Recovering lament may be one of the church’s most timely gifts to the world.
