Thank you to everyone that contributed to “The Water of Life” Vacation Bible School. Our snack foods were donated by CPC friends along with donations that helped with supply costs. 11 adults and youth worked to lead and/or supervise activities.

The Mission Committee is collecting food items for the 14th and Chestnut Grumbling Tummies (meals served to the children) in June. The food needs are: hamburger patties, ground sausage, large size tortillas, tater tots, granola bars, lunch meat, individual chip bags, juice boxes, apple juice, orange juice, precooked bacon, texas toast loaves of bread, english muffins, uncrustables, sliced cheese, shredded cheese, fruit cups, jello/pudding cups. Please place your items in the grocery cart in Fellowship Hall and perishable items labeled 14CCC in the pantry refrigerator or the freezer.
These foods will provide breakfast and lunch for the children in the summer program. They take a sack lunch each Friday for a field trip. A
CPC group will be preparing breakfast every Thursday during the summer and appreciate your help with the kids’ favorite menu items (breakfast sandwiches, breakfast burritos, french toast).

GRIEF SHARE meets each Wednesday at Central Presbyterian Church at 6:30 pm.  Led by caring, trained people who have experienced grief themselves, this program will offer grief support from a Christian perspective.  It has three components: a video seminar, a support group, and a take-home workbook to reinforce the whole process.  Grief Share fits people who suffered loss quite recently and those who have carried their grief for a longer time.  For more information please call the church office.

The Deacons say “Thank You” for your generosity!   We are happy to be able to give the Youth $350.00 to help cover Triennium expenses and $150.00 to 14th and Chestnut for perishable food items. This is in addition to our regular expenses of utility assistance, bus maintenance, bereavement expenses, and recognition of our shut ins and “super seniors”.  All of this is possible because of YOUR gifts to the Deacons Fund.
Again, Thank You!   The Deacons
[Deacon Fund donations are received each first Sunday of the month.]

All of the church parking permits are gone. If you have driven off with one, we would appreciate getting it back. Thanks!
