SMALL GROUP LEADERS NEEDED! Would you be interested in leading a
small group during the Sunday School hour or on Wednesday
evenings this coming fall? See John Sawyer or Lon Gerbers.

– 29th rotation. If you can help, please call Heather Dood ASAP!

OUR SPECIAL OFFERING for the month of August is designated for
FAMILY NETWORK OF WYOMING. Due to the fact that children are not
in school and receiving free meals, often the pantry is busier in the
summer months. This special offering will be received on Aug. 29th.

AN OPPORTUNITY – During August 15-21 area churches will be doing an
“Extreme Church Makeover” on Emmanuel Hispanic CRC on
36th Street in Wyoming. If you are interested in helping in some way,
pick up a flyer on the table in the narthex. There is a phone number
there, or contact Shari and possibly we can help as a group.

COLLECTION OF SCHOOL SUPPLIES: (This is a combined project of the
Mission Team and the GEMS!) During August and into September
we will be collecting school supplies for the over 200 school bags that
Phyllis Vander Sloot has already sewed for this purpose. These
‘School Kits’ will be given to Church World Service. Church World
Service sends these kits around the world to children in
impoverished schools, refugee camps, and other difficult settings so
that children can have the basic tools for learning.
The bags need to be filled with specific items. Each bag will contain the same school supplies:
 One pair of blunt scissors (rounded tip)
 Three 70-count spiral or tape-bound pads of 8” X 10 ½” ruled paper or pads with 200-210 sheets of ruled paper

(Please do not provide loose-leaf or filler paper)
 One 30-centimeter ruler (12” )
 One hand-held pencil sharpener
 One large eraser
 Six new pencils with erasers
 One box of 24 crayons (only 24)
Bring the requested school supplies to church. Boxes are in the narthex to collect the school supplies

for filling the bags. As time goes by, you will be informed as to what supplies we are still in need of and

what supplies are completed. Our goal is to fill 200 bags.
