“You Are Loved” Comfort Care Totes
Many thanks to our most generous congregation for your cash and item donations for the Comfort Care Totes project. With your gifts we will be able to fill our original goal of 10 “You Are Loved” totes for people going through cancer treatment! Also, a special shout-out to our Sewing Circle for making the totes.
If you are aware or become aware of anyone of any age to whom you would like to give one of these totes, please let your deacon know or contact the Church Office.
FOOD PANTRY’S “SPECIAL OF THE MONTH”

2018 “PER CAPITA” AMOUNT IS $33.61
Each year, PC(USA) churches pay to support the work of their Presbytery, Regional Synod and National General Assembly based on each church’s total membership. You help us to cover this cost by paying the $33.61 per capita amount for each member of our church in your household. Per capita contributions may be placed in the offering, made through our website or sent in to the Church Office. Contact Lynn Huck at 708.354.0771 or email@example.com with questions.
