PRISM BIG WEEKEND: APRIL 28 & 29.
PRISM WORK DAY – APRIL 28. Our next Work Day will be Saturday, April 28. The primary focus will be painting, both interior and exterior, and we’ll have some other various projects, too. As always, it’ll be from 8am to Noon. Sign up today and we’ll see you then.
DAY OF PRAYER & FASTING – APRIL 28-29. Team up with others to pray together for the life of our church and the health of our mission. We will be collecting prayer requests for personal and cultural transformation during our services today and next week. During our service today we invite you to place your prayer requests (today related to personal & family transformation) in the basket when you come forward for communion. These will be inserted in the weekend prayer guide (which will be emailed) and shared with the church, so consider which sensitive details you wish to share.
Because we want to be transformed as a community, please meet with your community group, or men’s or women’s group on Saturday the 28th or Sunday the 29th before church to meet together and pray through the prayer guide. If you’re not currently connected to a group, contact Shelvy@prismchurch.com and he’ll direct you to one so you can participate with them for the weekend.
PRISM 5TH SUNDAY POTLUCK – APRIL 29. Bring a main dish to share with 4 or a side dish to share with 8. Prism will provide drinks and flatware. The Potluck takes place at Noon, immediately after the shortened 11AM service.
PRISM SEMI-ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING SET FOR APRIL 29. Our semi-annual members meeting will take place between our abbreviated 9 & 11 AM worship services. Pastor Chuck will be sharing his “State of the Church” summary, you’ll hear from our Elders and have a time of Question and Answer with them, and get updated calendar information. Everyone from our Prism Community is invited to attend, but we ask that only those who have officially joined Prism speak publicly and vote on matters before the church.
STUDENT MINISTRY PARENTS MEETING SET FOR APRIL 29. After the 11AM service and during our church-wide potluck lunch, Steven Crawford (our new Student Minister) invites parents of Middle and High School students to join him for an information meeting that will include a question and answer time. Grab your lunch and join him in the Community Room. If you have questions, email him at Steven@prismchurch.com.
MISSION INDONESIA NEEDS YOUR HELP. This summer Prism is sending a team to visit one of our missionary families in Indonesia. The Lowe family runs a basketball outreach ministry to the kids of this Muslim country. The costs of the trip include, purchase and transport of two Industrial Quality basketball hoops, basketball uniforms, children’s books and transportation (60% of the cost is flights), travel visas, lodging, food. The rough estimate of support still needed for this trip is $5,000 ($5,000 has been donated thus far). If you are able to help with a special one-time gift to this project, see Shelvy Huffman or Abbi Atchison.
11AM SUNDAY AM STUDY CONTINUES AT PRISM. The hour-long class takes place in the Fellowship Hall. This study is an overview of several tools we can use to understand the Bible better. We’ll be learning the basics of a Grammatical-historical approach to studying scripture so we can learn to see what the Bible really says. We’ll be looking at the “The Tools of the Trade.” Next week we’ll study “Applied Application.
PARKING AT PRISM. As our church grows, we need your help regarding our limited parking. We would like to reserve our back lot for families with children and for our rst time guests. Please park across the street in our lot or on the street (there is unlimited street parking on Sundays). Thank you for helping us reach our neighbors and keeping our kids safe.
GIVING AT PRISM. At Prism we do not “pass the plate,” so to speak, but we do receive offerings. Our church and its mission effort is sustained only through the generous giving of those who call Prism their church home. You can give during the service by placing your gift in the offering boxes up front. You can also contribute via our website or through our mobile giving app. If you have questions, please contact Shelvy Huffman.
BE A MENTOR! Our friends at Union Station Homeless Services have created a mentorship program wherein volunteers in the community are paired up with formerly homeless individuals who have been placed into long term supportive housing. They have lots of interested mentees, but are in need of volunteer mentors. This is a wonderful opportunity to further support our friends at Union Station, and to serve those in our community who are getting back on their feet. For more information, email Prism’s own Fred Hadra – firstname.lastname@example.org.
