Protect your health by finding out your risk of having a stroke by participating in the
Life Line Screening that will be at Trinity Presbyterian Church on Monday,

Through ultrasound, the carotid arteries can be evaluated for the buildup of fatty plaque,
which is the leading cause of stroke. Register today for the Stroke, Vascular &
Heart Rhythm package by either calling the special Helping Hands

receive $10 off any package of $149 or more, but Trinity Presbyterian Church will also

Screening event.
The Stroke, Vascular & Heart Rhythm Package includes four screenings: carotid artery,
abdominal aortic aneurysm, peripheral arterial disease and atrial fibrillation. To schedule
your appointment and to receive this special offer, call the designated Helping hands

Presbyterian Women submitted reports to our Session and Presbytery in January that showed a large variety of many mission
activities for this past year and the giving of many dollars to mission projects; including international, national and local ones.
We have assembled and donated hygiene kits for the Presbyterian Disaster Fund which was used after storms and tornados in our
area. Sheets for use in Haiti, purchase of items made by Haitians and sold to raise money to build a local church and school,
contributions to Mother's Cupboard (food pantry) and now items for our own Camp Cherokee Retreat Center whose funds have
been by over 300 % from churches in the Presbytery due to the present economy. Snacks which can be sold to the campers are
being collected such as candy, crackers, juice boxes, soft drinks, etc. (No peanut items or any containing peanuts due to possible
allergies among the campers.).
We are completing this year's Bible Study on several Epistles titled "Dispatches from God.'
We are glad to welcome Paulette Penn and Marcia Eder to join us in Bible Study, prayer and mission work.
There were four PW ladies who attended the 'Gathering" at Marietta First Presbyterian Church in March.
We also attended the Presbyterian Village Auxiliary fundraising luncheon on April 27th and enjoyed a program of classical
piano music as well as prayer and devotion.
During the time for the Helping Hands Mother's day offering in May we plan to have a child of the church to Buddy with a PW
member for a "getting to know you" time.
New officers were elected in April and will be installed in May during the Birthday Offering luncheon. We will meet at Clara
Lacy's home (the Lodge at Bridge Mill) to install the new officers and celebrate the Birthday offering. New officers are:
Alice Delattre and Julia Mooney co moderators
Vivian Little, Secretary
Marion Lindstrom, Treasurer
Paulette Penn, Missions.
Our theme for this year has been showing God's love to others, the church, the community and the world.
We have certainly seen evidence of God's love during this year!
PW will meet in the summer with a project of organizing, cataloguing and shelving books under Alice Delattre's direction, for
our new Holly Hite Memorial Church library in the Education Building.
Please join us as we put "feet' to our prayers to learn and do God's will. We meet the second Tuesday at 10:00.

Yours in Christ,

Session Members
Ongoing New Senior Ministry
After an invitation to join in to locate those in need of
transportation to church, many members volunteered to
get the word out and participate in a survey to locate
seniors and others who need a ride to our Church. Our
church members are participating whole heartedly in this!
The information has been placed in various publications.
Now we would like to ask members to distribute fliers to
post on bulletin boards or give to others to explain the
service. If YOU know of anyone, please contact Vivian
Little at 770-893-3738.
