Sunday School Kick Off September 10

Annually on the Saturday nearest September 11, volunteers gather in the kitchen at Buffalo PC to bake cookies for the first-responders in our area.  These groups include the Buffalo Township Volunteer Fire Company, the Sarver Volunteer Fire Company, and the municipal workers which include the police.  The baking date this year is Saturday, September 9, 2017.

In order to carry out this effort of appreciation, donations of money and supplies are needed.  Usually four cookie recipes are made which means flour, sugar, nuts, chocolate chips, raisins, shortening, eggs, and leavening ingredients are used.  When possible, recipes are prepared ahead of time so that only baking occurs on Saturday.  Help is always needed to monitor the ovens and package the cookies for delivery. Contact Virginia Shirey with any questions 724-353-1278.

Everyone is invited to attend Kick Off Sunday on September 10.  inter-generational fun begins for all at 9:30.  Community building activities are planned, along with a time of singing and Bible fun.    Following our regular Sunday service will be a picnic for all. This event is for the whole church, not just those who attend Sunday School on a regular basis.  Please come out and take part.  Invite a friend or round up the grandchildren and let’s make it a real celebration.

The PW were able to take inventory at their monthly work meeting and determined that the church will be able to put together 30 school kits. In order to complete the kits, a few items are still needed: 13 hand held pencil sharpeners (not small), 11 boxes of crayons (24 ct. only), 2 rulers (English and metric measures), and 8 blunt tipped scissors. All items needed by September 17th, kits will be dedicated on September 24th.

The women are hoping to assemble 20 hygiene kits. Still needed to finish them are 54 band aids, 6 nail clippers, 3 wide tooth combs, and 6 hand towels.

Thank you to all who have already donated!
