COME JOIN US FOR THIS JOYOUS SEASON!

March 14th Call to Prayer

March 14 Walkout

Wherever you stand on the issue of gun violence and it’s solutions, standing with our students in the wake of so many school shootings over the years is something I hope we can all do without reservation. 
It is my hope that our church can participate in the bell ringing this event calls us to. I think 4 volunteers would cover it, each taking turns ringing 17 times for a minute, which is once every 3 minutes and 50 seconds, beginning at 10:00am through 10:17am. And if we have more, all the better. We are close enough to the school that those gathered there, and the whole DT area, should be able to hear us easily.
I myself am planning to join the students and others who will participate in this event up at the school.
I have had one volunteer already for ringing the bell. Are there 3 more? If so please email me at PastorDoug@VassarFPC.org.
Please stand with our kids! This simple act will be a powerful witness that says to them “Yes, the Church cares…yes, Jesus cares.”
Shalom, Pastor Doug

Flowers for Easter Sunday

The Celebration of our Risen Lord is just around the corner! How blessed we are! Once again, we are offering you the opportunity to order a plant in memory of a loved one or to celebrate someone’s life.
This year we are offering choices: Easter Lilies, Tulips, or hyacinths. The cost will be the same: $15.00. We would appreciate pre-payment, as we must pay when delivered. The order sheet is in the parlor, and you can pay either Connie Gamet or Sue Campbell.
If paying by check, please make out to Pam Hanlin. (note, this is a change) Last day to order is March 18th. Payment is also needed by this date.

Easter Egg Hunt!

Easter EggKids of all ages are invited to the Vassar Presbyterian Church Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday! There will be a separate hunt for the younger children and the older students. This will be held on Easter morning after the Sunrise Breakfast at about 9:00 am. Come and join in the celebration! There will be no Sunday School on Easter Sunday.

Ash Wednesday Service this Wednesday!

This year First Prebyterian, First United Methodist, and Grace Lutheran will each host one of three joint services for Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday.
The Joint Ash Wednesday service this year will be at First United Methodist Church in Vassar, at 7:00pm. The imposition of ashes will be observed for all who wish to receive this sign.
We hope you will join us for this always powerful and meaningful service to begin your Lenten Journey.
PS: We also have available Lenten Devotionals on Forgiveness at the church for anyone interested in reading through on your own or in a group.
