Gospel Echoes Benefit Auction is being held April 9-10 in Goshen, IN. Why don't you make plans to go...and take Barry Maust with you! :). Since he can no longer drive, HE NEEDS A RIDE! It is a wonderful event with music, food, fellowship, and of course an auction. If you have anything you would like to donate please contact Barry or are interested in going.


Positive Alternatives ministry is looking for volunteers. Training is available. If interested contact April Schmidt at caropregnancycenter@gmail.com.


The youth are organizing fundraisers to raise money for Shammah Ministries in Flint. Maggie Maurer is going to collect recipes from our church community to make a cookbook to sell. If you have a recipe to contribute, please take a form from the Welcome Desk, add your recipe and return to the Maurer church mailbox. You may also email your information to pigeonriverrecipes@gmail.com. Please have the recipes turned in by April 11.


On March 28th, we will have Palm Branches available for the in-person worship service to celebrate Palm Sunday. If you would like to have Palm Branches at home for the online service, please contact the church office by Friday, March 26th to make arrangements.


It’s that time of year again... for the Passion Week Prayer Path! We will be meeting at the Pigeon Park to set things up on Tuesday, March 23rd at 5PM. We need your help to get the cross set on the top of the Rotary Hill. Please contact Tim Maust if you are able to help.

This week the Menno Knights completed their trek around another Great Lake, checking Lake Ontario off the list. Together they lost an amazing 15.6 pounds this week for a total of 189 pounds. With the program ending at Easter, they have just a couple more weeks to reach their goals.


Plans are in place to begin a new 13-week series of GriefShare on April 13. The grief support group is open to everyone who has lost a loved one. Classes will be held at Pigeon River Fellowship Hall at 6:00 pm on Tuesdays. Contact Marie Maust to register. Pick up a flyer at the Welcome Center or click here.


Turner’s Creek Mennonite Church (a CMC church in Jackson, Kentucky) has begun responding to the flooding that has overwhelmed the eastern half of Kentucky, as 1200-1800 homes have been flooded in Breathitt County alone. However, they can’t do it alone! Mennonite Disaster Service is in search of a project director and assessors for April and May to help coordinate the early response efforts. Responsibilities for the Project Director would be to oversee day to day tasks including welcoming groups, connecting the volunteers to clients, making sure safety measures are followed, making sure volunteers have the resources they need, and connecting with local partners to find meaningful work. Organization and people skills are imperative. Assessors would travel ahead of the volunteer groups to verify the need, clarify with the homeowner the scope of work, and help the Project Director discern the order and priority of jobs available in the field. Volunteer opportunities would be 1-2 months at a time. Call Darin Bontrager at 717-682-3480, or Phil Swartzentruber at 606-295-2535 or 606-568-6073 for more information.
