COMMUNITY FEED MY LAMBS – PLEASE COME OUT AND HELP! This summer St. Michael’s will again be participating on selected Wednesdays from June 13 through August 1 in the outreach project Community Feed My Lambs. Each delivery day, members of O’Fallon churches will be making lunches for approximately 200 children in need, currently in the school lunch program. The details have been finalized and now we need to organize our group. There is a sign-up sheet in the Narthex for workers and drivers for the Wednesdays that we are involved (June 27, July 18, and August1). Workers will be putting together the lunches from 10-11:30 am at the church and the drivers will deliver from approximately 11:45 am to 1:00 pm. WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP ON ANY/OR ALL OF THESE DAYS? Please sign up! We would love to have you participate in this ministry, and your children are welcome to help us put the lunches together. We also are looking for donations of chips and small packages of cookies . Thank you to all who took part in our recent Outreach fundraiser at church and at Culver’s. Your participation is making this project a huge success. This really is an undertaking that needs everyone to pitch in. It is a wonderful ministry! If you have any questions, please contact Ann Wilt, 977-1187, email@example.com.
PLASTIC BAG MAT PROJECT: Please start saving your plastic bags for our mat project about which Judie Payne spoke a couple of weeks ago.

FOOD PANTRY: In June we are focusing on sugar, salt, canned meats, baby products like diapers. As always, donations of any food items would be greatly appreciated and put to good use. Thank you for your continued support!
YOGA: We want you to understand that anyone can practice yoga. It can be done from a chair! You don’t have to make your body into a pretzel or be model thin. All you have to do is become aware of your breathing, slow down from your daily life, and your practice begins. NAMASTE. Class will resume Tuesday, June 26 starting at 6:00 p.m. Classes are cancelled on July 17, August 21 and 28. Bring your own yoga mat and come join the fun!
HALL BOOKINGS: We love it when groups use our facilities for meetings, etc. And it’s our policy not to charge a set fee to public service groups or church groups, but we will accept donations to cover the cost of utilities. Family celebrations, wedding receptions, etc are another matter, so there’s a fee for those. Whichever the case, those groups must contact the church office to get permission and to book their dates, both to avoid conflict and to ensure the doors will be open and the heat/AC is on.
PURLS OF WISDOM: Our Prayer Shawl Ministry meets at the church on the second Thursday of each month at 10:00 am. Come join us – we are all learning. If you are interested in learning to knit or crochet, come to the meeting. There are supplies available to get you started, so bring yourself and your desire to make a difference to others. We will taking the summer off, our next meeting will be Thursday, September 13, at 10:00 a.m. Keep those knitting needles and crochet hooks busy this summer!
