RESEARCH TEAM BEING FORMED

Dear Church family:

At the request of the Church Council, I am forming a small team to

research what is needed in our staff positions and overall church strategy

(paid and unpaid) to reach a more diverse population with the Good News of Christ.

  If you are interested in creating and conducting surveys, interviews and studying

demographics over the next 3 months, please contact me. Our first gathering will be in early June.

FROM OUTREACH COMMITTEE

Outreach Committee:

The Annual Clothing Collection for Vets has begun and will run through June 16

when the items will be delivered to the Bath VA.

As in the past, they have asked for sweatshirts and sweatpants (Med. To 2x, plain, no logos.)

They are hard to find this time of year.  If you have been able to find them, they will be appreciated.

Additionally, they have also requested men’s underwear (med., Lg, xl, and 2x), men’s t-shirts (Lg, xl, and 2x), and socks.

They can also use new or gently used sneakers. The T-shirts can be white or colored with no logos or writing on them.

PEACE WITH JUSTICE SUNDAY

 

Missions Committee:

The Peace with Justice Sunday offering on June 2, 2024,

will be used to help encourage living the gospel of peace here in our own country

and all around the world.

Please consider donating to this cause.

Thank you, the Missions Committee

MAY HOUSE BANK FOR HUNGER

May House Bank for Hunger:  

This event will continue throughout the month of May.

 It has come to our attention that Meals on Wheels needs funds to meet the growing need for their services.

The mission committee has decided to give the funds raised this May to the local meals on wheels.

A wooden house bank will be in the narthex during the month of May, or you can place your gift in the offering plate.
