We are gearing up to do a new Church Directory! We will once again use Lifetouch, the company that produced our last directory. Mark your calendars now for photo dates - July 5, 6, 7, and 8. You can currently schedule your appointment online at: https://booknow-lifetouch.appointment-plus.com/y19yygb4. There will be a table for sign ups after church in the coming weeks. Volunteers are needed to sit at the sign-up table and to greet guests when they arrive for their photo appointment; please contact Angie in the church office at 548-3188 to offer your assistance.
First Presbyterian will participate in the Main Street Greenville First Friday event on July 7. We will offer free sugar cookies & Oreos and have cookie decorating materials available for children (icing & sprinkles). Monetary donations to purchase the cookies & materials at a discounted rate through a wholesale store would be appreciated. Volunteers to monitor cookie decorating and pass out church information are needed as well. To volunteer, contact Angie in the church office. Monetary donations can be made by placing a marked envelope or check in the collection box with your offering marked "First Friday."
Join your Presbyterian family at Fifth Third Field on Sunday, July 9 at 2:00 p.m. as the Dayton Dragons take on the South Bend Cubs for an entertaining and exciting game. We will be located in the stadium with seats provided. Tickets are $2.00 per person due to the fact that the event is being subsidized. There are 25 tickets available on a first come, first serve basis. Tickets are available for immediate family members at this time. Please sign up in the Narthex and make your payment in the church office to reserve your tickets.
First Presbyterian will hold the Annual Church Picnic on Sunday, August 6 at the Greenville City Park, Shelter #3 at 5:00 p.m. Following the picnic, we plan to attend the Concert in the Park at the location where the Band Shell used to be. Picnic attendees will be asked to bring a medium to large sized covered dish to share with the congregation; meat will be provided by the church. Watch for RSVP forms in Sunday bulletins soon.
Save the Date! Saturday, September 9 and Sunday, September 10 will be our annual retreat at Chenoweth Trails. More information will be available soon.
