Announcements - August 12, 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.   FLOWERS are given by Scott Oelkers in loving memory of Stephanie Oelkers.

  3.   WE THANK greeters and ushers Stu & Carol Cooper and Chuck & Mary Crockett, and all the other participants for their help with this morning’s worship service.

 4.   SUMMER MISSIONS OFFERING: Our project this summer is to help Williamson Come-Unity Center pay off the balance on their mortgage, so they can serve more deserving people in Wayne County and be in a sounder financial position. So far we have received $5933.80 toward our $9000 goal which, if we reach it, will enable the Center to pay off the entire mortgage!   Please prayerfully consider making a generous contribution – the small envelopes are in the chair racks.

  5.   CHILDREN’S CHRISTIAN EDUCATION ADULT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Our nursery and church school classes need just a small amount of your time!  Teachers are needed for all classes (preschool to 5th grade) for the upcoming school year.  All of our church school teachers work out a teaching schedule with a co-teacher to alternate teaching Sundays.  Curriculum, support and resources are provided.  Without volunteers, our program will not be possible.  Please contact Gayl Galen (872-5154) as soon as possible to let her know you are willing to help with this need.

  6.   SCHOOL SUPPLIES REMINDER!  Today is the collection deadline for school supplies (pencils, crayons, scissors, glue sticks, rulers, markers, and much-needed backpacks) for the Williamson Come-Unity Center and for the Eastern Service Workers.  Collection boxes are located in the upper and lower Narthex.

  7.   A MEETING OF THE CONGREGATION has been called by Session for next Sunday, August 19th, at 9:15 a.m. in the Social Room for the purpose of electing at-large members to the All-church Nominating Committee and youth officers for the next year.

  8.   HOPE HOUSE  -  If you are interested in serving hot dogs and drinks at Hope Ministry’s “Back to School Night” on August 21st from 5:00 to 7:30, please contact Laureen (palmers4@rochester.rr.com or 265-2184).

  9.   SEPTEMBER PATHWAY – Summer is coming to a close, meaning the September Pathway will be mailed out soon.  Please submit articles to BOTH ghubbard@websterpres.org and kboard@websterpres.org by next Sunday, August 19th.

 10.   MEALS ON WHEELS will be organizing their Warmest Wishes Bags for holiday delivery again this year.  Keep them in mind as you travel and see sample soaps, shampoos, etc.  A collection box will be located in the Narthex in early October.  For questions relating to this program, call Carol Saylor (872-5024 or carolbud59@gmail.com).
