News & Announcements

Summer Worship Hours  There will be no change to our worship schedule during June and August. We will worship at our regular times—8:30 am & 11:00 am with Sunday School at 9:45 am.

“The Chosen” Bible Study  The last meeting of “The Chosen” Bible Study is this Tuesday, May 30th from 11:30 am—1:30 pm. We will likely move on to a study of The Chosen: Season 2 this Fall.

2023 Offering Envelopes  A few sets of envelopes are still on the table near the Main Entryway. Remember:

  • Numbers are reassigned, you may have a different number than you had last year.
  • Please do not use old envelopes because the numbers may not match.
  • If you are using plain white envelopes or pew envelopes for your offerings, please write your name on the envelope if you want to receive credit for your giving.

Cans for Cameroon  Summertime means more picnics and barbecues. Remember to save your aluminum cans from your summer gatherings! We are still collecting cans to recycle for Cameroon. You can drop them off at the Church by placing them in the black garbage can in the lower parking lot. It’s next to the dumpster and labeled “Cans for Cameroon.” The money we receive from recycling is used to support the Bakossi Literacy Project in Cameroon, Africa. The literacy project helps to train and financially support teachers who help the Bakossi people to read the New Testament in their native language.

6th Annual McDonald Presbyterian Church Summer Week of Service – McDonald Presbyterian Church has invited us to participate in their annual Summer Week of Service July 24 – 29. Volunteers of all ages and skill levels will be sent out in small work groups to complete home improvements. There are numerous ways to volunteer during the week. They need prayer partners, cooks (dinner donations), kitchen staff, yard workers, painters, masons, woodworkers, electricians, housecleaners—just to name a few. There’s a job for everyone! You can volunteer for the whole week or just one day—whatever works for your schedule. Volunteer forms are available in the Main Entryway this morning. There are also homeowner applications for anyone who may need minor home improvements. You must be age 55 or older or on documented disability to qualify. Both volunteer forms and homeowner applications are due to McDonald Presbyterian by June 15th. Read more or download forms here: www.mcdonaldpres.org/community-outreach
