Wednesday Night Fellowship
Please join us for Wednesday Night Fellowship on April 18th, when we will be learning about local opportunities to participate in long term health research. Our own Paul Campbell will be sharing details about his work and involvement with Project Baseline, a comprehensive health study with the goal of learning more about disease prevention.   Menu: spaghetti, salad, fruit, dessert
S & D Sunday School Class
This Sunday the S & D Sunday School Class, which meets in the Fellowship House parlor, will be starting a new study of "The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World," a work co-authored by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The study runs until June 17th. Everyone is welcome! All ages!
Todd and Betsy Hobbie Scholarship Fund
One of the funds overseen by the Presbyterian Women is the Todd and Betsy Hobbie Scholarship Fund, which supports education of health care workers in the Congo where Todd and Betsy served as missionaries. In addition to the Presbyterian Women's commitment to this fund, donations from the congregation are encouraged and accepted throughout the year to support scholarships for the Bulape Nursing School. It costs $200 a year to attend nursing school, and students go for four years. Please keep this worthy endeavor in your thoughts and prayers.
