Peace be with you!

Are you ready for some acronyms? The Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) is currently reviewing mission studies and drafting the Ministry Information Form (MIF) for session and Presbytery approval. Once approved, the MIF will be entered into the PC(USA) Church Leadership Connection (CLC) database, and matched with prospective pastor candidates’ Personal Information Forms (PIF). The MIF is the “help wanted ad” that will catch the eye of pastors searching for a new call. This PNC is motivated and highly competent. They are serving you well. Please keep them in your prayers.

This month members of the Mission Council and the Youth Ministry Committee are reading the book Toxic Charity, by Robert Lupton. The Rev. Adan Mairena, the pastor of West Kensington Ministries, recommended this book to the Rev. Diane Fitch.  Toxic Charity issues a powerful call to preserve and promote the agency and dignity of those we would hope to serve with our charitable and mission endeavors. Lupton advocates limiting one way giving to emergency situations, promoting the capacity of the poor, subordinating self-interest to the needs of those being served, listening closely to those we seek to serve, and “Above all, do no harm.” (p. 9) I am finding this book challenging!

Finally, I encourage you to join us in worship either at 8am or 10 am on May 15th, the Day of Pentecost. Here at APC it is also Youth Sunday, and our young people will be leading worship at both services. At the 10am service we will welcome our confirmands into church membership, and last but not least, we will celebrate the day at Fancy Fellowship in the Parish Hall, immediately following the 10am worship service.

Blessings,

Interim Pastor Leslie
