Fall Gathering
October 28th, 2023 at John Knox Center

$10 per person

Come enjoy the autumn weather, a wonderful speaker, delicious lunch, and great fellowship at our Fall Gathering!
Kay Peas is our guest speaker. Kay has years of experience speaking at workshops and participating in a variety of leadership and teaching positions in her church and Christian women’s groups.  Kay will speak to us about FINGERPRINTS—specifically, the fingerprints left on her by the women in her life.
We encourage YOU to bring photos or small memorabilia of the women who left their fingerprints on you!  We will display them together and share our memories with each other over lunch.
Following lunch, we will have worship led by the Rev. Dr. Wendy Neff, the newly elected General Presbyter of our Presbytery.

Our mission focus at this gathering will be Sunset Gap
, particularly its food distribution program to residents in an area where hunger insecurity is particularly severe. Sunset Gap is always in need of goods for its standard food boxes. We hope you will help out by bringing items for those boxes to the gathering. Suggested items are:

Macaroni and cheese
Breakfast items
Spaghetti noodles
Spaghetti sauce (canned sauce works well for distribution but glass jars are also appreciated)
Canned vegetables
Canned meats
Peanut butter
Storage bags: two gallons, gallon, quart and sandwich.

The retreat begins 10am (Regisration 9:30am)

Lunch is included in the $10 registration fee.
