The Presbyterian Women school supplies project is coming to a close. We have given the Edinburg Common School a check for $200 for earbuds and earphones and have received money for the Northville schools but have not yet given it to them. If you still wish to donate for Northville, these items are needed: 2″ binders, composition books, rulers, cinch saks (drawstring backpacks), glue sticks, 2-pocket folders, 3×5 index cards, and dry erase markers. Thank you for your support for this project. If you have any questions, please contact Pam Hanke.
We are nearing the completion of the collecting/revising the information found in our church directory. If Peg has not caught up to you to have you check your info in the latest directory, or if Georgia has not captured you so she can take your picture, please make a point of seeing us so we can get this done. If you have family that you know is in the directory but who are not in church frequently, would you please check out their info and let us know if there are any additions or corrections. Likewise, if they want to have their picture in the directory they need to make a point of getting to see Georgia, preferably on a Sunday. Please do this ASAP. Thank you.
We are commanded to love our neighbors, to help others, so this year the Sunday School class collection through the “Quarter Tube” will support the Presbyterian Disaster Relief Fund. You can help the children meet their goal by remembering a quarter or two for the tube passed every week at coffee hour. The Disaster Relief Fund helps those affected by hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, tornadoes, etc. The children thank you for your support.
Join us again this year for the ever-popular Basket Bonanza Silent Auction Saturday, October 6th from 10am-1pm at the Red Barn on Main St.
Baskets of all sizes and themes will be available, for all ages. Bid early and often and get a Great Bargain… (or two or more!) They always make terrific gifts!
PLUS, a Huge variety & amount of homemade soups, chili & baked goods !!!
The Basket Bonanza part is being chaired again this year by Jane Swanson and it’s time to start planning a theme and gathering items for a basket. If you need help with a theme, need a basket, would rather donate some items toward a basket or money to help finish off a basket, just call Jane. She is ready to help. Great ideas from past years might be a child’s toy basket, children’s books, sundae basket, cleaner’s basket, wine basket, cat or dog basket, canned goods & jelly, guest room, Italian theme, sports basket, DVD movie night, or pies.
The fall season is fast approaching and the Christian Education program for our children will start on Sept. 9th. We have only 2 teachers at this time and they will need your help. Could you substitute on occasions when the regular teachers have other plans? Could you volunteer to just do the activity part of a lesson occasionally? Could you assist the teacher when there are more than 4 children in attendance? Can you think of anything more important than teaching our children? Please let Rebecca, Mimi Raffetto, or Carol Hawley know how and when you would be willing to help.
Steadfast has a potluck supper and short business meeting on Wednesday, September 12th, at 6pm. All women members and friends of our church are welcome. For further information, contact Carol Hawley or Pam Hanke. Hostesses are Jane Ferguson and Connie Weaver.
It’s time to return the World Hunger boxes you have been filling this summer. They can be left in the Narthex in Northville Church any time in September. The Presbyterian Women wish to thank all who participated in this mission project.
The Methodist Women have invited Steadfast members and friends to their church Wednesday, October 10th, at 6:30pm for a talk by their former minister, Kathy Reese, about her trip to Jerusalem.
