Dorcas Quilt Blessing

The quilting group has been busy again this year crafting lovely quilts for many local causes. The quilts will be displayed on the pews Sunday, Dec 12, blessed and sent. This year, you’ll have an opportunity to purchase quilts for yourself or gift giving. All quilts, no matter size, are only $40 each. After worship, simply select the quilt(s) of your choosing in the sanctuary then pay for your purchase in the Dorcas room. The ladies kindly ask that you write a check or have exact cash. These dollars help support their work enabling them to buy batting, thread, needles, material, and machine repairs when needed. If you have any questions, Rebecca Kirkpatrick or Gail Schoonmaker will be happy to help!

PLC Stewardship: Joyful Giving

On Nov 14, ministry intentions for 2022 were returned and blessed on the altar during worship. At that time, we had received $180,020 in pledges! Many new Time & Talent sheets were filled out continuing our strong volunteer support at Peace. Extra T&Ts are always in the wall rack in the fellowship hall if you need another.

 Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Gifts

What an incredible outpouring toward global ministry with 153 Shoeboxes filled to the brim with love and special gifts that will reach children throughout the world. Two fantastic raffles were offered this year and a total of $1,300 in tickets were sold supporting the cost of shipping our boxes. The lucky winners were Sharon Alexander for the gift card basket, and Mary Cockerham for the Northwest Charcuterie basket. Sincere thanks to Thrivent Financial for supporting Peace with a $250 Action Team Card for this outreach mission project. Special thanks to Joann Carlson for her wondrous coordination effort and exuberant passion for Shoebox Gifts!!
