OUTREACH MINISTRY NEWS – JUNE 2018
We sincerely appreciate your generosity in helping us make the Ice Cream Social on May 10th such a success. The troops serving around the world will benefit from your kindness and willingness to help with this event. Once again thank you.
During the summer months, many children do not benefit from school meals and we would like to provide enough food to fill twenty baskets. Once again, we ask for your support in supplying food to put in these baskets for these children. Simple food items such as: cereal, peanut butter & jelly, soups, meals in a can, tuna fish, crackers, macaroni & cheese, vegetables, hamburger helper are just a few. A basket is available in the upper atrium to place your items in. We will be collecting from now until June 17th. If you are interested in helping pack the boxes, please see Kathie Carpenter or Cindy Barnett.
Our next Outreach Ministry meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, June 11th here at the church. If you have any questions, please contact Kathie Carpenter at 518-853-3330.
We received an unbelievable number of items for the Veteran’s Hospital and lovely cards for our veterans. We will be organizing a group to go and distribute cards and thank our veterans in person, the week of Vacation Bible School. We plan on leaving right after VBS and eating lunch at Sonic’s. Than we will head down to the Veteran’s Hospital. We would like to take all the young people that would like to come and any adults too. We will be looking for drivers to help carpool and bring down the boxes of items we collected. For more information please contact Cathy Carpenter or Gretchen Subik.
