10:00am - Worship � 11:00am - Fellowship

Worship this week - August 17th

Dr. Carolyn Helsel's sermon, based on Genesis 45.1-15, will consider the story from Joseph's perspective. The redemption of not only Joseph but his brothers is witnessed in Joseph's speech: who could have expected this outcome, and who could have forgiven his brothers as Joseph forgave?

Back to School Backpacks

It's time to sign up for the back to school program. We are working with the Framingham Resource center to provide 20 Kindergarten students with backpacks for the new school year. These are disadvantaged children who need basic school supplies to start the year. You can sign up and choose your student in the foyer. A list of suggested items as well as your student's personal preferences are included to make shopping easier. An additional clothing item is also optional. Gift certificates are also very much appreciated. Packages are due back at the church by August 24th. Contact Heather Goetsch with any questions.

Auction Date and Request for Donations

Preparations have begun ... and you can help! On October 18th at 6:00pm, we will hold our Annual Live and Silent Auction to support the 2015 Mission Trip to the Philippines. PCIS adult and youth missions groups will engage in projects to help the Little Children of the Philippines, a program that PCIS has actively supported for many years. The auction has been a great fundraiser in past years due to your generosity and donations. We are currently seeking auction items to offer (dinners, vacation homes, tickets, gift certificates, etc.) Please contact Gail Hamel if you have questions.

LCP 2013

It's that time of the year when our hearts turn toward Christmas...

Well, maybe not quite yet...but it is time to collect Christmas items to send to our friends in the Philippines.

In addition to the gift suggestions listed on the flyers outside of Fellowship Hall or online here, there is a new need for food items for the preschools. We are being told that food is increasingly expensive, so things like peanut butter and pasta are specifically requested. You might also consider buying some cans of tuna fish to include with this shipment. In order to ensure that our gifts reach the Philippines in time for the holidays, the deadline for dropping off gifts is Sunday, September 14th after the first service. Sponsors can also leave presents to send to their children but we'd ask that you consider helping with the shipment costs which are $95/box (regardless of weight). Please see the poster in the lobby and the display in the Fellowship Hall for more details. If there are questions, contact Sally Millar. Thank you for your ongoing support of this important ministry!  

Start-Up Sunday
September 7th

Join us as we kick-off a new year with food, fun, and fellowship. Sign-up online or in the lobby and let us know what food you can bring to the picnic. 

Got a grill?

We are looking for a grill to borrow and someone with a truck who can help transport it to the church. 

Ideas for games?

Do you have an idea for games/activities we can play indoors or outdoors? 

If you have any questions or ideas or can help out, go online or contact Ted Welte.

The Session has called a meeting of the Congregation and Corporation of the Presbyterian Church in Sudbury for Sunday, August 24th immediately following worship. The purpose of the meeting is to act on the report of the Nominating Committee to elect a youth elder.

New Volunteer Opportunity 

Love babies and toddlers? Willing to lend a hand? We are currently developing a list of possible volunteers to help support the nursery staff when an extra set of hands is  needed on a Sunday morning. If you are interested, please contact the office.

New Beginnings

It's not to late to join in one of the series of small group meetings asking questions about our strengths, what we do well, and what we would like to do better. Several meeting options are still available to meet varying schedules. Sign-up sheets are in the lobby and online.
