Adult Education (Bible Study): October 6

I’m back! And so is Wednesday Bible Study! (Well, for a week, then I’m missing a week again, but that will be the last time, I think).

Wednesday, October 6 at 7:00 pm via Zoom we will focus mostly on the Book of Hebrews, but note we also read since the last time: Isaiah 45-66; Jeremiah 1-6; Psalms 107-113; and John 1-3. So you may want to bring up insights or questions about any of those.

Here again is the login information:

Your Financial Gifts For 2022

Friends in Christ,

During September and October we will be asking for your continued financial support for 2022. We are still dealing with this pandemic, which has now lasted longer than a year and a half. Some things in our lives have changed and others have stayed the same. Changes have been social distancing, wearing masks, fist bumps, illness and sometimes death. However, we are still stewards before God, serving as best we can our church and community.

The Technology Committee considerably upgraded their video equipment to broadcast our worship service every week. So, whether we are together in the sanctuary or watching from home live or later in the week, you won’t miss a single episode.We continue to serve through our Mission Committee with school supplies and other needs to Edison Elementary School, clothes and other goods to Siena Francis House and dinners to Rainbow House.

The Red Cross Blood Drives hosted by PCM serve our community in a way that money can’t buy.

We have been able to serve God with your monetary gifts and time, and we thank you for your support. Whether you tithe or just give what you can, every penny is appreciated. This gift is to support the general operating fund of the church (i.e., staff salaries, building costs [utilities, maintenance, etc.], and mission activities). This is separate from the capital campaign that took place in 2019.

To complete your pledge for 2022, you can do any one of the following:

  • Submit your pledge electronically by using the form below.
  • Complete the pledge form that was mailed to you and return it to PCM via: 1) mail to PCM, 2)
    email to PCM Office Administrator, or 3) drop-off at PCM office,

“Fear the Lord your God, live in a way that pleases him, love him and serve him with all your heart and
soul.” Deuteronomy 10:12

Sincerely in Christ,
Your Stewardship and Finance Committee: Mark Frans – chairperson, Eric Bremers, Kevin Breyfogle,
John Burg, Barb Dasenbrock, Bill Joe, Rev. Bob Keefer, Guy Shelton, Sue Skeans, and Ashley Stevens


The online pledge form below is provided for your convenience.

I/We plan to give in 2022 the above amount the general fund of the church.
PCM is charged $40 per member to underwrite the annual administrative costs of Presbytery, Synod, and General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church [U.S.A.]
Thank you for helping Presbyterian Church of the Master in "Seeking Christ, everywhere, every day, in everyone."

Sunday School News

I caucused with the Christian Education Committee today after worship and we decided to begin in-person Sunday School for grades 1-6 next Sunday, September 12 at 9:00 am.
There will be one large, broadly-graded class.
For those of you who prefer to keep your children home (which we understand completely) we will attempt to provide the materials to you so you can do at-home lessons until we are able also to get a Zoom class up and running.
Since no one has been willing to take responsibility, we do not yet have a class for high school students. Grades 7-9 will be in confirmation class, which also begins next Sunday.
I will continue to do adult education on Wednesday evenings via Zoom. I hope we will be able to do in-person class before too long. The problem, once again, is lack of leadership. Since I am helping with confirmation class, I cannot lead the adult class as well.
If you have any questions, please contact Anne Weatherwax in the church office beginning Tuesday.
Blessings,
Pastor Bob
