2018 Capital Campaign Commitment Card

 

THIS WEEK AT ABINGTON PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

August 19, 2018

It’s about time for Sabbath?  This Sunday, August 19, as we continue the sermon series about time, we focus on one of the ten commandments that was offered as a gift from God to the Hebrew people.  We’ll see how Sabbath observance was a gift in that context and explore what it means to remember (what’s the appropriate verb here?) the Sabbath today.  Is it still a gift from God that is for us?  The scripture passages for the day are Deuteronomy 5:12-15 and Mark 2:23-3:6.  We continue with our outdoor 8 a.m. worship services (weather permitting) through Labor Day weekend.  Our 10 a.m. services are always in the sanctuary.

It might be a bit easier to get into the church buildings now.  Potholes that were in the main parking lot have been filled and repaired out of concerns for safety.  This repair should last until the more extensive work on the parking lot that will be paid for out of the capital campaign is done a couple of years from now.

Beach Day for our Youth is coming up on Saturday, August 25.  Email justinfeil4@gmail.com for information or to RSVP for the day trip.

The Session has called a Congregational Meeting for Sunday, August 26, following the 10 a.m. worship service.  The purpose of the meeting is to change Diane Fitch’s pastoral status from full-time to half-time at her request.  The Session has approved a plan for a shift in her duties, giving up most of her youth ministry duties in order to take on oversight and operation of our pastoral care and visitation ministry.  Justin Feil and Katelyn Ciccozzi will be on staff for the coming year under Diane’s oversight, guiding our youth ministry program.  Our parish associate, Stan Wherry, will be stepping back from his duties in pastoral care and visitation, with our deep thanks for his ministry in this area.  Following the meeting, there will be a reception honoring Stan Wherry’s service to APC.  During the meeting, the congregation will also have opportunity to elect an associate pastor nominating committee, which will begin its work to search for the person who will serve as APC’s next full-time associate pastor working with our youth ministry.  We are thankful for the generous gifts of the congregation that make this staffing model possible!

Anyone interested in questions about the relationship between science and faith are invited to the next Theological Book Club on Saturday, September 8 at 8:00 a.m.  We will be discussing Seven Brief Lessons in Physics by Carlo Rovelli and Quarks, Chaos & Christianity: Questions to Science and Religion by John Polkinghorne.  We meet in the pastor’s office and breakfast is provided.

Put it on your calendar: Homecoming Sunday will be September 9.  Our former pastor, Brent Eelman, will be here to offer the sermon that day and there will be plenty of festivities following 10 a.m. worship that day.

Long-term member and former employee of APC Madlyn Burtis died this past Sunday.  No memorial service plans have yet been put in place.  We give thanks for her dedication and devotion.  Please keep her family in your prayers.

This Sabbath day, come to worship, and then see what the rest of the day holds,
