Projects! We have projects. We invite your ideas and conversation in designing/ repairing/constructing the front sign on the street and shelving in the large classroom. The Property Committee wants to talk about it: Tuesday, August 1st, 6:30  pm.  But you can also help construct when the time comes without coming to the meeting.

Operation Christmas Child As you are reading this, the last of the more than 11 million shoeboxes packed in 2016 are being distributed in various parts of the world.  Did you know that some shoeboxes have even been delivered to the children of scientists based in Antarctica?  A shoebox gift has the potential of making a huge impact on a child’s life no matter which continent is its destination!  Each shoebox is delivered with a message that tells the recipient that he or she is loved beyond measure.

Including school supplies in our shoeboxes does more than encourage children to do well in school.  In many countries, when a child’s parents cannot afford to provide pencils and paper, he or she is not allowed to attend classes.  The few basic supplies we pack in our boxes may make it possible for a child to attend school!  The summer months are the BEST time for us to purchase school supplies for our packing party.  Please see the pledge sheet in the foyer to indicate your support.  THANK YOU!

Pray that the shoebox gifts already delivered and those that will be packed in 2017 will serve as keys to open the doors to God’s kingdom!

Consistory: Elders: Susan Pendergast, Kim Smith, Joan Youmans. Deacon: Mary Lou Ryan
