Shawnee Presbyterian Church

     

 

Welcome

We all need HUGS!!!

Each one of us appreciates the warm touch of another person. Each Fall our congregation takes this in an exciting direction as we collect H.U.G.S. to be shared with those around us who don’t have them. H.U.G.S stands for Hats – Underwear – Gloves – Socks. Again things none of us want to think about not having enough of. We will dedicate this collection and offering on September 30, but the collecting will begin now. All donated HUGS need to be new.

The most common question for this collection is what size to buy. Buying for children and youth is always good and the community centers are needing these items for all ages. If you find a sale or clearance whatever is on that shelf is perfect for this cause. Remember too adults are in need of HUGS. In many homes the mothers and fathers place their children’s needs before their own. When this happens new undergarments are not high on the list of essential purchases. Sizes for adults are also wide ranging as each of us is made so differently. We wouldn’t turn away HUGS for our senior citizens either. So many of the older adults in our community do not have access to warmth or basic comforts as they worry every day about their basic bills.

The goal of this collection is not to fix or completely cloth any certain community or group, but to show love through warmth and comfort with many items each of us likely take for granted. Every winter I watch as the children go to and from Nieman Elementary School often without as much covering and warm clothes as I would suggest. Many of these young people chose not to wear what they were told and had available, but there are also those children who are clearly cold and shivering along their journey.

We collect HUGS to give HUGS. I encourage you to join in this collection as we strive to help provide a warm and comforting touch to those who need it.

this week...

  • Noisy Offering
    Sunday, September 23rd
    Can you drop a few extra coins in the ‘noisy offering’ this Sunday? The money will be added to the ‘Love Funds’ SPC established at SMNW High School and Hocker Grove Middle School. A new semester has begun affecting many of the families in our community with additional expenses. If you would like to support the ‘Love Funds’ but will not be at church on the 23rd, you can still make ‘noise’ by adding to the ‘love fund’ jar in the office.
