To the Ladies of PYFBC-

Thank you so much for the beautiful afghan. It will keep me toasty warm and cozy. It took many fingers to complete it and I appreciate it very much. God Bless you all. Love to all, Kathryn Warren


Church Historian

Do you love history? Do you enjoy preserving the bits and pieces of history so they aren't forgotten or lost? If so, then we have an opportunity for you! Richard Johnson is looking for someone to help out/take over the position. There are pictures, newspaper articles and albums that need to be cared for. If you are interested call the church office at 536-9821.


Lost & Found

A small key was found among some pennies that were donated. It can be claimed at the church office.


Mission  Nugget:

Next week, on Mother's day, we will be joining some 8,000 congregations and groups across the U.S. as we hold Church World Service Blanket Sunday, raising funds to help people in need around the world. For over 60 years, Church World Service has provided: *Blankets, tents, food and other emergency supplies in the wake of a disaster

*Tools and seeds for refugees returning home to replant their fields

*Wells for families living in drought prone areas giving clean, safe

   water to drink and irrigate crops and gardens

*Literacy training and microcredit for women struggling to realize   their potential.

Next Sunday, May 12th, we will receive the CWS Blankets+ offering. Please give thankfully.



Mission Income on April 28th was $83 for the budget and $7 for the Church World Service Blanket + Offering. Thank you. Last year you gave enough for 88 $5 blankets. Thanks to the generous Easter Offering, we were able to pay $900 in United Mission Basics and $250 for Camp Scholarships; $100 for Christmas for the Needy; and $200 for the Rushville Health Center.

Office for the Aging

In 2012 we served 27,483 meals to 158 people. Pro Action of Yates County cannot serve our customers without the help of our volunteers. You are the Heart and Soul of our program, providing so much more than a meal. Volunteers provide the warm, human contact our seniors need and may be the only contact that senior has that day. Whether you have a few hours one day a week, can volunteer every day, or can only work a few hours a month, your assistance is needed. Criminal background and driver's license check is required. Mileage is paid. Call Stephanie Bates at 536-5515 for more information.
