Funds for Families The Bible tells us that within the earliest Christian communities, followers of Jesus would not claim that any of their possessions was their own, “but they shared everything they had.” There were no needy persons among them for those with possessions would often sell what they had, bring the money and lay it at the apostles’ feet to be distributed to anyone who had need. (see Acts 4:32-35) Several years later the early church father Tertullian would write a defense of the Christian movement In it he imagined outsiders looking at Christians and saying, “Look how they love one another… and how they are ready to die for each other.” This tradition of caring for each other has been a entral part of the churches history since its earliest conception. Several years ago, it was decided that Summerside Presbyterian would establish a special fund, designated to help families in need. Recently we have had the opportunity to draw from this fund in order to offer financial help to those facing challenging situations. Over the next few weeks we would ask you to prayerfully consider contributing to this valuable ministry so that God’s work may continue among us in this way. Gifts towards this ministry may be designated as such on your envelopes.
Our church family is thankful to Kim Chieb who has been providing ministry to our congregation’s youngest members throughout the past year. As Kim takes a welldeserved break throughout the summer months, children will be invited to join us in worship. There are pew-packs prepared and are available on the welcome table as you enter the sanctuary. Children are welcome to take them to their pews or to the table at the front of the sanctuary. We recognize however that asking some of our youngest members to sit through worship is an unrealistic expectation. Therefore we are asking for volunteers who would be willing and able to provide care for them in the nursery. If we can have 4 or 5 volunteers, each one will only need to cover a week or two at most. What an easy (and fun!) way to help out your church family and give parents a chance to worship knowing that their children are cared for. Please give this your prayerful consideration. A signup sheet is available in the lobby. Thank you.
