  • Membership and Caring
  • Music
  • Religious Education
  • Program and Publicity
  • Social Concerns
  • Congregational Growth
  • Building and Grounds
  • Finance / New Budget Priorities

SUPPORTING ALFA

You can be part of this wonderful ongoing effort supporting real people in our community by bringing much needed food & non-food items to the collection bin in our front hallway. Here are the items that are ALWAYS needed:

  • Peanut butter and jelly/jam
  • Pasta and pasta sauce
  • Canned stews and chili
  • Beans in cans or bags
  • Canned tuna, chicken, salmon
  • Canned fruit or fruit cups
  • Boxed mashed potatoes, rice
  • Soap, deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste
  • Laundry detergent, dryer sheets
  • Toilet paper, feminine products

Your generosity is much appreciated!


Make Plans Now: August 27

Write it on your calendars! August 27th is the day we'll hold our annual picnic in the park. More details as we get them, but plan to join us at noon and stay until whenever. Food, fun, and fellowship!


We Need a Ladder

Y'know -- a ladder. Some of our routine maintenance (such as getting up into the attic where the furnace filters are) requires a ten-foot-tall ladder. We've begged and borrowed up till now and it's become a real problem. We need a ten-foot-tall stepladder, preferably aluminum, of our own. Does anyone on this mailing list have one they'll give to us, or perhaps sell for little? Or perhaps someone would like to buy a new high-safety-rated one as a tax-deductable contribution to the church? This email address is being protected from spambots.

Time, Talent, and Treasure

The work of this church thrives on contributions -- and for some that is money, for others it is time spent on our social outreach projects or on our building and grounds ... for others the contribution is in the form of singing, teaching, cooking, or any other talent or skill.

We are all grateful for all of these contributions!
