GriefShare New Location Here at PCPC Begins August 15

The fall session of GriefShare begins on Thursday evenings (Aug. 15 – Nov. 21) from 6:00 – 8:00 pm in a NEW location at the Plain City Presbyterian Church.  Anyone who is grieving the death of a loved one is welcome to attend any of the GriefShare sessions.  Each session is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence.  The 1st session, titled "Is This Normal?" introduces participants to GriefShare and explains why their grief experience is harder than they imagined, why the intensity and duration of their emotions are normal and appropriate, and despite how they feel right now, there is reason for hope.  Each GriefShare session includes a video seminar, small group discussion, and workbook study.  There is a $15 suggested donation, which covers the cost of the workbook.  To register, please call Deaconess Janet Nicol at 614-561-7411. St. Paul Lutheran  in Chuckery is sponsoring the event being held at PCPC.  Working together to serve the Lord.

Feed My Sheep Food Bank  Every Saturday 5:00- 6:00 pm
Do you know someone in need of food this month?  Funds not stretching like they use to?  Every Saturday we gather donations from Krogers , Der Dutchman and Whole Foods to provide lots of fresh veggies and fruits as well as breads, baked goods and sometimes milk and meat.   Volunteers gather about 4:30 to help unload and sort the items.  Extra hands are always welcomed especially those who can help carry the boxes of food.  We are always in need of plastic grocery bags, plastic gloves (Size Med or Large), Qt and Gal plastic bags, and Clorox wipes.  Young people who need volunteer hours are also welcomed.
