Fall Worship and Faith Formation Plans
The Religious Education Ministry Board and Leadership Council are in the final processes of evaluating some of the new things we tried in worship and faith formation this past year. A determination about the worship and faith formation plans (including worship time) for the next program year will be made by Leadership Council at its May 21 meeting. You are welcome to share any thoughts you have with Doug Adams, Moderator, or Sanna Bashor, Chair of Religious Education.
MEMORIAL DAY OBSERVANCE: The American Legion will be commemorating Memorial Day with a brief ceremony at the flagpole in the northwest corner of the Lyonsville Cemetery on Monday, May 27th at approximately 10:00 am (though we know from previous years they have arrived as early as 9:30 and as late as 10:30). Lyonsville Cemetery Board members will have complimentary snacks and beverages available while you wait. Lyonsville Cemetery holds special interest to the Legion as it is the resting place of more than 90 veterans with service ranging from the Civil War to the Vietnam War. Join the American Legion for this tribute to those who served our country in the armed forces!
Summer Worship Plans:
Between Memorial Day and Labor Day (so starting June 2), worship will be held in the West Fellowship Hall as we have been doing for the last few years. We will gather for worship at 10:00am.
In May we will be putting together Hygiene kits for Church World Service. Each kit should include one of each of the following items: toothbrush (in original package), wide-tooth comb, hand towel (15” X 28” to 16” x 32”), washcloth, fingernail or toenail clipper, 10 standard size band aids, bar of soap (in original package). CWS will provide the toothpaste. We will gather together on June 9th to put the hygiene kits together during fellowship hour.
Do you want to join the Lyonsville Prayer Chain? Want to ask for prayers? Email Nayna Byers, Chair of Pastoral Care. Prayer Chain requests can also be made through the office.
Pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House
We are collecting pop tabs to take to the Ronald McDonald House. We will have a collection container located in the fellowship hall. If you have any questions please see Cindi Fiandaca.
Box Tops for Education
We are also collecting Box Tops for Education to give to Byrne School. Collecting Box Tops is an easy way for schools to earn cash. It’s easy to find Box Tops (a list will be by the collection box). In fact, you may have some in your home right now. All you have to do is clip the Box Tops from your favorite products and put them in the collection container located in the fellowship hall. If you have any questions please see a member of the Mission Board.
