The saying is “April showers bring May flowers”, but who brings the showers? God of course!
WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
A “Thank you” to all of those that served at I-Help this last Friday night and Saturday morning! Many of the men attended Good Friday service. Let’s all pray that these men will seek God for guidance in their lives.
FOOD DONATIONS URGENTLY NEEDED
A statistic that might help you understand why we need so many donations, the Food Pantry served 437 people last month. Realize that the Food Pantry is only open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30-2:30 p.m. So yes, we are still in urgent need of canned meats, such as chicken, tuna, roast beef or salmon. Also beef stew, chili, canned beans and breakfast cereal. We so appreciate all of the donations you have given, Thank you!
WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS WEEKEND:
- I-Help, Friday-Saturday April 29th-30th
We will be hosting I-Help again this Friday night/ Saturday morning. Serving them dinner & breakfast and giving them a warm place to sleep, is God’s gift to us. What a heartfelt gift it is!
- Women’s Shelter Visit, Sunday May 1st
It’s “Bingo Night”. Come pray with the women, as their needs are many. Then have some fun playing Bingo. Maybe you will win a prize!
WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS MONTH:
- Prayer Warriors needed!
Join Patrice Glithero and Nancy Kreer in the lower foyer (street side) near the Tide pool, 9:45 a.m. on Sundays. They will be praying for the pastors, for the message of the day, for everyone’s hearts and minds to be open, for all to hear & receive Christ, for the Children’s Ministry, for Jerusalem, for prayers on the prayer list and for any other needs that the Holy spirit leads us to pray about.
WHAT’S HAPPENING NEXT MONTH:
- Rebuilding Together May 7th 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Come help us as we restore a home & heart of a single mother with 4 children. Bring any tools, paintbrushes, cleaning items, etc. that you might have around the house. Lunch will be served. If you would like to give your heart and help, sign up at the Community Outreach Booth.
- CHOMP Blood Drive May 22nd
If you would like to donate blood before or after service, please sign up and pick up your paperwork starting on May 8th at the Community Outreach Booth.
- Annual Backpack and School Supply Drive
Our annual drive starts May 22nd, and the need has increased dramatically from last year. Every child deserves to go to school prepared to learn, so let’s do our part to make that happen.
Pick up your May 2011 calendar at the Community Outreach Booth to find out all that’s happening next month.
I you have any questions or would like more information about any of the above listed events, or any other Community Outreach activities, please stop by the booth this Sunday, shoot us an email, or call us at the church.
