We will wrap up with the 7:30 a.m. Garden Worship service and breakfast. Let Chelsea know by August 8th if you plan to attend so that we can plan for food and baseball tickets!

FOOD PANTRY BACKPACKS – School is out for the summer, but preparation for the 2017-2018 school year is underway. Last year, the Pantry distributed 123 backpacks to children Pre-K through grade 12. The families provide each child’s supply list and a backpack is filled with the required items. The Pantry is now collecting supplies and is most in need of the following:
– backpacks for middle/high schoolers,
– 2- and 3-inch ring binders (new),
– plastic pocket folders,
– subject dividers,
– full-size boxes of Kleenex, and
– rolls of paper towels.
To see the entire list of school supplies, please read page 2 of the Pantry’s newsletter at http://bit.ly/2uAIzNi . Donations may be left in the shopping cart in the coatroom.
