Clean-Up Day on April 29

Please come to help with a special edition of spring cleaning:  getting ready for the Centennial Celebration!

If you have not yet recorded, please speak with Matt to schedule a time!

WELCA has updated and reissued their cookbook!  You can buy one for $10 — all proceeds go to the Centennial.  There is a bonus - there are places where you could color, so some of the cookbooks come with colored pencils!  See Sarah or Janet to buy your special edition!

Choir rehearsal for the May 20  concert will be on April 18 (next Tuesday) at 7:00.  Bring a friend!

LWR  Project

We would like to again have everyone make Personal Care Kits. Include the following items in each kit:

  • 2 to 3 bath-size bars of soap equaling 8 to 9 ounces

  • 1 adult-size toothbrush in original packaging

  • 1 sturdy comb (remove packaging)

All items should be new. Wrap all items in the towel and secure them with ribbon or yarn. A collection box labeled LWR will be in the back of the church. Thanks for your help!

Attention Thrivent Members 

Do you have an account, insurance, retirement plan, or any other type of product with Thrivent Financial? If so, you may be able to apply for Thrivent Action Team funds to support specific ministry/projects. In other words, money for ministry that won't come out of Hope's pocket! In the past, these funds have paid for VBS, care kits for homeless & domestic violence shelters, school supplies, and the community breakfast ministry!  Please let Sarah Stone know if you are a Thrivent member. We can coordinate our use of Thrivent funds.

Concert Reception

A punch and cookie reception will take place after the concert on May 20.  There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board by the kitchen if you are able to donate.  It will be appreciated.
