Have you ever been intrigued about walking a labyrinth? Here is your chance to experience this ancient practice of spiritual centering by following a serpentine path, walking slowly while quieting the mind and focusing on meditation and prayer. A labyrinth from the Presbytery will be set up in the fellowship hall and facilitated by pastor Janice. This is a great opportunity to invite a friend or neighbor. For those unable to attend that evening, the labyrinth will remain in place during the following week so that you may stop by and take your own personal journey.
THE NEW STEWARDSHIP TEAM IS FORMING NOW
Stewardship. What do you think of when you see that word? Many of us think immediately of money. It brings to mind the annual campaign when we are asked to make a financial commitment for the coming year. At some level, however, we are aware that stewardship is more than money. Stewardship is how we live out our calling as followers of Christ. Stewardship is what we do after we say that we believe.
If you are interested in joining this exciting new ministry and helping to celebrate the good news of Jesus Christ in our church, contact Mark Stevens at [email protected] or (585) 739-8452.
SUMMER ADULT BIBLE STUDY
Please join us this summer at 8:30 a.m. (before the worship service, which is at 9:30 a.m.) in the fellowship hall as we discuss first Forgiveness – Making Peace with the Past and, once that study is done, Meeting the Spirit. Both studies are by Douglas Connelly through the Life Guide Bible Studies. Our first meeting will be on June 16, 2019 and we’ll end the summer Adult Bible Study on September 1, 2019.
All are welcome and no prior bible study experience is needed.

SENIOR PASTOR SEARCH NEWS
The Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) is hard at work meeting twice each week to prayerfully read and process the Pastor Information Forms that they are beginning to receive. Information forms will continue to arrive over the next few months as pastors begin to notice our church Ministry Information Form on the Presbyterian Church Leadership Connection, update their own profiles, and send them our way. Because forms don’t arrive all at once, it is crucial that the PCN be prayerful and methodical—but not hasty—trusting that in God’s time the pastor who is the best match for us will apply and be identified. (As I, Janice, frequently tell congregations: you can get “a” pastor quickly, to find just the right one usually takes some time). Please keep our PNC and potential candidates in your prayers.
