Scout Sunday! Support Troop 514

Hi, Friends-A reminder that this Sunday is Scout Sunday!  Come to the PFC between 8 and 10AM for their pancake fundraiser.  The Scouts then lead the worship at the church at 10AM.  This year, Scout Master Steve Koza is preaching.  Also, some of the boys will share their musical talents during the service. After worship, pancakes will still be served until noon.  Come support the Scouts and you can get breakfast and lunch if your really like pancakes and sausage! 

Summer Youth Mission

Hi, Friends-I have some exciting news to share.  Our high school youth have been invited to join Westminster Presbyterian Church in Salem on a youth mission trip to Romania this August.  They will be working at a camp that hosts children, including orphans, that was started by members of Westminster.  Their church has sent members there before so they will have some good shepherding along the way.  If you would like to see more information about the camp, check out http://www.steppingforwardministries.com/

This means fund raising will be starting up soon!  On February 9th, the youth will be selling coffee before and after worship.  Also, they are collecting cans and bottles so if you have some you would like to donate, feel free to bring them to the church and I'll coordinate with the youth to get them taken care of.  Or sponsor a youth!  We can chat if you want to do something like that.  

And as always, pray for the youth!  This will be a life changing experience.

Community Dinner at PFC

Hi, Friends-You may have seen the announcement, but Side A Brewing and other businesses are offering a community dinner at the PFC!   Dinner will be chili. This is open to everyone in the community and they especially want to reach out to those who might not have access to a hot meal.

We as a church have been invited to help with setup and clean up and provide people to mingle with those eating.  I (Pastor Keith) plan to be there and I believe Don Hair and Jo Carmichael have already volunteered to help with dishes.  Want to help, too?  Contact Brittany at brittanyd.sideabeer@gmail.com.  

Here is their original announcement:

Side A Brewing, Kneads Bakery, Jax Dog Cafe and Books and the Presbyterian Friendship Center have partnered to provide a FREE holiday community dinner. The dinner will be held Saturday, December 21st from 4pm-8pm at the La Grande Presbyterian Church Friendship Center. Donations will be accepted but not required and donated to local programs including the Backpack program, the Angel Fund and the Union County Warming Station.
