What’s New

Salvation Army Food Bank Day is Sunday, November 3, 2019! Thanksgiving is just around the corner! When you donate, consider sharing some of your Thanksgiving favorites like cranberry sauce, green bean casserole fixings, and sweet potatoes but don’t forget peanut butter and jelly, power bars, tuna fish, dried apple fruit slices or crisps along with other canned vegetables, and food items. The MVPC congregation continues to be generous by giving to those in need.
 
Through the Peace and Global Witness Offering congregations are encouraged and equipped to find and address the anxiety and discord that is prevalent throughout this broken and sinful world. This offering is used both locally and globally to educate and witness to peace and justice through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Twenty-five percent of the offering will be retained by our congregation to carry out works of peace and justice in our church and community. Twenty-five percent will be used by the Presbytery and Synod and fifty percent will be used by our denomination for global education and witness programs for peace. We invite you to give generously to this special offering. Envelopes will be in the Pews.

Ongoing Programs

 

Salvation Army Food Collection
On the first Sunday of each month, non-perishable food items are collected for the Salvation Army Food Bank.
 
Eyeglasses
Old eyeglasses are given to a local optometrist who re-fits them to provide free glasses to school children.
 
Clothing Collection 
The committee also has initiated an ongoing collection program for gently-used clothing, shoes, household items, books and toys. The box will be located in Fellowship Hall and the donated goods will be taken on a weekly basis to Westminster Presbyterian Church, to be distributed during their food bank days. If you are interested in helping us coordinate this, please contact Tami Samek tami@mviewpc.org  or 702-341-7800 and she will forward your name to us.
