Who’s doing what this month…
June 16, 2019
ALTAR FLOWERS are given today by Clay and Jayne Starwalt in memory of their fathers, Ray and Ron.
SANCTUARY CANDLE is given today by Iris and Co Soulé in memory of Major Carl W. Drake, killed in action in Vietnam June 18, 1970.
RETIREMENT: After over 25 years with us, our secretary, Polly Ziegler, has retired, effective May 19th. After so many years of service, we can’t let the moment pass unnoticed, so we’re planning a retirement party for her at coffee hour next Sunday, when she and Dave plan to join us for worship. If you are able to bring an appetizer or a sweet, we would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!
CARITAS DAY CALENDAR CHALLENGE: Take the Caritas Day Challenge and help stock our Resource Center! In July they will be celebrating the mission of creating healthy relationships, loving homes, and strong communities through a variety of ways. In previous years, churches and organizations have done this as a group or challenged their families to participate. The drop off date for the items is July 31st at 900 Royal Heights, Rd. from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. (See insert for more information and the calendar to follow).
FOOD PANTRY: Our next monthly food pantry ingathering will be Sunday, July 7th! They are always in great need of non-perishable food, but also personal hygiene items, so please be generous!
COMMUNITY FEED MY LAMBS: Coming Friday, June 28th – We are once again participating in the O’Fallon Community Feed My Lambs program, distributing lunches during the week to areas of O’Fallon where many children are in the school lunch program during the year. Ten churches in O’Fallon are participating in the program. NEW THIS YEAR, St. Michael’s will be making and distributing lunches on select FRIDAYS. We would like you to be a part of this fun fellowship activity and community mission project. A sign-up sheet is on the narthex table where you can indicate the designated days that you are available. If you would like to help with the driving and actual delivery, that would be wonderful. You will be able to see what this project is all about! If you have any questions, please contact Ann Wilt (618-977-1187). We hope you can join us!
PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY: After the meeting on June 20th, we will not be meeting again until September 19th (and every third Thursday of each month thereafter). Please continue to knit and crochet over the summer, if you are able. If you have questions, please speak to Cathy or Yasemin.
PLASTIC-BAG MAT PROJECT: We are officially taking the summer off, but please feel free to come and get supplies if you would like to continue on at home throughout the summer months. If you can fold, cut, tie or crochet, we need you! If you would prefer to come to the church and work, please feel free to do so.
June 18 – Aaron McNitt
June 20 – Yasemin Koss
June 23 – Candi and John Hamill
