2014 Touching Davidson County with Love

Saturday, April 12 is Touching Davidson County with Love, an annual event where several churches join together to help others and show God's love with skin on it. There are 4 types of projects: residential (homes owned by the people we will be helping), agency projects (American Children's Home, Crisis Ministry, and Kiwanis Camp), large group projects (nursing home visits, sewing, and cooking), and collecting for agency needs. To date we have about 30 projects in which most of them are residential needs.

Everyone has gifts to help out that day from youths to seniors; there is something each one of us could do that day. It can be from visiting nursing homes to helping with collections and home repairs. The project forms are posted on the bulletin board in the hallway outside the Fellowship Hall. Please take the time to review these sheets and sign up for a project. Some of the projects listed are generic by skill (i.e. painting or house cleaning) because it involves several homes. If you want to work together with a specific person, please make a note on the sheet, and the project leaders will try to accommodate you. The deadline for signing up is March 30, so the leaders will have time to assign everyone to the projects and be able to communicate the details back to participants.

2013 Thanksgiving Breakfast

On Thursday, November 28, First Presbyterian’s men will prepare our traditional Thanksgiving Breakfast. Breakfast will be served at 8:00 in the fellowship hall, and Communion will be celebrated. Mac Parrott and LA Freeman are coordinating this special event. Please plan on joining your church family and their guests for Thanksgiving breakfast.

We will receive our annual Thanksgiving Offering for the Barium Springs Home for Children during our Thanksgiving Breakfast on November 28. This special home helps children, youth, and families who are dealing with issues of abandonment, abuse, neglect, and poverty. It is the Home’s mission to remind them that they are not forgotten and to show them that they are loved.

Poinsettias for December 2013

Poinsettias will be used to decorate our sanctuary on December 8, 15, and 22. You may sponsor a poinsettia in honor or memory of a loved one. The plants cost $15.00 each, and you may order by calling Jeanna at the church office at 248-2140. Payment is due prior to the Sunday that your plant will be placed in the sanctuary; please give your payments to Jeanna. All orders must be received by Friday, November 22. We will be unable to accept orders after this date, as our supplier will not be able to obtain additional plants.

It's time for our Fall Chicken Pie Sale to raise extra funds that can go directly and immediately to the local helping agencies we support. It is our hope for this sale to go beyond the membership of the church, so we encourage everyone to invite their neighbors, friends and coworkers to order pies.

Large pies (which can serve 6-8) are $12; orders of 3 or more are $11 each. Small pies (which can serve 1-2) are $16 for a box of four pies (must be sold as whole boxes). The pies are "Moravian-style" (meat only, no veggies). Order forms are available at the church or may be downloaded and printed here, and all orders must be in by October 27.

Payment is due at the time orders are placed. Checks should be made payable to First Presbyterian Church. Pies may be picked up Saturday, November 2, 9:00 am-12:00 pm and Sunday, November 3, 12:00-1:00 pm. in the church fellowship hall.

The Presbyterian Table

Changes are afoot for the Wednesday Night Supper Club. They are moving their dinners to a new night (in hopes it will allow choir, handbell, and Men’s Bible Study members to participate and to allow us to visit a wider variety of restaurants), and they are taking a new name! They will reserve a table at a different restaurant each week, and anyone who wants to eat out is invited to come sit at "the Presbyterian table."

The Presbyterian Table will join up for dinner on Thursday nights. What doesn’t change is the time (still 6:00 PM), the premise (an informal group open to all with each person being responsible for his or her own expense), and the fun! We invite you to join us any week for good food, fellowship, and lots of laughter.
