Our rummage sale last month was a huge success, thanks to David Haynes and many helping hands. The final total was just a shade under $1,500. This will definitely help fund the service projects we committed to this year, including a one-time donation of an extra $1,000 to our church budget. Thank you, thank you, David and ladies (and maybe a couple of gents, too). Also, thanks to the Boy Scouts for setting up the tables.
At our February meeting, Gary Estep spoke to us about the work of the Church and Society Committee, in particular our church’s support of the Youth for Change 6th Street Center. He also spoke about Chris Moore-Backman, a peace and social justice advocate, who has written a book “The Gandhian Iceberg.” Many thanks, Gary, for an interesting and informative program.
Our next meeting is Wednesday, April 12th at 10 a.m. in Hadley Hall. Representatives from the Jesus Center will speak to us about their various programs. All women (and men, too) are invited to attend. We will have devotions and snack time prior to the talk. Do come!
We are still selling Trinity cookbooks, which would be a good addition for adult Easter baskets! We are also seeking angels to purchase copies for the Esplanade House as well as residents of the new homes supported by the Jesus Center. See Lily Loughlin or Mavis McGillis to make a donation or purchase ($5 each or 5 for $20).
SAVE THE DATE…Plans are underway for a Mother’s Day Tea on Saturday, May 13th. More information to come.
