New Opportunity to Partner with Tulip Grove
If you are interested in volunteering with Tulip Grove as a Homework Helper and have not contacted Chelsea please do so this week or next. (firstname.lastname@example.org). The group is going to get fingerprinted and cleared to volunteer on Thursday, December 7, at 2 p.m. Serving as a Homework Helper is a great way for us to engage with the Bowie community outside our walls and share some love with the elementary students.
Fronts only of used Christmas cards with pictures that will appeal to children are needed. No religious pictures or messages. A marked receptacle will be available in the coatroom in early December through mid-January.

Anyone Want an Inflatable Kayak?
We’re in the process of downsizing, and among the things that need to go is a Coleman Inflatable One Person Kayak. It works well and hasn’t been used all that much. Inflates pretty quickly with an electric pump. Call Rick at 225-678-6173 and make an offer – we’ll donate the money to missions.
To ensure that your item is included in the Midweek Messenger, please send it to email@example.com by noon on Wednesday. Anything received after that may be held for the next week’s edition.
