REAL OPTIONS PREGNANCY CENTER: We will be collecting layettes for Real Options (pregnancy center) for the next 3 weeks. Just pretend you are going to a baby shower. All things you might get for the new baby will be appreciated. Some of the items would be: onesies, gowns, booties, outfits, receiving blankets (swaddling blankets), rattles, teething toys, etc. Please, no diapers. But needed are diaper bags and bottles. All of this is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your caring. Donations may be placed in the basket in the Narthex.
DINER’S NIGHT AT MANDARIN GOURMET: Join your fellow members for a tasty meal on Saturday, May 26th! The cost is $25 per person, which includes several delicious dishes, a soft drink of your choice, tax and tip. Space is limited to 24 people, so sign up soon in the Narthex. We will meet promptly at 5 PM at the restaurant (5560 Santa Teresa Blvd.) and all attendees must be prepaid. Hope you can join us!
VBS VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: From June 18th-22nd we will be exploring “Babylon: Daniel’s Courage in Captivity” for the children in our church and community. Please prayerfully consider how God can use you this summer with this incredible outreach opportunity. If you have any questions about volunteering for our VBS program, please email DCE-intern Allyssa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MITE DONATIONS were sent to Lutheran Women for mission projects, just in time to close out the projects for 2016-2018. New projects were voted on at the district convention and #1 is outreach to college students at Chico State and Butte College. The mite goal for the next two years is $200,548! Take a mite box and fill it with your “mites” – both coin and paper. THANK YOU!
