Greetings friends!

Thanks for continuing to embody Christ’s church in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Pittsboro Presbyterian will continue our online worship through much or all of May, so plan on staying home until you hear other instructions or options in future newsletters. Thank you for helping save lives by staying at home (if work allows) and staying distant from one another so that we share only Christ’s loving gospel — and not Covid-19 — with our beloved community and loved ones.

Many thanks to our staff for working hard throughout this crisis. Heather and her mother made and delivered 130 handmade cards of encouragement to The Laurels on our behalf (see below)! Alex HB is donating her pay this month to help the church. Our treasurers come in to faithfully count and deposit your generous gifts each week.

Last week, we sent 130 handmade cards to residents at The Laurels of Chatham, many of whom have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

You can send cards to:
Activity Department at The Laurels
72 Chatham Business Drive, Pittsboro, NC 27312

Join Spirituality and Personality Seminar

Evan invites you to join an interactive online seminar on the Personality and Spirituality material he learned over 15 weeks of continuing education in 2018-2019. Simply visit this page and you can 1) watch a video about it 2) read a book about it and 3) sign up to join a follow-up zoom call discussing the material. Evan is also inviting leaders in our presbytery to join with an emphasis in self-care, so please feel free to share this with anyone you know who might be interested.

Thanks for your giving!

Thanks to your generous giving, our congregation continues to show glimpses of God to the community without reductions in staff and continues to provide many of our services. 12 have pledged, 6 have given online (some recurring), 5 have given their entire pledge for the year already and most of you have helped us financially this year. Thank you so much for giving your prayer, money and support as you are able! Thanks also to those experiencing financial hardships who continue participating and lifting Christ’s ministry up in prayer! Click below to read more specifics.

Mother’s Day: Foods that Connect us to Mom

In preparation for Mother’s Day on May 10, 2020, please send in pictures, stories and video accounts of favorite foods that have a special connection with your mom. You can share recipes, pictures, cooking videos, finished products…but most important: share a little story of how this food served as a connection with your mother. You can send this stuff to Evan by May 6th so we can share it in our worship service video on May 10th.

Note / Update from PC (USA) Mission Co-worker, Karla Koll

 

“Grace and peace to you in these difficult days. I hope this note finds things well with your congregation. I am glad to be able to follow you on Facebook. Back in February I wrote a letter to the mission committee to thank your congregation for your support during 2019. So much has changed since I wrote that letter, but God’s mission continues.”  -Karla Koll
