Let’s start thinking about “Tulip Time.”
Our next two pigs-in-the-blanket workshops are April 9th, 2-3:30pm and April 10th, 2-4:30pm. Please contact Mary Jo Wiswedel for questions. Thank you for your support, participation, and prayers.
Tulip Time is May 5-12. We will be serving Lunch and Dinner at the Church for busloads of guests, as well as serving food at Evergreen Commons. Many volunteers will be needed in both places. To help with dishwashing, cleanup, or preparing food in the kitchen, call Sally Garrett at 616-403-5431. For Evergreen Commons, call Dorothy Chamness at 616-396-3292. To help in the Dining Room at church call Linda DenUyl at 616-298-2781. For email, click on each name.
The money we earn is used to support missions within the Church, local social service missions, national groups and UMW programs serving families in more than 100 countries
We are still collecting the aluminum can tabs for Grand Rapids Community House which is owned by UMW and serves a mission for people in their area. All of those little tabs add up to thousands of dollars for missions when all the churches in the West Michigan Conference collect and turn them into GRCH.
Collection boxes are now located in the East hall near the custodian room. That same corner also receives the Styrofoam, cell phones, and the bags for PET. Keep saving the tabs, Campbell coupons and recycling.
