"LOOK AT ALL THIS STUFF"
so says Lucy to Charlie Brown through her "telephone" of string and tin cans.  Charlie Brown is on the other end of that string that completely circles the worship space at Faith United Church of Christ.  The string contains the "packages of items" (some 325+) given to DVIP, plus sacks filled with personal hygiene items, lotions, and shampoos.



As the picture to the left shows, there were hundreds of pairs of underwear and socks for women, men, girls, and boys of all sizes and shapes.  Thanks to all for making Christmas In July 2014 another wonderful Christmas!


NOW IT'S  TIME FOR THE 
BACK TO SCHOOL BOOGIE!

The past several years we have been engaged with back to school supplies and back packs.   Well, in 2014 we are again; but with some significant changes.
Members and friends of Faith UCC have cut, pieced, and stitched all kinds of material together to make some TERRIFIC back packs for more than 270 students at Mark Twain Elementary this year.
Now, we must purchase the supplies that go into the back packs based on grade-level needs.  That will require some significant monetary outlay and we need help raising the funds for this important ministry.  We already have some funds on hand; but we will need approximately $1500.00 to cover our supply list.  We will receive our August Birthday offering on Sunday, August 24, 2014 for the benefit of back to school supplies.  Please plan to give generously on that Sunday.
Meanwhile---supplies are being purchased and empty back packs await packing on Sunday, August 10, 2014.  Come to worship, then stay following to assist with the packing.  So get on your dancin' shoes and be ready to Boogie!!!
Distribution is set at Twain Elementary on Thursday, August 14 with classes beginning on August 19.
