This July our Communion Rail Offering will support the mission projects during Vacation Bible School (VBS). Your generosity will help our children serve and learn in a meaningful way, as well as help those we will serve.
During VBS, children will participate in hands on activities showing love to neighbors – church members, teachers, and others. They will learn about and contribute to our main ministries with the hungry and homeless in the Austin community assembling Manna Bags for the congregation to distribute and hygiene kits for distribution at the Feed My People breakfast. By the end of the week, the children will have a deeper appreciation of these ministries, the people we serve, and why these ministries are so important. Our children will also be learning about Zoe and be empowered to create their own Zoe related projects.
But, we need your help! Monetary donations may be left at the communion rail, made online, or sent to or brought to the church office during the month of July. Please indicate VBS Mission Projects on the memo line.
In addition to monetary donations, we will be collecting items for the hygiene kits. We need 300 of each of the following items:
- Bar soap
- Hand sanitizer
- Disposable razors
- Stick deodorant
- Feminine hygiene items
Please bring donations items to the church by Sunday, July 30. Donation bins will be available in the foyer and Family Life Center. We are thankful to have such generous members and the opportunity to serve our children and our community in such a meaningful way. We look forward to sharing with you the results of the week!
