ANNOUNCEMENTS

  1. Vacation Bible School (VBS)

    VBS 2017 Hero Central - Discover Your Strength in God! The church will be full of joy, singing, learning and fun this week as we host Vacation Bible School, Cokesbury's Hero Central! The congregation is invited to join us for closing ceremony, Friday, July 28 at 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the sanctuary. We'll learn the characteristics of a true hero (heart, courage, wisdom, hope and power) as we commit to our hero code: "Do good! Seek peace and go after it!" Psalm 34: 14b

  2. "Moo"vie Night and Make Your Own Ice Cream Sundaes! Friday July 21 at 7:30 pm
    Our Feature Film: The Iron Giant is an adventurous animated film taking place in the 1950's about a giant alien robot and a boy. Bring your family, friends, and neighbors. Fun for everyone!
  3. Summer Worship begins at 10 AM
  4. 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.
  5. Summer Bible Study  There will be a Bible Study led by the Rev. Suzanne Schafer-Coates (our Parish Associate and Meadow Lakes Minister) in the Church Library at 7:00 p.m. on five Monday nights this summer: July 10, 17, 24, 31 & August 7. The study is one of Adam Hamilton's. It's not a Bible Study, as such, although it is based on the Bible, and uses Biblical texts as we wrestle with the topics of the study. The study is called: "HALF TRUTHS, God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things the Bible Doesn't Say."

    The lessons are:
    1) Everything Happens for a Reason,
    2) God Helps Those Who Help Themselves,
    3) God Won't Give You More Than You Can Handle,
    4) God Said It, I Believe It, That Settles It,
    5) Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin.
    I look forward to you joining us. It will be fun!
  6. Youth Ministry
    Giving Wall - Support our Youth   Thank you for supporting the Mission Trip Committed Fund!

    We leave Saturday, July 29! The Giving Wall was a huge success, with nearly all the necessary funds having been raised. So we invite you to take an envelope from the mobile giving wall and just pray! Pray for the person whose picture is in your envelope, and don't worry about returning the envelope to us. With your prayers and by the grace of God, we'll return safely on Sunday, August 6. We can't wait to share the trip with you on Mission Trip Sunday, August 21. Thank you for your generous support!
  7. Lay Readers   We are looking for Lay Readers for July to December 2017. We welcome new readers to join our team, and would be happy to see your name for one or two Sundays on the sign-up sheet which may be found on the bulletin board in Fellowship Hall. Thank you! If you have any questions, please call Joan Fraser.
  8. Keep the Coffee Hour going during the Summer We need people to sign-up for Summer Coffee Hour. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Heidi Knowlton at (609)799-1724 or cabotk@comcast.net.
  9. Skeet's Pantry JULY is CANNED SOUP and TUNA FISH Month for SKEET'S PANTRY!
    We know that sounds like a strange combination - but that's our particular need for this month, though not probably mixed together! As always, any food you can donate is very welcome, and we thank you VERY much! Remember that Skeet's Pantry keeps distributing food throughout the summer months, too, so if you aren't into soup or tuna fish, please feel free to consider:

    PEANUT BUTTER, GRAPE JELLY, PASTA, PASTA SAUCE, CANNED BEANS or CANNED FRUIT

    Here's hoping you have a great summer, and be assured that your generosity will make the summer better for many, many families in our community.

     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.
  10. 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!
