NEWS & NOTES
Our sympathy is with Calvin Hiett and the Briscoe family after the passing of Kirleen Hiett on March 27. Services were held last Wednesday in Mt. Vernon, TX.
Thank you so much for all the cards, calls, and especially the prayers. I am almost through with one treatment and will start on 12-one hour treatments weekly followed by surgery this summer. Please keep Floyd in your prayers as he takes care of me as I go through these chemo treatments. We love you and miss being with you in person. Peggy & Floyd Clark
Thank you so much for your many acts of kindness during my recent accident and illness. Your prayers and cards have uplifted my spirit and given me the strength through God’s grace to see each day as a blessing. I continue to improve and look forward to worshipping with you again in the near future. Garland Nevil
Pick up a communion packet & ziplock bag from the tall tables in the auditorium or from the information centers in the main hallways before worship service begins.

Good morning and welcome to our worship. Today is Easter—the celebration of the Empty Tomb. We are so glad to have you with us this today.
We are introducing two new activities this Easter:
The first is a photo booth where you and your family can have your picture made to commemorate the empty tomb. This will be available in the Atrium before and after worship. We will have it all staffed and ready to capture your family memories. Come by before or after worship.
The second is a prayer cross. A cross will be standing at the front of the worship center where you can tie a ribbon on it symbolic of a prayer you have. This can be a prayer of thanksgiving, intercession, or petition. Any time before, during, or after Sunday’s worship, come forward and tie a ribbon to the cross. Ribbons will be provided in baskets by the cross. This will be a beautiful and visual representation of our faith.
Christ is Risen!
Today is Grace Offering. All of our contribution today helps fund the outreach efforts of the Park Avenue Church of Christ. Your gift today will help send Bibles to Eastern Europe; feed the hungry; provide for the many needs of our Children’s Homes; reach out to the homeless; help pay the bills of a struggling family; fund PA’s mission trip to Casa de Esperanza; provide financial support to missionaries in Mexico, Colombia, and Togo; keep our Barnabas Center going strong; fund our World Bible School ministry; provide spiritual fellowship for students at Grayson College; send Christmas boxes to underprivileged children around the globe; support our sewing ministry; and provide funds for short-term mission trips. What you give today will help meet the physical and spiritual needs of those closest to us and those far away. Please give generously as God has prospered each of us so much.
GO to pacoc.net/go for more information. If you would like to volunteer in any of our outreach efforts, contact a minister and we will point you to the right person.
Thanks to our kids who got our Grace Offering off to a great start by contributing $1993 in coins last Sunday in Daisy’s Little Red Wagon.
