Prayer Blanket Ministry

The Prayer Blanket Ministry touches the lives of those who receive the blankets and those who construct and distribute them. The Prayer Blanket Ministry sews Palm sized blankets and squares for those in need of physical or emotional healing. 

Prayers are offered as the blankets are made in hope that the recipient will experience God's mercy, peace, strength, and healing power. The blankets are blessed prior to distribution.  

Join us in this beautiful ministry to bring comfort to the sick while sharing in fellowship and fun! No sewing experience required!

 

Our Ladies meet Thursdays at 2:00pm in room 3

Fellowship Team

The purpose of the Fellowship Team is to provide support and opportunities for our church family, friends and community to come together and connect in unity with Jesus Christ to actively do God’s will. To that end, after almost 2 years of being very restricted in our activities due to Covid, we are beginning again to plan activities to bring our church family together. We work hard planning and executing activities but we have fun and a wonderful, caring team spirit. We welcome (and need) suggestions from the congregation and also more members on the Fellowship Team.  We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. at the church. Members include: Barb Becker, Linda Bertolet, Debby Fadlevich, Cheryl Ogle, Carol Scott, Pam Kelly, Janet Foley, Terry Humleker, Sally Nunziato, Sandy Rossmeyer, Kathleen Shematek, Mary Sims. If you have questions, suggestions or would like to join the Team, please contact Bonda Garrison, Chair at bondagarr@yahoo.com or 386-871-0475. 

Next meeting is August 2022.

Endowment Team

This entity is separate from our church and these are key, select words from the by-laws: The purposes for which the corporation is formed are for charitable and religious purposes . . . and to establish a perpetual fund, which obtains and distributes annual income to Christ Presbyterian Church . . . and to invest or deal with the principal, or the income thereof, in such manner as described herein, and as in the judgement of the directors, will best promote the purposes of the corporation.

In essence, this is a fund for people who are hesitant to make a donation that would simply be used for an operating expense such as salaries. Annually the fund transfers 5% to the church's general fund.

We welcome new members to our team and meet quarterly. Team members/directors are: Mike Abate, Stephanie Coleman, Susan Kaznoski, Mike Ogle, Larry Sims. Tony Zaffuto, Chair, can be contact at 386-257-1895, szaffuto001@cfl.rr.com

We need and welcome new members to the Team and are particularly in need of those with interest in investing and the financial markets. Please contact, Susan Kaznoski, Team Leader at 386-679-8365, with any questions and to learn more about your Finance Team. Please consider coming to a meeting to learn more about how and what we do.
