On April 1st, we will celebrate Maundy Thursday together through an immersive experience in small groups.  This event is a self-guided prayer walk through the Journey to the Cross. It is intended to give participants space to reflect on the events of Jesus’ crucifixion in a unique and meaningful way. 12 stations will be set up throughout the main floor of the church. Each station will give the participant an opportunity to read, reflect and actively engage. Some stations will have a video to watch, others may have an activity to participate in. Participants will need to reserve a time slot in advance for 1-6 people of their choosing. A sign-up sheet is available at the welcome center until March 28th to choose a start time from 1-8 PM. Please plan on 90 minutes to complete the experience. Volunteers will be needed to assist with set-up Wednesday, March 31st, and tear down on Friday, April 2nd. Please contact Lana Gascho to volunteer or ask questions.


There will not be sewing this week due to the setup of the Maundy Thursday activities.


The Passion Week Prayer Path postcards are available at the Welcome Center. If you would like to invite someone to participate in this event please take several to hand out.


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 April calendar is in your mailbox. It has a different look since we are integrating the Faithlife information with what we normally print. You will find the events on one side and the other side has the birthdays and anniversaries listed. I encourage you to go on Faithlife either through your internet browser or the phone app

for a detailed description of the events. Click here for access on your computer. If you have questions contact Emily. Thanks!


The youth are organizing fundraisers to raise money for Shammah Ministries in Flint. Maggie Maurer is collecting 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.


The Menno Knights have done it! They have completed their goal of circling all the Great Lakes. They are very close to their weight loss goal of 200 pounds with only 1 pound to go in the next 2 weeks of reporting.
