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 Food Pantry committee is requesting cold cereals, baked beans and canned chili for the month of October.
The Deacons meet again on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, at 7 p.m., in the Friendship House. But, don't forget to attend the joint Deacons/Session meeting on Sunday, October 15, 2017, immediately following worship. Snacks to share are suggested for the joint meeting.
Just a reminder, there is a flower chart downstairs. If you wish you place flowers on the communion table, please sign up accordingly on the flower chart provided and let the pastor and/or lay leader know so they can announce.
The Deacons will once again be sending goodie boxes to our special college students and members of the military for Halloween. Donations are appreciated. Items like microwaveable foods, candy, snack foods and pencils and pens are great ideas. Some items ship better than others--please keep that in mind when shopping. No heavy canned goods please--they are expensive to ship. The last day for donations is Sunday, October 22, 2017 (packing to be done at noon that day). All names and addresses must be given to Gail Miller.
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. Jeff and Christi will be with us for a brunch on Saturday, October 21 and staying at Sabbath House beginning October 18!
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.
Sabbath House and Gardens is a new ministry of our Church. Located in our historic manse, Sabbath House offers learning and retreat opportunities and is home to our New Worshiping Community. The Gardens include the Giving Garden, where we grow organic vegetables to share, and a Community Garden which offers sunny plots for members of the community. Visit the Sabbath House website for more information.
