A rat named Remy dreams of becoming a great French chef despite his family’s wishes and the obvious problem of being a rat in a decidedly rodent-phobic profession. When fate places Remy in the sewers of Paris, he finds himself ideally situated beneath a restaurant made famous by his culinary hero, Auguste Gusteau. Despite the apparent dangers of being an unlikely — and certainly unwanted — visitor in the kitchen of a fine French restaurant, Remy’s passion for cooking soon sets into motion a hilarious and exciting rat race that turns the culinary world of Paris upside down. Remy finds himself torn between his calling and passion in life or returning forever to his previous existence as a rat. He learns the truth about friendship, family and having no choice but to be who he really is, a rat who wants to be a chef. Movie Synopsis courtesy of Fandango

First Presbyterian Participates in the AnySoldier.com Program which sends care packages to soldiers overseas.
We send to Army, Navy, Marine and Air Force units proportionately, depending upon how many units are registered in the program. We read the narrative information about the unit to determine how many members are in it, how many males vs. females, and what types of items they are asking for. We’ve done this program for about the last 15 years and it is a favorite in our congregation. The congregation members donate the items we will pack, mostly healthy snacks and individual size hygiene products, the donation of the contents and the enthusiasm to pack them is the easy part. We usually get enough donations to fill about 25 boxes, but 25 boxes x $18.90 means we need almost $500 to ship them. We include notes and Christmas cards. Sometimes we get emails back from the units that receive the boxes with a thank you but that isn’t necessarily expected.
