Children’s Church Service Project

Do Unto Others is partnering with our Children’s Church for a service learning project to create “busy bags” for the kids served by Westside Cares.

These packets will help kids pass the time while their parents are signing up for services.  From now through Sept. 16, we have a chance to help fill the packets.

The back-to-school sales provide a great opportunity to purchase crayons and small, snack-size Ziploc bags. We also can use packaged snacks, juice boxes and items that can be used to make bags of trail mix or gorp, such as cereals, pretzels, chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, and M & M’s. Our children will be assembling the packets and putting together the trail mix bags each week during Children’s Church.

If you do not have time to shop, you may also donate money in the church office or to Trudy W. or Amy K., PPMCC’s lay representatives to Westside Cares.  As always, thank you for being so generous!

The Divine Image – “Created to Create”

Discover your creative outlets, share ideas, and enjoy an artistic work space in an open, drop-in environment.  Divine Image is a venue for us to celebrate the creative process that is gifted to us by our own creator.

Participants in painting, bead work, macramé, drawing and tile mosaic are enjoying the atmosphere of creating and networking, and there is room for more.

Divine Image is open 9AM-12PM on the fourth Saturday of the month in the PPMCC social hall at no cost.  Participants are responsible for their materials and set-up/clean-up.

Please see Matthew Keist for more information or just drop in!
