Multi-Generational Valentine's Day Outreach - On February 5th, the Sunday school program will be hosting a multi-generational outreach activity. The children will meet in their classrooms and then go to Williams Hall at 9:00 am to make Valentine's Day cards for the children of Weisman Rehabilitation Hospital and for home bound parishioners. Everyone is welcome to come and participate alongside the children. We will also be collecting novelty gift items appropriate for boys or girls 6 months to 17 years of age. Ideas include new books and magazines, hand held games, playing cards, activity and coloring books, small stuffed toys, and personal gift items. Please refrain from bringing edible treats as they cannot be accepted by the hospital due to various medical conditions that are present. Bins for these items will be available in the Narthex and in the Sunday School wing.
IHN - Thank you to all who volunteered this past week to cook, set up, drive, sleepover, donate, host...all went very well! A special thanks to Joe for coordinating this effort!
