What's Happening...

Summer Office Hours --
The church office will be closed on most Fridays during the summer.  If you need to stop by, you may want to call ahead just to be sure Christine is in.  Phone and email messages will be checked on days that the office is closed so you can be assured someone will get back to you if needed.  Wishing everyone a happy & safe summer!

Spaghetti Dinner -- Pastor Marlon Irrarragorry of the Reformed Presbyterian Church in Cuba will be visiting us Sept. 26-Sept. 29.  He will be our guest pastor and presenting a sermon on Sunday, Sept. 29.  Following that worship, PVPC will be having a spaghetti dinner in his honor and everyone is invited to come.  More info to follow but you can sign up today in Fellowship Hall or call the church office. 

KEEP SUNDAY HOLY -- Our church, along with other local churches is a part of the Keep Sunday Holy Team.  We want to keep Sunday morning free of mandatory events like sporting practises or games.  That way, we can choose church, if we feel it has an importance in our family.  This effort was started as a result of a letter from a teenager about how her family has been torn up over the choice of church attendance versus other “mandatory” events outside of church.  So far we have started conversations via letters to the Editor.  We manned a tent for 2 days at the West End Fair to share our feelings.  We are also encouraging other churches to join in this effort.  We consider this to be a non-confrontational, ecumenical bridge building service to strengthen families in their spiritual growth.

Men's Breakfast Study
Meets the first Saturday of each month, 8:00 am at the church. We have completed "The Mayberry Experience" and are now working on projects at our church and in our community. If you have a project that you need help with, please contact the church office and leave a message for Tom or Bill. All men are invited to join us on the first Saturday of each month at 8:00 am to 9:30 am for fellowship, breakfast & bible study.

Sunday School -- Classes for children and young adults are off for the summer. Adult classes will continue year round and all are invited to participate. Just join us here at PVPC at 9:15 and classes will start by 9:30. Topics of discussion change from Sunday to Sunday so there is no need to "prepare" other than coming with a desire to learn. Join us!

Women's Bible Study Group - 
A summer schedule will be announced if there is enough interest for having one.

Book Club - Currently on break for the spring & summer.  Look for this group to start up again late summer, early fall.  If you have any ideas for books that you would like to see discussed, please email the church office at pvpchurch@frontier.com or speak directly to Ann.

Bible Classes - Everyone is invited to take part in our Discovering Your Faith Bible Classes with Pastor Bob. Discover where you are in your faith walk by joining us for weekly classes that will follow worship with a light lunch. These classes are planned to be held througout the year, so keep on the lookout for when they will be taking place.

Crisis Meals
- Deacon's are asking for meals to be prepared ahead of time and frozen in the church freezer.  Please label what the meal is and the date prepared.  This will expedite the process of getting meals to those in need.   Any questions, just as any Deacon.

Food Pantry - We are always in need for items.  We try to help anyone in need and we are also trying our best to help out the Pleasant Valley Ecumenical Network by sharing with them what we have.  Currently PVEN is in need of peanut butter and cereals from our church.  They also need "no-show" socks for students in the Pleasant Valley School District.  Please help us to keep our pantry well stocked by remembering those in need as you shop.  No donation is too small!  Donations can be brought directly to PVEN, (located at the corner of McIlhaney Road & Greenview Drive behind the Chestnuthill Diner) on Tuesday & Friday mornings, 9:00-11:30 or left here at PVPC where Christine will make sure they are delivered to PVEN.  THANK YOU!
