***This years The Community Bible Camp (CBC), “Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus”, has been set for the week of July 23-27th, from 9:00a-12:00n. As in the past, the morning begins at the Church of God, and moves throughout the morning to the surrounding churches. This Bible Camp is for all Montesano Youth entering grades Kindergarten thru 6th. Registration can be done on-line at www.montevbs.com. On-line registration is preferred, however, should you like a paper registration, those can be found on the back table in the fellowship hall. There are also volunteer opportunities for those who wish to help. Volunteer registration can also be done on-line at the above address. This is a wonderful opportunity to teach God’s word to our young disciples.
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 Update… After unpacking and sorting the clothes donated by the cut off date, the PW Mission Co-chairmen have decided that there are not enough clothes to hold the giveaway. Underwear and socks donated will be given to the local elementary schools (we supply these each fall anyway) and money donated will be used to purchase additional underwear and socks, which will be donated to the Union Gospel Mission, who has stated they are in desperate need for these items. The clothes will be sorted and any clothes that are needed by the Gospel Mission will go there and the remaining clothes will go to the Clothes Bank that operates in Elma.
We would like to thank all those that donated and volunteered to help with this mission project. We have had three very successful years and now feel we need to respond where the need is most evident.
Tuesday morning at 10:00a has been set for the time to go thru and sort the clothing. If you would like to help sort the clothing, we would love to have you help.
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.
Please make note, that the Men’s Breakfast Ministry will not be meeting during the summer months. Please check back in September ****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. Please watch this site for the next meeting of the Men’s Breakfast Ministry.
