THANK YOU to our Sweet Dreams Quilting Ministry. We received this message from Natalie S.:  “I just wanted to express my gratitude for the beautiful quilt given to my 4-month-old son while in the Chester County Hospital. It was horrible seeing him so sick as a first time mom, and his quilt comforted both of us during his stay. It’s now being used for tummy time! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. God bless.”

 

 

OUR NOVEMBER EXTENDING THE TABLE is Rise Against Hunger.  Immediately following worship on Sunday, November 4, join us in Fellowship Hall where we will be assembling 12,000 highly nutritious dehydrated meals for the hungry and vulnerable in our world.  These meals are composed of rice, soy, vegetables and 23 essential vitamins and minerals, and are used primarily to support school feeding programs. We hope to have as many volunteers as possible for this multi-generational, fun-filled activity as we seek to end hunger in our lifetime.

 

 

FIRST CALL FOR A MEETING OF THE CONGREGATION AND CORPORATION of Central Presbyterian Church, to be held Sunday, November 11 immediately after worship at 10:30 am. for the purpose of electing new officers and approving financing from Presbyterian Investment and Loan Program.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  NO WONDER!  this Wednesday, October 31.  You can sign up for the Wonder dinner that will be held on Wednesday, November 7 at the Welcome Center or online at www.cpcdowningtown.org/wonder-dinner-sign-up.

CHRISTMAS OUTREACH.  Let’s support the Honey Brook Food Pantry’s Christmas Giveaway.  Please join us each week in November to support the Food Pantry by bringing cranberry sauce, stuffing, and aluminum roasting pans to the donation boxes.  We are hoping to collect enough supplies to support 250 families this year.

 

PROGRESSIVE DINNER COMING SOON!  Please mark your calendar for Saturday, November 10, for an evening of socializing and sharing good food with church friends, going from house to house. Everyone who participates is asked to bring a dish to share and/or host a course.  Questions?  Contact Cathy Hankes, Linda Yurkutat or Sally Frederick.  Sign up at the Welcome Center.

 

LUNCH HELPERS FOR GOOD WORKS.  Every 4th Saturday of the month, Good Works volunteers give their time and talents to help homeowners in need. These generous workers need sustenance to keep their energy going with all the work they do, so if you would like to help provide lunch on work days to these hard working volunteers, a sign-up sheet will be at the Welcome Center.  The Mission committee provides funds to cover any cost.  Please contact Kathie Marks or Joanne Bilyew for any information on how to help.

 

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME ends next Sunday, November 4.  Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour to enjoy an extra hour of sleep.
