The Penny Project
Donation jars for the Penny Project have been distributed to banks in Penn Yan. Everyone is asked to drop their pennies (nickels, dimes, quarters etc) in the jars for the benefit of the Penn Yan Backpack Program, which provides nutritious foods to needy schoolchildren on weekends. Contribution jars can be found at both Community Bank offices; at Lyons National Bank; at Five Star Bank and at the Penn Yan Diner. Collection will continue for about 8 weeks, till mid-April. Over the years the Penny Project has raised over $3000, including $483.20 in 2015 alone. Thank you for ALL that you do for this worthwhile cause. You are making a difference in a young person’s life!
A Giving Reminder

St. Paul’s Lutheran, First Presbyterian, St. Mark’s Episcopal, 2nd Milo and Benton UMC also helped us out. 100% of the proceeds go directly to Yates County Habitat for Humanity. We would also like to thank those who came to help assemble the sandwiches: Don & Kathie Lawrence, Ed & Rita Castillo, Tammy, Greg, Erik and Kyle Miller, Karen Rasmussen, Sheryl Robbins, Karen & Rev. Sanden, Jean Vaughn, Cheryl Stewart, Ralph & Jack Clancy. Thank you everyone!
Backpack Program: Need for March - Macaroni & cheese
Kids of all ages love mac ‘n cheese! It is easy to prepare and it can be purchased in the traditional boxes and in microwavable cups too! (perfect for the little ones) This provides the carbohydrates that kids need to stay fueled as they dive into homework, come home from sports practice, and it is a nice warm-up on those chilly days.
Hearts & Hands Card Ministry
Use these cards to share God’s Love! In the rear of the Sanctuary there is a table dedicated for the card ministry provided by Hearts & Hands. These cards are provided for all to use, free of charge.
Volunteers are needed to help in the Nursery.
Thank You: for Hearts & Hands
“To the thoughtful people for the many cards you have sent and the beautiful crocheted throws, I can’t thank you enough! Who would have thought that “granny squares” would be so colorful and right in style? How can I say THANKS loud enough!

That’s Not My Job
This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and NoBody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody thought Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it but, Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have.
A Prayer for Easter and Everyday
Almighty God who brings new life back again out of the deadness of the winter, we thank you for the symbol of everlasting new life you have given to us, the resurrection of your son, Jesus Christ. In him we see hope of new life in the midst of our despair over not being the people we would like to be. We pray that through your son, Jesus Christ, we might be able to die to our old life of hurts, frustration, and sin, and rise to a new life of love, joy, and peace. May we be able to rejoice with the disciples that Jesus Christ is risen indeed, and because of it, we can live also. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
