No service was held at the request of family. We did remember her in worship several Sunday’s later and on All Saint’s Day that year. She was active in worship pretty near to the time of her death.

I run a local nonprofit (Little Hands Can) that gets kids connected to the community through community service and am looking for a way to get our kids involved in helping refugees. Do you do anything as a church that we could help out with?

Check out our website at littlehandscan.org.

Can’t wait to hear back from you! Just email me at miriam@littlehandscan.org. This could be a great partnership.

She would remind me of the greeting that would resound through her home church in Jerusalem on Easter morning: “Criste Aneste!” and the response: “Aneste Criste!”

Recalling this, I pondered what had become of this dear woman. Many times over the years I would go to her home on the anniversary of the death of her father, Zarmeyer. We could have been at the cemetery first, and then met up at her home with a half dozen or so other friends to celebrate with a traditional dish of ground meat combined with grain.

The notice that I was from the Register-Guard upon her death mentions that “no service was planned.” I’m hoping in my heart that one took place at Central, if she was still connected there.

Christ is risen, is risen indeed.

Mercedes Yeretzian

Mercedes Zarmayr Yeretzian of Eugene died Sept. 15 of age-related causes at age 89. No service is planned.

She was born April 20, 1920, in Jerusalem, Israel, to Zarmayr and Rosa Pirapanian Yeretzian.

She attended the Armenian school in Jerusalem.

She worked as a secretary for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency.

Arrangements by Rest-Haven Memorial Park & Funeral Home in Eugene.

Please call Barbara Fischer, office manager and ask here to send you what you need. I can’t attach one to this reply and all I have are drafts. She can send you a normal bulletin in whatever format you want. It is printed on 11×17 folded in half. It is a large bulletin to accommodate our elderly congregation members. Barbara can be reached at 541-345-8724 or centralpresbyterianchurch.att.net

Please don’t hesitate to ask again but this year we are hosting a Christian Disciples youth group who is working at Opportunity Village that week.

Comment on Church Staff by Rachel Palfini http://www.centraleugene.org/church-staff/#comment-838 Wed, 11 Feb 2015 21:13:51 +0000 http://www.centraleugene.org/?page_id=5500#comment-838 Hello Central Presbyterian,

My name is Rachel Palfini and I am one of the Spring Break Service Trips Interns at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington. Luchy McWhorter, at the UUCE, suggested I contact you to see if you can help us with housing for our upcoming Spring Break Service Trip.

Every spring break, Whitman sends out four trips of students to different regions of the country to focus on a specific social issue. This year, one of our trips is going to Eugene and is focused on environmental conservation and restoration. During the trip, students do hands on service work during the day as well as attend educational information sessions from other non-profits in the Eugene area. This year we are working with Friends of Buford Park, Friends of Trees, BRING Recycling Center, Oregon Wild, the Sierra Club and a bunch of other organizations.

I’m sending this email to see if your church would be interested in hosting our students (10 students and 1 staff adviser) for the week (March 21-29, 2015). Last year we stayed with the First United Methodist Church, but they said they have been significantly busier this year and are thus unable to accommodate us.

In the past, churches have housed us in one of their basement rooms (often the youth group room) and given us access to their kitchen facilities as well as bathrooms. Groups cook all of their meals together, which is why we would need access to a kitchen. That being said, we can be very flexible around the church’s planned activities. The trip itinerary is pretty packed though, so students would mainly be in the church from dinner time to breakfast every day (6 pm-8 am). We would also be happy to move our sleeping bags into a closet or corner so you could still have access to the room during the day.

If you’d like to learn more about our service trip program or ask any other questions about housing, I would be happy to set up a phone call with you.

Thank you so much and I hope to hear from you soon.

Rachel Palfini

I am writing from Moreland Presbyterian in SE Portland. We are looking to update our Sunday worship bulletins, which are sadly old fashioned. I am wondering if you would be willing to share a copy of one of your regular worship bulletins with us? We would like to see the formats that other churches in our area are using. If willing, a word doc or pdf would be preferred.

Thank you so much. And please let me know if you have any questions.
