Sleeping Bags

Thank you to all who have offered to lend sleeping bags for the Japanese students to borrow when they attend camp in Pennsylvania.  At this time it looks like we have enough with those who have   contacted Michelle.  Please bring your sleeping bags (you may wish to mark your name on them) to church by July 22nd.  If anyone has extra pillows or air mattresses they could also borrow, let Michelle know.


Hudson “Adopt A Backpack” School Supplies Collection

Tags will soon be available for anyone who would like to donate to the drive.  Each tag will list the supplies needed for one child.  The deadline for returning donations is Sunday, July 22nd.


Adopt and Island!

There are a few more islands in our parking lot that could use an “adoptive parent” to care for and maintain it throughout the season.  All that is needed is to keep it weeded and trimmed.  Sign-up at the Welcome desk.
