School Supply Drive

Many families in the local community cannot afford to provide school 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 at Howard Elementary. 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. A collection box for these supplies is in the main hallway. The deadline for bringing in supplies is Sunday, August 17th.

Supply List :

12 pack Ticonderoga 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 of 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.

 

Help Wanted  We are currently looking for people who would like to serve in the Holy Grounds coffee ministry during the fellowship time on Sunday mornings. Training will be provided. If you are interested or have any questions please see Nate Swift.

Holy Grounds Proceeds to Child Evangelism of Jackson County For the last few years all of the Holy Grounds Coffee shop proceeds and tips have gone to building houses in Mexico. The decision has been made to share the proceeds with other ministries too, and through December the proceeds and tips will go to Child Evangelism Fellowship of Jackson County. So, buy a drink and help share the love of Jesus with the kids in our area!

 

Schedule Change –  No Sunday School on August 31st

On August 31st we will have worship as usual at 9:30 a.m., followed by a fellowship time but we will not meet for Sunday School that day.
