Announcements - June 23, 2019


  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 the Chris Mayer Family in celebration of all the  graduates.

  3.   WE THANK greeters & ushers Mary Ann Case and Matt & Doreen Clark, and the musicians for their participation in this morning’s worship service.

  4.   ADULT ED. CLASS following the 9:30 service:

        Today  -  No class.

        Next Sunday  -  First in a six-week series on the book of Acts led by Pastor Larry in Room 9/10.

  5.   SUMMER SUNDAY CHILDCARE  - 

         Children in PreK and older will be remaining for the whole worship service.  Worship Activity Bags containing Bible work sheets, coloring pages, crayons and storybooks are on hand at the upper Narthex entrance. 

         Child care for infants to 3-year olds is being provided.  Volunteers are needed each Sunday to care for these children.  Please see Gayl Galen if you can help for a week or two during the summer. Nursery volunteers are needed for July 28 and all the Sundays in August.

  6.   SUMMER MISSION  -  We are continuing to collect voluntary donations for the food distribution van at Eastern Service Workers Association.  This van is very old and requires lots of maintenance, but is crucial to ESWA as it delivers emergency food to about 60 low income working families each week.  Please use the small brown envelope in the chair rack to make your donation to this very worthy project.  Our minimum goal is to collect $5,000 with a stretch goal of $10,000 or more.

  7.   DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS our Chancel Choir takes a well-deserved break.  This opens the opportunity for others to share their talents during the worship services.  If you are interested in participating as a singer or instrumentalist, as a soloist or as part of a group, please see organist Pat Korenkiewicz or email her at patkoren@yahoo.com.

  8.   VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL registration forms are available in the upper Narthex and on the church website for children in PreK (those who are 4 years old by January 1, 2019) through 5th grade.  Bible lessons, games, music and crafts with the theme “ROAR” will help children discover how Life is Wild...God is Good!  The deadline for registration is July 10th.  Adult volunteers are needed for Kindergarten, 4th grade, Nursery and Snacks. Teen volunteers are needed for Nursery, Kindergarten & 1st Grade.  Please see Gayl Galen in the CCE office to be part of the adventure!

  9.   MIRACLE FIELD (CHALLENGER BASEBALL) – All are welcome to join us at the field for a game this Saturday at 10:00 a.m. 

10.  VOLUNTEER WITH WEBSTER’S HOPE MINISTRY for a Foodlink Mobile Pantry food distribution at Holy Trinity Church, Ridge Road, on this Friday.  Volunteers are asked to arrive at 3:00 with distribution taking place from   4 – 6 p.m.  Contact Laureen (palmers4@rochester.rr.com) if you are interested in participating.

11.   A MISSION VEGETABLE GARDEN is being co-sponsored by the Men’s Fellowship and the Heritage Christian Services Day Program which meets at the church.  Assistance is needed with the garden’s upkeep and maintenance.  If you are interested in helping, please contact Chris Downs (955-3271).

12.   CHURCH SUMMER OFFICE HOURS have begun and will continue through Labor Day.  The office will be open most weekdays from 9 a.m. to Noon.  The pastors or secretaries will be available at other times, but on a flexible schedule.  Please call ahead to ensure someone is available to help you.

13.   FLOWERS – Do you have someone special to honor or a date to remember?  July 7 and 28 are open to fund flowers for display during the worship services.  Sign up on the Flower Chart in the upper Narthex if you could help us fill this need.
