PPC Women: Coffee and Conversations – April 27th
We invite the women of PPC, members and visitors, to meet for coffee and conversation on Thursday, April 27th from 7-9pm! This event is designed to facilitate and enhance community among our women. We will meet in the evening over coffee and dessert, and each table will have some wonderful questions to encourage meaningful, get-to-know-you-better, friendship-building conversations. This is a low pressure, welcoming, casual evening. We really hope you will join us! Please RSVP HERE. We would love to have your help setting up the event. Please contact Rebecca Herrell (rebecca_herrell@yahoo.com) if you’d like to help.

PPC Women’s Book Club: May 9th, 7:30-9pm, 4158 Hockaday

Please join us for the spring quarter as we meet for book club on Tuesday evening, May 9, 7:30-9pm in the home of Shirley Mechem. Our book for this quarter is Just Do Something by Kevin DeYoung. This book deals with the dilemma many Christians struggle with: how do I know the will of God? This is a short, very readable and practical book you will be thankful to have read…and I bet you may soon after be ordering a second for a friend! Order HERE or you can pick one up in the next few weeks at the table outside the sanctuary.

For the Nations Summer Swim Lessons – Swimsuits Needed

For the Nations organizes swim lessons for refugee children each summer to help prevent
drownings in the refugee community. Swimsuits are needed for the refugee children. Boys
and girls swimsuits in sizes 4T-16, one piece only, are being collected until Sunday, June 4th
by the worship activity bags at the nursery desk.

For the Nations Mission Trip

The great thing about this trip is you don’t have to travel – you can sleep in your own bed! For the Nations is looking for volunteers the week of July 9-14. Our team will help with education, acculturation, and gospel presentation to refugee adults and children who have been through very trying and difficult circumstances. Ideally, volunteers would be available for all 5 days from 8:30-5:30, though they are flexible if you are only able to attend in the morning or afternoons, or a just a few of the days. High school, college age, and adults are all welcome. There is childcare for those pre-k and under and kindergarten-7th can participate in the program. For more information, please sign the clipboards outside the main doors or email Lindsey Micek (lflyg@yahoo.com).

Teachers & Helpers Needed in the Children’s Wing!

We are in need of both teachers and helpers to love and instruct our little ones during both the Sunday school and Worship hours. It is such a wonderful way to make a difference! If you are interested in either teaching or helping next fall, please contact Kristi Breed at childrensministry@providencedallas.com.
