Summer Office Hours

Just a friendly reminder that from July 4th through Labor day the Church Office will be running on a summer schedule.

Summer Hours will be:

Sunday - Thursday 9am to 12pm.

Have a wonderful Summer!

Backpack Collection

We will once again be collecting backpacks and supplies for children in need over the summer months.

There is a collection bin in the narthex, and the Community Care Team asks all of us to put this on our radar as the sales on back-to-school supplies begin. Those of you with school age children might want to involve them as you make choices. We expect the need to collect for about 20 children. More information to follow as it becomes available.

This collection will conclude August 11th. Thank you.

Kitchen Containers Needed

The God Care team is looking for clean take-out containers as they are needed for the kitchen leftovers. 

If you have empty containers that you can donate to the church, please let Diana Drachenberg or Marilyn Ronewicz know or bring them in on Sunday morning.

Thank you.

Calling All Knitters!!

The Community Care Team is asking all knitters to pick up their needles and hooks because our supply of Prayer Shawls is getting low.

Any completed shawls can be placed in the basket in the Outer Office when completed and will be blessed during a Church Service at a later date.

Thank you in advance for your contribution!

Save Our Steeple
