PPC Playground Workday

Saturday, February 29 at 9am

The new and improved PPC playground is getting closer to reality, but we need your help to make it happen!! 

  • We need “music makers” for the music station. 
    • Ideas: pots or pans and lids/shaped jello molds/wooden spoons/metal spoons/muffin tins/bundt pans/metal buckets or trash cans/wash boards/drying rack/anything that you think would make great sounds – use your imagination and the kids will use their’s! 
    • Drop off at PPC by Feb 29.
  • We invite you to make financial donations “over and above” what you’ve planned to give to the church this year.
    • This will help with additional expenses beyond the wood which include fastener hardware, concrete mix, and other materials to complete our vision of this playground. 
    • Make checks payable to Pittsboro Presbyterian with memo “capital funding”.  (It will be used for other capital projects this year if funds exceed expenses.) We will keep you updated with this project’s costs and progress!
  • We need volunteers to help assemble everything.
    • Saturday, February 29 at 9am (Rain/bad weather date is March 7). 

Lastly, we’ll need people of all ages to try it out! The playground will have two crawl tunnels, a bar climb, tether ball, a balance beam, a chalk board, two bean bag tosses (also known as corn hole), and a music station!

GriefShare Support Group

Mondays 6-8pm

January 6 – March 30 (first 13-week cycle)

(You are welcome to begin attending our GriefShare group at any point. Each session is “self-contained”, so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will be able to pick up any sessions you missed in our next 13-week cycle.)

Pittsboro Presbyterian Church (PPC), with support from Chatham UMC, will be hosting GriefShare starting in January.  GriefShare is a special help seminar and support group for those who have lost loved ones recently or many years ago and are also great for teaching people how to care for others who are grieving. Each session includes a short video, discussion for those wanting to share and a journal they can take home to reflect on various aspects of grief. Our experienced leaders welcome everyone into this safe, nurturing place where hope, compassion and understanding can be found in the midst of pain. Although this is a Christian-based program, people from all perspectives will find a lot of helpful material and support.

Location: 95 East Street, Pittsboro (across from Hardees). You may park on the street or in our gravel lot which connects to our small driveway to the left of the church which has spaces for those who cannot walk as far. Come in PPC’s left side entrance or the door or one of the middle front doors to reach our adult classroom for each session. 

Cost: One-time registration fee of $20. Scholarships are available. 

*No prior registration. Bring your fee to the first session.

*No childcare provided.

Kids Fun Nights

Feb. 13, Mar. 12, Apr. 9, May 14

Every second Thursday of the month, we will be hosting Kids Fun Nights from 6-8pm at Pittsboro Presbyterian Church, 95 E. Street. These events are free and include crafts, coloring activities and G-rated movies young people can watch in a relaxed setting with snacks. They are geared towards small kids, preschoolers, and elementary-aged children and are a great way for parents who work during the day to get to know other families of young children during a fun mid-week activity. Children must come with an adult who stays with them until the child leaves. Two vetted and trained adults from the church will help set up, facilitate, and clean up with these events.

(or even read it?!) Come anyway and enjoy the fellowship, conversation and intellectual stimulation. Have a book you’ve read that you’d love to discuss? Come and propose it to the group!
