Help Needed

          Counters

If anyone wants to help out with the workings of the church we are looking for a couple persons to count the offering after church. It takes 30 to 45 minutes if all goes well. Since Carl is leaving for a job in Denver, we have a full time counters position open and looking for a part time counter to fill in when another counter is absent. Please contact Duane Buckley for any details you need answered. Thanks.

          Yard Maintenance

Since Carl is leaving for a job in Denver, we are needing help with mowing the property weekly, which takes about 3 hours to complete, usually on a Friday night or Saturday morning with mowing and trimming. It would be nice to have teams so that we would only have a commitment of once a month, but that will take 4 teams of 2 people to accomplish. If you would like to help, contact Duane Buckley for any details you need answered. Thanks.

 

Snack Packs

We are packing Snack Packs Sunday. If you are interested in helping, we meet after the 10:15 worship service in Room 107.

We are collecting items for snack packs. A list of needs is available in the Narthex.

Please check the expiration dates on food to give us as long as possible to use it all and bring the items you purchase to church.

You may also put money into the Snack Pack money jar.

 

Shepherd’s Shop  Serving the Watauga area for 18 years

        Open Friday, 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM, and Saturday, 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM

The Shepherd Shop appreciates and depends upon the donations of clean, ready-to-wear or ready-to-use items that are seasonably appropriate. The Shop does not have running water, so it’s hard for us to wash or clean items that are donated. We also have limited storage space for off-season items. We accept clothing, kitchen items, linens, shoes, books, and small furniture items.

 

NEED

We collect food for NorthEast Emergency Distribution.

Next time you are at the store, pick up some nonperishable food.

The basket for NEED is in the Administration Office. 

 

Bus Token Ministry

The bus token ministry is requesting spare change from all members of our church.

The target is $50 of donations per month to go to the Presbyterian Night Shelter for bus tokens for disabled homeless.

The donation jar is on the information booth in the narthex.

Ron, In His Grace
