Congratulations and many thanks to you, Fred Watkins, on your 40-year anniversary with Eastminster Presbyterian Church. On May 1, 1981 Fred began his music ministry with Calvary Presbyterian Church which, through the mergers of several different congregations became Eastminster. Fred has touched many lives through the years as not only a music director but as a teacher, audio technician and video director. God has blessed this congregation and Fred has blessed us with his remarkable skills of pairing music to the word of God tied to the lectionary, sacrament and scripture.

Thank you, Fred, for your many years of outstanding service to God and this congregation.

Mr. Rogers Day: Won't you be my neighbor?

Photos from Eastminster Presbyterian Church's post 03/17/2021

Celebrating Mr. Rogers Day! New this year to the Presbyterian Planning Calendar is Mr. Rogers Day on March 20. Rogers was an ordained PC(USA) minister and notable public figure whose work around peace and reconciliation are worth remembering. He was also a pioneer in the world of Christian Education and formation of young children.

The EPC Outreach Committee asks that you participate in a Facebook rally to recognize this day. It’s simple! Find your favorite cardigan and put it on. If you’d like, make a handheld sign saying how during the pandemic you’ve remained a neighbor to someone. Examples may be: Telephone calls, Emails, Waving to strangers on a walk, Or Won’t you be my neighbor?

[03/10/21]   Welcome Home, Children of God!

We didn’t know a year ago that March 15 would mark the last time we’d gather in the Sanctuary for over a year. We’ve waited and prayed, cried and prayed, searched for solutions and prayed -- for the day when we’d get back in.

That day is HERE. We’ll be re-entering our Sanctuary for a “Good Friday” service on Friday, April 2. The service will begin at 6:30 p.m. Before that can happen safely, everyone needs to be familiar with the protocols set in place by the Re-entry Task Force.

Just as we remember the sacrifice our Lord made for us on Good Friday, we will celebrate the resurrection of our Lord on Easter Sunday, April 4 at 11:00 a.m.

The Re-Entry Task Force has been working for over a year now to be sure that our return to worship is safe.

Feel free to reach out to any member of this Task Force should you have questions – Sherry, Denise, Michele, Kathy or Vicki Lynn.

Here’s what you can expect:

• Although you won’t see some of the work that has been done over the last year, much was cleaned up and cleaned out. We have purchased professional products for sanitizing all our areas. You will see that pew cushions have been removed, as have hymnbooks. Also, air filters have been upgraded and recently installed.

• Both the main sanctuary double doors (Galion Street side) and the entrance on the back side of the church nearest the sanctuary will be opened.

• You will be greeted warmly at each entrance where

o your temperature will be taken (must register 100.4° or less)
o we will register your attendance
o provide a mask, if you need one
o remind you to socially distance

• Two ushers will be in the narthex at the side doors. The center doors will be closed and not for entrance. The ushers will provide bulletins and show you to your seat.

• The sanctuary will be seated by ushers from front to back on entering and Sherry will direct from the chancel the exiting from back to front.

• There will be boxes at the side doors as you exit to dispose of your bulletins.

• The only restroom that will be available at this time will be the one in the narthex.

• Hand sanitizers will be available as well as individual packs of tissues.

• No other areas will be open except the narthex, the sanctuary, the choir loft, the narthex restroom and the church office at this time.

The Easter Season celebrates our Risen Lord, who overcame darkness and death so that we might live in His Light. What better time than now to return to that Light and the peace that His fellowship offers?

Welcome Home!

STATED CONGREGATIONAL MEETING
SUNDAY, JANUARY 31, 2021 AT 12:00 P.M. (NOON)

Dear Friends in Christ,

We have another wonderful opportunity to see one another face-to-face in the safe environment of a Zoom gathering. I pray you will join us for our Stated Congregational Meeting which, by vote of the session, has been changed to Sunday, January 31 at 12:00 p.m. (noon)

This change of date allows the time needed to email and mail via the post office the documents for your review. We need your help in making this process successful.

So, each of you is responsible for letting the office know whether you want to receive the reports via your email address OR wish to have the paper copies mailed to your home address. YOUR REQUEST IS NEEDED NO LATER THAN TUESDAY, JANUARY 26. Obviously, to save natural resources and the cost of mailing, we would prefer to use email, but will be happy to do as you request.

The Committee reports will not be read aloud, so it is important that you review them ahead of time. If you have any questions or comments, we can certainly address those. As we welcome and install our new trustees, we have both questions for them and for the congregation. I pray your presence as support and affirmation of the calls they answered to serve in this role.

In this email, you will find two important pieces of information: the outline for the meeting and the Zoom invitation. For those who do not receive information via email, we will contact them about the meeting.

I look forward to seeing your faces! May the love of God enfold us, the peace of Christ surround us, and the presence and joy of the Spirit be in and among us!

Pastor Sherry
