Prison Ministry at SPCC

Posted on Jul 3, 2015 in Fresh News

SPCC Family…

A few of our members are highly involved in the prison ministry here and have been able to connect with many imprisoned women and men. One of the women the church has been supporting will be released from prison July 9th and will relocate to Charlotte. She will most likely live in transitional housing upon her arrival and will only have the clothes she is wearing and $45. We are asking our faith community to donate any suitable clothing. She is size 8. Please bring any cash and clothing donations to the church and Gene McCurry, along with Henry Graham, will be able to take these items to her.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and compassion.

This Sunday, June 7

Posted on Jun 5, 2015 in Fresh News

This Sunday, there will be a “Called Board Meeting” immediately following worship. Worship is now at 10:00am. We will meet briefly to discuss upcoming changes within our church staff. Following the meeting, Greg and Helms are offering another “Pastor Talk Back” session. This is a time to gather together after worship to share your reflections on the service: the sermon, the music, a hymn lyric, sacred space observations, the scripture, etc. Last week’s “Talk Back” was excellent. Consider attending this one as well!

SPCC Ministerial Transition and Search Update

Posted on May 29, 2015 in Fresh News

As you are hopefully aware by now, Greg and Helms have decided to become full-time to the QC Family Tree.  This dedicated focus to their work in that community will be so helpful to those they serve.  While we’re sad that they’ll be leaving in mid-July, I’ve been so pleased with how understanding church members have been of the decision and how supportive everyone has been with each other.

To ensure our church family continues to move forward and has a positive and smooth transition with and for Greg and Helms, we’ve already embarked on several activities.

Called Board Meeting – June 7

o   We will have a called Board Meeting on Sunday, June 7, right after church to finalize the Search Committee and decide on whether SPCC will have an Intentional Interim or Regular Interim minister.

Transition Team

o   A Transition Team has been formed to work with Greg and Helms for a smooth transition as well as to ensure free flowing communications within the church.

Please e-mail me (edgagnon@mindspring.com) with any questions or concerns during this time. 

Let’s view this process as part of the journey, part of the chance for personal and spiritual growth, part of the time where we can learn more about each other, find new ways to help others, and find new opportunities to love each other and those we serve.

Thanks!

Ed
