worship & youth church @ 10a Sunday
Come Study the Book of James!
The Puckety Small Groups will be studying the book of James. This book gives us several practical tests to evaluate and strengthen our faith. Do you have the kind of faith that is pleasing to God? Is your faith “dead” or “alive”? Some of the topics addressed by James: How should we look at life’s hardships? Where does temptation come from? How does our speech affect others? What is the proper relationship between faith and works? What if we know God’s truth, but don’t practice it? How do healing, confession, and prayer go together? Am I someone who shows partiality?

Graduate Recognition will take place on Sunday June 10, 2018. If you have a family member who is graduating from high school or college, in May or June this year, please send any information/picture you’d like to have shared to Rebecca Fisher
(email@example.com) by or before Thursday May 31st. Thank you!!
Coffee Time: The fourth Wednesday of every month @ 10:00 AM. Next on May 23rd
You are invited to join Pastor Doug for a monthly Coffee Time – an opportunity to share a cup of coffee (or whatever your favorite drink might be) with no agenda other than enjoying the company of those who gather. Coffee (regular and decaf), tea and hot chocolate will be provided. Come join us – in the Conference Room.
Music Notes from the Choir Director...Lorraine Menk
The Summer Special Music schedule is posted on the bulletin board in the hallway. Won't you consider offering your music talents to the congregation at worship? As a solo, duet, or group, give your talents back to the Lord and praise Him with your song. All you need to do is pick a Sunday and fill in your name. The title needs to be in the office to Kelly by Tuesday the previous week but not until then. I can help coordinate accompaniment, microphone, etc. for you if you need it. You can reach me at 724-339-9531 with any concerns/questions.
Please be a life saver and donate something to VBS!!
Our donation board is up and ready! Please stop in the main hallway and check out the donation board located on the bulletin board just past the bathrooms, on the right. We'd like all non-perishable items returned by Sunday June 10th If you have a perishable food item, it can be returned on Sunday June 17th! All items can be left on the table in the Library. If you have questions please contact Rebecca Fisher (412.260.1571). Thank you all for your help and support of VBS!
Although we have a donation board with specific things we need for VBS, but we also need larger quantities of the following items:
There will be a box in the Library to put these items in.
Also, there will be two upcoming opportunities for VBS training: Sunday, June 3rd after Worship and Tuesday, June 5th at 6:30pm. If you are helping out with VBS, please plan to attend at least one of these training sessions!
VBS Helpers - VBS will be here very soon!! If you want to help with anything other than donating items from our donation board, you need to have your clearances on file in the church office, don’t wait!! Ask Rebecca Fisher or contact Kelly in the church office, for information on how to get your clearances so you can be able to join the fun!
Join Our Prayer Chain - If you are not on our prayer chain, please consider signing up for it. It only takes a minute to lift someone who may need your prayers! Call (724) 339-1323 or email the office. We have an email prayer chain as well as a phone call prayer chain.
To the family of God here at Puckety: We want to remind you that there are people here at Puckety who are available to pray for you after the worship service and we invite you to take advantage of these opportunities for prayer. We are asking that all who desire prayer to come and be seated in the first pew, up by the communion table. This will help us be aware of your desire for prayer. "The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." (James 5:16b)
