Your help is needed
So far this year the Refugee Resettlement program has welcomed 600 new Americans. In the next few months there will be an additional 200 from Somalia, the Congo, Syria and Iraq being welcomed. Look for an article in the upcoming All of Us listing things needed and where to put them. Other Liverpool area churches will be asked to help too.
This is a new initiative for the Dinner/Fund-raising Committee to assist the church programming budget. Limited to less than 100 halves – when they are gone, they are gone. “Sides” available for 50 cents each. You may RESERVE your chicken halves now by signing up at the table in Fellowship Hall and PAY AT PICK-UP. These are THURSDAY afternoon drive-through BBQs in the rear parking lot aimed at commuters. Cars will drive in for window pick-up. Volunteers needed — Please check your planners to see if you can help on Aug. 10–11. Volunteer sheets are in Fellowship Hall. NOTE: these events will only take place if enough volunteers sign up to help.
Step Up Moment — donate snacks, encourage fitness
We are collecting healthy snacks and water for the Step Up Moment program at the Rescue Mission in Syracuse. There is a drop box at the rear entrance to the church. The program is a free exercise program for the Rescue Mission and the local community.
PEACE Inc. Senior luncheons
Our church hosts a PEACE Senior Citizens luncheon every Monday at noon. The menu for the month is found at www.peace-caa.org. Please consider trying the luncheon and encourage your friends to come too. Call 470‑3331 to reserve a meal.
Invitation to pray
Prayer Partners invite you to be a part of the group that meets Mondays at the church, from 3 to 4 p.m. Learning how to call on God in prayer is one way that we develop our relationship with God. We receive requests from many different sources and for many different needs, such as healing, comfort, strength, wisdom, protection, etc. If you are interested please call Pamela Phillips at 451‑1087 or Barb Halstead at 622‑0752.

Support foster children through Project Christina
The need is increasing because there are consistent numbers of children that are removed from their home weekly and bigger sibling groups involved. Social workers use the toys to calm the children during the interview process which is extremely traumatic. You can be assured that your generous heart is making a difference.
Video On Demand- View and Share our Worship
The church makes video recordings of the 9:30 a.m. services. If you would like a copy of the video in DVD format you may request one by filling out one of the request cards in the pews and dropping it in the offering plate. Let us know the date of the service you would like and whether you want the complete service or just the Pastor’s Meditation, and your name and phone number of course, and we’ll have your video ready for pickup in the church office within a week (or so).
If you would like to give flowers to honor a loved one, a birthday or anniversary, or in memory of someone, please fill out the form below and put it in the offering plate, or contact the church at 457‑5180. We have dates available.
