. . . . are a family rooted in Christ, called to glorify and enjoy God through worship, discipleship, compassion, and service to one another and to our community.
. . . strive to be a safe place, a sanctuary where people are accepted, included, and cared for as they are. We have been called to be agents of God’s transforming power, aligning ourselves with the Holy Spirit as we pray, worship, learn, gather for fellowship and serve together.
The annual Thanksgiving Dinner will be held on Sunday, November 18th after the church service in the Fellowship Hall. This year the Deacons will furnish the turkey, stuffing & gravy. The Elders will furnish the ham, mashed potatoes and clean-up. We will be decorating and putting out the good china on Saturday, the day before the dinner. Please feel free to invite a friend or neighbor to attend with you. Even if you do not wish to bring a side dish or dessert (it is not required). Thank you in advance for your participation. See you there!!!
Please call the church office and let us know if you are coming but have not signed up yet.
Each Sunday, congregants will find a special table in Fellowship Hall (look for the balloons) where you will find note cards provided by our deacons, for the purpose of sending words of compassion and encouragement to our members and friends whose personal concerns have been raised during our Sunday morning worship service or through the prayer chain. The deacons will even put a stamp on the envelop and mail the note for you! Check it out, and THANK YOU DEACONS for creating new opportunities to stay in touch with our church family.
Grand Canyon Presbytery Pastor Brad Munroe has written an advent devotional that helps us explore the Biblical text around the birth of Jesus and offers ways to take the message into the world. Permission is given for anyone to copy, duplicate, and transmit this devotional book, either electronically or as hard copy. The author asks that any funds collected from such distribution, if applicable, go to support local mission efforts in one’s community.
We will again be distributing food boxes at Thanksgiving and Christmas to our local military veteran neighbors in need. Please donate macaroni and cheese, instant potatoes, stuffing mix, Jello-O, instant pudding, and spaghetti and sauce by the middle of November. Donations can be dropped off in the church office or brought to worship on Sundays. Please see the newsletter for more information.
BEAR TREE MISSION - November 11 - December 9
The Christmas Bear Tree Mission benefits the children that are in foster care in the White Mountains. We work in conjunction with Child Protective Services to provide gift bags for those in need. There will be bears posted on the east wall in the sanctuary beginning November 11th. Each bear will have a number at the top, the child's gender. age, clothing size and a gift item wish. Most of the children are wearing hand-me-downs so clothing is always appreciated. You do not need to provide everything on their "wish list." But, you can add additional items if you wish to. Please do not wrap the gifts as they need to be checked by the CPS staff. For more information call Arlene Kerr 602-361-0910 (c) 928-367-1617 (h).

Presbyterian Women's Group meets from May through September each year on Tuesday mornings in the church fellowship hall from 10-11:30 am. We dedicate some of the meeting times to a Bible Study, to crafting, and the second Tuesday of each month we have our business meeting followed by a potluck. We have three fund raisers each summer which allow us to raise funds for a number of missions that we support, most of which are here in the White Mountains. We are a group of ladies who are dedicated to caring for others and offer support for one another. We also have a "PW and Friends' Day Out" on the fourth Thursday of the month, where we visit interesting historical museums or such. We would love and encourage anyone to join us during those summer months. For more information contact Georgia Merrick, PW Moderator at (928) 358-1020.
