On Saturday, October 15 at 10:30 am in Page Hall Presbyterian Women of Orangewood are hosting a morning of discovery. We will be focusing on "Who Are We?" by exploring what it means to be a part of the inclusive, caring Presbyterian Denomination. This morning will start with sweet rolls and move through the connectional Presbyterian denomination, our membership in Orangewood PC (USA) membership and finally "Who We Are!" as we make plans for our meetings, our tours and our focus for the next nine months. All women who worship at Orangewood are invited.
Orangewood Senior Fellowship group, SAGES, will be holding our first luncheon meeting this year on Tuesday, October 11 in Page Hall. We gather in Page Hall no earlier than 11:15 am. Cost remains $4.00/person. If you need a ride, please call the church office. It is a great time to visit and get ready for a new SAGES season.
All-Church Annual Meeting
The Orangewood Annual Meeting and lunch will take place on Sunday, October 16, at 11:45 in Page Hall, right after service. We invite and encourage everyone who is a member of Orangewood to take part in this important meeting. Fried chicken and biscuits will be provided by our Hospitality Council. You are asked to bring a side dish or a dessert to share.
Peace and Global Witness
Today we will be collecting donations for the Peace and Global Witness Offering, one of the four great offerings of the church. This offering draws Presbyterians together as active peacemakers and provides education and exposure to those who show us how to do this work well. It allows us to create resources for dealing with conflict and nurturing reconciliation and stand in support of our global sisters and brothers. We keep 25% of this offering to be used locally. This year the Mission Committee has chosen Stronghearts Native Helpline as our recipient. It is a domestic violence hotline for indigenous people in Arizona. Donations may be put in the offering plate, brought or sent to the church office, or by using the “give” button online.
Change for Kids
There is a donation container on the welcome table in the back of the church, where you can put your donations for our kids’ programs. This year our kids have adopted a child from Mexico. He is 6 years old and his name is Victor. You can see more in the Plumbline. All donations this year will go to help Victor and his family.
