Regular, diet and caffeine-free (both regular and diet) are needed. All donations are appreciated. ST JOHN MINISTRY UPDATE – We are currently providing an evening meal to the guests at St John once a month. Those who have served in this ministry have gained as much as they have given – not for their own glory, but knowing that they are just following our Lord's command “Love your neighbor as yourself”. The guests at the shelter truly appreciate the “home cooked” meals – their smiles speak volumes. One misconception is that the homeless don't have jobs. Actually some go to sleep quite early because they have to get up early and walk to their place of employment. These are people who, for a variety of reasons, are homeless. We will be providing evening meals March 19 and 28, and April 15. We'll soon be contacting those of you who have already volunteered to help by providing food. Anyone else who would like to join us may contact the office at 468-4065. Financial donations are always appreciated; please write your name and church envelope # on a plain envelope and indicate “Homeless Shelter Meals” on the envelope. Donations are used to purchase meat, milk, juice, paper plates, cups, forks, knives, spoons, etc. We ask for your prayers that the Lord would continue to guide us in this ministry. GIVING OPPORTUNITIES UNLIMITED – Prescription pill bottles - remove the label and bring with the cap on. Cell phones – for local domestic abuse victims and ‘Cell Phones for Soldiers’. Non-perishable food - Manna for Life food pantry (ongoing). Personal care/cleaning supplies - Help for the Homeless campaign (until March 21). We thank those who are participating in these outreach opportunities. Donation containers are in the office hallway by the coat rack. HOW SWEET! – Sweet Monday is coming again. Ladies, meet in the parlor on March 1 from 7-8:30pm. We will see a cooking demonstration and make resurrection eggs. You'll receive recipes and ideas to help your family celebrate Easter in unique, meaningful ways. Great for families with small children (but good for everyone! If you have any of these supplies, would you bring them with you? cotton balls, dimes, thorns, dice, string or leather lace, small nails, a sponge, small rocks, egg cartons, and lots of colorful plastic eggs for the items.
