              STEWARDSHIP/MISSION/FINANCE  UPDATE

  

Then on Saturday, October 20th, Ninety volunteers from many churches including First Irwin, Delmont, West Newton, Congruity, Newlonsburg, Level Green, No Walls, CUP and friends packed 25,000 meals for RISE AGAINST HUNGER. The volunteers did a great job setting up, packing and cleaning up in record time. Thanks again to everyone who donated shoes, purchased Bon-Ton coupon books or fleece blankets and supported the PW Tea which earned the $7,000 necessary to purchase the materials packed in the meals. What a great team effort!!!  Look for the pictures of volunteers in action.

                                         ********************************************


         On October 28th, we celebrated our annual Harvest Home. The sanctuary was          decorated with the fruits of the harvest. The mission speaker was Dawn Hennessey from Angel Arms in Latrobe. She shared about her ministry to help mothers and their babies that are born addicted. It was heartbreaking but there is hope because of caring people who share their love and resources. If you would like to get involved, they are looking for volunteers. Then we enjoyed fellowship and a covered dish dinner hosted by the Deacons

STEWARDSHIP  CAMPAIGN

   As Thanksgiving is approaching we can be truly grateful for all our blessings. The Bible tells us everything we have is a gift from God.  So once again the Stewardship Committee with the approval of Session is asking YOU to make a commitment to our church. This act is between you and God so please pray about it and let God lead you to the right decision.

We are asking you to complete an Estimate of Giving Card and return it by Sunday, November 18th.  We will NOT be sending them out in the mail this year. They will be available in a display in the narthex. If your blessings have increased, we hope you will consider an increase in your giving.

 Just fill in the amount you plan to give each week in 2019 and sign your name, put it in an envelope and drop it in the collection plate. Our committee will be finalizing the 2019 budget in December. 

                                             ****************************************************

                                                              

SCRIP CARDS orders can be placed the first Sunday of each month. Please think about ordering SCRIP cards to support the church. . Some cash and carry cards are available every Sunday for purchase.  Are you shopping at Giant Eagle because of the fuel perks? Buy Giant Eagle cards from CUP and you are helping the church and yourself at the same time. Not sure what gift cards you are going to need next month? Purchase a Giant Eagle card and you can purchase any card at Giant Eagle you need. Yes, you still get the fuel perks. If you have questions about this program see Judy or Lisa.

                       ********************************************************************************

     

Collect Boxtops for Education and deposit them in the box in the narthex. Many products have several boxtops this time of year. These boxtops are each worth 10 cents. We send them to an Indian Reservation where they can purchase much needed supplies for their school.
