Calling all Bakers! World Communion Sunday is Sunday, October 2. During worship, we will celebrate Holy Communion not just at SCAPC, but with Christians all around the world. To help us visualize this great feast, we need all kinds of bread: French baguettes, dark ryes, round sourdoughs, braided challah bread, flat breads like tortillas, pitas, naan, etc. We want our communion table to represent the great global Body of Christ. To contribute bread, please contact Sarah Chancellor-Watson,

Program of Hope Homeless Ministry: Clothing and toiletries are needed for the Program of Hope homeless ministry housed at First Presbyterian Church. During September, SCAPC provides lunch and volunteers to serve over 100 homeless every Wednesday morning. New people come constantly, and they especially need men’s clothing. Also needed are toiletries such as deodorant and lotion, and clothing for women and children. Please bring donations to the homeless ministry basket in Frampton Fellowship Hall.
