NEWS FROM AND FOR THE CONGREGATION --As we reported three months ago, our beloved longtime member, Marion Voorhees, passed away in Olympia, W A, at the age of 92. Marion and his wife Ethel, who were married for 71 years, were members and leaders of our congregation since the 1940s, until failing health caused them to move closer to family members a couple of years ago. We now have a time set when we will honor and celebrate his life here at Wright Church. The Memorial Service will be held on Friday afternoon, April 16, at 1:30 PM. I hope many of you can be present that day to remem ber this wonderful saint, and to greet Ethel and other family members. --Welcome to our newest member, Renate Coffey, who reaffirmed her faith and joined our congregation on Sunday, March 7. Renate has attended our church for a couple of years, having recently moved to Boise. Renate is now retired, having served in the military as an Army Medic through the years. We receive her with much love and look forward to having her active participation for many years. For your directories, note that Renate lives at 255 N. Pond, #20 - Boise, ID 83706; and her new phone number is 342-3655. --We noted with sadness the passing of one of our longest serving members, Sally Gray, who died on March 11, at the age of 96. She had been in failing health for many years at Life Care Center of Boise. Her connection with Wright Church goes back all the way to 1927, when her family joined our congregation. She lived in this area, and graduated from old Franklin High School in 1932. She was active in our congregation for many, many years. In 1946 she married Johnnie Gray, whom many of you will remember. Our love and sympathy go to her sister-in-law Mazie Archibald, and to all of her family. --We also express our sympathy to the family of Dennis Jackson, who passed away on March 2, at the age of 68. Many of you will remember that Dennis and his wife Sharyl were active members of our church in the 1980s and early 1990s, before moving away. Over the years, Dennis served Idaho State Government in several important positions. Just a few years ago, Dennis and Sharyl moved back to Boise, and his longtime friend, Governor Butch Otter, appointed him to be Executive Director of the Idaho State Racing Commission-the position he held at the time of his death. --Best wishes to a number of our members who are recovering from a variety of ailments: Nancy Hyder had a recent setback with pneumonia and spent a couple days in the hospital. She is home and getting better. Joan Marks continues to get stronger every day, and I know we'll see her in church again soon! As we write this, Audrey Beckstead is in the St. Luke's-Meridian Hospital, also recovering from pneumonia. We also send our love to Lois McCurdy, who took quite a faUlast month. Thankfully, no broken bones; just soreness and bruises. Our love and prayers for all these good people.

February 23, 2010

Dear Friends, We hope this letter finds you and your families well. Pilgrim Cove Camp was founded in1927. To this day it continues to play an important role in the ministry of our association, our churches and our church members. It is a very special place. We would like to make you aware of the current situation facing our beloved camp. The past few months the 2009 Pilgrim Cove Foundation Board has been working on an updated strategic plan. We are progressing slowly but steadily and have found we need your help. In addition to finding a new camp manager and head cook we have identified a number of other problems that we are attempting to prioritize. Many of our identified problems cannot be successfully addressed without your participation. Our financial treasurer has estimated that, without making drastic changes, our $150,000 in reserve funds will last three more years. We would then be vulnerable to mortgage default. I have included some financial history and future projections so you can ascertain for yourself just how dire our situation has become. There are two ways to deal with financial crisis: cut our spending or increase our revenues. Neither of these avenues is easy or instant. We want to assure you that we will be working diligently and Pilgrim Cove Revenue & Expense Projection creatively to create a 5-year plan that addresses our 300000 financial concerns. We hope to have it ready to present at the Fall Idaho Assembly. In the meantime here's what you 2~0000 can do to help: 200000

Donate your time at work camp May 21-22 or May 2830 in exchange for a free camp experience. Donate your talents in our new volunteer network by emailing your specific expertise and contact information. A few skills needed are cleaning, painting, web design, engineer, fundraising, marketing, grant writing, electrician, photography, plumbing, building, substitute camp manager, mailings, landscaping, food donation recruitment, camp advocate, Pilgrim Cove Foundation Board or Committee member and anything else you have to offer.

Church Women of Southern Idaho

CENTENNIAL SIGNIFICA Here's the answer to last month's question: "In 1945, one of our still-active members married the Preacher's daughter. Who was that young man? Who was his bride? And, who was her minister-father? ANSWER: A young airman stationed at Gowen Field began attending Wright Church. His name was and is George Miller. He fell in love with the minister's daughter, Gloria Elder. Her father was Rev. J. Edwin Elder, who served

the

church

from

1942-1948.

George and Gloria were married in 1945, and were husband and wife for 45 years till her death in 1990. In 1991, as you all know, George married Nancy Hatfield, and the rest-as they say-is history!

'rnrs MONTH'S QUESTION: Amazingly, over the last 50 years, Wright Church has had only three Church Secretaries (a really remarkable record!) Name those three and the years they served.


COUNTING DOWN TO 10/10/10 WRIGHT CHURCH CELEBRATES 100 YEARS! MORE REMINISCENCES OF WRIGHT'S FIRST CENTURY Looking back at the historical records, one could say that the period from the mid1940s through about 1960 made up some of the "Golden Years" of Wright Congregational Church. As it was in most other churches across America, huge attendance and growth marked congregations everywhere during that post-war period. Wright's membership during that time grew from about 200 to over 520 in 1960. And in that latter year, it was reported that average Sunday School attendance was about 250! During that time, the church was served by three very well-respected ministers: J. Edwin Elder (1942-48), Eugene "Pop" Haynes (1949-55), and Harold Becker (1955-60). Multiple Sunday Worship Services had to be held to accommodate the crowds, and space was added more than once to the church building. Activity groups by the dozen sprang to life and added to the community's fellowship and growth. One group that so many fondly remember was Pilgrim Fellowship, the youth group of that era which attracted many, many children and young people. Rev. Gene "Pop" Haynes was a terrific and inspirational leader to so many kids of that time! The PF groups were large and active, and that also translated to years of very high attendance and lifechanging experiences at Pilgrim Cove Camp. Among those still active at Wright Church who found much of their spiritual grounding and life through PF, are Jack Wenske, Tom Eubanks, Jerry Card, Jerry Lawson, Nancy Kohls Miller, Carol Hansen, Ginny Palmer Trapp, Dick Palmer, and Maxine DeMond Palmer. (Forgive us if we have left anyone out.) As we recalled last month, Wright rebuilt after the disastrous 1940 fire, and dedicated its new brick building in 1942. As (bad) luck would have it, on December 17, 1952, another fire somehow started in the Sunday School rooms, and badly damaged parts of the building and the furnishings of the chapel. In recalling that experience, George and Mabel Curtis wrote in 1960: "Once more the whole community rallied. Wright Community Church was repaired, a parlor and additional Sunday School rooms were added. A trench was dug around the building and tile put in to drain off the underground water (that had plagued the church for years, along with many other structures on the Boise Bench). Members donated their various skills in construction. The Women's Fellowship and King's Daughters took on new projects to buy pews, carpets, drapes, and equipment for all of the rooms ... Later the parsonage was sold, removed, and that lot became a parking area ... Yes, our church has had many financial as well as spiritual problems to overcome. But, this working together for a cause that we believed in has developed a fellowship that is lasting."

Notes From The Board Our God is a mighty and loving God! Jim Morrow opened our Board Meeting with a devotion reminding us that God is mighty and his kingdom is eternal. Knowing God is mighty and his Kingdom is eternal, we conducted the business of his Church. Spring is here, spring is here! With the first warm breath of spring, the Property Committee has planned a yard cleanup for Saturday morning, April 3. We can use your help. Many of you are gifted gardeners with a green thumb, other may be willing helpers. We have a beautiful Church setting; with your help it will become even more beautiful. Weare now recruiting lawn mowing teams. See Dale Shoemaker if you can volunteer, if only for one week. Thank you, Jerry Card for maintaining our equipment. Summer will surely follow spring, and with summer comes Summer Church Camp at Pilgrim Cove. We are blessed to have such a Camp. Al Busche, our Church's representative to the Pilgrim Cove Board welcomes all to participate in our camps activities. See the dates and times elsewhere in this issue. Because of the generosity of so many, each camper will only have to pay one-third of the cost of their week at camp. Thank you for your generous giving to the One Great Hour of Sharing. This is one of the many ways we can give back a small portion of what God has first given to us. 100 years of Wright. Our committee has planned many fun events. Check our calendar for a list of activities. Do you know someone with past connections to Wright? If so please invite them to help celebrate. Our God is a mighty God who has forgiven us of our sins. Respectfully Submitted, Will Patterson


Stewardship Message

from Carl Van Slyke

In Faith and in Doubt "Eight days later ... " John 20:26 The disciples told Thomas the unbelievable news that Jesus, whom they had all seen crucified, was alive! And, of course, Thomas did not believe it! He might have thought his friends delusional or mad with grief He might have thought that some colossally cruel practical joke had been played on them by the authorities. Whatever he thought, clearly he could not buy what they were selling. So he might have left them, sadly and with great despair. But we are told that a week later he was still hanging out with them. A week! Even though they were ecstatic with joy and he was deep in disbelief, he stayed with the community, and they remained available to him. Then Jesus appeared again and the one who doubted found faith. Thank God Thomas had a place and a group of people with whom he could abide in the night of doubt and sadness. They carried him through until his relationship with Jesus was restored and strengthened. Is not that still the role of the church? We maintain our buildings and hold our worship services and prayer meetings and Bible Studies and community 'events and host support groups of all kinds so that we can hold each other in faith and in doubt. We are there for each other and for our neighbors in all circumstances oflife and spirit. We give time, talent and treasure to the church not to support an institution but to nurture a community of believers and doubters faithing each other into stronger relationships with Jesus, just as those disciples did with Thomas. As Eastertide continues, remember how the church held you when you were in a Thomas week in your life. Rochelle A. Stackhouse is the Senior Minister of The Church of the Redeemer, United Church of Christ, New Haven Connecticut.

A New Building, A New Chapter [jJur

historical secondary school in Izmir, Turkey began a new chapter in its long history. Founded by our missionary

predecessors in 1878, the Izmir American

KEN AND BETTY FRANK

Collegiate Institute has now opened a renovated building. In addition to the usual classrooms and school facilities, the new building has a girl's dormitory. Thirty girls now live on the top floor enjoying modern, spacious living quarters with a magnificent view of Izmir and its bay. What's more, these girls are from more distant parts of Turkey and this means greater diversity in the student body. We, as members of a long line of Americans who were invited to work in the Izmir school, appreciate how it strongly observes its heritage. It is an institution where generations of Christians, Muslims, Jews - Turkish and foreign - have worked together for common ideals of citizenship, service, and learning. It's a legacy that the graduates are protecting and developing. And it's a legacy that all Americans who contributed to it can celebrate. Peace, Betty & Ken Frank

Ken & Betty Frank serve with the American Board in Istanbul, Turkey. They share the job of General Secretary of the American Board. They also serve on the board of the Istanbul Intetpatisn Migrant Program (lIMP).

You make the difference ... The prayers and help you provide through your local congregations make possible the work and witness of GWBAL MINISTRIES, which is supported by Disciples Mission Fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and Our Church's Wider Mission (OCWM) of the United Church of Christ.
