Zoom Sunday School for Children

Children of all ages are welcome to join us on Sunday mornings from 9:45 to 10:15 a.m. on Zoom for Bible stories, music, conversation, and visits with our crazy friend Sid. Zoom Sunday school is led by Eva Stimson, Jerry Van Marter, and Bev Machin. Please contact one of them if you are interested in joining the leadership team. Contact Jerry Van Marter to get on the list to receive weekly Zoom invitations and curriculum materials. The class will take a summer break after Pentecost. May 28, 2023 will be the last meeting until fall.

CHPC’s Presbyterian Women’s Circle is collecting items that will go into hygiene kits for Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. We invite others in the congregation to join us in this collection. Items requested include:     

  • toothbrushes individually wrapped
  • unscented, wrapped bar soap
  • 1-inch-wide Band-Aids
  • wide-toothed combs (no picks)
  • washcloths   
  • hand towels 
  • Zip-Lock one-gallon bags
  • Monetary donations are also accepted.

Do not substitute or add any items. This request is for new items, rather than used. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is specific in its request.

Please leave your donations in the Gathering Room, off the Narthex, no later than Sunday, May 14. Presbyterian Women will deliver them to Beulah PC where the hygiene kits will be assembled. If you have any questions, contact Diana Stephen, dasky@bellsouth.net
