[March 31, 2011]   --First Presbyterian Church enters into April, Palm Sunday and Easter weekends after having had a very active first quarter.

The new Deacons were installed in January: Linda Zinser, Dr. Paul Kasa, and Kendall Martin. The Open Table Concert series at Chad’s Blind featured Jim Croegaret and Tom Quinn. Logan County Food Pantry items collected were: Kleenex, dish soap, and shampoo. Trips were taken to see “Church Basement Ladies 2” in Peoria and a dining out gathering in Mason City at Jack and Jo’s. The First Presbyterian Church hosted the tour, “Permission to Speak Freely” with Anne Jackson, Susan Isaacs, and Solveig Liethaug. The theology book that was discussed was The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis.   A new program was initiated by the Mission Committee: collecting gently used clothes for men being released from prison (contact the church office for more information, 217-732-6141).

The Lent season started with the imposition of ashes on Ash Wednesday.
The following activities are scheduled for April: Cantata on April 10 at 10 am, Open Table Concert at Chad’s Blind on April 14 at 7pm with Lesleigh Bennett, Palm Sunday Worship on April 17 at 10 am, Maundy Thursday Service on April 21 at 7 pm, Prayer Stations on Good Friday, April 22 from 12-4 pm, Easter Worship Service on April 24 at 10 am and Open Table Concert at Chad’s Blind on April 28 at 7 pm with Ben Bedford. The Concert Series continues in May with Christopher Williams on May 12 and Michael Mahler on May 23, both at 7 pm.  The First Presbyterian Church invites everyone to attend these activities and worship services.
