Spanish Springs Presbyterian Church News
- Heifer Project Update Following the Heifer Project Cookie Sale on December 11, SSPC youth raised enough money to purchase two water buffalo for families in third-world communities! “Buffalo are a blessing! With a Heifer Project water buffalo, farmers can grow four times more than if plowing by hand. Buffalo manure fertilizer improves their crops. They rent their buffalo to other farmers and sell calves for extra income. With a river buffalo, children will get rich milk to drink, as well.” www.heifer.org
- Sundays after Church. A DVD class, “Jesus and His Jewish Influences,” with discussion afterwards, will be held. Follow an acclaimed archaeologist to unearth the roots of Jesus’s actions and teachings within the traditions and beliefs of ancient Judaism. Class time is 12:00 noon, following church. We hope to see you there!
- Good Shepherd’s Clothes Closet. Clean underwear and socks are prized by those without. With the cold weather upon us the need for warm winter clothes is high. Blankets, sleeping bags, coats, winter hats, gloves and warm winter boots are being requested. Travel-size toiletries including razors, deodorant, lip balm, toothbrushes and toothpaste are in short supply. Drop off your donations at church and an SSPC volunteer will take your donations to Good Shepherd’s.
- St. Paul’s Community Food Pantry is requesting peanut butter and jelly for March. There is always a need for EVERYTHING, including personal hygiene items and all sizes of baby diapers. Drop off your donations at SSPC and one of our volunteers will deliver them to St. Paul’s Community Food Pantry.
- Gift of Warmth: Due to continuing cold temperatures in the area, there is an ongoing need for warm clothing at Good Shepherd’s Clothes Closet. Presbyterian Women will continue to collect both new and gently-used warm clothing, gloves, hats, socks, blankets, outerwear, and sleepwear. Bring your items to church and a volunteer will deliver them to Good Shepherd’s Clothes Closet.
- Education Tree: In February, members of the congregation took tags from the Education Tree so that our members can help with supplies needed by the teachers at Anderson Elementary School. Participants were asked to take a tag, purchase the item, and bring it back to church no later than March 12.
- Good Friday Service—April 14—7:00 pm Spanish Springs Presbyterian Church will be participating in a multi-church Sparks-wide Good Friday worship service at 7:00 pm on April 14 at Sparks United Methodist Church7:00 pm. The address of the church is 1231 Pyramid Way Sparks, NV 89431, located on the northwest corner of Oddie Blvd. and Pyramid Way. The SSPC choir will be participating, as well as our Pastor Pat.
- Every Sunday, Spanish Springs Presbyterian church is offering child care for infants and toddlers during worship. We are so happy to have Sheila Peaslee tend the nursery on Sundays.
