ANNOUNCEMENTS

  1. Meeting of the Congregation  A Congregational Meeting has been called by the session immediately following the 10:30 a.m. Worship Service on February 26, 2017, for the sole purpose of electing church officers.
  2. WEBSITE REDESIGN SURVEY
    Last year the Outreach Committee decided to pursue a project to design a new website that demonstrates our mission to our community and the world. We are beginning this process and have a survey listing all the topics that are on our current website.

    If you use the website, will you please indicate on this online form what is most essential to you? We will consider how you use the website in reconstructing the new one.

    We are hoping to collect this information by February 19. Thank you for your voice in this work of outreach for our church. We value your feedback.
  3. WINTER COAT DRIVE for TRENTON RESCUE MISSION: Our church is sponsoring a 4-week winter coat drive to benefit the Trenton Rescue Mission. Can you help? Clean, coats in good condition may be donated January 25 - February 22. The collection box, labeled "Trenton Rescue Mission"will be located in the "mailbox room", next to Skeet's Pantry. Hats, gloves and scarves are welcome too. Thanks for your support! Contact Anne Gordon with questions.
  4. Lenten Bible Study : Lent in the Library: "Every gift from God reveals God's love, but no gift reveals God's love more than the gift of the cross." Join us for a Lenten Bible Study, following Max Lucado's He Chose the Nails (quoted above), on Sunday mornings in the Library. March 5, 12, 19, 26 and April 2, from 9:15 - 10:15, led by Pastors Lou, Hannah and Suzanne.
  5. Youth Ministry Youth group will meet throughout the year on Sundays, 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for middle school and 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for high school. Youth group is all about community. You get to be goofy as we play games, to be serious as we learn about God, to be passionate as we serve others, to be curious as we ask questions, to be contemplative as we pray together and most of all, you get to be you!
  6. Adopt a Johnsonburg Cabin: On Friday, March 31 a team of workers from our church will be heading up to Camp Johnsonburg (www.campjburg.org) for the weekend full of good fellowship, hard work and great food. Want to join us? We will return Sunday, April 2 in the afternoon. All you need is the willingness to serve and old work clothes. We will supply the rest. If you want to join our mission team or help in any other way, please contact Stan Dickerson or Anne Gordon.

    Our church has been a supporter of Camp Johnsonburg for decades, by attending youth and women retreats, summer camp and leadership training programs. The beautiful outdoor chapel overlooking the lake was conceived by Bob Haverkamp and funded by our church. Worship services and weddings are held there on regular basis. Johnsonburg is indeed a "place apart" that changes people lives! Over the years some cabins have been a bit neglected and need caring hands to bring them back to life...that's where we can help. We have adopted one of these cabins and will begin work on it. In the future new mattresses will need to be provided.
  7. Looking for a Church Home?   Learn what it means to be a member of First Presbyterian. We offer members of all ages opportunities to join in fellowship and expand their faith experiences. Please email the Church Office.
  8. Choir Members Wanted! If you have considered joining the choir, now is the time! Our regular Thursday evening rehearsals are 7:30 - 9:00 p.m.
  9. Lay Readers   Sign up now on the notice board in Fellowship Hall. New readers welcome. If you have any questions, please call Joan Fraser.
  10. Coffee Hour Hosts Wanted! Coffee Hour is a great time to meet and catch up with friends and members of the congregation as well as make our visitors feel welcome. There has been a shortage of host volunteers for coffee hour. Please consider hosting coffee hour. The Coffee Hour sign-up sheet is in Fellowship Hall so be sure to check out the available dates that will be convenient for you to host. For more information, please contact Ed Luffey at eluffey@gmail.com.
  11. Skeet's Pantry February is All about Love - We at Skeet's Pantry are asking you to consider sending some of your love to our families in need - but in the form of wholesome food rather that chocolate candy, as you probably have already figured out!

    We'll need to replenish our shelves with all of the same good healthy food this month, and thus we're once again asking you to help us by donating:

    Peanut Butter & Jelly - Pasta & Pasta Sauce - Cereal - Canned Fruit - Soup - Tuna

     Please drop items at the church office or in the wheel barrow outside the Sanctuary during church on Sunday. NO OUT-OF-DATE food can be accepted. Thank you.
  12. Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) The first Thursday of every month volunteers serve the evening meal at TASK. We leave the church in the church van at 2:30 p.m. and return by 5:30 p.m. It is a great way to serve God and others. No experience necessary, just a heart to serve. Please contact Anne Gordon or church office if you are up to the TASK!
