What can we give Jesus for Christmas? How about giving of your time to help those in need? How about getting on the bus and singing and laughing and sharing the season with others from PCM?

At the October 27th Called Congregational Meeting, the congregation voted to make a change to PCM’s Bylaws. This change brings PCM’s Bylaws in line with the PC(USA) Book of Order, which provides for the Session to appoint its own Clerk for a term suitable to the Session.
As this is written, we are one week into the 2014 Giving Campaign. Thank you to all who have turned in pledge cards and Time & Talent sheets. If you have not turned in a card or sheet, it is not too late! All of PCM’s programs, salaries, etc. are funded from pledges. This year’s theme asked us to share and be generous with all the different gifts we’ve been given. No gift is “too small.” Together we can grow and build on what we do and what makes PCM uniquely PCM. Pledges may be paid in the way that best suits your lifestyle: check or cash in offering trays on Sunday, auto pay (get an authorization form from the office), by using your bank’s bill pay service, or just mail your check to church.
Fill the Mitten tree! The mittens will be delivered to Stephen Center and the ESL Families on December 15.
Each year on the Sunday before Christmas, Presbyterian congregations have the opportunity to express our appreciation to our clergy by receiving the Christmas Joy Offering. We honor our church leaders both for theri faithfulness in tending to our spiritual needs and in recognition of their decision to answer the call to ministry. The Christmas Joy Offering provides a way to give thanks and much-needed support to active and retired church workers and their families who are struggling with urgent financial needs. Please consider a donation during this season of giving.
