Today is Girl Scout Sunday. The beginning of Girl Scout Week, which includes the organization’s founding day, March 12th, we recognize the Girl Scouts in our congregation.

Hear ye! Hear ye! Help for the hearing impaired Did you know that SHPC has hearing assist devices that will make the service sound crystal clear? Now you will be able to hear every word as if it was spoken directly to you. Please see our sound techs in the Sound Room. Cell phone etiquette Please remember to silence your cell phone during the worship service. And remember—unless you are texting God, those text messages can probably wait till the service is over.

Please check the area by the basket in the narthex as well as in the kitchen for your belongings... both areas are overflowing! Current contents will be donated to Goodwill in two weeks. 2

Please take a moment to fill a name tag out (or bring yours from home). This is a great way for you to meet someone new and make people feel welcome.

true high school To my fellow parents of high school students, I’m Derek Fisher. Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing with you some of the reasons why I am so thankful my daughter attends true High School on Sunday evenings and why I hope you’ll encourage your child to attend as well. No matter where they are in their spiritual journey, attending true High School gives your child an opportunity to explore and grow in their faith through programs like the Student Alpha course — which they are currently working through. It’s a time where they can learn, talk and ask questions that will them help solidify their foundation of faith in an open, safe, and fun environment.

SHPC Mops is going strong! All moms of pre-school aged children are invited to join. We meet from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 most 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month. Meetings include a brunchstyle breakfast, discussion and the following:
