Pastors Corner

MARCH 2018

There is something about the month of March that I love and it is this; when March comes, spring is right around the corner. And with Spring comes warmer weather, garden planting, grass mowing and all the other things I love to do outdoors. And when spring comes, my indoor projects will be put on hold for the hot and humid days of summer.

The last week of March is Holy Week. Maundy Thursday service will be held in the Social Room on Thursday, March 29. Good Friday Services will be held in the sanctuary on Friday, March 30. The Easter Egg Hunt is Saturday, March 31 at 11 AM on the church property. 


Easter Sunday worship begins with a Sunrise Service of Worship at the St. Paul’s Cemetery. The service starts at . The Second Service on Easter Sunday will begin at 8:45, the third starts at 10:25. Breakfast will be served from 7:30-9. 

There are a lot of things happening in March that center around our projects in Ghana.  

  • Our Ghana book container will be shipped by the first of April. We have extra space in the container that needs to be filled. To that end we are collecting children’s clothes, infant to pre-teen. Your donations of clothing should be new or gently used and clean. Donations may be left at the church office. 
  •  Also for our trip to Ghana we will be making new born baby gift package. We are seeking donations for baby blankets, wash cloths, soap, powder, lotions and baby wipes. We will be giving these gift packages to mothers of newly born babies at the hospitals we visit. 
  • We are seeking medical supplies, which means, anything you find in your medicine cabinet at home besides prescription drugs.(Examples are: Tylenol, Ibuprofen, cough remedies, lotions, suave, bandages, and children’s medicine.) Please ask your doctors and other medical professions if they have a surplus medical supplies they would like to donate. 
  • We will also be taking school supplies Any of these items donated by March 18 will be loaded into the container. We will still accept donations after the container has been shipped. These items will be packed in our suit cases.
With March comes the wind and it was the wind that gave birth to the church. May we catch the Spirit of God as it moves in and through us as we are the Body of the living Christ. Hold on, March is here!! 



God’s blessings,

Pastor Pat
