The Mission Committee has designated the month of September for the collection of toilet paper for the folks served by the Turning Point Food Pantry.We have been doing a fantastic
job of collecting a vast assortment of food items for the food pantry for the past several months and years.
We have made and are continuing to make a huge difference. Now, for the next month, we are going to take a different focus in our mission outreach for the folks who visit the pantry to help meet their needs.
We hope to build a mountain of toilet paper in the narthex.
We, as a community of caring Christians, including folks from five other Bath area churches and the Methodist Church in Hornell, have donated several thousand rolls of toilet paper.
So, church family, let’s get on a ROLL and once again show how much we care and how much we want to reach out to those in need in our community.
The Stephen Ministry team is preparing to offer a training class this fall. If God is calling you to this caring ministry, please complete an application [on the table in the Narthex] by September 9th and return to any of the individuals listed below. You can also audit the course to gain valuable skills that are helpful in caring for others.
If you have any questions, please contact Don Snyder, Diane Doty, Kathy Putman, or pastor Eleanor, or speak to any Stephen Minister to see how this ministry has changed their life.
A “Housecleaning Day” has been scheduled for Saturday, from 9 a.m. to noon. The intent of this workday is to de-clutter some of the gathering spaces and closets in the Education/Office Building, in advance of the UMW Rummage Sale. There will be sign-up sheets and more information available at the early September Worship Services. For this event, many hands make light work! Won’t you plan to join us for all or part of the morning?
