  • March 27. It's a beautiful Easter Sunday morning. After hearing Parson John's inspirational message entitled "Butterfly Living In a Caterpillar World!" we all go outside and release dozens of butterflies into the sky. And, we welcome home hermanos Marcelo and Nedda Soriano, who return to us after being gone for three months in Perú. Also with us for the first time in several months is Barbara Johnson, who is recovering well from a serious back injury.
  • ChrisMarch 19. Christopher H. Ley's Eagle Scout court of honor takes place at the First Presbyterian Church. According to the program of this event:
    Christopher's Eagle Scout Project benefited Orangethorpe United Methodist Church's Agape Kitchen ministry. He planned and led a team that crocheted 9 sleeping mats to benefit the homeless that are served breakfast every Sunday morning. Over a period of five months, his team of 30 persons spent approximately 368 hours cutting up plastic bags, weaving them into "plyarn" and crocheting mats that measured about 3' x 6'.
    Your webservant has frequently worked with Chris at food distributions and at Orangethorpe Learning Center and has the good fortune of attending BSA Troop 1201's court of honor today. We congratulate Chris, and also his parents Rob and Gina and his brother Kevin, upon his great achievement.
