We call ourselves a ―Lectionary Study Group,‖ but we work at whatever texts or topics members
are preaching on, Lectionary or otherwise.Of course we concentrate on the texts first, then ways to develop the texts, and we spend a good deal of effort working on preaching strategies
how to connect with Pip, the Person in the Pew. We have a passion forproclaiming the Word. We find creativity in sharing and engaging in discussion with other minds, and inconsulting with other members of the Body of Christ. We have been meeting for seventeen years.

If you know a woman undergoing chemotherapy, there is acleaning service that provides free housecleaning. All shehas to do is sign up and have her doctor fax a note
confirming treatment. “Cleaning for a Reason” will have a
participating service arrange for her home cleaning. Thisservice covers the entire USA and there are at least threeparticipating service providers in Wood County. Go towww.cleaningforareason.org
This year's game has to do with, where we put our handbag/purse the momentwe get home. For example "I like it on the couch", "kitchen counter", "thedresser" well you get the idea. Just put your answer as your status with nothingmore than that and cut n paste this message and forward to all your FB femalefriends to their inbox. It doesn't have to be suggestive.The bra game made it to the news. Let's see how powerful we women reallyare!!!
Whenever viable, our volunteer staff will repair, refurbish, and properlyprepare donated computers for placement, free of charge, to non-profitorganizations. We also provide vouchers to charities so they can send clientsdirectly to us for computer placement.Sometimes a non-profit will just need some PCs whereas others may needcabling, custom or off-the-shelf software, training, help in setting up acomputer lab, technical advice and so on. Often, they have no idea what they want or need and we try to helpthem determine that. The Computers for Charity volunteers try to meet as many of these needs as we can. Asvolunteers relying on donated equipment and limited resources this is not always possible. But we give it ourbest effort and assist them as much as possible.Computers for Charity serves as a place where people from the non-profits (as well as students and othermembers of the community) can come and learn how to build, troubleshoot and repair PCs as well as gain othercomputer knowledge.
Christmas time
is fast approaching and we are
looking to host another ―Computers for Christmas‖ program.
At this time we do not have the types of donation needed tofulfill this.
It is imperative for all of you who care aboutour mission to get the word out to your places of employment and businesses in the community.
We can helpthem to clean up that computer clutter that may be left overfrom a recent upgrade, and provide them with a tax deductionwhile helping those in need. Go to
 for information.
