UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS

Communion with Confirmands - February 27

A Care-Partner Celebration among Confirmands, Clergy, and Presbyterian Women

It is sometimes said that seniors have few opportunities to serve Christ alongside younger generations. To build bridges, a representative of Presbyterian Women, our pastoral staff, and others on the Care Partner Committee plan to join with Idlewild’s 14 confirmands in a cross-generational service project. On February 26, the group plans to visit church members who cannot leave their homes. These visits will conclude with a shared celebration of communion. Barbara Denley, leader of Lydia Ruth Circle, represents Presbyterian Women in these cross-generational activities.
