FALL FESTIVAL KICK-OFF

Fall is an exciting time for Pine Valley Christian Church as members gather after a summer of activities.  The theme for FALL FESTIVAL 2014 is HANDS AND FEET OF GOD: CHURCH AND COMMUNITY.  We will celebrate the various ministries of the church.  “Hands” of God depict member care – how we as a gathered faith community care for each other spiritually, emotionally and physically.  “Feet” of God depict community care – how we as a scattered community of faith minister in a variety of ways in our community, both individually and in small groups. We will have lots of fun with “hands” and “feet” this fall.

FALL FESTIVAL POTLUCK

Hospitality will provide meat and drinks for the Fall Festival Potluck. There will be a sign up sheet this Sunday for designation of a salad, vegetable, or other side dishes and desserts.  Please be responsible for bringing your own service.  We look forward to having a good turnout.

CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS

If you volunteer with a non-profit organization, tutor at a school, help those in need in any way, you are the “feet” of God in the community.  We are planning some worship services around the theme of being the “hands” and “feet” of God at church and in the community.  Please contact muffin at muffinover@gmail.com and let me know where you volunteer and a little about what you do there.  Please respond ASAP.  Thanks bunches.  Muffin

IT’S TIME FOR THE CROP HUNGER WALK!

The annual Wichita version of the CROP Hunger Walk will be held on Sunday, October 5, at Sedgwick County Park.  The walk begins at 2:00 pm, starting at the Horseshoe Shelter.

You may be wondering “What is the CROP Hunger Walk?”  This is an annual event that raises funds for a group called Church World Service, which in turn uses those funds to combat hunger all over the world.  However, 25% of the donations are used for local hunger prevention programs in the communities where a given CROP Hunger Walk is held.

We need participants from PVCC to help out!  If you would like to do so, you can obtain a participant packet and an event information sheet from the table inside the east entrance.  Then you just need to find some friends who will sponsor you by pledging to donate any amount they feel comfortable giving.  You can collect their pledges either before or after the event, and then return them according to the instructions in your participant packet.

The walk itself is just a relaxed stroll around Sedgwick County Park, so it’s a fun way to get some fresh air and enjoy a great time outdoors, while also feeling good that you’re helping people who really need support.

The Wichita CROP Walk organization has its own web site, where you can get more information about our local event: http://www.cropwalkwichita.org.  The local group is also organizing a peanut butter drive, so that’s another way to help out.  If you want to purchase peanut butter, or collect some from your friends, you can take it with you to the event and drop it off there.

Feel free to contact Bill Delaney if you have questions or want more information.
