"When you forgive, you in no way change the past - but you sure do change the future".
Bernard Meltzer
Worship with us!
April 25th, the Fourth Sunday of Easter. We will return to our 9:30 a.m. Zoom worship to learn about the Good Shepherd’s willingness to lay down his life for the sheep. We will consider what it means to lay down our lives for one another by the example of sharing our wealth with any sibling in need.

Creating Community is an email devotion to guide your preparation for worship for the following weekend. 

Imagine how much more clear and relevant God's Word will be if you have had an opportunity to read, reflect, and dwell in the Word prior to worship. You may do this devotion as an individual, with others, as a family, or over Zoom as a small group. 

Each devotion arrives on Monday and can be engaged in anytime before Sunday's worship. 
The devotion includes three simple steps:

1. Read through the text (provided)

2. Respond to the questions (select one of the sets of questions from the three possibilities )

3. Offer a Prayer (one is provided)

Fundraiser For the Daily Bread Food Pantry Update

We surpassed our goal of $500 for the Food Pantry. We actually made $567.64 on the donated items and received an additional $50.00 for over 1500 pounds of housewares, called “hard”.  Savers also gave us $75.00 toward the rental of a truck. This amount, plus the $500 donation from a generous member will equal $1,117.64, for the Food Pantry. There is still time to increase this amount by adding your gift today!
We thank Nan and Ken Carlson, Monica and Russell Walsh and many others for making this service project possible. Please read more about this effort in the May Blueprints.

Here is an opportunity to offer Christian service to members of PoP.

Sign up below to provide food/a meal for Maimo and Gene Passarella as they both are convalescing at home.
