5th Sunday Offering for Global Food Initiative

     On Sunday, April 29th, we will take our regular 5th Sunday “Dime-a-day” offering for the Global Food Initiative.  (GFI) is the primary way that the Church of the Brethren assists hungry people in developing food security. Since 1983, GFI (formerly Global Food Crisis Fund) has raised over $8,000,000 for community development projects in many  countries around the globe.

Youth Fundraiser Meal

After worship (and the brief Congregational Business Meeting) on April 29th the Youth will be providing a noon meal.  Your donations help fund their upcoming trip to National Youth Conference this summer in Colorado.

Help Needed Cleaning the Church

We continue to search for a custodian.  Until then, the SOP needs help in keeping the church clean and maintained.  There is a sign-up sheet of tasks that need to be done weekly.

Disaster Auction Info

Oysters   Consider donating to the May Shenandoah District Disaster Auction by giving towards the purchase of oysters.   An oyster container will be available on the table in the narthex during the month of April and May to buy a gallon or any portion of a gallon of oysters.  This helps to offset the cost of the Friday evening meal.   Many churches and individuals choose this as a way of contributing to the auction.  A gallon of oysters  costs approximately $85.   If choosing to donate and paying by check, make the check to SDDA and write oysters on the memo line.

Disaster Theme Baskets  During the month of April, CLAM will be collecting items for theme baskets to donate to the 2018 Disaster Auction.  There will be more information in the Sunday bulletins during April about the themes of the baskets.  CLAM will continue to collect items for the Disaster School Kits though the month of April.  The 2018 auction books will be available in the narthex April 1.
