Memorial Presbyterian Church!
Memorial Church is a loving, caring community of God's people. Here, no one needs to face the burdens of life alone. As children of God, we join in a journey of faith with a full program of nurture to help you grow in God's grace.
Memorial Presbyterian Church is located on State Road 38 in Dayton, Indiana, just east of the Greater Lafayette area. The church is located one mile east of I-65, Exit 168. If you are new to our area, or are visiting Purdue University, or just happen to be passing through, we'd love to have you drop by!

We invite you to join us in sowing seeds of love in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord!
Plans are underway for Jubilee Christmas 2013 on December 14th!
Jubilee Christmas 2013 will be held on Saturday, December 14th at 1:00 P.M. Please mark your calendars! The congregation and friends of Memorial Presbyterian Church have always been very supportive of this unique mission event that allows hundreds of families with well over one thousand children from the Greater Lafayette community to have a more joyful Christmas experience. We are gearing up for Jubilee Christmas 2013, turning our basement into a Toy Shop, and fully anticipating yet another incredibly successful event that celebrates family and giving.
The tremendous success of this program is due to the generosity of our congregation and friends. Generous donations of time, money, toys, gifts and prayers are essential to a successful Jubilee day. Due to current economic conditions, many families find themselves seeking assistance for the first time. Our church will help by hosting 15 area families this holiday season. Your assistance is needed to ensure that Jubilee Christmas 2013 at Memorial Presbyterian Church is another great success.
Volunteers are needed as hosts/hostesses, shoppers, greeters, wrappers, set-up, clean up, etc. If you are available to help, a job is available for you (someone fluent in Spanish would be helpful). If you have not volunteered for Jubilee before, ample support and instructions will be provided in all areas. The rewards are worth your time and effort!
Please return the Jubilee_Christmas_2013_Volunteer_Form.doc to the church office or contact Jubilee Chair Cindy Bull at firstname.lastname@example.org
Donations of new toys for ages 0 - 12 are needed. Monetary donations are also needed to purchase gift certificates, food certificates, canned hams, additional food items and additional toys. If you wish to purchase toys, please check with Cindy for specific needs. The gift tag tree will be up by November 10th for you to pick your preference from.
Please be generous and timely in your giving and volunteering as we prepare for Jubilee Christmas 2013. Please keep Jubilee Christmas. the volunteers and the guest families in your prayers.
Thank you & God bless you & your loved ones during the upcoming holiday season & always!
The Aftermath of the November Tornado
Donations for Southwestern and Mintonye schools to be collected on Christmas Eve
Because the tornado damage to Southwestern Middle School left the building unstable, it has not been possible to move supplies from that building to the temporary quarters at Wea Ridge, as was done for Mintonye. TSC has allotted each teacher $200 to purchase supplies, but if you remember the reams of paper, boxes of kleenex, etc. that students were asked to bring in the fall, you know that this will not be enough.
TSC is updating the needs of the teachers and students at http://www.tsc.k12.in.us/index.cfm?newsid=3868&;pagetype=0&dir=3. They have received so many donations of paper, pencils, and other supplies, that what they are suggesting now is donations of cash and gift cards. If you are planning to attend the Christmas Eve service, please bring donations to the service. If you are unable to come Christmas Eve, you can drop them off ahead of time in the box in the parlor. Donations may also be taken to the TSC Administration Building, 21 Elston Road, Lafayette from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm.
