Church & Society
During the month of April we will be collecting the following items for the Falls Church-McLean Children’s Center:
- art supplies (construction paper, tempera paints, laminating paper, masking tape, Popsicle sticks, beads, stickers, etc.)
- cake mix (no chocolate or nuts)
- plain Cheerios
- HE Tide laundry detergent
- canned fruit
The mission of the Falls Church-McLean Children’s Center is to provide “a comprehensive, high-quality, early-childhood program designed to give all young children, regardless of their family’s economic resources, a strong foundation on which to build the rest of their lives.” This is a great ministry providing daycare for under-privileged families and it’s located close by on Idylwood Rd. in Falls Church! Please place your donations in the bins located just inside the entry doors in the narthex or in the bins located in the fellowship building. For more information about this great ministry go to www.fcmlcc.org.
The Church & Society Committee will meet on April 23 in Room 402 following the 10:30 worship service and fellowship. New members are always welcome. Any question, please contact Alexandra Kiefer.
Crafts for a Cause has been busy making neck pillows, fleece hats, surgery dolls and heart-shaped pillows for patients at Fair Oaks Hospital, in addition to making blankets and hats for the Carpenter’s Shelter in Alexandria. There’s always plenty of work to be done, from cutting fabric to sewing and stuffing pillows. Join us on alternating Monday nights from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124 on these dates: April 10, April 24 and May 8.
If you can knit or crochet, there’s a pressing need for handmade baby hats. We can provide the patterns and the yarn. If interested, contact Molly Sprouse.
Although, the trailer is not actively collecting anything right now and will not take items to Honduras until the summer, Art for Humanity is looking for laptop bags now. The current project for Art for Humanity is a new elementary school in Honduras. They have received donated laptops, but need laptop bags to transport the devices. Bags can be left in the collection bin in the Fellowship Building.
