If you can help, please contact Janet Konen at firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers will meet at the back of St. Vinny’s (by the loading dock) to pick up the food boxes.

March 28th – Combined Choir Rehearsal
Anyone interested in singing with the UCC choir for Maundy Thursday is invited to rehearse on Wednesday March 28th at 7pm at the UCC church.
March 29th – Maundy Thursday
On Maundy Thursday, rather than the ritual of foot washing being offered, worshipers are asked to bring items for “Blessing Bags” to be assembled as part of worship and shared with those in need. This will be an offering during the service that captures the spirit of Maundy Thursday, to love one another in service as Jesus did. The following items are requested:
- Tuna & Crackers packets
- Granola/Cereal bars
- Fruit snacks or applesauce cups
- Peanut Butter or Cheese cracker packs
- Feminine hygiene products
- New socks
- Travel/Trial size hygiene essentials: toothpaste/brush; shampoo; soap; deodorant; razors and shaving cream/lotion; Chap Stick; comb/brush; tissue packets.
April 1st – Easter Offering
On Easter, there will be a special offering for the summer meals program. For the past several years, our church has provided funds so that parents of summer school children can eat breakfast and/or lunch at the school with their children free of charge. If you would like to have your Easter offering go towards this project, you’ll be asked to use the envelope provided in the bulletin that day.
April 1st – EASTER BREAKFAST & Volunteers for Activities
On Easter morning, we will have Easter breakfast at 9am. There are signup sheets on the white kiosk in Fellowship Hall. Please signup for a hot dish (eggs, French toast, breakfast casserole), fruit, cheese, veggies, breads or pastries, bacon or sausage, beverages, condiments, etc. We will also need volunteers to help with setup at 8am, and then clean-up afterwards.
We are also looking for volunteers to help with the children’s activities. Please contact Yulia if you can help! ~ Yulia, email@example.com, 434-7905
