A Ministry of Caring

The word “epiphany” comes from the Greek word “epiphania” meaning to show, make known or reveal. It can describe a moment when you see something in a new way. During worship, we often get a new insight and experience a new or exciting way to think about a passage of scripture that we thought we understood – but we now appreciate it in a more comprehensive way. This new understanding can have a profound impact on our lives.

If you are experiencing a need to look at an ongoing experience in a new, or more productive way, perhaps a Stephen Minister might help. Having a loving, caring Christian friend by your side can be a blessing to each. Stephen Ministers have gone through 50 hours of training and they have learned to look with the heart and listen – they have helped many to look at things in a new way.

Contact Pastor Linda or any of our Stephen Ministry Leaders: Suzanne Burke, Kathe Cochrane, Jan Ettele, Carole Jean Soine, or Nora Timson for more information.

 

 

 

Habitat Painting Party

 

Saturday, January 19, the Habitat for Humanity West Valley Presbyterian Coalition is holding a “painting party” at the home of the Kabari’s, our current build sponsored by the Coalition. 

 

We will work from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Lunch will be served.  We will be painting the inside walls.

 

In order to have a count of those interested in painting, there will be a table during Fellowship Hour on Sunday, January 13.

Souper Bowl 1

Souper Bowl Sunday!

Sunday, February 3

 

Super Bowl Sunday is a day when our nation turns its attention to a football game. Millions are spent on advertising and publicity. Our hope on this day is that attention can also be turned to caring for those in need.

 

LET’S TACKLE HUNGER!

 

In 1990 a youth group at a church founded SouperBowl of Caring. People of their congregation put money into soup bowls or baskets after the service on Super Bowl Sunday and 100% of the proceeds were donated to LOCAL charities. Now is our chance to tackle hunger, not in some far-off place we would have to look up in an atlas to find, but right here in Phoenix, Arizona.

On February 3, 2019, members of your Mission Committee and volunteers will be stationed at the doors as we exit the church, ready to accept cash donations for this worthy cause. Donations will be divided between Agua Fria and Valley View Food Banks, along with the Kids’ Café in Surprise.

There will always be poor people in the land.  Therefore I command you to be open-handed toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.”  --Deuteronomy 15:10
