Church & Society
By Chris Wilbur
During the months of August and September, our congregation will be collecting school and art supplies for the McLean/Falls Church Children’s Center. The McLean/ Falls Church Children’s Center provides daycare and a quality early childhood education to low income families. This enables those living in poverty to get jobs and have a safe place to leave their children. It also gives these often-underserved children the opportunity to prepare for Kindergarten.
Please place all donated items in the bins located inside the entryway doors to the church or in the bins in the Fellowship Lobby.
Any kind of art or craft supplies, but especially tempera paints, stickers, and glue sticks
Washable markers, safety scissors, construction paper
Cheerios (plain only)
Cake mixes (no chocolate or nuts)
Please prayerfully consider chairing the Church & Society ministry. It is a great opportunity to be involved in the life of the church and to meet some really terrific people. Help will be provided!
Crafts for a Cause sent 65 handmade dresses to Uganda a few weeks ago, supporting an active ministry called Dress a Girl Around the World. The simple cotton dresses fit girls from toddlers to teenagers and have been distributed in Africa, Asia, Central America and elsewhere. We will continue to make the dresses, so if you’re interested in participating come to one of the Crafts work sessions. In August, we’ll be meeting Mon., Aug. 8, and Mon., Aug.22 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124.
In addition to the dresses, Crafts will continue working on the comfort items we provide each month to Fair Oaks Hospital. We are also already working on items to sell at the Crafts Holiday Bazaar in November. There are lots of opportunities to have fun and make a difference, locally and globally, so join us! No need to be crafty – just helpful. For more information, contact Molly Sprouse.
Moms’ Group will meet Thursday, August 4, from 7 – 9 p.m. We will unwind and get to know each other while exploring adult coloring at the Briscoe home, 1117 Kensington Rd. (McLean). Karen will provide light refreshments! Bring your own coloring books, markers, pencils and crayons OR just come as Karen has plenty to share! All are welcome.
