Cajun Shrimp Boil, a First Presbyterian Tradition.
The 24rd annual Shrimp Boil to help fund the caroling party in December will be held on Friday, August 8th, 2014. As with the last several years, the Shrimp Boil will be held at the Scheide’s, 20 Cedar Drive.
John Scheide and crew will be cooking up those ACE (All you Can Eat) shrimp, corn, potatoes and onions. Volunteer helpers are welcome! Fellowship time will be between 5:30 – 6:30pm with the dinner at 6:30pm. The price will be $13.00 for the adult shrimp dinner and $ 6.00 for the child’s shrimp meal. Pulled pork barbeque will be served for adults and kids that are non-shrimpers, $6.00 and $3.00 respectively. Other dietary requests can be accommodated if noted in advance.

A WORD FROM PASTOR ANDREW
I would like to start off by thanking all the participants of Vacation Bible School especially those how helped in a volunteer role or making a donation of some kind. Thank you for your service and support this week.
If you are able please help “Stuff the Bus”. First Presbyterian Church (FPC) along with others in the community have partnered with the United Way to collect school supplies. FPC is a designated drop off for the school supplies that will be divided between all the elementary schools of Isabella County. Supplies will be collect from the church by the United Way on August 17. Please help our teachers and students!
I hope that you can make it to worship on Sunday. I will be on vacation with my family however, the Rev. Noel Snyder, Chaplain at Alma College will be preaching. The sermon will be based on Psalm 145. A reflection question as you prepare for worship this week is: How do you join your voice with all that God has made? Following worship there will be a time of fellowship with refreshments. All are welcome!
Have a great week and do not forget to sign-up for the Cajun Shrimp Boil by Wednesday, August 6th that will be at the home of the Scheide’s on Friday, August 8th begin with fellowship at 5:30PM.
