SPECIAL SUNDAY WORSHIP The Rev. Juan Pablo Gutierrez, pastor of “Granjas del Desierto” in Cuidad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, his wife, Yolanda, son, Pablo, and daughter, Karen, are coming to worship with us on Sunday, April 29. There will be one worship service at 10:00 am, followed by a luncheon in their honor.  Providence has been financially supporting Juan Pablo’s congregation in Juarez for some years. It has been a while since Juan Pablo has visited with us and we are delighted he and members of his family will be here! Please join us to hear Juan Pablo speak and learn what our support to his congregation has helped him accomplish.

CREATION CELEBRATION SUNDAY (AKA Earth Day), April 22, both services.  The overall goal of Creation Celebration Sunday is to glorify God through song, worship, and study that point to God’s Creation and our crucial role as stewards of the creation.  For the sixth year we will be displaying in our worship spaces images of God’s magnificent Creation to enhance our worshipers’ appreciation of it.

REBUILDING TOGETHER “Repairing Homes. Revitalizing Communities. Rebuilding Lives.”  Providence joins the ACCA team to fix up the home of a local resident. Join the team for a full or half Saturday of work and fellowship on April 28. Materials are provided. Bring your tools for yard or inside work. Continental Breakfast, lunch & water are provided. Contact the church at office@providencechurch.org for more information. [***Rebuilding Together started with the simple act of neighbors helping neighbors. In 1973, a small group of people in Midland, Texas, realized a growing need in their community. Homes in their community had fallen into disrepair and their neighbors could not afford to fix them on their own. The group volunteered their time and skills to rehabilitate the homes of their neighbors. Realizing the potential impact of this work, the group formed Christmas in April, with the intent of performing repair and rehabilitation work in their community every April. *** News of the group’s good work spread slowly, but eventually achieved national recognition. The mission spread beyond the idea of providing service once a year in April to bringing together partners from all walks of life to help our neighbors year-round. We became Rebuilding Together and opened the national office in 1988. *** Today, Rebuilding Together has grown into premier nonprofit community revitalization organization. *** Together, with our corporate and community partners, we repair homes, revitalize communities and rebuild lives. Rebuilding Together’s local affiliates and nearly 100,000 volunteers complete about 10,000 rebuild projects nationwide each year.***]
