Opening Our Hearts to a New Life in Christ
Easter Season Events and Announcements
We are excited to invite you to a number of events and growth opportunities (details are forthcoming, but please mark your calendars):
In addition to Sunday worship, we will continue regular midweek prayer services as an opportunity to pray, faithfully connect and support each other in a smaller and more personal setting. Please keep an eye out for upcoming announcements with more information.
A series of sermon talkback gatherings will offer an opportunity to connect the rich meaning of our Scripture readings and the day’s sermon with our faith and our daily lives. Join us after worship in Fellowship Hall on May 4th, May 18th, and May 25th.
Starting on Sunday, April 27th, the Easter Season team will collect items for Bags of Hope care kits that will be distributed to Strong Hospital oncology patients at the Pluta and Wilmot Cancer Centers. Each kit will include the following: bottle of water, nut free chocolate bar, word search book with a pencil, unscented hand sanitizer, unscented miniature body lotion, lip balm, small packet of tissues. If you wish to let the Easter Season Team purchase items, we welcome donations. We will be collecting until Sunday, May 25th. Thank you for your merciful help!
Give life, give blood! Every 2 seconds someone in the US needs blood and 1 donation can save up to 3 lives. The Brighton Town Hall is hosting a blood drive on Thursday, May 1st, 2-7pm, 2300 Elmwood Ave. The Brighton High School is hosting a blood drive on Saturday, May 10th, 9am-2pm at 1150 South Winton Rd. For more information or to make an appointment, call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or click http://www.redcrossblood.org/donating-blood. Walk-ins welcome!
On Mother’s day, May 11, we will join over 8,000 congregations and groups and host a collection for Blanket Sunday in support of the Church World Service. Our contributions will fund blankets and mosquito nets, emergency food packages and water pumps. We can help rebuild lives and sustainable communities in areas of disaster and displacement. What an opportunity! What a blessing!
On the afternoon of Sunday, May 18th, we will join the deacons in their visit to Highlands at Brighton nursing home for worship and fellowship. We will get to see old friends and current TCPC members, make new connections and share the good news. The address is 5901 Lac De Ville Boulevard and we will be starting around 2-2:30pm; more details will be forthcoming.
We hope to see you at worship, or in one or more of these opportunities and events. Join us in the adventure!
Christ is risen!! He is risen indeed!!
