Bowling and In-N-Out Party
How many books of the Bible do you know? Each summer, the youth group works toward memorizing all 66 books of the Bible and are rewarded with a fun excursion. This summer we were gifted a Concourse Bowling/In-N-Out party by a generous member of the congregation and will be using this as our BOB (Books of the Bible) outing this year.
On the Sundays in October, the youth will have baskets in the patio to collect new socks from church members. At the end of the month, the youth will deliver the socks to the homeless ministry at Garden Grove Presbyterian Church. As you may know, in the winter months one of the biggest struggles for the homeless is keeping dry socks and shoes. Our goal is to collect 200 pairs of socks in October. Socks can be for men, women, children or infants.
Trunk or Treat
Please join us for Trunk or Treat on Monday, October 30! There will be games, food, a costume contest and, of course, CANDY! We would love to have as many church families involved as possible, so please consider hosting a trunk that evening! Contact Ashley or Lori after the Sunday morning worship services more information
TPC Youth Deliver Comfort to Cancer Patients
On August 13, eight TPC youth and friends assembled 24 Chemo Comfort Kits for Breastlink of Orange. Each kit included items to help breast cancer patients cope with the challenges of chemotherapy, such as water bottles and skin lotion for dehydration, antibacterial gel to support a weakened immune system, lemon drops for metallic taste in the mouth, cozy socks for sore foot syndrome, peppermint tea for a sour stomach, etc. Each kit was personalized with a handmade card offering a message of hope, a decorated journal, and a cheerful bag to hold all the contents. Breastlink Volunteer Services Coordinator, Jill Canales reports that TPC's kits are given to patients at their chemotherapy orientation appointment, so that they have a tangible expression of comfort immediately after hearing about the possible side effects of their care. The TPC Youth wish to thank the Deacons for underwriting the costs of this project.
Thank you to all who participated in this year’s Souper Bowl of Caring. Though the congregation overwhelmingly donated in favor of the Atlanta Falcons, they were not able to hold their lead in the game. The real winners, though, are our neighbors who will directly benefit from your generosity, so THANK YOU, and remember that together we can tackle hunger in our own community!
The recipients of the food and cash collection were Family Promise, Families Forward and the Santa Ana First Presbyterian Church. They received 300 cans and $150!
