Rummage Sale News - A Food truck!
Mark your calendars - Friday, July 19 and Saturday, July 20, 2019
Please bring your unwanted treasures to the youth room downstairs in Skiles Hall. We will not be taking clothes this year, but would love to have household items, jewelry, books (no textbooks or encyclopedias, please), tools. linens, and just about anything else you could spare. Donations are tax deductible, so it’s a good time to clean out the attic and the garage!
New this Year!!! - There will be a fun and tasty addition to our ECW Rummage Sale this July. The Doggin' It Food Truck will be selling hotdogs and more, including breakfast items(!), both Friday and Saturday, July 19 & 20. Mike anticipates setting up on Thursday in time to serve lunch to any of the volunteers working that day. He generously offered to give a contribution back to Holy Cross out of his proceed.
2nd Summer Food Ministry is next Week!
The first delivery was very successful. Thank you, all! Without your donations and volunteered time organizing the shelves and delivering to the families, this ministry would not be possible. If you would like to receive emails about Summer Food Ministry, please contact Ann Gerber at email@example.com. Second delivery is Friday, June 28 for which we still need meat and eggs. Click here to pledge those foods in the amount you choose. Please note that 7 lbs. of lean ground beef are on the list, but 7 people must sign up in that slot meaning we are asking for 1 lb. from you (if you'd like to donate more, sign up for this item multiple times).
All donations for the 2nd delivery are due on the shelves no later than 5 pm next Wednesday, June 26. Remaining "food due" dates are Wednesdays, July 24 and August 14.
In an effort to continue connecting our community of Holy Cross, I'm introducing Prayer Pals!
I would like to link parishioners from the St. John’s service to parishioners from the Holy Cross service so that we can be sure to have some crossover of our community. This is an easy, fun, and active way to build our community. Like pen pals, except that instead of writing each other letters, you pray for each other. This could still involve writing notes, or meeting for a cup of coffee or tea to chat and find out more about each other. It is also a nice way to reach out to someone and find out what specific prayers are on their hearts and minds. Sharing prayer with each other is an incredible way to build relationship with one another and also with God. Sign up sheets to participate will be placed in the nave of each worship space (and in Kathy's office during the week) and then I will match people together. I look forward to seeing how this experiment goes!
A Simple Gesture
Please pick up a green recyclable grocery bag from the Choir Room. Fill it up with the items listed on the bag and return it (filled!) to the Choir Room (under the bell tables) on the date listed on the bag. Hunger and Health Coalition volunteers will pick them up. This is a very easy thing to do for the 1 in 4 children who are hungry in the High Country.
Sabbatical Through July 31: Update
A reminder that, during this time away for refreshment and spiritual renewal, Fr. Allan will not be responding to (nor checking) voicemail messages or email. All pastoral care and administrative needs should be addressed to Rev. Anna and/or Kathy Williams, Parish Administrator. Please consider offering the following prayer on Fr. Allan & Pan’s behalf during their absence: (“Prayer for Travelers” BCP p 831)
O God, our heavenly Father, whose glory fills the whole creation, and whose presence we find wherever we go: Preserve those who travel in particular Allan & Pan; surround them with your loving care; protect them from every danger; and bring them in safety to their journey's end; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
