Presbyterian Women will collect the Thank Offering at the Thanksgiving luncheon. This offering gives us a tangible way to express gratitude for the many blessings we receive. The generosity of Presbyterian congregations as demonstrated through their Thank Offering gifts helps chosen recipients find real solutions for projects related to health, education, economic development, and needs of women and children. Please give prayerful thought to your gift to this offering!
The annual Congregational Thanksgiving Luncheon is Sunday, November 18 in the CLC following the 11:00 a.m. service. We will celebrate the Installation of Olin McBride and hear the final report from the Stewardship Committee. The church will provide turkey, ham, dressing, mashed potatoes, rolls and beverages. Everyone is asked to bring large casseroles, salads, vegetables and desserts. Please go through the Wednesday night food line to drop your dishes off that morning! If you are interested in decorating a Thanksgiving themed table, please contact Toni Martin at 401-1001 or by email email@example.com. Thank you!
North Mississippi State Hospital patients were very appreciative of the BINGO prizes provided by Presbyterian Women. Thank you for making them feel cared about! They got the message that they are cherished children of God!
