Announcements - October 21, 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 Thelma Leonhard in memory of loved ones and to the Glory of God.

3.   WE THANK ushers and greeters Clark & Janet Chippero, Brad & Kathy Adams and Randy & Dawn Nelson, and all the musicians and other participants for their help with this morning worship service.

4.   ADULT ED. CLASS at 10:45 a.m. - 

        Today  -  Join us as we complete the last of 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. Join us in the sanctuary!

        Next Sunday  -  Meet in the Sanctuary for the 2019 Budget Presentation by Peter Pape and the WPC Stewardship & Finance Committee.

  5.   NOVEMBER ADULT ED: The Spiritual Nurture Committee is sponsoring 3 dynamic Adult Ed Sessions in November!  The first (11/4) will be on our Spiritual Journeys.  The second (11/11) discusses Adventures in Prayer.  The third (11/18) will cover Christian Unity.  Plan to join us!

6.   TRUNK OR TREAT for children will be held here next Sunday 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 October Pathway or by speaking to Rachel McKay (356-8302).

  7.   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 through next Sunday so the packages can go out in early November.  Please keep our college students in your prayers!

8.   OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILDIt’s time to begin filling a shoebox with simple gifts for the Samaritan’s Purse ministry to over 11 million children in 109 countries around the world.  Items to go in the box can include school supplies, mittens, socks, coloring book & crayons, a small ball, toy, doll or teddy bear (candy and toothpaste can NO LONGER be included).  Dedication Sunday for our shoebox gifts will be November 11 at both the 8:00 and 9:30 services.  If you are unable to fill a box, but would like to contribute a few small gifts, a collection box is at the OCC table in the upper Narthex hallway.

9.   CLOTHING FOR CAMERON COMMUNITY MINISTRIES  -  We are again collecting new or gently used winter clothing (men’s, women’s or children’s).  Please begin checking your closets and drawers for items to donate!  If you don’t have anything to donate at home, perhaps you could consider going to a local store to purchase an item or items to donate.  Collection boxes will be in the Narthex through November 12th.

10.  HABITAT ANNUAL THANKSGIVING PIE SALE helps support our Penfield Area Habitat Coalition’s home building projects.  Three kinds of 10-inch deep dish pies – Apple-Crumb, Apple-Raspberry, and Pumpkin – from Kelly Farm can be ordered for $17.00 and will be delivered on Tuesday morning, November 20th to WPC.  Sign up today or the next two Sundays during the “social hours” (9:00 - 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 – 10:45 a.m.), or call Irv & Shirley Crane at 233-3644.  You can also donate a pie to the Open Door Mission in Rochester for the Mission’s Thanksgiving dinner.

11.   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 – Hurricane Relief” on the memo line, and placed in the offering plate any time in the next few weeks.

12.   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.

13.   A PRAYER LUNCHEON is being hosted by the Church of God by Faith here in our Social Room on November 3rd from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Anyone who would like to join them is invited to contact Pamela Booth at 355-4213 or booth5us@yahoo.com.  A count is needed by next Sunday.
