[Free Summer Meals for Kids Concerned about kids who are going hungry over the summer? I was impressed to discover sites available free in our county for children and teens 18 years of age and younger who can get food while school is out. Check it out at https://www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks .]
TIME AND TALENT We will present the Time and Talent commitments at worship on August 25, 2019. Prior to that date, they can be returned to the red box at the back of the nave or to the box outside the church office. We strongly encourage you to return the form even if you do not wish to make any changes in your activities. If we do not receive any response, we will assume that you do not desire any changes.
LWR SCHOOL KITS Help fill the backpacks for overseas children who, if not for the school kits, wouldn’t be able to attend school. Our goal this year is 50, an increase of 15 over last year. Check out the display in West Hall for needed items. Please try to match the items on display, as they are what is requested. Also, NO PENCILS, please. We have enough thanks to last year’s generous contributions!
