Information Regarding the Kitchen and Tablecloths

This is a reminder to everyone, we have a “No Loan Policy”, that nothing is to be taken from the kitchen. Recently there was a request to borrow some dishes and the people were not aware that nothing is to be removed from the kitchen.   So many things have disappeared  such as a fairly new roaster, 8  white tablecloths, various pans, utensils, sugar & creamers, etc. That is why this policy was put in place some time ago.

Session Notes from December 2013

The Session scheduled a Longest Night worship service, for Saturday, December 21, 2013.The Session decided to make it a matter of policy that the building will be secured with a tiered key/lock scheme, so that when it is necessary to provide anyone with a key to the building, that key does not automatically grant access to every area of the building.The Worship, Sacrament and Music committee requested extra funding in order to cover the costs of unbudgeted expenses, such as repairing the organ speakers, and providing for costs of Dr. William McConnell, who led the Hymnal Festival in October.The Mission Committee, in coordination with the Deacons, asked for permission to raise funds and fruit to supply English as a Second Language (ESL) families with gas cards and fresh fruit as part of a December mission effort.  The Session supported this mission effort.Based on the results of the annual Stewardship Campaign, the Session was able to adopt a budget for 2014.The Session continues its comprehensive review of the standing policies of the Session (accumulated over the lifetime of PCM as a congregation), and recently adopted updated policies in the categories of General policies, Administration and Personnel, and Mission.  The work continues, anticipating the completion of the review, and adoption of a completed policy manual in 2014.The Lord’s Supper will be served on December 27, 2013, as part of the Youth Lock In, and the schedule for the service of the Lord’s Supper has been scheduled through January 11, 2015.The Annual Congregational Meeting has been scheduled for January 19, 2014, following the second worship service.Cindy Gilmore was appointed to the Administration and Personnel Committee, to the class of 2016, serving a full three-year term, beginning January 1, 2014.

Mission Moments & Milestones

As I’m typing this, it’s actually the middle of December. Your Mission Committee spent a large part of the last meeting of the calendar year talking about where to send the funds remaining in our budget. The annual report (which will be available at the congregational meeting) will have a complete picture of our fiscal year, but I’d like to give you a thumbnail of who received donations in December. Local mission recipients included the Omaha Seminary Foundation, Covenant Network, Crossroads Prison Ministry and the folks who drive the bus for Crossroads, ACE Puppets, and immigrant families with children in Margo Forsythe’s classes. World mission recipients were Aqua Africa, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, Project Homecoming and Los Chavalitos.

The Crossroads Ministry Meal and worship service at PCM was well received. A big thank you to Sara for a great message at worship. Also the ACE troop presentation was well received and liked if all the picture taking on cell phones could be used as indications for how the audience enjoyed the performance.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  If you have lots of photos, send us an e-mail and we'll arrange for a place for you to upload them.  Thanks to all of you for helping us keep our website vibrant and up-to-date with all the things we do together!

Donations to ESL Families

The Deacons and the Mission Committee sponsored 41 immigrant families in December. These families have students in the OPS English as a Second language programs at Central Park and Mt. View Schools. On Sunday, December 15, PCM members brought fruit to worship. Long tables set up outside the sanctuary were overflowing with oranges, apples, and mangos. Those fruits were divided among the families and delivered to them before Christmas.

Thank You to Those Who Helped in the Office

Did you notice that we were without a church administrator for six weeks? I would be surprised if you noticed. Members of the Church stepped up and made things continue to happen, knowing that it was temporary, but willing to give extra time and energy to keep things going. Many of them have also helped our talented new administrator, Diana Sorenson, get “up to speed” on her duties and oriented to our life as a Church.
