Announcements - October 14, 2018

  1.   WELCOME to Webster Presbyterian Church!  We are pleased that you are worshipping with us today.  Visitors are invited to stop by the Welcome Center in the Narthex after the service to learn more about our fellowship.

  2.   THE FLOWERS are given by Barbara Hall in loving memory of her husband, Jucius.

  3.   WE THANK ushers and greeters Karen Stoddard and Chris & Lindsey Hall, and all the musicians and other participants for their help with this morning’s worship service.

  4.   ADULT ED. CLASS at 10:45 a.m. - 

        Join us today as we continue with the third in a four-week study led by Rev. Eileen of the book Waking Up White, which deals with racism and how to better understand it – an important topic for us as people of God living the love of Christ in the world. 

  5.   ADULT MISSION WORK TRIP:  Today our work team of 10 has left for New Jersey to help complete the work on the rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy.  Your prayers for the team during their trip would be greatly appreciated.  Anyone who wants to contribute to the team’s expenses can mark the donation for “Adult Mission Team Expenses” and place it in the offering plate or drop it off at the office.

  6.   WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY continues Jeremiah with chapter 5 of the booklet, “Depths of Depression,” this Tuesday.   How do you cope with despair and depression?  Discover how our “weeping prophet” weathered “the storm”.

  7.   OUR NEXT PHILLIPS VILLAGE DINNER is being held this Friday,        5:00 - 6:30 p.m. in the Phillips Village Dining Room.  Call Steve Gaudioso (872-6635) to volunteer.  We have tasks that require varying amounts of time, from 1 to 3 hours.  You will enjoy working with our team and getting to know some of the residents of Phillips Village.

8. THE NOVEMBER PATHWAY DEADLINE is this Friday.  Please submit articles to both kboard@websterpres.org  and ghubbard@websterpres.org or bring them to the church office.

 9.   WORK DAY is scheduled for this Saturday, (rain date October 27th).  Please join us as many hands make light work.  There will be jobs big and small, indoors and out, suitable for everyone.

10.  TRUNK OR TREAT for children will be held here on Sunday, October 28th at 4:00 p.m..  You are invited to participate by decorating the trunk of your car and parking it in the church parking lot.  Children from our church and the community can then go safely from trunk to trunk, collecting candy as they go.  The goal is to have 15 to 20 cars.  Additional information can be found in the September Pathway or by speaking to Rachel McKay (356-8302).

11.   WARMEST WISHES BAGS are again being distributed to Meals on Wheels  program participants with special needs.  We are collecting items for these bags such as samples of soap, shampoo, hand lotion, toothbrushes, combs, small books, small games, seasonal cards, mending kits, new socks, mittens, etc.  Please bring your items by next Sunday so staff has time to assemble and distribute the bags during the holidays.  Collection boxes can be found in the Narthex and the church office.

12.   CLOTHING FOR CAMERON COMMUNITY MINISTRIES  -  We are again collecting gently used or new winter clothing (men’s, women’s or children’s).  Please begin checking your closets and drawers for items to donate!

13.   OUR COLLEGE STUDENTS NEED US  -  It is that time of year again!  As their semester comes to a close and they prepare for finals, WPC likes to provide students with a study care package. Donations of small prepackaged treats and study aids like post-its, highlighters, pens, and pencils would be greatly appreciated!  All donations can be dropped off in the church office until October 28th so the packages can go out in early November.  Please keep our college students in your prayers!

14.   THE PRESBYTERIAN DISASTER ASSISTANCE AGENCY is already an active presence in the areas affected by Hurricane Florence, and additional efforts are being made in Indonesia and now Florida.  If you would like to support their efforts, checks can be made out to WPC with “PDA – Florence” on the memo line, and placed in the offering plate any time in the next few weeks.

15.   THE FLOWER CHART HAS SEVERAL WEEKS OPEN in the next few months.  If you would like to donate flowers in memory or honor of someone special for display on a Sunday morning, check the chart in the upper Narthex for an open date and fill in your name.  Someone will contact you with details.

16.   A CPR CLASS is being held this Wednesday from 7 – 9 p.m. at Webster Presbyterian Pre-School.  Church members are welcome to attend.  The instructor will be covering adult, child, and infant CPR methods.  Certification is good for 2 years.  Cost for the class is $50 per person (payable to the instructor that evening).  Please contact Amy Crumley at (585) 533-7113 or amycrumley@rochester.rr.com if you have any questions or to let her know that you would like to attend.
