Claire’s Army returns to the Kerr Building on May 19. Tickets cost $20 each, and a table for six is $120. See or call Millie Mullis at 704-545-5313 or Pam Jack at 704-882-0461 to reserve your table or your seat for this event. Breakfast will include chocolate chip (Claire’s favorite) and plain pancakes, fresh fruit, a variety of biscuits and muffins. Coffee, orange juice and milk will be served at theme decorated tables that will delight any age. Claire’s Army was inspired by 2-year-old Claire Ratliff’s battle against Neuroblastoma. During treatment her family received support from friends, family and strangers for which they are forever grateful. Although Claire received the ultimate cure and gained her angel wings, her fight inspired thousands of people and her legacy lives on through Claire’s Army. A Teacup Raffle follows breakfast with tickets selling for $1, seven for $5, and an arm’s length for $10. There will be a wide array of great prizes. Kristen Miranda, morning news editor at WBTV Charlotte will again serve as Mistress of Ceremonies. Entertainment will also be part of the program. Claire’s Army strives to act as God’s hand and feet with support for families fighting childhood cancer. Claire’s Army is endorsed by Novant/Hemby Childrens Center and is a recognized 501(c) corporation. We hope to see you all there for this fabulous event.
Please note: May 12 is the deadline for money to be turned in along with the names of sponsors and guests and the theme for your table. To sponsor and decorate a table for 6 is $120. To sponsor a table but not decorate it or furnish table favors is $150.
Be the Hands and Feet of Jesus, sign up to serve our Room in the Inn ministry today!
PPC will host twelve homeless neighbors each Wednesday night from December to March and it takes a lot of volunteers each year to make this happen. If your small group, Sunday School class or ministry team would like to host a week (or two!) please sign up on a date on the blue poster outside of the office. If you are not currently part of a PPC group and would like to serve, WE NEED YOU! This ministry is a great way to meet people and serve others! Please also sign up on the blue poster and you will be contacted to volunteer.
We will also be collecting men and women’s underwear, undershirts, and socks to re-stock our closet for the season and donate to our Room in the Inn neighbors. Please donate NEW undergarments in the size you wear in The Room in the Inn box outside the office. We would like to collect these items by December 1st.
The Seekers Sunday School Class as a mission project has set up a Little Free Library near the parking lot in front of the admin/education building. This spot was chosen because of it's visibility from Bain School Road. Anyone in the community can come to the PPC Little Free Library and they are free to take a book to keep or return it. LittleFreeLibrary.org
The Seekers also installed a PPC Rocks Kindness Rock garden near the Little Free Library. The concept is to have several colorfully painted rocks in the garden. The goal is to include encouragement on these rocks and on the bottom, you'll see a "PPC ROCKS". The idea is to get a rock and leave it for someone to find. Our rock garden will be mapped on the Kindness Rocks Project website. Check out the Kindness Rocks Project facebook page.
The Prayer Shawl Ministry, sponsored by the Stephen Ministers, constructs and delivers prayer shawls to individuals who are experiencing major life events and who would benefit from knowing others have been and will continue to pray for them. The recipients are not limited to PPC members; however, distribution is controlled to prevent multiple shawls from being presented to the same recipient.
If you think someone is in need of a shawl, contact any Stephen Minister, Deacon, pastor, or the Prayer Shawl Ministry members.
