Green Need Line Bags:  For the month of June, we will collect peanut butter, fruit cocktail, and diapers (infant to adult sizes). These may be placed in the green bags at the back of the sanctuary or in the green bag on the back pew.  Need Line also is in great need of $10 gas cards to get to medical appointments. If you would like to donate $10 to this cause, please drop it in the offering plate or bring to the church office and we will gladly purchase those cards.

Please collect quarters for “Laundry Love”: There are “Laundry Love” offering boxes in the narthexes for you to take home to put your quarters in.  We will be overseeing Laundry Love three times a year.  If you bring quarters in the church, you may empty them and put your quarters in the plastic box on the table in the Elders room on Sunday mornings or in the various Laundry Love collection boxes throughout the church.

 

 

We are next scheduled to oversee Laundry Love on July 22, 2019 from 4:30-7 p.m.
