Dearest Holy Way Friends,

I am hoping you all are enjoying your week! I have to say, the weather is just beautiful. This past weekend we welcomed and installed 9 members to The Holy Way which is a cause for Celebration. After church, we hosted a welcome gathering in the courtyard where we spent time in fellowship, eating, talking and laughing together. Many of you shared with me how much you enjoyed this time, so with the change of weather, we will be hosting this hospitality fellowship time after church 2 times a month. I hope you will look forward to this time together.

 

Let me introduce these amazing new members to you:  Sheila Martin, Jan Martin, Wayne McKee, Esther Boals, Bill Boals, Sheila Perry, Soren Perry, Peggy Hale & Merlin Hale. I hope you will all spend time getting to know these lovely folks at Sermon Debrief, Breakfast at Richies, or other church events.

 

Also, I want to let you know, by popular demand Thoughtful Thursdays is still on the schedule (even though it is not marked on the calendar). Please see the link below.

 

Next, after such a busy summer schedule, we are closing the office next Wednesday, Thursday AND Friday, Oct 13-15th.

 

Looking forward to seeing you all Sunday at Church or on Live Stream!

Hugs and Blessings!

Pastor Tina

Dearest Holy Way Friends,                                              

 

It’s Saturday, and as usual there is a lot going on around here. We are excited that our Snowbirds are coming home, so I affectionately started a list during Thoughtful Thursdays called “The Return of the Snowbirds.” John Lambe and Marilyn Plitnik are the first names on the list. If you would like to be added to my list so I can keep track, just send me an e-mail with your return date!

 

October 3rd New Member Installation. During Worship Service we will be installing at least Nine (9) new members! Following the service, please welcome our new members in the courtyard, while enjoying coffee, donuts and bagels. Please plan of attending this day, we will also be celebrating the Lord’s Supper. Don’t forget to have your elements ready at home for live streaming too!

 

Saturday October 30, Trunk or Treat  3:00-5:00pm - This will be the first of an annual event to welcome children and families to The Holy Way to trick or treat in a safe environment. Stephen is coordinating this event and will be sending out all of the details in the newsletter next week!  We hope you can participate in this Community Outreach event!

 

Thank you for asking how Kathy is doing. She wanted me say how much she appreciates your care and calls and she is doing just fine. She had a 24 hour bug, and is all back to normal.

 

Also, we are maintaining the following COVID Protocols at the church at this time:

 

1.       It is recommended that everyone wear a mask. Some of you expressed to us     that you simply cannot breath with one on due to medical reasons, we                 understand, so then let’s try to distance if possible.

 

2.       Please, sanitize your hands when you come into the building. We have those two big while block shaped sanitizers outside in the courtyard for you.

 

3.       Please no more holding hands on “Let There Be Peace on Earth” (unless it’s   your family), but instead “Lift your hands in Praise to God” at the end.

 

4.       From now on I will be saying Hello-Good-Bye to you outside in the Courtyard,       so that we are not all bunched up in the Narthex.

 

 

Remember you can still stay connected during the week and with:

Update from Pastor Tina…

August 21, 2021

 

Dearest Holy Way Friends,                                              

 

It’s Saturday, and there is quite a buzz about the big Magic Show today here at the Holy Way! Flyers were hand delivered to ALL local elementary and middle schools, hundreds of homes, many businesses, along with other social media announcements. We hope to see you too at 1:00pm. There will be Pre-Show Strolling Magic before the main show begins.

 

Also, our Session met this week and had a heartfelt discussion about the rising COVID numbers, and CDC recommendations and how Session feels is the best way for the Holy Way to keep our congregation safe as we worship together.  This is what was decided to update the COVID Protocols the church has in place.

 

1.       It is recommended that everyone wear a mask. Some of you expressed to me   that you simply cannot breath with one on, we understand, so then let’s try to distance if possible.

 

2.       Please, sanitize your hands when you come into the building. We have those two big while block shaped sanitizers outside in the courtyard for you.

 

3.       We are going to keep the choir of 6 people (they are spread out and far away)        but are asking the congregation to instead - “Sing in your hearts” please.

 

4.       Please no more holding hands on “Let There Be Peace on Earth” (unless it’s   your family), but instead “Lift your hands in Praise to God” at the end.

 

5.       From now on I will be saying Hello-Good-Bye to you outside in the Courtyard,       so that we are not all bunched up in the Narthex.

 

 

 

Remember you can still stay connected during the week!

Dearest Holy Way Friends,  

I hope you had an amazing weekend and enjoying the beautiful green landscape!  

Just a reminder what we have going on this week at The Holy Way if you want to mark your calendars!

The Big Magic Show, Membership Class Part II, Sermon  Debrief and Thoughtful Thursdays!  

 

The Big Magic Show is this Saturday, August 21st at 1:00 pm. (Sanctuary) This  magical presentation is featuring Stephen the Spectacular along with other  professional magicians from Tucson who are donating their time and talents to the  Holy Way and Community for this amazing Family Outreach event that is Free. 

 

Membership Class Part II, August 18th, 2:00-4:00 pm. (Sanctuary) Great for those  seeking to become members, or for existing members or regular attenders who want  to learn more about the Presbyterian church and what we are all about at the Holy  Way. It is also a great way to meet new people, and I am encouraging everyone to  attend, even if you missed part I.
