Christmas Decorating & Potluck
Friday, December 16th at 6:30 p.m. will be a festive evening at the church as we gather to eat together and then hang the greens in the sanctuary. Children will decorate goody bags for the Whosoever Gospel Mission. Volunteers are needed to supervise the children while making the goody bags. Many hands make light work, so please come if you are able. Contact Dave Rupp, firstname.lastname@example.org or (215) 435-5562 to let him know what you
can bring to the potluck.
Goody Bag Treats Needed
Every year we fill 50 goody-bags for the men of the Whosoever Gospel Mission who often do not have families nearby. We fill them with candy and baked goods, but the homemade treats are what make them special. Please bring in wrapped cookies, brownies or other Christmas treats on Sunday, December 18th.

Help Stop Hunger - Saturday, January 21, 9:00 a.m.
First Presbyterian Church of Germantown, 35 Chelten Ave.
FPGC has invited us to join them in a meal packing event for the Stop Hunger Now organization. Stop Hunger Now distributes food and other life-saving aid to vulnerable children and families around the world, and works to help end world hunger. On that day we will package at least 10,000 meals but our goal is much higher. Each meal costs $0.29 and consists of rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a packet of 23 essential vitamins and minerals. Donations are also welcome! This hands-on activity is a good way for older children and teens to see the church at work. More information to follow.
Confirmation Class begins for Middle Schoolers
Confirmation class begins for 6-8th graders on the first Sunday of Advent, November 27th. Ben Brandt and Jared Whalen are lead teachers (with others helping). The class will meet during the Sunday School hour, and this winter will focus on the book of Luke as a way to explore questions of faith while gaining a deeper understanding of the life, death and resurrection of Christ. Thank you to Ben and Jared for taking on this commitment. We are excited! Cheryl Pyrch and MK Dean will be working with High School students beginning in January.
