Good Morning Palm Springs Presbyterian Church!
We are very pleased to informed you your Session met this last week, and during their meeting they approved the Mission Assessment Report prepared by our Mission Assessment Team, including Bill Cameron, Cindy Anderson, Lynn Hamilton, Steve Lutke and Cindy Stewart. Please join us in extending a very warm appreciation to this team for such outstanding work.
The completion of our Mission Assessment Report is the first step in our search for a new pastor. Our second step will be selecting our Pastor Nominating Committee, which will begin as soon as we receive approval from the Presbytery on our Mission Assessment Report.
In preparing for our Pastor Nominating Committee, we would like to extend an invitation to all members to please contact the office if you would be interested in serving on this very important committee. The committee will consist of seven members of our church. The only requirements to be a member of our Pastor Nominating Committee is to be a member of our church and have a strong passion to help lead us in selecting a wonderful pastor for our church.
Your 2021 Pledge cards will soon be mailed out to you. These are for you to use if you so desire when making you very welcomed gifts.
Our new deacons, Peggy Lynn, Melissa Yezek and Morella Larsen, and our new elders, Bill Cameron and Bill Miller were installed during the Session meeting this past week. Their installation was recorded so you will be able to see this during our service today. Please extend our new deacons and elders your congratulations and a note of gratitude for accepting these important positions for our church.

|Assurance of Forgiveness (John 3:16-17)||Marlee Clymer|
One: God so loved the world that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but have eternal life.
