Announcements

  • Today, January 22 is the final day to contribute to the Deacons Fire Fund Offering for Lawrence, Donna and Kendra Wilkins of Enon Valley.  Though the main house was spared from the fire, and while it may have water or smoke damage to some degree, it is habitable. The part that burned was an annex to the main house, built up against a brick wall, which stopped the fire from reaching the main dwelling.  The family living in annex lost everything, as did their granddaughter who is three or four.  Please make checks payable to Deacons Fire Fund.

  • The Mission/Evangelism Committee will have a coffee hour after church today, January 22.

  • The deadline to submit information for the February 2017 newsletter is today, January 22.  The February 2017 newsletter will be passed out on Sunday, January 29.

  • The Annual Reports will be passed out today, January 22.

  •  The Annual Congregational Meeting is next Sunday, January 29.  The congregation at that time will vote to receive the 2016 financial reports and approve 2017 Pastoral Terms of Call. 

  • 4G Young Adult Bible Study will meet on Monday, January 30.

  • The following items are needed for Project HOPE: Cereals, Pancake Mix and Syrup or any other nonperishable items are welcomed.  Monetary donations are also accepted; please make checks payable to Project HOPE Food Bank, and give to our HOPE Representative:  Ruth Ann Herman.

Bessemer’s Per Capita for 2017

Per Capita is a “per capita” contribution that supports the ongoing ministries of the Presbyterian Church, the Synod of the Trinity, and the Presbytery of Shenango.  Whether you are aware of it or not, our presbytery is vastly supportive of our congregation and our mission.  Because we wish to continue our contributions and enable the mission of the greater church, we ask each member to consider donating their part.  The breakdown is as follows:                                               

Presbytery of Shenango              $ 28.06

Synod of the Trinity            + $   2.30

General Assembly               +$   7.50

                                                                                             Total Apportionment     $ 37.86 per member
