Souper Bowl of Caring! As a way to enjoy the Super Bowl and have fun for a cause, we will be collecting cans of soup to assist Cupboard by Grace and feed the hungry. Look for the containers in the narthex this week and Super Bowl Sunday, February 2nd. Bring your can goods and place them in the container for the team you hope will win the Super Bowl.

Common Threads

There is nothing “common” about the ladies in Common Threads. They are all unique individuals that share their talents with people that are suffering or are in need.

FROM OUR MISSIONARY

.

NEW OPPORTUNITIES ON THE HORIZON . . .

For the puzzle lovers in our congregation….Word has gotten out that there are a number of puzzle enthusiasts in our midst. As a result, I had the opportunity to purchase a number of puzzles from a recent auction I attended, and my mother (who is also an avid puzzle fan), is sharing a number of puzzles. All have been donated to our congregation to provide many challenging hours of fun, and hopefully fellowship opportunities. I hope to develop a small puzzle library, probably after the first of the year, whereby those interested will be able to check out puzzles for their enjoyment.

Who doesn’t enjoy a good movie? A friend of ours from our home church in Kansas recently inquired if First Presbyterian either already had a church library, or would be interested in starting one. I told her the church had a small library with various Bible studies previously used, resource books, etc. She has felt called to donate family Christian movies to churches and community libraries. Recently, she graciously donated over 75 DVDs of family Christian movies to our church! Some are well known, others are new to me. Thank you, Jan Brigham, for your gracious vision and donation!! As with the puzzles, I hope to organize these and make these available for checkout for individuals and/or families to enjoy after the first of the year. The church does have a popcorn cart and the means to show movies to a group…..Possible fellowship or community outreach opportunity?!?!?

If anyone has an interest in helping organize and develop plans to implement either of these wonderful opportunities, please contact me. ~Joyce Records
