Individual Kits of Comfort

This summer the children collected items and monetary donations through Bible School to put together Individual Kits of Comfort. With the donations received from VBS and others in the congregation, one hundred kits will be completed and sent to Children’s Disaster Services to be distributed.

     Six hundred kits were recently sent out to be distributed to those affected by the fires in California & Hurricane Laura. Since Children’s Disaster Services cannot go out to be with children because of COVID-19 and people mostly being housed in hotels, the kits go directly to families to provide play activities for the children.

     Thank you to each person that provided items or money to purchase items for the kits. Linville Creek is generous in helping others!

Comfort Knotting

     The week of September 8-11 (Tuesday through Friday), comforters will be set up in the Fellowship Hall for knotting.  If you can tie a knot, you can help.  The church will be open from 9-11 am, 1-3 pm, and 6-8 pm each of those 4 days.  Social distancing will be observed and please wear your mask.

     Once completed, these comforters will be given to the Salvation Army as well as veterans in need and those whose homes have burned.  As always, should you have old blankets or sheets to donate, please bring them to the church.  Questions:  Lana Allison or Nancy Barb.

Mission Offering

     September 13th is scheduled as a special offering for Missions.  This offering highlights our passion in the Church of the Brethren for service, international missions, and living unto the Lord together with our sisters and brothers around the world.  Please make note on the memo line of your check “CoB Mission Offering.”

Blood Drive

     An American Red Cross Broadway Community Blood Drive is scheduled for September 29, 3:00-7:00 p.m. at LCCoB. All donors will get a COVID-19 Antibody Test as well as a coupon via email for a free haircut at Sport Clips Haircuts.  For an appointment, please visit redcrossblood.org and use sponsor code: BroadwayCommunity

Looking for a Way to Help Victims of Disasters?

     The Kit Depot at the Shenandoah District Office is supplying items for school kits that will be assembled to be distributed through Church World Service to areas following disasters.  The committee, involved with the Depot, has invited individuals and or groups to donate items for school kits.  This is a great time since most of the items needed are in stores for “Back to School” specials.  Any of the following listed items will be helpful.  If you prefer giving money instead of shopping, make the check out to Shenandoah District CoB with a note in memo line, school kit supplies.  Someone will shop for you.  Mail check to Shenandoah Church of Brethren, District Office, P.O Box 67, Weyers Cave, VA 24486

     Items can be dropped off at a basket in the basement.  Call Nancy Harlow at 540-350-2298, or Catherine Lantz at 896-7556 if you have questions.  Catherine is away until Aug. 12th.
