As part of Southport’s July 4 celebration SPC will be participating in a Children’s Activity Celebration July 3 from noon – 2 pm on the Southport waterfront Garrison Lawn. Our church is sponsoring an activity table where children can make patriotic sun catchers. Volunteers are needed to set up and staff the table. If you would like to help, please contact Judy Wetzig at firstname.lastname@example.org or 910-444-1324. We hope to share our church activity with an expected 200-300 children.
Children, ages 4 yrs. – fifth grade are invited to an exciting castle adventure, June 12 – 16, 5:30 – 7:30 pm at Southport Presbyterian Church. The evening vacation bible school will include a “kid friendly” dinner. Advance registration is requested.
To register go to https://southport-presbyterian-church.mycokesburyvbs.com/.
The week-long adventure, “Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armor,” invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of God’s power by exploring how we put on the armor of God. However, the armor isn’t what they think it is. In this hidden frozen land kids will take on the role of brave Knights and begin their quest each session by opening the King’s Book. They’ll explore Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor—the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation. They will learn how this armor was at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God.
Southport Presbyterian Church is located at 1025 East Moore Street, Southport, “on the way to the ferry.” For more information contact email@example.com or 908-894-0868.

Don’t forget to bring your basket to gather your eggs! We are hoping to be outside, but if the weather doesn’t cooperate we will move indoors, so masks are recommended.
The Amazing Story of Christmas will be presented by our children on the second Sunday of Advent, December 5, at our 11:00 am worship service. Mark your calendars and join us for this special service as we hear the story of Jesus’s birth told by our younger disciples, and enjoy the music of the season!
It is almost time for the Super Bowl! As we celebrate with food and festivities, watching the game along with a halftime show, it is good to remember ways we can make a difference in our community. Souper Bowl of Caring is a youth-inspired movement working across the nation to tackle hunger in our local communities. Mobilizing grassroots resources including churches, schools, civic groups and caring individuals, the Souper Bowl of Caring movement (for over 30 years) has created over $160 million worth of support that stays completely local. The need is so great this year with over 14 billion meals needed to feed food-insecure neighbors in our country!
On Sunday, February 7, we will collect an offering for Souper Bowl. You can write in the note of your checks that it is for “Souper Bowl” and you can also give online under “Special Offerings.” Put in the comment/note section: Souper Bowl of Caring. The funds will go to support those who are food insecure in our local community.
The Fellowship & Welcome Committee will also use Zoom to have a “Soupless Bowl” following our Service on Sunday, February 7th. There is a lot to talk about. An “old” 43-year-old quarterback, Tom Brady versus the young 25-year-old Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City vs Tampa Bay, the Midwest vs the Southeast…
So, put your favorite pot of soup on the stove! Wear the colors of the team you support! If you are interested in some lively conversation with friends you haven’t seen in a while, please remain on Zoom following the service. Associate Pastor Joanna Hipp will do her magic and move us into meeting/breakout rooms. We will have questions to stir up the conversation. While we can’t serve soup over the internet (at least not yet), you are welcome to make your own. We on the Fellowship & Welcome Committee hope you all doing well. We hope to see y’all on Sunday, February 7th.
