‘Operation Christmas Child’ Underway At Presbyterian Church

Rev. James Shanley, pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Mountain Top, invites you to worship Sunday, November 5. Sunday School begins at 9:30 with the adult class meeting in the Sanctuary and all ages of children meeting in Fellowship Hall for Praise time and class assignments. The Worship Service begins at 11 a. m. Pastor Shanley will deliver the message and the church will share in the Sacrament of Communion.

Pastor Shanley’s next Bible Class will be held on November 8th at 7 p. m. The class will share a Thanksgiving study. All adults are invited.

Many thanks and kudos to all hands who shared in the cooking, serving, and cleanup during the Spaghetti fundraiser. A good time was enjoyed by all the volunteers!

Operation Christmas Child is now underway. Bring in shoeboxes and items to fill them until Nov. 12, or your completed shoeboxes. Donations are also be collected to cover shipping the boxes. NO candy is allowed in the gift boxes because of postal regulations. Dedication of the boxes will be held on Nov. 12th during the Worship Service.

The Harvest Table, sponsored by the Deacons to bring Thanksgiving baskets to our needy families, will be available in the Sanctuary for donations. Baskets will be delivered the week before Thanksgiving. If you know anyone in need of a helping hand, please let any Deacon know, or call the church office.

Please donate your food items weekly to be given to the Mountain Top food bank. Bins are located at the rear of the Sanctuary. The need is great for packaged items.

2017 dates to purchase bulletin covers to honor or recognize someone are now available. A month’s supply of bulletin covers is $35. If there is a certain month you would like to purchase check with the office for availability. Flowers are also available to purchase for $35 for the vases or a special arrangement for the pedestal. Contact Allison Pekar to schedule flowers or call the church office.

Continue to pray for the president and country! Also pray for our military families and those serving in all branches of the armed forces. If you want a name of your friend or family member added to our prayer list, contact the church offices. Service members are prayed for by name every Sunday! Also we lift up the hurricane victims hit with devastating destruction over the last few weeks. Information to donate through the Presbyterian Disaster Relief fund is available in the Narthex.
