If you would like to make a dedication in memory or in honor of someone by purchasing a lilly to decorate our church for Easter Sunday, April 1st now is the time to let Carol Hawley know. Orders must be in by March 19th. This year the lillies are $15.00 each and can be taken home with you following the 10:00am service on Easter Sunday.
Reminder: Becca and Greg will be out of town the 20th through 27th of February. Linda Martin can be called if needed at:
Church: (518) 883-8086

Cell Phone: (518) 332-6673
Presbyterian Women are again going to deliver “Cheer Boxes” to the local home bound and to those in health related homes. If you know anyone that would appreciate a box of cheer around Easter, please let Carol Hawley know and we will be glad to add them to our list. Starting March 4th, there will be a box in the narthex for individually wrapped goodies used to fill the cheer boxes. We also add fruit to the boxes, so money donations are also needed and can be given to Donna Breda. The boxes will be packed and delivered on Wednesday, March 21st starting at 9:30am. In the meantime, we could use a few more shoe boxes and brightly colored or flowered wrapping paper which can be left in the mail room at any time.
Not to fear. Spring is near. That means that in a blink of an eye it will be time for our Annual Garage Sale. This year the dates are Friday, May 4 & Saturday, May 5th. We will continue with our modified sale format. Stay tuned for updates as the time draws near. For more information you may contact either Peg Schutze or Carolyn Learch. Let’s hope this ugly winter will turn into a perfect spring.
The new members class will be held on March 2nd at Bob and Linda’s
Friendship calling for February 7th has been cancelled due to the incoming snow storm. Everyone be safe out there.
The Annual Meeting is scheduled for January 28th after worship.
After worship and before the meeting, steadfast likes to provide a brunch for the congregation. We are asking for somme extra help with the menu, so if you could bring something please let Carol Hawley know. She will be in the kitchen during coffee hour today (Jan 14th) and will appreciate any offers.
With your help, the Sunday school students have filled the tube and collected $130 worth of quarters. Through the Presbyterian Mission Agency, that money has been used to buy the following: a family of chickens to provide multiple eggs per day for a family in need, school supplies for three students in a refugee camp in Lebanon, a basket of food and essential supplies for a refugee family who has lost everything in war or natural disaster. These items will make a difference in the lives of those who receive it. We are proud that the children of this church are already learning that Christ’s call includes showing love and kindness to those less fortunate.
The steadfast class will start its fall meetings Wednesday, September 13th with a pot luck supper at 6:00pm in the fellowship hall. We encourage all women to join us for the fellowship and to help support the work of the church. If you have any questions or need a ride call Pam Hanke or Carol Hawley.
On Sundays at 7PM at the Northville church, we will have an evening service from July 2nd to September 3rd. This service will be quiet and meditative. There will be a brief sermonette, and we will share the Lord’s Supper every week. If you can’t make it to Batchellerville (or just want an extra worship experience!), please consider joining us.
