CHURCH YARD SALE

Come out and support our Church! On Saturday, October 5th from 8 A.M. – 1 P.M., we are hosting our Community Yard Sale in our parking lot (NO RAIN DATES). Volunteers are needed, so please consider joining us to help make it another successful season. Vendors please call 262-8651. Only $10 to rent each “Selling Spot” to sell your items. Now is the time to clear your attic and garage. Help spread the word! Tell your friends, neighbors, and everyone you meet. Come buy or sell. Help is needed before, during, and after our Community Yard Sale. Please contact Mary Swing at the church (262-8651).

CRUCIFER AND ACOLYTES

We have a couple of vacancies in our crucifer and acolyte program for the traditional service. Acolytes are usually children and teens who are tall enough to reach the candles on the altar. Crucifers are usually teens and adults who can carry the processional cross. If you have any interest in participating in this program, please contact Horace Ford or call the church office at 262-8651.

FOOD PANTRY

We continue to need paper grocery bags with handles and plastic bags. We also need canned tuna, soap bars and baby/toddler diapers. Donations may be left outside of the Food Pantry door (Burchette Room) on the first floor as you come in from the parking lot. Volunteers are, of course, always welcome. Come and see what we are doing. The Food Pantry and Clothes Closet are open each Wednesday from 10 AM until Noon.
