Dear Members and Friends,

This week we will receive the Peace & Global Witness special offering as we observe World Communion Sunday with a celebration of The Lord’s Supper, and enjoy fellowship at the coffee hour after worship, hosted by the Deacons. Food donations are always welcomed.

Thanks to Cathy Palmer and Bonnie Reed for their beautiful duet of “Great is Thy Faithfulness.” 

Also thanks to all that donated to The Center for Prevention and Counseling. A gift of $67 was given to this organization. 

Betty Alpaugh’s funeral service was at our church on Monday. Thanks to Pastor Peter for leading a beautiful service, and also to all those that donated food and worked at the repast after the service.  The family was very grateful and made a generous donation to the Presbyterian Women and Deacons.
