Outreach Committee – April 2017

APRIL IS CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH, and the Outreach Committee has placed a Pinwheel of Hope Tree in the Narthex. This year, our donations will benefit The Friendship Warming Room.  Please consider taking a pinwheel from the tree and purchasing the item that has been placed on the tag. Simply bring the item back to the Narthex and place your item under the tree sometime during the month of April.  We will then take the items to the Friendship Warming Center.

CANCER DIETARY INITIATIVE

The Outreach Committee will conduct a canned soup food drive during the months of May and June to benefit the Cancer Dietary Initiative which provides nutritious food for cancer patients in our community.  If you would like to participate during these months, please place canned soup donations in the chest located in the narthex.

 

Men’s Prayer Breakfast

The Men’s Prayer Breakfast is returning! They will meet once a month on the third Saturday, from 7:30-9:00 A.M.  The first breakfast will be held on Saturday, February 18th, in fellowship hall. We look forward to the return of this meaningful ministry of fellowship and prayer.  John Calvin Institutes Bible Study meets at 9:00 A.M. following the breakfast.
