Coffee Hour Hosts

Coffee Hour Hosts



Schabergs serve coffee

Kitchen Help is Always Appreciated!
If it is NOT your day to do coffee, but you see where you can step in and help those in the kitchen, please do just that!

celebrating 50 years

If you would like to volunteer to host an available (hosts needed) coffee hour, please contact the church secretary.

It is a good idea to call your co-host (if you have one) a week or so in advance to be sure you are both able to prepare and serve on your scheduled day. If you are unable to do so, please find someone to take your place. It is usually easiest to call someone on the list in the next week or two and simply switch Sundays with them. If there is a change in your assigned day, please find a replacement and then contact Cindy (our secretary)  phone: 265-3494 or email: ), so she can update the list and put the correct names in the Sunday worship bulletin. If you are unable to find a replacement, please notify Cindy, the church secretary, at 265-9434 or Nicole Gendron, at (315) 328-5188 or email: Thank you for taking the time to host coffee hour.

If you are new to hosting, or don't know how to use the coffee machine, or just need to refresh your memory to what you need to do, please refer to the COFFEE HOUR HOST INSTRUCTIONS.


Fair Trade Coffee and Tea

When you drink coffee or tea at Potsdam Presbyterian, you are participating in the Mission work of our church. We purchase Fair Trade coffee and tea as part of the Presbyterian (PCUSA) Coffee Project. The business practices of Equal Exchange enable small-scale farmers across the world to earn a fair price for their products, have access to affordable credit, and invest in education, health care, and sustainable agriculture, building a better future for their communities.

Now, Our Purchases Count Twice

Equal Exchange has expanded their good works. In addition to supporting long-term committed relationships with small-scale coffee farmers around the world, they have chosen12 related projects to fund. One project was chosen for each denomination that participates in the coffee project. For the PCUSA, our purchases help to fund The Road to Life Yard-Papaye, an organization that supports integrated sustainable agricultural development program in Haiti. Their projects promote organic farming and maintaining the growth of trees.

Please continue to support the purchase of Fair Trade beverages!
