Please, everyone, This is your LAST chance to correct your address, phone, new email addresses, birthdates! Next week we will print the directory again and make it available to you! Email any changes to me NOW! Cathy+ - Susanna601@aol.com
The food pantry is again nearly bare. Today alone, while Becca was here with her children, three families were served. We always need canned or frozen meat, canned chicken, beef stew, and tuna, canned fruit and juice, crackers, spaghetti sauce, dry cereal, jelly for the shelves, as well as eggs and cheese that can be refrigerated, and hamburger or hotdogs, bread, and other items that can be frozen. Home grown and canned produce is also welcome!
Kathy Brown will be home THIS SUNDAY, and the organ is perfect now, so make sure she knows how glad you are to have her back!
Remember that we now have AA meetings on Sunday night at 7 and Monday at 8, as well as Al-Anon on Tuesday at 6pm. If you have friends who need these meetings, please let them know. For some reason, AA does not advertise their meeting times or places publicly, so it is sometimes hard for people to find them.
New Project - Joyce Schmidt mentioned this last Sunday.
A huge reason that adolescent girls in many parts of the world do not attend school regularly, is the difficulty of managing their periods without modern, western disposable pads and tampons. http://www.daysforgirls.org
is meeting a need for washable pads. Check out the very cool website! We are the only group in Missouri currently to be starting a "chapter." Hopefully many other churches will join us. In the meantime, we need large amounts of preferably dark-colored flannel (no prints of people or animals, please). The pattern is available on the website, and Joyce will have it here as well. We will schedule a first sewing day soon. Let's do this!
Prayers - Please continue to pray for the remnants of the Church in Iraq as well as in Syria and Gaza. Christians are being driven out as militants move in. Thank God also for the many moderate Muslims who are speaking out against this and standing with Christians in these places.
And pray also for the family of Robin Williams, who was an Episcopalian as well as a world-famous comedian. Depression kills. And it does not discriminate between people of faith and unbelievers.
