On August 13 at 10:45 a.m., hear how First Presbyterian Church participates as a member of the larger “connectional” church.
A Koinonia Coffee will be held at 10:45 a.m. following the service to better understand this relationship.

The Rev. Dr. Barbara Wilson, Director for Collaboration and Community Partnerships of the Chicago Presbytery will talk with us about our shared ministry in outreach with the Presbytery.
Gardeners! Have you been to our FPC Giving Garden? The weeds are gone and the produce is ready! If you have 5 minutes, or an hour or two, come over to the garden on Madison Street.
Bring gallon or two gallon baggies and harvest away. Everything picked goes to the People’s Resource Center, 201 S Naperville Rd, just north of the tracks in Wheaton.

Feed My Starving Children
Saturday, August 5th from 2:00-4:00 p.m., First Pres will be packing meals for Feed My Starving Children in Aurora. We hope you
can join us! Anyone five and older is welcome to pack! If you are interested in signing up, contact Megan Zorn

Both food pantries continue to seek personal care items like toothpaste, hand soap, shampoo and conditioner, and women's personal products.
Interfaith is happy with whatever food we collect. PRC needs nutritional cereal, peanut butter, 2- 4T diapers and pull-up diapers size 5 & 6.
These items will be our July focus, however, as always whatever the congregation brings in is never turned away!

The first request is for backpacks to carry school needs. The second is for school supplies. A list of the required supplies is available at the information desk. We will have boxes for your contributions in the rotunda. If you have questions, contact Gwen Henry

Amall Great Things
by Joki Picoult
“Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital. During her shift,
Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she’s been reassigned to another patient.
The parents are white supremacists and don’t want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request,
but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene?”
Grab this book, sit back and enjoy this page turner.
