Week of October 7-13, 2018 Item of the Week Shampoo, Conditioner, Soap, Lotion (we gladly accept unopened hotel samples) On Friday mornings, we distribute not only food in our food pantry, but also other items of necessity. Through your generous support, we provide dishwashing liquid to everyone who visits our food pantry. Until recently, we also offered a choice of laundry detergent (powder), but the store has discontinued the product and we have not yet found a replacement at a reasonable cost. In addition, we can respond to requests when we have other items available on our shelves. Two of the items most often requested are baby diapers and toilet paper. We also give away hotel samples of soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors, combs, etc. Other items occasionally requested are feminine products and household cleaning supplies. If you are willing to donate any of these items, we will gladly share them with our neighbors in need. Thank you for your generosity.
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 Jane Ann Toney Carico will be our WOW speaker next week. Jane Ann is the representative for Celebrate Recovery in our part of Tennessee. She will tell us about different ways that faith-based organizations can become involved in helping to heal those impacted by the drug epidemic that has so heavily impacted our area. Menu: Meat Loaf, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, Rolls, Fruit Salad, and Cupcakes.
Communion October 7, 2018
If you or anyone you know is unable to attend the Worship Service, but would like to receive Communion the afternoon of Otcober 7, please contact the Church Office at 247-5121.
Here's how to hurdle the obstacles standing between you and getting in shape. "I'm too tired to exercise." Being too tired to work out is a common theme among procrastinators. And while it sounds counter-intuitive, exercise gives you more energy -- it feeds on itself in a good way. Researchers at the University of Georgia found that healthy but sedentary adults who did as little as 20 minutes of low-to-moderate cardio (think brisk walking) three days a week felt more energized after just a few weeks. "I don't have time to exercise." Who doesn't feel squeezed by a busy schedule? And yes, driving back and forth to the gym can double the time you need to allot to a workout. So skip the trip and invest in home equipment. But still can't find a 30-minute block of time? Break up your workout into a few short segments a day. Steal 10 to 15 minutes before the kids wake up and another 15 after they go to sleep. "I'm too out of shape to exercise." Being out of shape is no reason to sit on the sidelines and stay out of shape. Fitness can start with just one step. If you're unhappy with your appearance, work out at home at first or invest in exercise clothes that flatter you. Set small, realistic goals that you can build on. Begin with 5 minutes of walking and focus on the present, not the 30 minutes you hope to accomplish. Praise yourself for getting started, rather than berate yourself for not having Olympic fitness status. Keep the momentum going by rewarding yourself with fitness-related items such as a high-tech monitor or watch or new exercise clothes as your size decreases. Copyright © 2018 HealthDay.

Peace & Global Witness Offering is Oct. 7 October 7 is World Communion Sunday, and as is our tradition, we will be collecting one of four annual special Presbyterian offerings. It’s the Peace & Global Witness Offering. One-fourth of this offering stays within our congregation to support our missions; one-fourth will be joined with other congregations in our region; and half will support peace and reconciliation being done by Presbyterians across the globe. Peace…when you hear that word, you may feel a calm, a sense that true peace would mean everything is right in the world, that God is having His way. Unfortunately, that feeling is fleeting because, as we know, everything is not right in our world, far from it. But what can we do about it? It’s hard to see as individuals how we can make much an effort toward world peace. But by pooling our resources, we can help make a difference. Here are two examples: Presbyterian Pastor Jon Brown was distraught to the point of numbness that weekend in August 2017 when racial violence in Charlottesville, Va., shocked and scared us all. But on the following Monday, his hope was renewed when he saw dozens of elementary school-aged children who had gathered for Peace Camp, where among other things, they learned how to handle angry and sad feelings and talked about what is needed for a good neighborhood. Those resources for that camp were provided by this offering. And far away in Nigeria, Princeton, a carefree 13-year-old boy, was snatched by soldiers as he was going to fetch water for his mother. After forced military training, he was carrying a gun in the civil war…just 2 weeks later. He came home at age 17—after suffering physical and emotional injuries that left him understandably angry and rebellious. Eventually, to quote his thankful mother, “God changed a heart of stone to a heart of flesh.” Princeton became a Christian and today he is pastor of a Presbyterian church in Texas. The Peace & Global Witness Offering supports work with the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations to bring an end to the plight of child soldiers…and fights anti-trafficking work related to forced labor and sex trafficking. Journalist Walker Knight said, “Peace is active, not passive; peace is doing, not waiting…peace like war, is waged.” Your Mission Committee asks you to prayerfully consider a gift to the Peace & Global Witness Offering next week. Together with people around the world, we can do a lot. Let’s wage some peace!

Great memories! Hot Dog Mummies
This recipe is super simple and a great idea for kids to make to start to learn how to cook!"
"An easy-to-puttogether dessert dip that is perfect for a Halloween party or fun snack. The pretzels look like broomsticks after they've been dunked into this yummy, crunch dip."
Ingredients * 1 cup smooth peanut butter * 1 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (such as Nutella®) * 1/2 cup oatmeal cereal squares (such as Quaker® Oatmeal Squares), crushed * 1 (16 ounce) bag small pretzel rods
Directions Stir peanut butter and chocolate-hazelnut spread together in a bowl; transfer dip to a serving bowl. Sprinkle crushed cereal squares over dip. Dip pretzel rods into dip to make 'broomsticks'. Allrecipes.com
Ingredients * 8 hot dogs * 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls (such as Pillsbury® Grands! Big and Flaky)
Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place hot dogs in a saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until warmed through, about 5 minutes. Drain. Roll crescent dough onto a work surface; tear into 8 pieces. Roll 1 piece dough around each hot dog, creating the look of a mummy. Place dots of mustard on the top of each for the eyes, nose, and mouth. Arrange hot dogs on a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until crescent dough is golden brown and flaky, about 10 minutes.
