Memorial will be partnering with First United Presbyterian Church in joint Confirmation Classes for six weeks beginning Sunday, April 25th for our youth grades 7th through 12th. Confirmation involves an affirmation of the Christian belief that is born in baptism. Confirmation is the first time a young person publicly confesses faith in Jesus Christ as his or her Lord and Savior. Confirmation ends with a service of worship wherein the confirmands are given an opportunity to speak for themselves about their personal relationship with Christ. You will be hearing more about this exciting joint partnership in the upcoming weeks. Also, we will be scheduling a meeting for the parents of children at Memorial in that age group on Thursday, April 8th where we will share more about the purpose, schedule, and curriculum for the classes. Prior to the meeting for the parents, if you are interested in getting more information please contact Cheryl Merritt, cmer919@prodigy. net or Tanita Toliver, firstname.lastname@example.org.

BLACK HISTORY ON YOUR PEW
Thank you for your attendance at our first in a series of Black History on Your Pew Zoom Events on this past Friday. For this month, we recognized Mrs. Anna Hood and Mr. Arthur Griffin. Thanks to our honorees, and to Amari Hood, Javari Hood, and Thierry Moss who did an outstanding job interviewing our honorees. Please continue to submit names for future events.
We are pleased to share that our church in collaboration with Statesville Avenue and First United Presbyterian churches will be working on a Black History Activity involving the youth from these three churches. The activity is entitled “Black History on Your Pew.” As a part of this project, our youth will be identifying and interviewing those current members in our respective churches who can be recognized as having an historical impact/contribution on our local, state and/or national community and the citizens of these communities. Areas can include: Business, Religion, Education, Political, Science/Technology/Medical, and Humanitarian. Once this information is gathered, it will be shared during a joint special event involving all three churches.
If you have the names of people who are current members in our church who have had an impact on our community from a historical perspective, please send the name to Cheryl Merritt, email@example.com or Tanita Toliver, firstname.lastname@example.org , members of our Education and Equipping Ministry team.

A Prescription for Possibility
Kwame Amanfoh, a technologist at the Charlotte Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Center and founder of Victory Vision Care, responds to Christ’s call of abundance by providing free eyecare services twice each year to Ghana’s rural poor.
The Presbyterian Women Organization of Memorial is grateful for the blessing to help support Mr. Amanfoh’s ministry by collecting gently used prescription eyewear. The collection of used prescription eyewear has begun and will continue through June 2021. Your gift today of your old prescription eyewear and/or your financial contribution will bring clearer vision to sisters and brothers an ocean away.

Memorial Presbyterian Logo
At the Session meeting November 11, 2020 the Session voted to utilize this logo as we attempt to establish a brand for our church.
Over the next few weeks and months you will see a change as we implement this more modernistic logo across all printed aspects that represent Memorial Presbyterian Church.
We wish to thank our own Darrell Anderson for his creativity and design.
