Acts 2: 42-47 (NT 120)

1 Peter 2: 19-25 (NT 233)
John 10: 1-11 (NT 103)
R The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake. R Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. R Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. R

Parish Nursing Advisory Exercise Classes - Good News! We have found an excellent leader for our seniors’ exercise classes at Tri-Church. She is Jennifer Ettinger (Gwyn Ettinger’s daughter-in-law), a certified personal trainer. Jennifer will structure the class to meet the needs of participants (e.g. some may do the exercises from a seated position while others may be standing). We have discussed Wed. from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. as a possible time. Participants will need to submit a form signed by their family MD giving them medical clearance and identifying any limitations. Classes will cost $5.00/person/class and the Parish Nursing Ministry will also contribute. We will need a minimum of 6 participants to run the classes. Please sign the list on the bulletin board in your worship area if you are interested. If the time is not good for you, please state other day/time options. Thank you.

MALAWI: Glenn Inglis Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing support Glenn Inglis, the Executive Director of the Blantyre Synod Health and Development Commission. Glenn is helping the commission work with communities to develop livelihoods; care for orphans, vulnerable children and families affected by the AIDS pandemic; and prevent the spread of HIV. BSHDC is also running three emergency food distribution and recovery programs in the Balaka area – about 130 km north of Blantyre. Despite increases in food production, poverty levels remain high, with about 60% living on less than $2/day. “But,” Glenn writes, “churches grow and many people face the hardships of life with faith and hope. Our prayer is always that Malawians will achieve the quality of economic growth and political stability equal to the quality of the people who dwell in the ‘warm heart of Africa.’”
