Mission Calendar for 2011

Mount Hermon will follow the PCUSA Calendar for Mission observance  in 2011. The first mission project of the year is coming up February 6th - Souper Bowl Sunday. "Souper Bowl of Caring" started as a youth group project in a Presbyterian Church several years ago and has grown into a national movement involving over 260,000 people. Donations are gathered in a soup pot during Sunday worship on this national football Sunday. Our offering goes towards some of the many mission projects administered through our Presbytery.

Other special dates on Mount Hermon's calendar include:
February 27th : "Celebrate the Gifts of Women," featuring the dedication of the bench given in memory of Carol Bordaneli at a reception following worship.
In March we will observe World Day of Prayer (3/4) and Ash Wednesday (3/9).
In May we will honor our graduates with a reception following worship.
In June we'll gather for our annual Pentecost picnic. Everyone is encouraged to invite a friend  to share in this spring event.
