Shawnee Presbyterian Church

     

 

In response to the Health Emergency,
Shawnee Presbyterian Church has suspended in-person worship through, at least Sunday, April 19th

During my reading of information about the Corona Virus this morning I was repeatedly reminded that every outbreak of illness does come to an end. We will worship together soon. We will just need to be patient and safe until that time.

We will be offering worship through our Facebook page throughout this time.

Worshiping together in the sanctuary will still have to be pushed back. We will have Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Easter Sunday available on Facebook. It is our plans to have a big Easter celebration as soon as we are allowed to worship together in the sanctuary.

During this time Early Bird Bible Study and Prayer Group will NOT be meeting.

Meals on Wheels and AA meetings will continue to meet.  Please use an abundance of caution as to not infect others and/or to be infected when gathering.

We will be monitoring the situation through our local and national responses to make the best decisions as to when we will be able to return to normal schedule of activities.  The church office will remain open and Pastor Craig is available for needs/joys/prayer along life’s uncertain path.

Our Session will discuss and make decisions throughout this time of emergency.  Please check your email and our Facebook page for further updates.

Vonda and I will both be working through this time, but may do so from home or remotely with Spring Break upon us. The best way to reach us is by phone/text/email.

Our congregation has many people who are in the riskier category by age and/or medical condition. Please do not create an environment that would put any member of our congregation at risk. If you feel at risk for infection, please error on the side of caution and stay home.

Know too that many of the retirement, assisted living center, nursing homes are limiting visitors during this time.  In most cases phone calls and cards are still a good way to make contact with friends and family and are much appreciated.

Please let me know if you are affected by any of the changes or restrictions happening around you.  Please let me know too if you are choosing to stay home, just so I can keep up on what is happening with everyone.

In Ministry Together,
Pastor Craig

Palm Sunday

We will be celebrating Palm Sunday this Sunday and want everyone to have their own palm or palms to celebrate with us. All you have to do is print the attached coloring sheet and color it (no rules on what color our branches are.) Pastor Craig is working on a way for everyone to show their palms and faces on the big TV during the worship service. More news on seeing everyone coming later this week.

  • “Noisy Offering”
    Sunday, April 26th
    Will you drop a few extra coins in the ‘noisy offering’? It will be added to the ‘Love Funds’ at SMNW High School and Hocker Grove Middle School. You can still make ‘noise’ by adding to the ‘love fund’ jar in the office.

  • “Food When We’re Fed”
