This will be an informal time with light refreshments. We would love to have you join us. Please indicate your interest by letting Pastor Steve, Jay or one of the Church Elders know. Or by e-mailing the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS
The Mission Committee and Presbyterian Women have scheduled their annual rummage sale and school clothes give-away, for Saturday, July 21.
PW School Clothes Give-away… Now is the time to think about cleaning out those closets and setting aside good, usable clothing for pre-school, elementary and high school age students, for the PW school clothes give-away. Please be aware of the clothing for the High School students. If you are donating clothing for the High School age group, please be sure that the clothes are age appropriate and would be worn by a high school student. New packaged underwear and socks for the Elementary aged children are also being accepted. Donations are to be to the church by July 9. Donations after the 9th with not be accepted.
Mission Rummage Sale..As you are doing your spring cleaning, please put items that you no longer need aside for our annual Mission Rummage Sale. Items can be brought to the church any time after June 3, and left in the Sunday School room. If you are unable to get your donations to church, please contact Jim Dameron (360-590-1285) and arrangements will be made to pick up your items.
Monte Pres has launched a new ministry called S.A.F.E (Setting Addicts Free Eternally). The program will meet every Thursday evening, at 7:30p, here at the church. The hope is that anyone struggling with drug or alcohol addiction will take advantage of this Christ-centered, 12 step support group. The group will enjoy fellowship, a Bible study related to one of the 12 steps, share time and prayer time.
****Men’s Breakfast…This Men’s Ministry has been started to help primarily single women of our church and/or our community, who have projects that need to be done. The men have pledged to spend three hours of service following the breakfast, dividing into teams depending on the number of projects on hand. All men of the church, as well as their sons, are invited to join this new ministry. The next scheduled meeting will be Saturday, June 2, 8:00a, here at the church. Please contact Jay if you would like additional information
