The PFUMC Health Ministry is pleased to announce a support group for family members of older adults which began in September. The group will meet the third Monday of every month in Fellowship Hall. Next meeting: Oct 16. The program will begin with a light supper at 5:30 pm and the meeting will follow at 6:00 pm. The mission of the group is to offer support, information and advocacy to those who are caregivers for older adult family members and friends.
Let's all RISE AGAINST HUNGER -- Coming Saturday, Nov. 11th, in Fellowship Hall, our Third Annual Rise Against Hunger meal packing event. We hope you will pitch in with your donations of time and money. We raised $4000 last year and packed 13,824 meals. We hope to beat that total this year.!!
Many of you have been asking, "How can we help?," in light of the devastation in Texas resulting from Hurricane Harvey. Here are some things you can do:
- Continue to pray for those whose lives have been impacted, as well as the Early Response Teams, disaster coordinators and the many local volunteers.
- Help us put together Cleaning Kits and Hygiene Kits. Items needed/Instructions can be picked up at the Welcome Desk.
- Give to UMCOR's relief and recovery efforts -- make checks payable to PFUMC with Hurricane Harvey on the memo line.
October Memory Verse: The Lord sees into the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7)
October 22: David and Abigail. Nabal, a rich farmer, refused to provide food to David and his men. Abigail, Nabal's wife, heard the problem and stepped in to help. She gathered food and supplies and offered them to David, convincing him not to harm Nabal. When Nabal died, David asked Abigail to become his wife. 1 Samuel 25:1-42
