Once again New Bremen Churches are partnering to assist families who may find it difficult to afford all the school supplies for their kids. The “Backpack” back to school program will supply a backpack with all needed school supplies for the new school year.
Please see the display in the foyer and pull a tag to pur-chase items to help fulfill this need. Items need to be re-turned to the church by no later than Sunday, July 16th. You can also make a monetary do-nation stating “Backpacks” on your check or envelope, or give to Kay Roeth or Cierra Otting. Thank you!
Volunteer for the kids church schedule (one month out of the year) and/or volunteer for the nursery and preschool departments on Sunday mornings. See Gina or Kristin for more information.
The Moms 4 Real group needs 3-4 people to help out on the second Sunday of the month from 8:30-11:15. This group needs some people to sit and play with their kids while the mothers get to meet together to encourage and enjoy one another’s company. Please contact Tina or Maggie. If you are not already you will need to be Safe Place certified. If you are not aware of the Safe Place Policy they will fill you in. Tina: firstname.lastname@example.org // Maggie: email@example.com.
Volunteers can serve at the Lima Rescue Mission in Lima, Ohio on Sundays (leaving at 3:45 p.m. for set-up then returning around 7 p.m.). Sign-up sheets in the main foyer of the church or you can contact Kay Roeth (419-629-3399) or Gina Tangeman (419-629-0194) to pick up a key and use the church van. Maximum of five people per trip due to limited space in kitchen.
Volunteers can also check for local assistance opportunities on www.mealtrain.com. Contact Julie Ferguson for more detail and see link below:
Donate your gently worn, used or new shoes to help the local YMCA raise funds for an organization collecting shoes so you can support micro-enterprise vendors. Micro-enterprises small businesses in developing nations. They typically involve a one-person operation while some micro-enterprises represent a family business depending on size. So drop your donated shoes in the bin located in the foyer. Thank you!
Cram the Van!
Remember Cram the Van occurs on the second Sunday of every month, so look for donation bags the Sunday before then plan to bring your donations to the church then.
Thanks so much for your support!
Join the drama team and perform at Sunday services once or twice a month. Just contact the church office or Shelly Finke.
