NO FUSION tonight.
FRIDAY NIGHT FREE: As a ministry to our Beverly Heights parents with young children, Friday Night Free is an opportunity to bring your children to church for free dinner and free programming while you enjoy a child-free evening with your spouse! Our next Friday Night Free is Friday, May 17 from 5:30-8:30PM. If you didn't receive an email with a link to sign up from Lisa Tyger, contact her at email@example.com and she'll send you the link.
OUR NEXT ACE CLASS IS A STUDY OF HOSEA: Starting Sunday, April 28, Dr. Don Collett of Trinity Seminary in Ambridge will teach during the Adult Christian Education hour at 10 AM a six-week class entitled, “The Lion Roars: Redemptive Love in the Book of Hosea.” While a book unfamiliar to many Christians, Hosea offers lessons about justice, promise and pain and the nature of God’s redemptive love. “The message of Hosea centers on the enduring love of God for His people,” Dr. Collett says in a 3-minute video promoting the class which you may access on our website. “It also focuses on the way that love shapes us when we fall into sin and go astray from the Lord and shows us the way He recovers us through His love and His grace.” Please join us for a class which is sure to be lively and informative, presented by Dr. Collett, Trinity’s Old Testament scholar who brings years of knowledge and wisdom - both pastoral and pedagogical - to this timely and important subject.
LIMITED MOBILITY PARKING: Spaces in the upper lot next to the church have been labeled “Limited Mobility Parking.” Please save these parking spaces for those in our congregation who would benefit from parking closer to the church (especially on Beverly Heights Together Sundays).
SPRING CLEAN-UP: Calling all hands! Spring has finally arrived and the time has come for some spring cleaning. On Saturday, April 27, we will be holding the annual spring clean-up for the church. We will meet at 9:00 AM to clean the church grounds from the debris of winter and, as usual, spread mulch in the garden areas. There is work for everyone of all ages. Questions? Contact Jack Doyle at 412-818-8013.
- PRISM’S CELEBRATION BANQUET: Come and celebrate all that the Lord has done at PRISM’s Annual Banquet on May 2. Taking place at the LeMont Restaurant, there are two opportunities to attend: the luncheon from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM or the dinner from 5:00 to 9:00 PM. The banquet is fully underwritten, so there is no fee to attend. If you are interested in attending, please contact Pat Templin at 412-760-8556.
- PRESCHOOL EMPLOYMENT OPENING: Have you always wanted to work in a place where you are surrounded by hugs, smiles and the laughter of children daily? Beverly Heights Christian Preschool could be just the place you are looking for! We have an opening on our team for a teacher of excellence. Could God be calling you to minister to our church and community children in this dynamic, creative atmosphere? If so, please contact Karen Sourbeer at 412-561-7200 for more information.
- HAITI UPDATE: Typically at this time of year you have heard from us about the annual Haiti summer mission trip. We wanted to provide you with an update and share with you that due to the political uncertainty in Port-au-Prince and State Department travel alerts we have decided to cancel this year’s trip and are considering our possible return next year.
NEW WIDGETS ON THE WEBSITE: Updates from the printed bulletin can now be found online at www.beverlyheights.org/updates. The bulletin is also available online now at www.beverlyheights.org/bulletin. And this week we started a new online forum on the website called World•Views, accessible at this address on our website: www.beverlyheights.org/world-views. The content found at World•Views is compiled by our own Art Flickinger to inform thoughtful engagement with our culture and media. Submissions to the site should be sent to his email, firstname.lastname@example.org. If you turn to the back page of the latest February edition of Scattered Seeds, you’ll find a full explanation of World•Views. Printed copies of Scattered Seeds are available at the front entrance of the church as well as online at this address: www.beverlyheights.org/scattered-seeds.
