Palm Sunday, April 9, 2017


Join us for Palm Sunday on April 9, 2017


Services will be held at 8:30 a.m. (Traditional Service) and 11:00 a.m. (Contemporary Service). In between services at 9:45 a.m., we will enjoy fellowship with a Palm Sunday Breakfast Buffet followed by an Easter Egg Hunt. During Children’s Church at the 11 a.m. service, the children will use your donations to assemble Easter Baskets for Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. See details for all Palm Sunday events below.


Breakfast & Easter Egg Hunt: On Palm Sunday, April 9, we ask the congregation to join us for a breakfast buffet between services at 9:45 a.m. – there will be no Sunday School.  Everyone is asked to bring a breakfast dish.  We will have a sign up sheet in the Narthex beginning March 26 so that there will be a variety of items.  Following breakfast we will host our traditional Easter Egg Hunt at 10:30.  We ask that you provide a dozen filled eggs for each child that you will have participating in the egg hunt.  You can bring the eggs to the Supply Room across from the restrooms by Saturday April 8. Please have your child bring either an Easter basket or a bag to put their collected eggs in!


Lenten Outreach Mission: For the 11th year, we will assemble Easter baskets for Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh as a Lenten outreach mission.  Perry Highway Lutheran will be donating these baskets on behalf of our congregation as well as the Mother’s Hope Foundation – a local organization that strives to ease the suffering of children afflicted with cancer.  The baskets will be given to children of all ages – toddlers to teens.   We would appreciate any of the following suggested items, including but not limited to: craft items, puzzles, books, card games, small games, make-up, toiletries, SCRIPS gift cards, fun socks, jewelry, DVDs, CDs, stuffed animals (tags must be on them to indicate “NEW” status), handheld or travel games, small Lego or other building sets, sports memorabilia (i.e. game jerseys, hats, tees, etc.).  We are NOT collecting food or candy items due to dietary restrictions.   Any monetary donations are also welcome and will be used to buy any needed items.  Any questions or suggestions regarding the baskets, please contact Cyndi Chiodo, Mother’s Hope Co-Chair.  We will be putting the baskets together on Palm Sunday, April 9, during Children’s Church.  Please bring your donations in during the next few weeks.  Thank you in advance for your generosity!
