Sunday, May 10 announcements
Please join us for “Muffins for Moms” or Grandmas, or aunties. . . or for the special women who supports you in life, for refreshments after church today in the fellowship hall. “Many women do noble things but you surpass them all”. ~ Proverbs 21:29
We are collecting food items to be distributed to students at Riverbend Elementary. This provides weekend food for those who receive free school breakfast and lunch during the week. We could use: single serving cup mac & cheese, Chef Boyardee, pop-top soup, and fresh fruit. If you can donate money, please label it “Weekend food program.” We pack up over 60 food bags on Thursdays at 10 AM if anyone would like to help. Thank you.
A delegation of 4 young people (Summer Putman, Liz Kell, Magen Boegli, and Lacey Davis) are going with Melissa to the Gather at the River conference in San Antonio, August 6-9 to learn about LGBTQIA outreach and join the new reconciling youth movement. We need your help with the costs: we still need about $2,500.00. Here are some ways you can help: (1) Donate Alaska Air miles, (2) Donate financially (Make the check to your church, memo: Gather at the River-Youth), and (3) Pray for us before, during, and after the event. Please contact Melissa if you are able to donate or pray at Pastor.Engel.AK@gmail.com.
Safe Sanctuary Training Slated for next Saturday, May 16, 10-11:30. Please join us for discussion and brunch! We will explore how to keep our church safe for children, youth, vulnerable adults, and everyone. If you volunteer for the summer lunch program, teach Sunday School, volunteer with youth, or may now or in the future work with children, youth, or vulnerable adults, this is for you!
CPM is in need of NLUC talent for the following items:
Manse – we have ordered new windows to replace the old and sometimes single pane windows. We can either install these with NLUC volunteers or pay the Contractor to install them. If you have an interest and/or expertise and are willing to install these please contact either Nico Bus, or John Norman. The expected delivery is in six weeks – towards the end of June. A great opportunity to save the Church some money!
Sanctuary – several members have expressed interest in replacing the lighting in the Sanctuary and upgrade the projection system. If you are interested in either participating or leading this project please contact Nico Bus.
Choir/stage area – in order to obtain better utilization of the front of the Sanctuary several members have asked this area to be redesigned. Some years ago some work was done and we would like to see what the membership would like to see done here. If you are interested in participating in a work group, or if you want to lead this redesign please contact Nico Bus at 789-3718 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Saturday, May 16 is “Camp Get Ready!” We will get Eagle River United
Methodist Camp in shape for the summer season. Cleaning and repairs inside and out. For a list of jobs, see the bulletin board in the Fellowship Hall and plan to join us (mile 28 out the road) to lend a hand. Lunch will be provided.
