Installation Service will occur sometime in July, not June as previously announced.  Marty Neal has indicated that he would like to get settled into the church and the manse prior to his Installation Service.  Currently he is concentrating on the Ordination Service and program.  Once a date has been determined, we will communicate that date and time to everyone. 

The gymnasium in Todd Manor Hall receives a great deal of use from members of our community, providing a wonderful service and generating extra income for our church.  Many of the lights in the gym ceiling are broken and beyond repair. A fund is being set up to collect monies to replace the old lighting with more economical and practical lights.  If you wish to donate, please designate "gym light fund" on your check or one of the pew envelopes. Thank you!

Presbyterian Men's Group- The Men are still collecting aluminum cans for recycling.  Calling all men of the church to be a part of this group!  If interested please contact Doug Bartosh or contact the church office.  

Printer cartridges are being collected to turn in at Staples for a $2.00 credit to be used for office supplies.  A box will be under the table by the door in the back of the church. 

FOOD BANK NEEDS YOUR HELP: The Ford City Food Bank needs help with unloading and storing food on the last Tuesday of each month.  Help is needed for approximately an hour starting at 7:30 a.m. at Ford Memorial Methodist Church.  Please help if you can. Also, the Food Bank needs volunteers with pickup trucks to help go collect the food for the food bank.  This is done on the last Wednesday of the month. If you are able to help please contact Grace Woodside or Paul Kovacik. 

Building Repair Fund Day will be held the first Sunday of every month.  "Special Building Fund Day" envelopes are at the church for your donation.  Thank you for supporting our Building Fund. 

Quilters are needed, so if you would like to have a Wednesday out from 8:30 to 1 p.m., bring your lunch, a thimble that fits your middle finger, and have fun quilting!  At least three more quilters are needed.  Please call Karen Buzard at 724-763-8798
