Needs: Specifically—cold cereal, rice or rice helpers, pasta, crackers, dry soup, and canned items, including soups, fruits, beans, baked beans, tomatoes, and tuna.
During the first three Sundays of each month, you have the opportunity to buy grocery cards in the office after service. You can buy cards for the following month and pick up the ones you ordered last month. Remember, the discount we earn from purchasing cards in bulk from Giant, Stauffers, and Weis provide food for the Saturday Breakfast downtown once a month. Helping others is easy, as well as a wonderful thing!
The Sundays in June will be Undies Sundays! Please consider participating in this ministry to help Martin Elementary School students by donating underwear for boys and girls ages 4 to 12. We are collecting these Undies in the Wishing Well. We have another fun collection for July, so stay tuned! Thank you for supporting Undies Sundays!
Wacky Wednesdays will be held this year from 10-11:30 am on Wednesdays from June 28-August 2 in Rader Park. Please visit the Welcome Center for a detailed flyer.
Vacation Bible School
Church of the Apostles and Salem U.C.C. invite you to join us for Vacation Bible School 2017 on June 18-22 from 6:30-8:30 pm. Registration forms are located at the Welcome Center. Please return completed forms to the church office by June 12, or register online at www.apostlesucc.org.
Come visit the garden and see all the things growing! We have times for anyone to help throughout the week – Tuesdays at 9 am, Fridays at 7 pm, and Sundays after the 9:15 service. You don’t need to sign up. There are picnic tables in the garden so you can even bring a picnic and enjoy watching the plants grow or the people working.
There are four gazebos in the park that may be used as stopping spots on a Meditation Walk in Rader Park. Each gazebo was recently power washed and a wood preservative applied. An area around each gazebo will be prepared for a special planting. What is needed now are four families or groups of friends who will plan a meditation and choose the plants that will go around the structure to make it inviting. Let the office know if you are interested, or call Carol Nielsen at 391-2815 if you have any questions.
Transitional Living Center (TLC)
Next Sunday, June 18th, Doug Hopwood, Division Manager of Transitional Living Center, will be speaking in church about TLC and its need for funding for air conditioning for several rooms in the building. (Please see The Crown for full article.) Working together as a church, we have a great opportunity to help Transitional Living Center operate at 100% capacity.
