Please bring a canned food item to donate. There is a break for bathrooms and water at the half way point.

Food Pantry Collection— During the month of September we will be collecting cans of soup, broth and vegetables for the Lyonsville food pantry.

Collection for Ponca Tribe – The Loehman’s will be travelling to Oklahoma in October to visit their friends on the reservation.  One of our mission projects for September is to take up a collection to give to the Loehman’s when they go to Oklahoma so they can purchase some items for baskets, which they will pass out. Money will be collected until Sunday, September 23rd Your donations are greatly appreciated.

Pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House
We are collecting pop tabs to take to the Ronald McDonald House.  We will have a collection container located in the fellowship hall. If you have any questions please see Cindi Fiandaca.

Box Tops for Education
We are also collecting Box Tops for Education to give to Byrne School.  Collecting Box Tops is an easy way for schools to earn cash.  It’s easy to find Box Tops (a list will be by the collection box). In fact, you may have some in your home right now.  All you have to do is clip the Box Tops from your favorite products and put them in the collection container located in the fellowship hall.  If you have any questions please see a member of the Mission Board.

Please bring donations to church.

 

 

Summer Worship

Worship & Spiritual Growth Board has decided to hold worship downstairs June 3 – September 2, so we can have a comfortable and consistent worship space in the summer, as well as have the freedom to explore different styles of worship. The Church isn’t the sanctuary. The church is the people – and we look forward to being gathered for worship this summer.
