DSC09434-optThank you to everyone who helped with our very successful Vacation Bible School this year. A total of 19 kids, along with 7 youth helpers, attended. We focused on discovering their strength in God by learning about local heroes here in our community. It was a great time!

Casserole #5 Pizza Casserole-optI am looking for entries for the Casserole Cook-Off Luncheon being held on September 17th following worship, as Mary Barlament will be handing down the Silver Spatula Award. If you have an award-winning noodle/rice/potato-based casserole, you could be the next Casserole King or Queen of First Presbyterian Church. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Sunday School will be starting on Sunday, October 8th during worship. We will be utilizing the same format as last year of not holding Sunday School on Communion Sundays to allow the children to participate in the sacrament of Communion. Teachers continue to be needed and a brief orientation meeting will be scheduled in September.
