Woodlands Presbyterian Church
...seeking to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known...
There is a nursery available for our Sunday Morning Worship Service

Itinerant workers will be arriving soon
to work in stables and outdoors during the cold winter months. The chapel collects
clothing for those in need. Check your closets for blankets, coats and other warm
clothing for men and wormen that you would like to donate. The Mission Team will
collect these items from the Mission room during the month of October and deliver
them to the chapel. You may call Noranne Glezen (922-3565).
It is time to begin collecting gift-filled shoeboxes through Operation Christmas Child.
These boxes reach children across the globe with the Good News of Jesus Christ and give us the opportunity to serve.
Instructions and boxes can be found in the Narthex. Return them filled by November 9. ( Kathi Dolstein 922-3755)

Finding Your Story In God's Story Sermon Series

begins Sunday morning, January 19......This is a 31 week sermon series of Bible study, from beginning to end.

WPC Tenth Anniversary service,
l-r Dr. Mike Seitz, Dick Warner, & Dr. James Farley

The spectacular Service of Organization, the performance of the choir, the Installation of our pastor and the impressive reception all combined to make March 17, 1996 service at the Presbyterian Kirk in the Pines memorable and exciting event.

There was the excitement of our members, the reaction of friends, the warm loving expressions of various Presbyterian Kirk in the Pines members, the rose placed on the alter of Westminster Church of Hot Springs to mark the birth of our church; and letters of congratulations like the one from Reverend Howard "Flash" Gordon saying. "I have been greatly blessed by working with all of you". All this and more says that we are really richly blessed that God is with us.

Exciting things are ahead. The first Session meeting was held April 4, 1996. Looking forward to working on a committee. Consider singing in our choir. Listen for discussions about planning the site selection and about reaching out as we continue to grow. We're all in this together and Jim and I and the other Elders will appreciate your thoughts.

This was written by Dick Warner, then Acting Clerk of the Session for the April 1996 "The Log".

In 2003 Phyllis Spencer of Woodlands Presbyterian Church had an idea to start a quilt for charity project in conjunction with the Woodlands Presbyterian Women. The project has grown with leaps and bounds since that first meeting in 2003. Not only has it changed names from Quilts for Charity to The Quilt Ministry, the group has become a truly nondenominational ministry.

The Ministry serves many charity and mission organizations, and provides comfort to many in need. Women from numerous denominations in and around Hot Springs Village now participate in this wonderful project. To date over 400 quilts have been made and distributed.

The beautiful work of these very dedicated women have been donated to Wounded Marines, Potter's Clay Celebrate Recovery graduates, Glenhaven Youth Ranch Students, and participants at Change Point (a program for girls in crisis). In addition, the quilts have provided comfort for individuals who are sick, who have faced crisis, and who have been effected by tornadoes as with the recent tornadoes in Mena and Dumas. The group is also now partnering with Red Cross coordinators in Hot Springs and the Village to supply quilts for those effected by fire and other disasters.

Ministry members include Phyllis Spencer, Moderator, Glenda Horton, Jeanine Preboski, Karen Sterzik, Linda Stuart, Harriet Reynolds, Sandy Paulsen, Beth Slone, JoAnn Behan, and Claudia Knudsen.

All quilting enthusiasts are encouraged and invited to join the ladies in this truly rewarding community service ministry. The group meets the second and fourth Mondays of the month from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. at Woodlands Presbyterian Church, 11 Ecuestre Drive in Hot Springs Village (off Desoto Blvd, behind Woodlands Auditorium). For more information contact Phyllis Spencer at 501-922-0666 or 501-984-1839.
