Spring is here! Finally we’re seeing flowers pop though the ground and buds bursting out on the trees. Along with that come some springtime chores around the church. Our church is just like your house - it needs to have a good sprucing up once in a while. Our annual Spring Cleanup Day will be Saturday April 23 from 8 to noon.
Please come and join us. If you can’t be with us all morning, come when you can.
We’ll have a long list of chores to keep us all busy. We will be cleaning window screens, windows and pews, vacuuming pew cushions, washing walls, and cleaning light fixtures. Although we will be concentrating on inside work, there may be some yard work if the weather is nice. There is work in the Sanctuary, Fellowship Hall, the Education Building, and the Youth and Community Center. There will be work and fun for everyone.
Doughnuts and juice will be provided. Please bring extra buckets, scrub brushes, cleaning rags and hand held vacuum if you have them.
We will have a signup sheet in the Narthex and in Fellowship hall on the first three Sundays in April, or you can call the church office or Dave Doughty 724-457-1088. If you can come join us, please sign up for some work, exercise, fun and fellowship.
The Sunday night small group meets in the library from 7:00pm- 8:30pm beginning Sunday April 3rd through May 8th. We will be doing a study by Mark Ashton entitled "Jesus' Response to a World Gone Wrong" (If there is a God and he is good, then why doesn't he do something about the evil and suffering in the world?). We honor the time and commit to each other and have a good time. Everyone is welcome (just let Ann Mizer or Gladys Sanderbeck know if you can join us!)
The Monday night small group meets from 6:30pm to 8:00pm and is currently doing a Beth Moore video study of the Book of James. Donna Kovatch and Pam Charles are the leaders.
The Membership Committee is looking forward to offering a New Members Class in the spring, anticipating that on Pentecost (May 15th) the new members would join our church family. The purpose of the class is to learn about Sharon Church and ways to engage in the church, to get to know other people joining our fellowship, to explore your Christian faith and what it means to be a member, and to learn about the Presbyterian denomination as well. If you are interested in participating, we are considering the options of Sunday mornings 9:00-9:45 before worship on April 17, 23, May 1 & 8 or on Tuesday evenings April 19 & 26 from 7:00-9:00PM. Please contact the church office (412-264-7400 or firstname.lastname@example.org) and let us know which time you would prefer.
