Donations for the La Grange Area Food Pantry may be placed in the designated box in the east cloister anytime. July’s non-food “item of the month” is laundry detergent.

2017 “PER CAPITA” AMOUNT IS $33.38

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 $33.38 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 lhuck@fpclg.org with questions.
