It’s not too late to contribute to the Presbyterian Church USA’s “Peace and Global Witness Offering.” Each congregation is asked to designate 25% of the offering, to go to a particular effort to promote “health, wholeness, and harmony” (the biblical definition of “peace”). This year our 25% will go to HOPE Domestic Violence services, which has an office in Paris (in addition to its “home base” in Charleston). Special envelopes are on the table at the back of the Sanctuary, or you may use any envelope marked “Peace Offering.”

The Compassionate Clothing Closet’s annual blanket drive is taking place during October. Your generosity of a new or gently-used blanket will serve to provide a means to offset winter’s chill. Blankets can be brought here to the church, or taken directly to the CCC, 211 N. Central St. on Mondays from 10 to 1 or Tuesdays from Noon to 2.
