  7. Skeet's Pantry Fall is Harvest Time: Please Help Us Fill a Cornucopia for Skeet's Pantry! We all think about food and family when autumn rolls around and we get closer to the special holidays in this beautiful season of the year. Our Skeet's Pantry families think about these holidays too, and the blessings they receive from the generous donors to our Pantry. Their thanks echo through Fellowship Hall on the 3rd Friday morning of each month and their smiles make all your gifts and our volunteers' efforts worthwhile.
      Skeet's "Shopping List" for fall:
    Peanut Butter & Jelly - Tuna Fish - Canned Soup - Pasta & Pasta Sauce - Cereal- Canned Fruit - Plastic Grocery Bags (in good condition)
    As always, please double check expiration dates, and THANK YOU SO MUCH for your help!  Please drop items at the church office or in the wheel barrow outside the Sanctuary during church on Sunday. NO OUT-OF-DATE food can be accepted. Thank you.
  8. Can You Help Skeet's Pantry? We are looking for strong volunteers who have a truck or van. The third Thursday of the month from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. we pick up fresh produce from the Farmer's Against Hunger truck in Trenton. We deliver the produce back to the church for Skeet's food distribution the next day. This is the primary way Skeet's Pantry gets fresh produce for its patrons every month. If you know someone who can lift 50 lbs. or has a truck or van and wants to help feed the hungry, please contact Anne Gordon or the church office. You do not have to be a church member. Please spread the word!
  9. Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) The first Thursday of every month volunteers serve the evening meal at TASK. We leave the church in the church van at 2:30 p.m. and return by 5:30 p.m. It is a great way to serve God and others. No experience necessary, just a heart to serve. Please contact Anne Gordon or church office if you are up to the TASK!
  10. Send Us Your Nominations! THE NOMINATING COMMITTEE needs your recommendations for people to serve as Elders and Deacons for the coming three year terms. People nominated to the offices of the church should be persons of strong faith, dedicated discipleship, and love of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Their manner of life should be a demonstration of the Christian gospel in the church and in the world.

    Elders are chosen by the people of God to exercise leadership, government and discipline and have responsibilities for the life of a particular church and the church at large. Together with the pastors they should encourage the people in the worship and service of God, equip and renew them for their tasks within the church and for their mission in the world, visit and comfort and care for the people with special attention to the poor, the sick, the lonely, and those who are oppressed.

    Deacons are set apart for a ministry of sympathy, witness and service after the example of Jesus Christ. Persons of spiritual character, honest repute, of exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, warm sympathies, and sound judgment should be chosen for this office. Deacons are called to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless and to any who may be in distress.

    Please provide the names of people you think would serve well as Elders or Deacons. Nominating Form here.
