There will be an important congregational meeting on Sunday, August 23, following the 1:00 p.m. outdoor worship service. The purpose of this meeting is to amend the by-laws of the First Presbyterian Church of Benton Harbor, in order to permit electronic meetings of committees, the Session, and the Congregation under certain circumstances, like pandemics.
We’ll need 23 members of the church to attend in order to have a quorum. Please come–bring a mask and a chair, and enjoy the worship service before the meeting.
On Sunday, August 16, our morning service will feature music by Jackie Baker on flute and vocals and Nancy Thompson on piano. Don’t miss these ladies sharing their gifts with the church!
On Sunday, July 26, our outdoor worship service at 1:00 p.m. will feature a message by Shirley Hagelberg Hancock, one of our Ruling Elders. Music will be led by Bob Ziebart. Come and share with us in this safe and refreshing time of fellowship! (Masks and social distancing will be practiced–bring a chair and enjoy the lovely shaded area behind the church.)
PRAYER CHAIN–We would like to form an official prayer chain for the many people who request prayer. Please sign up at the greeters’ table. It would be very helpful if you’d provide a cell phone number and an email address. See Pastor Scott if you have questions.
GIVELIFY! You can now make donations on the Givelify app, easily downloaded on iPhones and Androids.
FOOD PANTRY–Many of our food pantry clients ask for personal and home products like paper towels, bath tissue, and laundry detergent. If you are able to donate, we’d be thrilled to share those items with our clients. Cash donations are always welcome!
