Today we extend the “Right Hand of Fellowship” to Jada, Aiyana and Shakeema Kirk who were baptized last Sunday during morning worship.


Presentation of Academic Scholarships – Today

The Scholarship Committee will award academic scholarships to 2017 graduates during part of our morning worship.



North End Foundation of Berea will host its Berea Uptown 6th Annual Community Pig Roast/Cookout


This year’s event includes a memorial dedication in memory of Deacon Al Albergottie. Members of the Naval Submarines where Al served for many years have been invited to assist the trustees of the Foundation in dedicating a living tree. Also, an invitation has been extended to members of the Berea Civil Service, where Al was a long-term member, Berea city officials, and local veterans. Additionally, we have invited Deacon Al Albergottie’s family to join us for this event. The dedication is scheduled to start promptly at 1:00pm in front of the church. The tree has already been planted. It’s an Alberta Spruce. It stays green all year long and its name reminds us of Al!


There is no requirement to purchase a ticket for the pig roast if you wish to attend the dedication ceremony.


Tickets are $25 per person and includes pig roast, chicken, hot dogs, beverages, lots of home-made desserts, salads, baked beans, games and more. The proceeds benefit the Berea Youth Workers.

Most of you have already purchased tickets. Please obtain tickets by indicating the number you want on the clip board on the ushers’ table. Thanks for your strong support for our youth in this community.

Also, please consider being a sponsor for this event. For your convenience, we have copies of the requirements to be a sponsor of this event. Or you are welcome to the North End Foundation office at 440-243-2988 for additional details about sponsorships.


NOTE: As I mentioned last Sunday, I am not requesting you to sign up to bring desserts. I trust you to just do what you have done again and again where you have helped us with your bringing many delicious desserts. Also, I will need volunteers. Please let me know if you can assist in some capacity for this event.


NOTE: Members have purchased a few tickets for any members and friends that need help with their ticket purchase. Please contact the office or pastor.

Box on Ushers’ Table for Invitations

As you continue to invite people to church, please use one of the forms on the ushers’ table, include the name of your invitee, and place the form in the box. Also, please keep in mind we are extending our invitations to people who don’t attend church. Also, we will keep your invitees lifted up in prayer.





As we continue to unfold this new way of giving and staying connected with our church we thank you for responding to our request to use PUSHPAY. You are helping us to implement this new way for you and other members and friends/ to stay connected to our church even when they are out of the state or absent from worship.


Also, you are now able to use the church App, People’s Community Church (PCC) that is part of PUSHPAY. You can now access my written sermons on this APP. We are presently working to make the sermons audible on your smart phone.


Additionally, you can now submit prayer requests using the PCC App. Your prayer requests are confidential, come directly to the church office, and are not accessible from the website. So please start using this new App as an additional way to share your prayer requests.


Further, you can access an updated calendar of events and activities happening here at the church. Of course, there are other features of interest to you and others on the church’s new App. I hope you will use PUSHPAY so you can see the positive benefits of this new tool.


As you know, we have been informing you about Pushpay for the last 90 days. Our plan is to create a user-friendly way so members and friends can stay connected with the church. Toward that end, assuming you have a smart phone, I request you use it to send the church $1.00 or a little more (This is only a test and to make sure you know how Pushpay works). For your convenience, the steps to follow with your smart phone are listed below. Will you use PUSHPAY now? In addition, I have sent this message to you and others using e-mail addresses of members and friends. I am thanking you in advance for helping us implement this new way of connecting with our members. Should you have questions, please contact any trustee member.

Requesting Prayers and Using Prayer Cards

Please remember when you make a prayer request, to obtain a prayer card from an usher or from the rear of the pew chair. We need you to complete all sections of the prayer card. It is important that you estimate the time period you are requesting the church family to pray for your request. If your estimate of time changes, you are encouraged to update your request by completing another prayer card and giving it to an usher. With your help we will be able to better manage the number of prayer requests at any given time and the space requirements in the pastor’s letter. Thanking you anticipatively!



If you are visiting with us today, I warmly and gladly welcome you. Thank you for choosing to worship with us. Please take a minute and fill out the visitor’s card and return it to one of our ushers or deposit it in the offering tray. We welcome you to come again to worship with us or to attend some of our program offerings to the community. We are indeed glad to have you, and if we can do anything to make your visit more spiritual or meaningful, please inform one of our members or me.
