  • This year for our Christmas offering we will be contributing towards a presbytery-wide collection to send a donation for food relief to South Sudan: "Most recently the South Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church (SSPEC) has put a lot of time and efforts into helping the hungry due to the economic instability. The situation was very extreme with wide spread starvation. But the South Sudanese are putting their trust in the Lord and are truly committed to sharing their faith and resources with others.  There is a deep joy in living their lives for the Lord."  The offering will be collected today, December 23, Christmas Eve, December 24, and next Sunday, December 30.

  • The following items are needed: Peanut Butter and Jelly or any other non-perishable 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.

  • The Church Offices will be closed this Tuesday, December 25 and Wednesday, December 26 in celebration of Christmas.  They also will be closed next Tuesday, January 1, 2019 and Wednesday, January 2, 2019 in celebration of the New Year.
