CONGREGATIONAL GATHERINGS Sunday, Feb. 24 and Sunday, March 3, 9:40 a.m.
Come share your perspective on our senior pastor search. Rescheduled from earlier, snowed-out date.
LENTEN STUDY March 10, 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. (runs for six weeks)
On Sunday, March 10, a six week Lenten Study will begin in the fellowship hall. The book Journey to Jerusalem by John Pritchard explores the Gospel of Luke by looking through the eyes of the disciple John. The Journey to Jerusalem follows Luke’s account from Luke 9:51, as Jesus sets his face to go to Jerusalem. The study provides weekday readings for Lent from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday, along with a poem for each Saturday. On Sunday, the class will review scripture passages and discuss questions. If interested in this selection, please contact Lisa Chorman at [email protected] or 585-223-1901. I will try to distribute the books prior to Ash Wednesday (March 6) so discussion can begin March 10.
NEW MEMBER CLASS March 10, 17, and 24, 9:50-10:35 a.m.
Do you attend PPC regularly? Have you ever thought about becoming a member? Are you curious about what becoming a member entails? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, please contact Kristin Cuccia at [email protected] or Sandy Munson at [email protected].
While it is ideal that you (and your family) attend all three sessions, it is not required if your schedule will not allow. There is no obligation associated with attending these sessions–if you choose not to join the church at the end of them, that is perfectly okay. We welcome anyone who is interested to come and find out more.
COMMUNITY WELLNESS SERIES #1: Medicare 101 Feb. 23, 1:00-2:00 p.m.
This is the first of a series of community wellness events. This one will be held at our church. Refreshments will be served, and presenter Deborah Ilic, Independent Medicare agent, will discuss what we need to know about navigating the sometimes-confusing world of Medicare. Please invite your friends and neighbors! Also, please let the church office know you are coming. RSVP 223-1203
MARK YOUR CALENDARS for Community Wellness Series #2: The Opioid Crisis, Thursday, April 11, 7-8 p.m. Details to follow.

Please pray for this group as it begins its important work.
