Children's Jesus' Birthday Party
Sunday, December 14th
Our children’s classes through 6th grade will celebrate Jesus’ birthday with a party during the last 20 minutes of Sunday School. Please bring a toy for the Toy Drive for J. H. House Elementary.
MOC Toy Drive
MOC ANNUAL TOY DRIVE
Christmas is a time of joy, and we can help make this year a joyous Christmas for many needy children. The toys will be taken to J. H. House Elementary School which we sponsor throughout the year. The school will set-up a “Christmas store” during the last week of school. The school will issue coupons worth “points” to needy families based on the number of children in the family. Each gift will be assigned a point value to be “purchased” with the coupons by the parents.
A collection box is in the hall. Please do not wrap your gifts. Also remember small stocking stuffer items like earphones, playing cards, pocket calculators, crayons, and small stuffed animals. The school requests puzzles, kits the children have to assemble, sporting equipment (balls, gloves, etc.) and educational/learning toys. The age group we are targeting is 3 to 12 years old.
The toys and warm clothing will be delivered on Monday, December 15th.
Warm Clothing Drive
MITTENS, GLOVES, HATS, SOCKS
Warm clothes are very important items to keep children warm during the winter months. Circle 2 is sponsoring a drive to collect these items for the children in need at J. H. House Elementary School (K-6th grade).
Good clean used outerwear (coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, etc.) will also be very useful. A box is in the hall for your donations.
Children's Choir Musical
Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion Service
2015 Flower Calendar
The 2015 Flower Calendar is on the bulletin board in the hall by the church office. Choose your date before the calendar fills up.
November Food Pantry Update
During the month of November, PCR's Food Pantry provided food for 52 families, consisting of 170 individuals. Your support allowed us to provide for the 55 children and 31 senior citizens in these families.
The Food Pantry distributed 3,137 lbs. of food. This was a record number of families for one month.
We are blessed to still have a credit at the Atlanta Community Food Bank (from your donations and support of this year's Hunger Walk) to be able to replenish the Food Pantry.
We are still in need of Grits, Jelly, Corn, and Coffee to have the Pantry ready to meet the needs during this Holiday Season. Please leave your donations in the grocery cart in the hall,
To My Church Family,
Thank you for your visits to the funeral home, to the memorial service, and for all the cards, letters and flowers in celebration and memory of my brother Billy’s life. He was a great man, and a great brother. Thank you again for your heartfelt condolences. Doc Corry
To all my church friends and family,
The past 3 years I have spent the most precious times with Grandma and some of the most difficult. Grandma was my mother and best friend, the strongest woman I've ever known and it was an absolute honor to care for her when she needed me most. The past few months have been the hardest of my life. I know my presence in church has been very minimal in recent years and I plan to work on that because I want my children to grow up in the church, as I did. The outpouring of love and support we have received from our friends and family this year have been truly amazing and we could not thank you more. I have learned that sometimes in life, we are thrown into situations we don't agree with, sometimes don't want to do, and we have to learn to keep moving forward. Grandma and Grandad always told me to "keep on keeping on" and that is what I intend to do. They both loved the church and everyone in it and they were so proud to call PCR their church home. Thank you all for the donations, cards, the reception after the memorial service, baby showers, wedding showers, prayers and love. I am so amazingly blessed to have all of you in my life and couldn't be more appreciative for every one of you. God bless you all.
With love, Michelle Seagraves
