Once again we are collecting monetary donations for the annual Give a Kid a Chance backpack program. Donations will help purchase backpacks and all the necessary school supplies for needy children in Cherokee County. Rather than shop for the individual supplies, we are requesting monetary donations. We will then order the backpacks and supplies. A backpack filled with all the essentials costs approximately $20. There will be a box in the entryway for donations. We will also have a service day in the summer where we will assemble the donated backpacks here at church.
Well, what is it they say about best laid plans?… After much discussion with the state and county health officials, MUST Ministries has been informed that they can no longer accept sandwiches that are made outside of certified kitchens for the Summer Lunch Program. MUST realizes this will significantly cut down the donations they will receive and are trying to provide the best options to allow us to help them. In the meantime, they are still accepting the “setup” portion of the lunch that consists of 2 individually packaged snacks and 1 drink in a paper bag. Setups are not affected by the new policy because they are pre-packaged items. Therefore, we will still be taking donations of individually packaged snacks and juiceboxes. We no longer need sandwich bags or paper bags. We are also investigating all our options as to how we can help them most, as we work around this obstacle and will communicate back to you ASAP. In the meantime, please know the assembly week and options may change, keep MUST in your prayers as they work through this new procedure, and keep those donations coming.
We again will be offering a volunteer staffed nursery for our Sunday, 10:45 a.m. worship service. If you are able to participate as a volunteer in this capacity and have taken the Child and Youth Protection Class, please let Janice Swinford know and we will get you on the schedule. A sign-up sheet is also available at Sign-up Central in the Fellowship Hall.
Volunteers are needed for the upcoming Lutheran Coalition for Habitat build. No experience necessary, just willing hands – training and tools are provided. Last build date for landscaping is June 15.
Thank you to all the wonderful teachers that helped with our youth and their christian education and faith formation.
