Balloon-A-Grams Are Back!

We are doing it again- Balloon-A-Grams in February!! The Youth will be hosting another fundraiser to help offset the costs of the Mission Trip to Tennessee with the Appalachian Service Project this summer. As is our tradition, the youth will be delivering “Balloon-a-Grams,” to friends, loved ones, and neighbors in the surrounding communities.  These little bags of fun contain candy, a balloon, and a hand-written card. All you need to do is come to the Jones Room after worship on January the 20th, 27th, February 3rd, or the church office until Wednesday February 6 and fill out a form for where the “gram” needs to be delivered – we take care of the rest! We do ask that the recipient live within a 5-mile radius of the church.

We will be delivering the packages of fun on Sunday, February 10 (the Sunday before Valentine’s Day) after worship at 10:30.

Thanks in advance, and we can’t wait to see you at the table!

PCWS Book Club

Monday, January 26, 2019, 7:30 p.m.

After lively discussion, Book Club members came to a consensus on the choices for next year’s reading material. The selections cover a wide range of materials: fiction, nonfiction, historical fiction, history and social justice. There is something for just about anyone—sorry, no fantasy or traditional mystery books. In January, the group will discuss Anxious to Talk about It: Helping White Christians Talk about Racism by Carolyn B. Helsel.  All are welcome!
