In addition, we will have a booth at the Holy Smokes Mission Fair on May 19th and we’ve asked Joan Bertino, the principal from Williams Elementary, to come meet you all. Visit our table, and while you’re there sign up to mentor, be a prayer partner, or help out in the school office or garden. Interested but can't make it to our potluck or the Mission Fair?

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 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. Thanks!

Our guests are coming! IHN (Interfaith Hospitality Network) guests are families with children who, because of a crisis situation in their lives, have lost their homes. The program provides for them to live at Austin area churches while they find housing and get back on their feet.

During the week of May 5th — 12th (THIS WEEK!), four IHN families will live at our William Cannon campus and will be fed and sheltered by SHPC volunteers. This is your opportunity to help these families through this time of crisis. Tasks performed by hosts (SHPC folk and members of Faith Presbyterian Church and Abiding Love Lutheran Church) include: Move-in: Sunday 12:30 p.m. Dinner Preparers: 6 to 7:30 p.m. Overnight Host: 8 to 7:15 a.m. Evening Host: 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Weekend Breakfast Servers: Sat 8 to 9 a.m.; Sun 7 to 7:30 a.m.

Saturday Hosts and lunch: several shifts Supply Donors: all week Transportation Volunteers and Linen Washers. Move-out: Sunday 6:30 am

Burke Center Clothes Closet — Lend a Hand


SHPC has a partnership with the Burke Center, just down the road in Driftwood TX. Join one of two teams of 3 - 5 volunteers who commit just 3 hours, 9:30 AM – 12:30 noon, on the 2nd or 4th Saturday of each month. This is the kind of work where the hands are busy while the rest of you develops in relationship with other SHPC folk. It’s a low-key way to connect while also lending a hand! To volunteer, contact Peggy Fetzer (512 619-3291, or Ruth Ann Floto, (512 674-2379,


it’s PrimeTime!

Our sharing goes farther and wider than just the SHPC library, too. Dr. Bill Lindsey, a group regular, has been forwarding information to a gentleman in Bangladesh, Yami Khan. Bill asked if we would mind sharing our studies with Yami, which we’ve been doing ever since over email. Not long after we started sending him our notes, he informed us that he forwards them on to his friends. Talk about a long range missionary effort! Thank you, Dr. Lindsey.

● NO Fellowship Lunch Bunch will be held in May. See you in June! ● ASSOCIATION OF RETIRED CHRISTIAN MEN meet every Thursday at 10 a.m. in the library at William Cannon. Join us! At the ARCM each week, we relive portions of the previous Sunday's sermon, study additional theological findings concerning scripture and enjoy each other's fellowship. We enjoy SHPC coffee and local cookies while we gab. Now, this may sound like a gab fest — please don't get the wrong impression! Much of our time together is spent in serious consideration of our faith as we seek to reaffirm it each week. We are eager to share with each other and are enriched by others thoughts and prayers.

If you are considering joining into such a group as this, please know that you are always welcome. You are always invited to drop in to hear our discussions and join in fellowship with us regardless of your retirement status. You may hear dissenting opinions about an issue, but don't let that scare you off. Everyone is encouraged to share in this group.
