Hands and Feet of Jesus

School Supply Drive

One of the activities we adopted in our Hands and Feet of Jesus ministries was providing school supplies for students at Howard Elementary. Many of the families in our community cannot afford to provide these needed supplies for their children and we want to help. Below is a list of supplies that we are collecting to share with students in need. You will notice that some of the supplies are listed by their brand name and educators tell us that is because even though they may cost a little more those brands provide better bang for the buck.

We have a collection box for these supplies in the main hallway and we ask everyone to bring in your donations by Sunday, August 19, so they may be delivered to the school that week. Thank you so much for caring and for giving!

Supplies for Howard School:                                              

12 pack Ticonderoga Laddie brand pencils; 24 count Crayola crayons; Pencil top erasers; large erasers; 12 count Crayola color pencils; 8 count Crayola color markers (washable); glue sticks; bottles white glue; rulers; pencil pouches; red, blue, yellow and green pocket folders; notebook paper; pens; solar calculators; 3-ring binders; pocket dividers for binders; 3×5 lined note cards; spiral notebooks; Kleenex tissues; backpacks.

Clothing Give Away

There are many in our valley making hard choices right now.  After rent, utilities and food there isn’t much left for school and work clothes. On September 15 we will be the hands and feet of Jesus by giving away clean, gently used clothing and coats.  If you just love to shop, there is always a need for new socks and underwear (either gender, any size). We will need friends to assist shoppers on Saturday and to sort clothes on Friday. Call Earlene Schlosser if you have questions 541-890-6218.

Food Pantry Thank You

Thank you to everyone who brought donations for our food pantry; the shelves are well stocked and we will be able to help many families with food in the days to come. Thank you for showing the love of Jesus by supporting this need meeting ministry.

 

 

99th Birthday Celebration for Vera Wisely

August 18th at 12 noon

The family and friends of Vera will celebrate her 99th Birthday with a potluck dinner in the MFC Fellowship Hall and they invite us, their Church Family, to join the celebration.  Vera has requested no gifts, but cards are most welcome.

For the potluck please bring a main dish and a side dish; coffee and punch will be provided and if you want any other soft drink feel free to bring your own.  Marilyn will provide a large birthday cake, so dessert items are not necessary, but always welcome.  We will cut and serve the cake around 1:30 p.m. If you would rather come for just cake and coffee, please feel free to come then.  We will be at the church from 12 noon to 4 p.m.

Please RSVP so we will know how many to plan for:

541-664-1503 or 541-664-3363 or email mts1040@hotmail.com.
