              STEWARDSHIP/MISSION/FINANCE  UPDATE

  

PW members made 20 fleece blankets this fall. Those blankets will provide warmth to children and adults when they are distributed at the Life Way           Pregnancy Center in Latrobe, Angel Arms in Latrobe, the Blackburn Center in Greensburg, the Navajo Holiness Mission in Arizona and the Sunset Gap Mission in Tennessee.

THANKS to everyone who donated shipping costs and packed shoeboxes for   Operation Christmas Child. Forty two boxes are on their way to waiting children around the world. Wouldn’t it be great to see their faces when they open the    boxes.

Every generous act of giving.  .  . is from above –James 1:17

 

The JOY OFFERING will be collected during the month of December.

Our gifts support leaders in our Church and world—past, present, and future. Please give generously. IF WE ALL DO A LITTLE, IT ADDS UPTO A LOT!

Fifty percent of your gifts to Christmas Joy provide assistance for current and retired church workers and their families with critical financial need. The other half of your gifts make it possible for students to learn and grow in faith at Presbyterian-related schools and colleges equipping communities of color.

 

Don’t forget to complete your Estimate of Giving Card for 2019. The cards are available in the church narthex. You may also write a note to the church treasurer and state how much you intend to give in 2019. Giving envelopes for the new year will be available for pick-up December 9th.

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.
