Our church family has a busy October planned. Our new minister has arrived and we welcome him to Lima and MSPC. As you look at the calendar for the month you will see that we welcome him to a busy season! Our usual activities continue with collections of used prescription bottles, eye glasses, and items for Crossroads Crisis Center. It is also time to resume your donations of Chief’s receipts.
On Oct. 6th which is “World Communion Sunday,” we will be receiving the Peacemaking Offering. This is one of the three denominational offerings in which we actively participate each year. Our ¼ of the offering will be sent to Crossroad Crisis Center.
We also will be gratefully receiving monetary donations for the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance funds which are strained by continuing storms, fires and other disasters. Your checks can be sent to MSPC marked for PDA or Dorian relief as you wish. We will transmit these funds to PDA in a timely manner as help is desperately needed NOW.
Oct. 20th brings us to our Harvest Sunday celebration. Your donations of commercial sized
canned goods for Our Daily Bread soup kitchen and family sized canned fruits, vegetables and meats will be
gratefully received. Your mission committee will deliver these goods to the soup kitchen and to the Veteran’s Food Pantry.
Our Neighborhood Suppers continue to be successful. Our Sept. 24 supper included a fresh produce distribution sponsored by the West Ohio Food Bank. Thanks to Dottie Kaiser’s efforts we received a grant from WOCAP of $500.00 toward the costs of this effort.
You are a faithful, giving, wonderful group of Christians. We thank you for your help in so many projects.
Your Mission Committee,
Diane Gallaher, Sharon Saville & Karen Jarvis
