Thank you to everyone who donated detergent for our Gaywood Food Program families. Another need which our families have that falls outside the scope of the Food Program is toiletries. For the next few weeks, we will be collecting shampoo, bar soap, body wash, deodorant, toothpaste, and other toiletries, and we ask that you consider picking something up the next time you’re at the grocery store, Target, etc. Thank you for your generosity and for enabling us to help these families!
St. George’s Day, International Potluck Lunch and Visioning Kick-Off
Date: Sunday, April 22nd
Time: 11:30 am to 1:00 pm (after the 10 am service)
Join us on Sunday, April 22nd, as we celebrate St. George’s Day and start a conversation about what we envision for our future. At our annual international potluck lunch, we will begin to engage parishioners in conversation about how we would like to grow, and what our congregation’s priorities should be for the next 3 to 5 years. So bring a dish to share and join us for food and discussion!
Bring in Your Lenten Offering for Operation Agua
This year our Lenten Offering will go to Operation Agua, an organization devoted to bringing clean drinking water to Puerto Ricans whose homes were devastated by Hurricane Maria. Bring in your offerings and place them in the offering basket.
The next ECQ book club meeting is on the fourth Tuesday of April at 10 AM. Having canceled the March meeting due to weather, we will be discussing last month’s selection, A Wrinkle in Time by M. L’Engle. As time permits, we will also discuss The Third Reconstruction: Moral Mondays, Fusion Politics and the Rise of a New Justice Movement, by Rev. W. J. Barber II, or reserve that discussion for the May meeting. Questions? Ask Mary Frances Bruce.
The St George’s Yard Sale will take place on Saturday, May 12 from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM. We are looking for donations and volunteers to help out with this event. If you are doing any spring cleaning over the next month or just want to get rid of household items, please consider donating them to the Yard Sale. Please contact Charlotte Colvin at email@example.com if you can help out with the sale or if you have questions. Thanks!
