Special Offering

We will continue collecting the special offering for Gavin Palkovich, a 6 year old little boy (Great Grandson of Charlotte Palkovich, Grandson of JoAnn Palkovich) who has also attended worship here over the past few years.  Gavin suffered a sudden seizure followed by a cardiac arrest.  The underlying cause still remains undiagnosed as he continues his care at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.  The family has incurred extensive medical bills from the life flight and the extended hospital stay.  Gavin and his family have a long road to recovery ahead of them with continued therapy and will need to purchase specialized equipment to care for Gavin.  Please consider making a contribution to help using the blank white envelopes in your pews and mark them “Gavin Palkovich.”  If you write a check make it payable to Bessemer Presbyterian Church and mark on the memo line G. Palkovich.  We will be receiving the offering through today, November 25.
