Holiday Hours
The church office will not be open Thursday November 23rd in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. Office hours will instead be Tuesday November 21st and Wednesday November 22nd from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Christmas Crafts!

Join us on Sunday December 10th at 1:00 pm for Christmas Crafts, a family friendly event where you can come and enjoy fellowship while creating small gifts for both friends and family. All activities are free for everyone and donation are welcome.

Training Opportunity

On Sunday December 10th after Worship we will be offering AED training. If you are interested in learning how to use an AED machine to save lives, you are welcome to join us in the Prism. Contact the church office for more information!

Marianna's Hoagie Fundraiser
We are now selling Marianna's Hoagies.  This is a fundraiser for the organ fund. There is an order sheet on the bulletin board and there are also additional order forms that you can use for getting outside orders. Please see Pam Arbogast for the additional forms or any questions you may have. Orders are due Monday November 27 and hoagies/pizzas will be available at the church between 900-1030 on Wednesday December 6th.

Socks for Park Forest Day Nursery Preschool
We will be donating socks to put in the Park Forest Day Nursery children’s Christmas boxes. A tree in the narthex has paper socks with the names of the children, their age, gender, and shoe size. Please take a paper sock from the tree and purchase socks for that child. Then wrap the socks and add the sticky label with the child's name on it. If there are no more paper socks on the tree and you would still like to donate, we can use extra socks here at school. Label them: EXTRA. The children of the church will collect the socks during their Christmas program on December 11th. If you are unable to attend that Sunday, put your wrapped and clearly labeled socks under the tree in the Narthex. The PFDN Preschool staff and volunteers will then add the socks to the Children's Christmas Boxes. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the church office.

Christmas Bazaar Preparations!

Once again, it is time to prepare for the Christmas Bazaar, which will be held on Friday, December 1st and Saturday, December 2nd, and we could really use your help.  We are in need of any and all items that would add variety to our bazaar. A few suggestions are:  Tree ornaments, craft items, stitchery, wood projects, jewelry, jewelry boxes, glassware, small knick-knacks, books, and items for Mrs. Claus's Closet, (our rummage room).  No clothing, please.  Any contribution is welcome, no matter how small. If you have items for the bazaar, please bring them to the church, and leave them in the cluster - outside the bazaar room. All questions should be directed to any member of the bazaar committee - Marie Hargrove, Kathy Seymour, Debbie Harris, Carol Mumma, or Jean Grimm. Thank you

Worship Helpers!
The church is in need of volunteers to help with Sunday worship services! If you are interested in joining the worship services as Acolyte, Children’s Time, Sound System Operator or Liturgist, please visit the church bulletin board to sign up or visit then enter into the search bar and click on the link PFVUMC/Liturgist/Children’sTime/Acolyte Sign Up or call the office and leave a message with your name/sign up/ and date you would like to sign up.

Cookies for Coffee Hostesses
Many of us enjoy the coffee & cookies prepared by the coffee hostess each Sunday. It would be very helpful to her if she could go to the freezer and just get cookies out each Sunday. We are asking the congregation, in the next three weeks, to please help out and make cookies that can be frozen. Please bring them to the kitchen in a plastic bag or a container you don’t want back, so they are ready to go in the freezer. Thank you so much for all your help. Questions? Call Marie at 237-8063.

Purchase a Weis or Giant gift card and the church earns 5% for the Church Improvement Fund. The card holder receives the value of the card for purchases at Weis and Giant, including prescriptions, gas (Giant) and the post office (Weis). See George Hargrove during Fellowship Time

Altar Flowers
The church has a brass vase for those who wish to have flowers placed on the altar in memory or recognition of someone, or to celebrate a special occurrence like a birthday, anniversary or achievement. Contact Doris Amato at 237-3047 to make arrangements at least two weeks before the event.

electronic giving
We offer Electronic Giving as a way to automate your offerings. It is convenient for you and provides much-needed consistency for the church. Collection basket offerings can fluctuate significantly from week to week but when contributions are automated, the church receives funds on a steady, uninterrupted basis. Authorization forms are available at the church office, on the narthex table or at the bottom of the Worship page.
