Heritage Homecoming – Sunday, June 11, 2017

On Sunday, June 11, 2017, we will be celebrating the past, the present and taking a look toward the future of First Presbyterian Church of Yellville! It will be a wonderful day!

We’ll begin with a special worship service and then enjoy great fellowship and a wonderful meal together. We’ll share memories of the long ago past, the not so long ago past, and our hopes and dreams for the future.

We are all an important part of this celebration. Be thinking of a special “church moment” you might want to share with your church family!

JOY Group

Our June Joy Group outing will be Tuesday, June 20th to the Hard Luck Café in Branson. They have a singing wait staff that will serenade us with Gospel, Pop, and Country favorites while we dine. The menu includes sandwiches, lunch specials and ice cream. Beware of the size of the sundaes!)

We will meet at the church to carpool and plan to leave at 10:00 AM. Of course shopping may occur!

9th Annual Dinner Theater & Silent Auction: Saturday, July 29th

July 29th will be here before you know it, and time for our 9th annual Dinner Theater and Silent Auction.

This year our entertainment will be “Praise Hymn”, an Adult Mixed Vocal Ensemble from St. Louis. MO. They sing different styles of music, mostly Sacred with piano accompaniment. Tickets will go on sale June 18th. Prices are $18.00 for adults and $8.00 for children under 12.

You may bring your Silent Auction items to the church anytime July 1 - July 26. Handmade items go quickly, as well as goodies from the kitchen and gardens. It would be great to have some children's items too! If you have any questions, please see Nellie Yount or Jeri Hulgan.

Silent auction bidding begins at 5:30 - Dinner served at 6:00 - Entertainment begins at 7:00

This year the proceeds will be going to "THE CALL". “THE CALL” is recruiting, training and supporting families from local churches to open their homes to foster care or adoption. This is done in close cooperation with the Arkansas Division of Children and Family Services at both state and local levels. Since 2007, “THE CALL” has recruited more than 1,000 Christian families to serve children in foster care. All this has been at no charge to the families because the cost should never be an obstacle to families called to serve God's precious children in foster care. “THE CALL” is a non-profit, funded by contributions from individual donors, churches, foundations and corporations.
