Community Food Pantry
OurFood Pantry has served the community for more than forty years. The pantry is open on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. If you would like to donate of the Food Pantry, please leave your items in the church kitchen or deliver them to the pantry during operating hours.
The Boy Scout food drive is Saturday, November 4, 2017. The food collected is donated to our pantry and is very important to our success. All are welcome to join us that day to sort and shelve the food. Any time you can give is appreciated.
The Deacons will meet on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, at 7 p.m., in the Friendship House.
The Deacons are sponsoring a mitten/glove drive for the families in Kentucky. The items will be delivered with the Christmas gifts that go to Kentucky (information on the Kentucky project to be forthcoming). A mitten/glove tree is located in the large Sunday school room waiting for your donations.
A Christmas cookie exchange is planned for Sunday, December 10, 2017, immediately following worship. Anyone interested in participating should see Joan Fowler to sign up.
For November, the food pantry committee is requesting toiletry items.
The Food Pantry committee is looking for some people to help out the days we're open--2nd and 4th Wednesday. If you can't commit as a regular helper, you can sign up as a substitute. See Joan or Dan Fowler, Donna Charles or Gail Miller if you have any interest.
A flower chart is located in the hallway across from the church office. Please mark the date you wish to donate and display flowers in the front of the sanctuary. Let Reverend Zoon or the lay leader know if you want your flowers mentioned on a particular Sunday.
Our congregation is connected to PC(USA) mission co-workers Jeff and Christi Boyd in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Christi serves as Facilitator for Women and Children's Interests; Jeff is Regional Liaison for Central Africa. Christi and Jeff recently visited us and gave an inspiring presentation on their work and ideas for what we can do to support their work.
Our Sunday school classes for all ages meet from 10 to 10:45 a.m. on the first floor of the church. Everyone welcome!
It's always a treat when the children join us at worship with a skit or a song.
We care about the Earth
We are one of four congregations in Monmouth Presbytery that have been certified as Earth Care Congregations. To become certified, we took the "Earth Care Pledge" and completed activities and projects in the fields of worship, education, facilities, and outreach.
