Following the concert, the Greater Port Clinton Area Art Council will host a reception for the audience to meet the artists. Tickets are available at the door for $15 ($12 for Firelands members); students are admitted free of charge. Oops! Please Pay Per Capita Last year in January we asked all our members to contribute an extra $30 toward both their “per capita”—the amount we pay for each member to support the Presbyterian Church (USA) on the regional and national levels—and the cost of offering envelopes. Many of you did so, which was an enormous help toward our 2013 budget. This year we meant to ask the same thing in January, but somehow we missed doing so. So … would you please add $30 to your offering one of these next few weeks and mark it as “Per Capita”? You may want to use the buff-colored envelope in your box marked Initial Offering Envelope. Thank you! Online Bible Study See the Pastor’s Page to learn about this new program. What a great way to keep up in touch while so many of us are scattered around the country!

  • February 2014 Page 3 PASTOR’S PAGE Winter, Sermon on the Mount, and Albuquerque What a winter we’ve had thus far in Port Clinton! Snow, ice, wind, cold. The poor school children have missed more days since the beginning of the year than they’ve attended, and we even canceled worship last week. Here’s hoping February and March won’t be as brutal! Looking ahead to February, though, we know that an awful lot of our folks will be Somewhere Warmer for at least that one month. We’ve taken chairs out of the back of the sanctuary to make things seem cozier, and we’ve cut back on meetings since so many folks aren’t around. The reality is that we are working on how to be church for the fewer than 30 families who remain in town. One of the things we do in the winter is hold our Friday Firelands Family dinners once a month. Getting together in a local restaurant gets all of us out of the house and gives us a chance to “hang out” together as friends. Another thing we’d like to do this winter is try an online Bible Study, which will be available for people in town (who may be stuck in their homes more than they’d like) and for people who are Away. Since we have four weeks of Sermon on the Mount lectionary texts, we’re going to study those passages. What will this involve? You’ll read a short article that I’ve written. Maybe you’ll follow some of the links that will be included … and maybe you won’t. Then you’ll answer a question or two, or respond to someone else’s answer, and we’ll see where it goes. You can come in and out as you please any time during the four weeks or so we keep this Bible Study going. We’re working on getting this set up on our website and hope to have it there by the middle of next week (February 4 or 5). You’ll need to sign in and be approved: that way we shouldn’t be over-run with scammers and trolls! If you want to extend an invitation to join in to any of your friends, just let me know so I can approve them. Albuquerque In the meantime, a number of you have asked about my trip last week to Albuquerque last week, where I worked with two churches as part of the PC(USA)’s New Beginnings program. In response I’ll just say that I thoroughly enjoyed being there and was glad I took a day just to enjoy the area. Here are a couple of pictures I took: one of the San Felipe de Neri church in the city’s Old Town and the other from a hiking trail in the Sandia foothills. Oh, the sky!
  • February 2014 Page 4 Stated Session Meeting Highlights for January 14, 2014 The meeting was opened with distribution of prayer cards and sharing of prayer requests. Clerk David Moore reported receiving a mission pledge card from Maumee Valley Presbytery for our church and referred it to Joyce Jagucki, Mission Committee chair. Treasurer’s Report: Bill Umlauf, Treasurer, reported that for December 2013, the General Fund Income minus GF Expense resulted in a gain of $5858.94 Total 2013 GF income of $144,900.75 ($1900.75 over budget) minus total 2013 GF expenses of $138,199.95 ($4700.10 under budget) resulted in a 2013 gain of $6700.80. The 2013 Pre-school Income minus Expenses results in a year end gain of $5645.99. Connie Brand, John Madison and Ernie McCullough were approved as Communion Celebrants by a majority of Session. Financial Stewardship – Mary Caracci. We now have 34 pledges totaling $99,734.00. We indeed have a very generous congregation. Outreach – Karen Coffin. Programs that reached out to the community in December were the preschool Christmas program and the Service of the Longest Night. Since our reorganization of Session duties, some Deacon responsibilities report to the Outreach committee. Under the “fellowship” leadership of Anne O’Malley, the Deacons were busy, as usual: in addition to helping with the Sunday morning service each week, in December the deacons provided cookies for the evening preschool program and helped with reception after the program. Property Management – Jack Combs reported that our propane supplier has agreed to last year’s price for this year. The post by the door has been repaired thanks to Jim Wagnitz and Bill O’Malley; final painting will follow in the spring. Committee is checking into solar- powered lights strong enough to solve our outdoor lighting concerns. Worship & Music – Kay McIntosh. Mark and Jeanne have moved some chairs out of the sanctuary for the winter. The setup feels more comfortable and intimate. The Service of the Longest Night was meaningful and beautiful. Pastor Jeanne reported that nearly 40 people attended. Most were not from our congregation. The Christmas Eve service was lovely as well. The (small) choir surprised themselves with their ability to lead in worship. The ending of the service featured the congregants with candles moving around the sanctuary by the stained glass windows. Karen Coffin led in worship the Sunday after Christmas, supported by Mary Braymeier playing the piano. The new Hymnals continue to add greatly to our worship. Susan Larcey is looking into the possibility of finding a new light for the piano. She would also like to be able to involve other musicians in worship whenever possible. Session Re-organization: Alison Falls posed the question “Is the size of our Session appropriate for the size of our congregation?” She will follow up on with Session members on this. Discussion: Pastor Jeanne led a discussion on “Stressors on our Congregation.” Pastor’s Report – Pastor Jeanne Gay. Jan. 8-10 I participated in a presbytery-led retreat for pastors who have not been in their churches very long. It was excellent, as a source of both new ideas and terrific feedback and suggestions from other pastors. I am excited to say that the small group of us are covenanting to continue meeting every other month into the summer. This is a great opportunity for me to develop skills in church leadership and in personal development. Session expressed a special heart-felt thank you to Karen Coffin for preaching on December 29. We appreciate all of the hard work that went into her sermon. There will be no February Session meeting. Next meeting will be March 11. Prayer concerns were voiced and Pastor Jeanne closed the meeting with prayer.
  • February 2014 Page 5 Preschool News The month of January came and went very quickly. With all of the snow and cold weather we were only in school for 14 days!! Even with all the days we missed, we were able to squeeze in two visits with “Mrs. D” (Joyce Dellasantina) and story hour with Mrs. Winkie from Ida Rupp Library. This month’s topics were all about the cold winter weather. We did lots of fun snowmen activities, grew our own snowflake, and learned about penguins and polar bears. The kids and teachers are starting to get cabin fever so we are really hoping the groundhog does not see his shadow!
