All-Church Summer Mission Project! 

School’s out, it’s officially summer at PCWS, and it’s time to have some fun with Mission! In addition to continuing our hugely popular monthly pop-up projects, on June 23 we kicked off our BIG summer project: Let’s Make a House a Home. 

This project will benefit Facing Forward to End Homelessness, a Chicago-based agency that provides permanent supportive housing and clinical case management services to families and individuals in Chicago who have experienced chronic homelessness and are living with a disability. 

Mission will provide as many laundry baskets as our congregation, neighbors and friends are able to fill. All of us just need to bring the stuff to fill them. We’ll have display laundry baskets in the Jones Room, and various places throughout the church with tags noting items we’ll all be gathering for the baskets. Simply take a tag or two or three, put them in a spot you see every day, purchase the stuff you’ve committed to and place it in one of the display baskets.   Click here for a flyer to print out and take to the store!  We invite all to help us Make a House a Home!

Giddy up! … join us for a Western-themed Kick-Off Sunday on August 25 as we start up our fall programming! Our children learned at our Yeehaw! VBS this summer that God Gives Good Gifts. Join us as we celebrate God’s gifts and kick off an exciting program year!

There will be activities for all ages, including wonderful music provided by member Kevin McDermott and his band Ring Shout & Friends. We’ll have a traditional country BBQ lunch with pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, fruit salad, green salad, and, of course, apple pie and ice cream for dessert. Our middle school through high school students (JUPYs and UPYs) will assist with games, face painting, chalk art, cookie walk, bouncy house, scavenger hunt, etc.

Kick-Off Sunday is a great chance to learn about ways to get involved at PCWS. Moderators of church committees will have information about their programs and there will be sign-ups as well. We look forward to seeing you on August 25 in worship and after worship for our Kick-Off!
