Westminster News – February 4, 2010

Good Morning, Westminster!


Helpful hands are needed for the Wednesdays With Westminster dinner on February 10.  The food is taken care of, but we need volunteers for serving and clean-up.   Please call or email Renee or Sandra if you’re able to help.


The Community Service ministry team will be serving dinner at the Presbyterian Youth Student Center on Sunday, February 28.  Donations of food or funds to purchase food are needed to feed this group of about 35 students.  Please contact Kathy Shilling at jkshilling@comcast.net or 470-8993 to make a contribution.  On behalf of the Community Service team and the students who share the dinner, thank you for your support.


Our much-anticipated progressive dinner is Saturday, February 13.  The evening begins with appetizers at Charles Towne Landing at 6:00 p.m., followed by dinner at our hosts’ homes at 7:00.  The evening ends with dessert at Westminster.  The sign-up sheet is in the Schilling Gallery.  Please note whether you’re bringing an appetizer or a dessert.  The cost is $10 per person, and childcare is provided.  You won’t want to miss it!


News from the Presbytery of East Tennessee:

Our denomination has sent some $409,000 in aid to Haiti, along with 35,000 “Gift of the Heart” emergency kits.  Carlos Martinez, a PCUSA representative is in Port-au-Prince to help assess the situation and future needs and to help deliver what is most needed.   The PDA website, http://www.pcusa.org/pda/help/goh.htm,  is an excellent resource for news and information about how we can help.


Please note:

Today’s Abbey shows a 12:15 p.m. time for the confirmation class.  The class actually meets during the Sunday School hour, at 10:00 a.m.


Have a blessed day!
