For the month of June we are in need of laundry detergent (in small bottles) for our food pantry that supports Moore Elementary School families. You may place your donations in the box provided in the Gallery Hall. Thank you for your support!

Once again we are joining with Temple Emanuel and collecting school supplies for Moore Elementary Students. We will need the supplies by August 1 so they can be distributed to families in the food pantry before school starts. You may bring your items to the yellow school bus in the Gallery Hall. Needed: wide-rule paper, pencils, erasers, washable markers, 24-pack cray-ons, glue sticks, pencil pouch/box, wide-rule spiral / composition notebooks, 5 subject notebooks & 3x5 index cards for 5th grade, 2-pocket folders, 1” binders, backpack (NO wheels), hand sanitizer, quart /gallon zip-lock bags, & tissues for classrooms.

City with Dwellings (the organization which runs the overflow homeless shelters in the winter) has ways we can support them in the non-winter months. They are in need of volunteers at their Day Resource Center, Tuesdays and Thursdays 9–11:00 a.m. They also need donations of white crew socks, bottled water, pre-packaged snack foods and bus passes. To learn more or to volunteer, visit www.citywithdwellings.org

Please remember that our summer schedule has begun. From Memorial Day through Labor Day we will worship in one service at 10:00am.
