THINGS TO REMEMBER ... 

Sunday, August 20th, the First Presbyterian youth will be leading the worship service.
Come and help us recognize these outstanding young church family members as they share their stories of camping trips and spirit-drive retreats.

 

In August, the Mission Committee will be collecting food items to support the Back Pack Food Program which is designed to help feed hungry school children here in Mattoon.

Because of Mattoon's low economic level, during the school year many students qualify for free and reduced lunches but teachers have reported that these students often do not have food on the weekends.
Through an application process, elementary and middle schools have identified these children and members of the various churches in the community "stuff" food in to backpacks which are delivered to schools on two Fridays every month.

- Pudding Cups (any flavor)
- Pop Tarts (2 pack - iced - any flavor
- Applesauce Cups (any flavor)
- Fruit Cups (individual cups - mandarin oranges - peaches)
- Cheese or peanut butter crackers (in individual packages)
- Pasta with meat (individual pop-top-cans)
- Granola Bars
- Fruit Roll Ups
- Juice Boxes 

 

Also - in August the Mission Committee invites you to join them in collecting pink or blue plasic caps from Prairie Farms milk containers (gallons and half-gallons).  (Leave the white sticker on)  These will be given to Habitat for Humanity who receives cash donations for the caps.   Thanks for your help.

 

 

LOGOS Family Nights will start on Wednesday, September 13th from 5:00-7:00 pm.   LOGOS is an Intergenerational program designed for all ages of the church to develop and foster relationships in Christ together.

Our kids program consists of ages K-5th grade.  They will attend Bible Study, learn Worship Arts and have recreational time.
