First Presbyterian Church Mission Statement
FIRST PRESS FALL NEWSLETTER 2020
I’ve stared at this page a long time, wondering what to write; wondering where to even start with unpacking these last 7 months. It’s been said many times, but we are living in challenging times!
Crafts and Conversation
The Craft and Conversation group will soon be delivering our yearly donation to the Mission to Seafarers. If you have items you would like to donate, please have them at the church prior to Friday, November 13.
Suggested items you might choose to donate are:
|Socks||Disposable razors (other toiletries are not|
|Playing cards, hand-held games/puzzles||Chap Stick|
|Small tool; flashlight, screwdriver||Small Unbreakable Christmas ornament|
|Wrapped candy or gum||Hot chocolate packets|
Are you a CRAFTY person? Do you enjoy knitting, crocheting, cross-stitching or sewing? Or just enjoy an afternoon of conversation with friends?
The Craft and Conversation group at First Presbyterian has resumed our meetings. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month in the John Currie Room at 1 p.m. We would love to have you join us!
Some of us begin making our crafts of choice after the Christmas holiday season is over. We accumulate our items and in the Fall share with the Seafarers organization (scarves and hats), various charities and schools with items of warm (hats/mitts/socks/sweaters etc.). Even hand knit doll clothes.
On October 9, we are asking everyone who attends to bring along the items they have made so far this year. If you haven’t made anything yet, there is still time! We are going to have them photographed and the photo will be placed on the webpage for everyone to see what we have made so far this year.
Unfortunately, we are not able to have our usual tea and goodies at this time. We also ask that you wear a mask and we will practice social distancing. The room will be sanitized before and after our meeting.
Hope to see familiar and new faces on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month in the John Currie Room at 1 p.m.
