Overbrook’s Annual Fall Outing is Coming Soon!
It’s time to get out your favorite potluck recipes for the Overbook Fall Outing at the John Beltz Retreat Center. The hot dogs, drinks and fixings will be provided, but we ask you to please bring a side dish or desert to share.
Join us for the fun on Sunday, October 7th. We’ll open the gates at 3:00 p.m. There will be a hike along the newly redone trails beginning at 4:00 p.m. We’ll have things ready to eat by about 5:30 p.m.
Please bring friends and neighbors to share the fall beauty at the Beltz Center (4834 Harlem Road, Galena). Directions available at church.
CHOIR NOTE – Though all choirs have begun their rehearsal season, please know that we welcome new members all year long. If you would like to sit in on a rehearsal or learn more about us, please connect with Sarah Shaffer, Choirmaster, or Nancy Deeth, Organist, any Sunday after worship.
HURRICANE FLORENCE RELIEF – Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) urges your support for those affected by Hurricane Florence. PDA is deploying teams to affected areas to meet with Presbyterian and community leadership to assist in coordinating relief efforts and mucking out homes and churches. If you’d like to contribute financial support to PDA for these relief efforts, you can write a check to Overbrook, with “PDA Relief” noted.
If you’d prefer to contribute directly to PDA, relief efforts can be designated to DR000169, which supports the church’s response to hurricanes impacting the U.S. Gifts can be made online, by phone at (800) 872-3283, or by check, which can be mailed to Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), P.O. Box 643700, Pittsburgh, PA 15264-3700.
Mailing Help Needed – Once a month (usually on the 3rd or 4th Friday morning), volunteers prepare the Overbrook World mailing. We sure could use a few more helpers! If you are interested, please contact Mary Shaffer in the church office.
OPEN SHELTER LUNCHES – Join us in the downstairs kitchen between services on Sunday, September 30th, to help pack lunches for the homeless served at the Open Shelter.
COFFEE (HELP) ANYONE? We are looking for members of the congregation to help set up and/or clean up the coffee service offered in the Narthex on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. If you are able to help out with this, even once a month, please contact the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-261-1040).
BLOCK PARTY HELP NEEDED: Help us welcome our neighbors to our 2nd Annual Neighborhood Block Party on Sunday evening, September 23rd, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. As the party hosts, we need all Overbrookers to help! How? We need your pop up tailgate tents, we need help setting up and cleaning up, and we need desserts. Sign-up sheets are next to the coffee table in the early service OR in the Narthex.
Our classes will be on hiatus beginning Saturday, August 18th. We will resume again in the fall, beginning Wednesday, October 3rd.
