On February 25, Debra Paulus, Senior Development Officer for Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS), will speak at the 11:00 a.m. worship service. She will also join the congregation following worship for a potluck lunch and presentation. We invite everyone to attend this luncheon to learn how PCHAS helps struggling children and families in our community. Christ’s teachings are at the heart of their ministry and programs. Don’t miss this special presentation to learn how the members of New Hope can help this important organization. Presbyterian Women will provide the chicken and drinks, but please bring a side or dessert to share.
