Your help needed for the Homeless Count. The annual Terre Haute homeless count is Wed., Jan. 23 from 11am – 2pm. This is extremely important to ensure federal and state funding to our region. We are seeking volunteers to help 10:15-12:15pm and/or 12:15-end; Gilbert Park Shelter (across from former Lighthouse Mission at Wabash & 14th). We are also in need of donations of coats, blankets, heavy socks, stocking caps, warm gloves, or cash to purchase such items. Items can be dropped off starting in January at designated table in Fellowship Hall through Sunday prior. Volunteer sign up will also be on table. See Susan Hoffman for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org; 812-232-4645).
Per Capita – Every Presbyterian congregation has the opportunity to pay an annual per capita assessment to the denomination. Central Presbyterian, maintaining its traditional support to the PC(USA) makes this payment in full. We ask every member to prayerfully consider making an additional contribution – over and above your offering pledges – to cover this expense for our church. The 2019 amount is $40 per person. A special envelope is in the offering box.
