    SAVE THE DATE!!! The annual Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser for the food and personal needs pantries is scheduled for Sunday, March 25 from 11:30 – 2:30 at Mike’s Village Restaurant. We hope to see you there! $10.00 for adults, $5 for children under 16.

    New Worship Service Opportunity The Session has affirmed Rev. Crane in researching ideas and possibilities for a new service to reach out to new folk in the community. Using social media and personal networks, the design is to see what needs there may be among individuals and families for such a service. It could be an informal Sunday evening service focusing on ways to address spiritual needs in a practical way. If you are interested in helping with this possibility, please speak with Rev. Crane.

    News from Food Pantry- Thank you for your continued support of our food pantry! We received many lbs. of food over the past two months. We received donations in our grocery cart at the church, in the container at Carl’s Market and from community members. We also received over 850 lbs. of food from Dimondale United Methodist Church from their Souper Bowl Collection Thank you very much!

    ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING Since 1949, Presbyterians have joined with millions of other Christians through One Great Hour of Sharing to share God’s love with our neighbors-in-need around the world. Your generous gifts to this Special Offering will help provide relief to those affected by natural disasters, provide food to the hungry, and assist in helping to empower the poor and oppressed. Your gift to One Great Hour of Sharing will support the following: Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self-Development of People. Offering envelopes will be available during Lent.

    Grocery Cart Items The grocery cart items for March are hygiene products for the personal needs pantry at Dimondale United Methodist Church. This is perfect timing…and gives us the opportunity to support them!! Please consider donating items such as toothpaste, tooth brushes, shampoo, deodorant, hand soap, toilet paper, feminine products or razors. They also distribute cleaning supplies such as laundry soap, dish soap, paper towels, tissues, toilet cleaner and bleach. Thank you!

    THANK YOU FOR PLASTIC BAGS We are once again in need of plastic grocery bags. Please put them in the grocery cart and we will take care of them. Thank you!

    The The Fishbowl Collection: The “Cents-ability” (previously known as “Two-Cents-A-Meal”) collection is taken every Communion Sunday. Congregations invite every member to contribute a few cents at every meal as an expression of thanksgiving for what we have received and as a commitment to share with others. Donations go to the Presbyterian Hunger Program which has provided the means for Presbyterians to respond to the crisis of hunger in the US and around the world. Thank you for your contributions!

    Knittin’ for Jesus - Yarn is available in the old social room for squares, hats, mittens, scarves, etc. for Knittin’for Jesus. We will find a home for everything that is donated. Please see Beth Everson if you have questions.

    Box TopsWe are collecting Box Tops for Education and Campbell Soup Labels for Dimondale Elementary. A collection bucket is available in the Great Room.

    Dimondale Community Pantries

    We continue to run our food pantry as an ecumenical venture. Dimondale United Methodist Church helps us with logistics for collecting and distibuting personal needs. West Windsor United Brethren furnish us with fresh produce from their community garden during the growing season.

    Please call 517-646-6183 or 517-646-0641 and leave your name and phone number and volunteer will return your call within 48 hours to discuss your needs, pick up times, and location. Pick up your food at First Presbyterian Church and personal needs at Dimondale United Methodist Church on either the 2nd or 4th Friday of each month from 10am - Noon. We can dispense a week's worth of items once a month per household.

    Giving Tree

    Session has created a “Giving Tree” on the bulletin board in the Great Room. Each item on the Giving Tree is approved by session for various needs around the church. You can  help us  keep the church clean by donating to a new vacuum cleaner for the church. Other needs will appear as session adds them to the tree. Thank you for checking it over each Sunday! Mark your name and an amount by items you wish to contribute toward & put your donation in the offering plate (mark it for the item) or bring them to the church office.

    Go Green

    We are the stewards of God’s creation.  One small way we can improve our environment is to reduce waste, one cup at a time!  We have volunteers who are willing to wash coffee-hour cups, glasses and plates.  So, if you have graciously volunteered for coffee-hour and find ceramic cups, plastic glasses and plates sitting out, sit back and enjoy, they will be washed for you!

    Also, we are now recycling paper, magazines, and plastic/styrofoam.  Bins are located in the Mail Room area and the kitchen. During coffee hour, place your empty cups in the blue bin.

    Holy Communion

    The Lord Jesus Christ requests the honor of your presence at the serving of Holy Communion, generally the first Sunday of the month during worship.

    We receive 2 cents a meal contributions on Communion Sundays dedicated to the hunger relief project.  Each time your family shares a meal, remember those in the world, including our own community, who do not have enough food by putting 2 cents per person per meal in a can or bank.  Bring your offering to church on Communion Sunday to be collected in the fish bowl.  The money is then forwarded to join other gifts at the Presbyterian level, dispersed through a variety of hunger relief programs.

    Mission Work

    Elders, Deacons and members of our church regularly reach out to those in our community and around the world to offer assistance to those in need.  Our church runs a “Pantry” and regularly accepts and distributes food from our “Pantry”.  In addition, a Caring Fund has also been established to help those within our congregation and in the community with emergencies or special needs.  For additional information, visit the Mission Work page.
