Around the Church for October 27, 2021

LIVE STREAM Worship to RESTART this Sunday
Thanks to our new relationship with LiveControl, we are finally able to offer live streaming of our Sunday services again! Service can be accessed through our website, pinestreet.org, or on Facebook. Archived services are also available on YouTube.

If you have not been able to access our services over the past month, thank you for your patience as we have worked through system bugs and personnel changes. Our live test of the system was a success and we are now set to be able to broadcast our services again!

Hornung’s True Value Hardware – Covid-Fighting Donation
Our neighbors on Second Street, Hornung’s True Value Hardware, in cooperation with the True Value Foundation, have made a donation of germicidal cleaner, hand sanitizer, and KN 95 disposable masks to Pine Street Presbyterian Church and Downtown Daily Bread. These items will be used to help protect our staff, members, and clients against Covid-19. Thank you Hornung’s!

Adult Forum – Week 3 of 4-Week Series on Inclusivity
Our most recent Follow Me curriculum emphasized the church’s ministry of hospitality and welcome. Our new four-week series of programs will equip us to better understand and show hospitality to our LGBTQIA+ neighbors.

This evening we will be watching the second half of the Connecting the Dots webinar offered by More Light Presbyterians. Our guest presenter, the Rev. Alex McNeil, Executive Director of More Light Presbyterians, a national organization working to assure all are welcome in the PC(USA), will Zoom in with us again on November 3 to lead our final discussion of the series and respond to your questions.

SURVIVING THE HOLIDAYS – Saturday, November 6 10:00 am – 11:30 am
This time of year, and especially this year, many of us are experiencing a sense of grief or loss as the holiday season approaches. If you are grieving the loss of a loved one, the holidays this year may be particularly difficult. Surviving the Holidays is a program designed to give you comfort, coping skills, and hope for the busy weeks ahead. This clergy-led event includes a 45-minute video presentation followed by group conversation. Surviving the Holidays is sponsored by the Deacons and Stephen Ministers. It is open to the community, so please save the date and tell your neighbors and friends.

This is an “in person” event held in the church’s Fellowship Hall with masks and distancing required. A sign-up sheet is available at the Welcome Center or call 717-238-9304.
