SECOND CALL for a congregational meeting after worship today, November 4, to approve financing from the Presbyterian Investment and Loan Program. SECOND CALL for a congregational meeting next Sunday, November 11, after worship for the election of new officers.

 

 

 

 

THIS MORNING after worship we are “Extending the Table”, bringing worship into the world through a hands-on mission opportunity, Rise Against Hunger.  CPC is packing more than 12,000 nutrient-rich meals to be sent to hungry people all over the world. Volunteers of all ages are needed to join us in Fellowship Hall.  Unfortunately we have fallen short on the $3,507.48 needed to cover the cost of the meals, so donations will be gratefully accepted this morning and throughout the rest of the month. You will find a donation box in Fellowship Hall.

 

 

CENTRALCONNECTION, our after-school program for children grades K-5 on DASD early dismissal days, is this Wednesday, November 7, 1:30-5pm.  Margaret Van Gilder directs the program and CPC volunteers guide the students through prepared crafts, music and recreational activities.  Please contact Margaret at [email protected] if you’d like to volunteer.

CHRISTMAS OUTREACH.  Please help the Honey Brook Food Pantry make Christmas a little merrier by donating cranberry sauce, turkey or chicken gravy, stuffing mix (like Stove Top), and/or a large aluminum cooking pan for the Pantry’s Christmas distribution.  The pantry provides a turkey and all the fixings, and anticipates 250 families will receive the holiday food.  Place your items in either of the boxes in the narthex by November 25.  Thank you!

 

THANK YOU! On behalf of the Kids Central Playground campaign, thanks to all who came out for the Texas Roadhouse Dine-to-Donate Fundraiser last week. The response from both CPC and KCP families was overwhelming. The numbers aren’t in yet, but I was told it was “way busier than a regular Tuesday night”! Thank you again for supporting this exciting endeavor and for your continued support of Kids Central!     Robin Chiavetta, Director
