Here are a few things that happened around SMPC last week!
The Making Space Moms Group met up for a fun night out at the Regal Cinemas at Stonecrest on Thursday, May 4 to see “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.”
Several SMPC members donated blood in our American Red Cross Blood Drive on Saturday, May 6. And a big thank you to our coordinator, Tierra Sandeen! The next SMPC American Red Cross Blood Drive is Saturday, August 12.
Our very own Zach Bowyer, director of music and organist, served as the collaborative organist for The Raleigh Ringers on Sunday, May 7 at Christ Lutheran Church in Charlotte. He played Michael Keller’s arrangement of “Hymn to Joy” with them. We couldn’t be prouder of you, Zach!! It was a beautiful event!
Honk, Honk, Hooray! Scouts Troop 219 member Brooke Dabney finished her Eagle Project over the weekend, and the SMPC Preschool children (and many others!) couldn’t be more excited. Brooke, with the help of several friends, disassembled the play school bus that was on the playground and built a brand new one. What a special project that will be enjoyed for many years to come. View more pictures here.
Our confirmands enjoyed lunch with mentors, clergy and members of Session on Sunday, May 7. Hearing our confirmands read their Statements of Faith brought us so much joy – we pray they will continue to serve as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ each and every day.
View more photos of the lunch here.
We look forward to Confirmation Sunday this weekend where confirmands will profess their faith and become members of the church. Plan to stay afterward as we celebrate them with a reception and cake in the narthex!
