            Portage Presbyterian Women's Association,

            Thank you so much for the personal care bags.
They will go to very good use and be of help to many patients in need.
Your kindness and generosity is very much appreciated.

Presbyterian Women's Association,

            On behalf of our agency and the families and individuals we serve, I would like to thank you for your recent donation of hygiene kits.
The kits will be put to good use by the homeless population we serve.
We will hand out the kits when we conduct our semi-annual Point-In-Time homeless count and to those who come to our office looking for assistance. Your donation will help those who are struggling to maintain their basic needs.
We really appreciate those who put together the hygiene kits and generously donated their time and supplies.

            Our "Wed Nite" program schedule has changed a bit!
            The PEACE class (all age education class) meets @ 5:30 p.m. for class (there is a "snack time" before this).
            Then our "Wed Nite" worship experience has moved to 6:15 p.m. This is a shorter, more "interactive" type of worship service which encourages the young people to actively participate in the service and the message.
            Everyone is invited to come and share in this unique worship on "Wed Nite."
            And be sure to invite young people of any age to share in the PEACE experience too!


Plans are still being developed - but we can announce that on Sunday, October 13 we will be celebrating a "4-H Sunday" as a part of our 10:05 a.m. worship service.
We are working with the New Directions 4-H group (who holds their meetings here at PPC on the 3rd Sunday @ 4:00 p.m.) on the plans.
If you know of a family or young people that might like to learn more about the wonderful 4-H program here in the area, be sure to invite them for this special Sunday.
Stay tuned to the bulletins and PPC "Facebook" pages for more information.

The Adult Bible Class will be meeting on October 13th at 8:45 a.m. in the Bell Tower Room to talk about how God used a prostitute to accomplish God’s purposes.  We will study Joshua 2 for this class.
On October 27th, the class will meet again to study Joshua 3:1-5:12 in which we will discover all that Joshua did as he led the people from Egypt to the Promised Land. 
Come and join us in this interesting study.
The Adult Bible Study group is led by Rev. Dr. Carol Hermann.

It is getting "that time of the year" when one likes to have one's car "clean."
You can have a clean vehicle and help support PPC's "mission trippers" at the same time when you purchase Kwik Trip "Ultimate" Car Wash cards.
Each card has FIVE car washes on it.
If you were to purchase these at the store, they would cost $50.00 ($10.00/wash)
But, the Mission Trippers are selling these cards for the price of $36.00 / card.
For each card sold the "mission trippers" earn $16.00!
If you are interested in purchasing cards, contact the Church Office. Thanks!

You are encouraged to take time before each Communion to reflect on the meaning of the Lord's Supper for you, for PPC and for the world.
The "Directory for Worship" notes that "in preparing to receive Christ in this Sacrament, the believer is to confess sin and brokenness, to seek reconciliation with God and neighbor, and to trust in Jesus Christ for cleansing and renewal."
As Presbyterians, we believe that coming to the Lord's Table is not a right, but a privilege given to those who come in faith, repentance and love - the gifts of God for the people of God.

PPC is blessed to provide a monthly  worship service at Tivoli.  
We have found that our worship service is one of the better attended worship times – and that is great news!
We are looking for additional people to come and help get people to and from the chapel.
You will have the opportunity to share in a special worship experience as well as being able to interact with some very nice people. Chaplain Monica remarks how much the residents enjoy having people come and share worship with them.
If you could help with this ministry once in a while, contact Pastor Dave.
NOTE! We share worship on the  Monday October 21st ... @10:00 a.m.
