HEMEFund Project Update: William and Min Seo and family are back in Terre Haute! William is anxious to catch us up on the vocational school projects in Afghanistan.

There will be a called meeting of the congregation on Sunday, October 23 in the sanctuary after worship. The purpose of the meeting is to approve a bridge loan to finance building repairs.
Information was recently sent to all members regarding our church renovations and the need for a capital campaign to raise monies for said repairs.

Our Kids Hope ministry is in need of mentors, substitute mentors and prayer partners for the new school year. If you would like to make a difference in the life of a child at Deming Elementary School, please contact Suzanne Downs at suzanne@thcpc.org for more information.  In addition, volunteers are needed to help with the Backpack Program that provides food for children in their school over the weekend and during holidays. Deming Elementary services the most children in the district in this program with 170 children getting food weekly.  We need volunteers on Wednesday or Thursday that would be willing to come stuff backpacks for about an hour. The time will be determined by the group of volunteers.
The 2016 BOOKS, BAKERY AND BARGAINS BAZAAR is November 4th and 5th. You may bring books and gently used items to the church. Place them in the storage room as you enter the south side door. Nancy Rubey and Abby Simmons will be glad to give you more information about the Bazaar.

Bazaar Ladies Need Your HELP!   “Many hands make light work.”
Believe it or not, FALL is here!  Bright, cheery colors of mums,  gourds and scarecrows have appeared throughout our neighborhoods, and frost will soon coat our pumpkins.   For many years Central Presbyterian Church has celebrated the season with our annual Fall Bazaar, and we will do it again in just four weeks!  Our delicious pre-bazaar dinner and evening of entertainment will be on Friday, November 4th, and our doors will open to the public for sales on Saturday, November 5th from 8 am-2 pm. It will be an exciting weekend, but it won’t happen by itself.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!   Some donations of BOOKS and gently used household items have already appeared in our fellowship hall storage room, but we need more good quality BARGAINS.  This year we will have a special area set aside for new or seldom played with toys and games that your children no longer want.  Our BAKERY section is always a favorite place for goodies.  How about making your favorite recipe of something tasty and bringing it to sell?

You’re probably wondering how you can help.  It’s easy!  Just volunteer!  Look for Donna Garrison or Barbara Schmidt downstairs after worship.  They have a list of jobs and tasks that you can select from.
