Fellowship Hall Chair Cleaning
August 24th 6—7 p.m.
The Congregational Care Team is inviting everyone to come help clean our Fellowship Hall chairs to start the new school year off. We will be brushing of the chairs, wiping them down and pulling out the ones that need to be repaired. The more hands we have the lighter the work will be! Please consider coming on August 24 from 6-7 pm to help make our Fellowship Hall chairs presentable for the new school year.

BLANKET OFFERING SUNDAY--AUGUST 28th
 Your contribution to Blanket Sunday will help people in Bowling Green, Wood County, the USA, and all around the world. 50% of your donation will go to Church World Services, and 50% will stay here to be used through our Deacon's Shop.
 
Through Church World Services we will help provide blankets and emergency food packages to refugees and the homeless, gardening tools to refugees for growing vegetables, and sand dams for people to have a source of clean water. Checks should be made payable to First Presbyterian Church and please write “blanket offering” on the memo line.
 
Through our Deacon's Shop you will help provide blankets, diapers, and personal health care items to those in need in our community.
 
The Deacons thank you for all contributions.
