Grapevine August 2017

Pastor's Desk Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Can we really be starting August already! Fair time again for our children, and they are dreaming of successful endeavors. Garden fare has been particularly delicious whether it has been from the local Framer’s Market or our home gardens. The rain has been a little annoying, but the ground is rich and fertile and life is teeming. We have had two of our three concerts. They were not attended by droves, but a great time was had by all and the music was outstanding. We had a wonderful Pet Blessing service for our non human friends. This year we had kittens, dogs, and crabs and the weather was beautiful for the celebration. I am in the office on Wednesday mornings until seminary begins again in the fall. Of course, I am always available other times with just a phone call to 740-541-0928. Mark your calendars for the outdoor service at the Gregg farm on August 27th. It will be a special day as we baptize Anthony and Joey Torres into a deeper sense of service to God. The words, “Go and rest ye awhile,” never resound as spiritual and fulfilling as it does through the connection with nature we experience in services which immerse us in nature. God smiles, and peace seems a probability instead of only a vague possibility in our troubled world. I encourage you all to come to the Farmer’s Market on Thursdays from 4-7 pm. I have been playing music in the gazebo to add a little fun and I believe there may be a group or two entertaining as the season progresses. Come out and enjoy visiting with your neighbors. The annual Night Out on August 1st, another concert on August 17th or 18th (To be determined) and the Night out are all chances to connect with our brothers and sisters. And bring a stranger, a friend, a neighbor, or a relative to church with you. Let this house be open, warm, and inviting to all who wish to come and eat at the welcome table. Peace, Pastor Christine Burns

Communion Schedule

By: Pastor Christine Burns

Because we want the Lord’s Supper to be a celebration of the joyful feast of the people of God, the Table will now be set on special days recognized by the universal church, as well as other special services such as baptisms, ordinations, or weddings when requested. The scheduled days: August 13, 2017 - Young Adult Sunday October 1, 2017 - World Communion Sunday November 26, 2017 - Christ the King December 24, 2017 - Christmas Eve The session and I thank you for your continued support. Your open attitudes and suggestions help to promote meaningful worship and further the mission of the church.

Interchurch I have recently learned that Knox County Interchurch Social Services will not be receiving school vouchers this year. Last year vouchers were provided for $35 towards school supplies and $75 towards clothing to each school age child in Fredericktown school district whose family met the PRC application requirements. Without this assistance, many children will not have all the supplies needed for the school year. Fredericktown Interchurch is on a mission to raise funds for school supplies by asking each local church to donate at least $100 towards this mission. Money will be used to go on a Back to School shopping spree with the help of volunteers (including teachers). Money will need to be given to Interchurch by August 1st in order to have the supplies in the classrooms before the Back to School open house. Please feel free to contact me with questions, Katie Frazier Fredericktown Interchurch Branch Manager 740-694-8110 [email protected]

On July 19th, Pastor Christine and Cindy Bouton on behalf of Fredericktown First Presbyterian Church, presented Katie Frazier, Interchurch Branch Manager, a check for $1,000 to help with community youth, youth lunches and school supplies

Cook's Corner


Kentucky Butter Cake

Ingredients: Cake 1 cup Land O Lakes butter, cubed at room temperature 2 cups Domino granulated sugar 4 Eggland’s Best eggs 1 tablespoon McCormick vanilla 3 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon Morton Kosher salt 1 teaspoon Clabber Girl baking powder ½ teaspoon Clabber Girl baking soda 1 cup buttermilk Butter Glaze ⅓ cup Land O Lakes butter ¾ cup Domino Granulated sugar 2 tablespoons water 2 teaspoons McCormick vanilla


Impress all who sit at your table with this incredibly moist and mystifying Kentucky Butter Cake! Your tongue has never tasted anything quite so light, airy, and sweet.

Preheat the oven to 325°F/165°C Grease a 10″ bundt pan with butter or shortening very liberally. Dust the pan with flour and set aside. Place all the cake ingredients in the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low for 30 seconds and then increase the speed to medium and mix for 3 minutes. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 65-75 minutes until a toothpick entered into the center comes out clean. When the cake is done make the glaze. Combine all ingredients into a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir continuously until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved. Do not bring to a boil. Poke holes all over the warm cake using a knife and pour the glaze evenly on the cake while still in the pan. Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan and then invert the cake onto a serving plate. I actually like to make this cake a day in advance, finding it to be more moist and flavorful when it rests overnight.

“This Kentucky Butter Cake is CRAZY moist, buttery and coated with a sweet buttery sauce that crusts the outside and soaks into the cake making it amazing for days. What you get is a stunning, sweet, buttery, soft cake that is as perfect on its own as it is topped with strawberries and whipped cream!”
