Missions for May 

The death toll from the massive earthquake in Nepal continues to rise. Nearly 4,000 are known dead and more than 6,000 were injured when the 7.8 quake struck just west of the capital of Kathmandu on April 25. The quake, the worst in more than 80 years, along with many serious aftershocks has also caused damage in parts of India and Bangladesh. 

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is providing emergency relief and short–term recovery in the impacted areas through our partner, ACT Alliance and its members who are already on the ground.  read more....


The month of May is “One Great Hour of Sharing” for missions.  This is our  opportunity to help the unfortunate all over the world.  
The needs are great. OGHS contributions go to support
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance; Presbyterian Hunger Program; and Self-Development.  Your gifts go to help relieve the suffering of people’s needs after natural disasters, from the results of wars and civil conflicts, to address homelessness and affordable housing. 
Inserts will be in the bulletin each week on
May 10, 17 and 24, and envelopes will be in the pews.

 Prayer Works ! 

  PRAYER CHAIN UPDATE - We are revising the Prayer Chain.  Those who are on the Prayer Chain will remain unless you let the Office know otherwise.  Those  who would like to help with the Prayer Chain are welcome to join.  If you are interested in being a part of the chain, you may call the Office (363-7590) and let Linda know.  

If you are not aware that we have a Prayer Chain - the chain is activated whenever one may have a need for prayer when family or friends are having surgery, those who are terminal,  to notify us of a death or accident -- or whenever the need for prayers occurs.

On May 5,  we received the most amazing display of grace, compassion and generosity from our brothers and sisters in the Cayuga-Syracuse Presbytery... They forgave their half of the mortgage and the $35,000 loan that was to be rolled into the mortgage!

Utica representatives said they will request to follow suit.

Words cannot express our gratitude.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
