PCO now offers online giving. The Presbyterian Church of Okemos, like any institution, requires financial support to continue our mission. This support comes entirely from members and friends who have historically been amazingly generous. With the option of online giving, we are hoping we can make giving easier and help the church avoid seasonal cash flow fluctuations when people are unable to attend worship. Please thoughtfully consider your financial commitment to the church. You can set up a one-time or recurring donation using your checking account or savings account. By clicking the link below, you can create an account so that we can properly recognize your gift. This will also allow you to access your records or make adjustments. When you click the link below, a page will load that will allow you to register, (or log in if you have already registered) and will allow you to set up your contribution. We hope you find this option useful. If you need help with registering or making a donation, feel free to contact Doug Paterson and he will walk you through it. (Doug’s contact information is in the Church Directory.) When you click the link, a page will load with a simple gray and white form. The donation URL is hosted by www.eservicepayments.com.

Advent House Meal Preparation
The Presbyterian Church of Okemos expects to commit to some dates in 2018 for preparing and serving at Advent House. If you are interested in helping, contact Bill Given.
Here’s a site that has a good variety of recipes for feeding 100+ folks (the pulled pork and the taco bar [with ground beef] caught my attention–other recipes could work as well):
Volunteer meal providers usually provide the entree, including meat, potatoes/rice/pasta, and vegetable (salad is not big with the group but I’ve seen folks enjoy it with ranch dressing and Parmesan cheese); dessert is always popular and engages the bakers among your volunteers. Keep in mind that many folks have dental problems, so it’s best to avoid food that is hard to bite or chew. We have those among our guests who are diabetic and have really appreciated when there is a sugar-free dessert option.
