St. Paul's Meal Program: Please help us to provide God's work in the world by supporting St. Paul's Soup Kitchen in Lowell.
Please consider signing up for the St. Paul's Meal Program. Below is the link you can click on that will take you directly to the sign up page. If you want directions on how to set up an account, or how it works for first time users - there are print outs in the Narthex.
* ANNUAL YARD SALE / JUNE 8TH / 9-2 As an annual fundraising event, the Outreach Committee will reserve a spot for you on the lawn and will also provide an 8' table with chair for $20. Any proceeds from your table's sales are yours! If you have a few gently used items and would like to donate them to the Outreach table for sale, please leave saleable items in the downstairs foyer closet area no earlier than June 1st. Due to scheduling conflicts, we could use additional help on Friday afternoon, June 7th around 4:00 p.m., to assist with table set-up and moving goods outside.
Sales help is needed on Saturday, June 8th from 9-2 in 2-hour increments; 911, 11-1 and 1-2 with clean-up responsibilities. If you have a few hours to spare and can lend us a helping hand, please contact Betsy Peterson at (978) 657 - 0355 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once again, we are participating in the Town Wide Yard Sale sponsored by the library; we'll be listed on their map!
Come join us/visit us on the lawn. If necessary, our "rain date" will be June 15th; same times and location. Look forward to seeing you!
* ST. PAUL'S SOUP KITCHEN / JUNE SCHEDULE "Thank You" to all who supported our 2 month "toiletry drive". Much needed items were delivered to St. Paul's guests late in May.
"Thank You" to John Arvanitis for grilling burgers to be served to St. Paul's guests on June 10th (2nd Monday) and to Deanna Wright's Girl Scout Troop for making brownies for dessert and serving.
On June 25th (4th Tuesday), we need your help with serving (6 persons). Sign-up opportunities will be posted via the paper listing on the bulletin board in the narthex as well as on Sign-Up Genius. Outreach funds will be used to purchase menu items.
* UMCOR (United Methodist Committee On Relief) FLOOD BUCKETS On Sunday, May 26, our Sunday School youngsters will helped us pack 15 flood buckets with required cleaning items. The buckets will be delivered to Manchester, NH at the site of the UMC Conference where they will be transported to the PA warehouse. The required items were purchased by your Outreach Committee from funds raised during our 2018 Christmas Tree Sales; approx. $60 per bucket. These much-needed supplies will be distributed nationally through UMCOR's Flood Bucket ministry.
"By our gentle, loving actions we would show that Christ is light" (taken from the 2nd verse of Hymn 2237, As a Fire is Meant for Burning)
DWELLING PLACE Thanks to Judith and Magdalene Circles for serving the Dwelling Place in May. Hannah Circle is scheduled for June. From August through June our UMW Circles serve the Dwelling Place, but in July we post a sign-up sheet in the Narthex giving everyone an opportunity to provide food or to serve. This is a great way for students to fulfill some of their community service hours.
