Service Opportunities this Weekend

We have three great ministry opportunities this weekend.

Saturday, May 9, 7:30 a.m.-noon:
food bank may 9Join the fun and faithful volunteers going to THE HOUSTON FOOD BANK.  Members and friends of all ages (including children as young as 8 years old accompanied by an adult) are invited to join this enthusiastic group as we perform a wonderful service, burn calories, build muscles, and make new friends all at the same time.  The group leaves the church parking lot at 7:30 a.m. and returns about noon. For more information and to RSVP, contact Justin and Yuricel.

Saturday, May 9, 9:00 a.m.-on:
benchJoin members and friends in a WORKDAY at Christ the King Church on Saturday at 9:00 a.m. to help refinish the courtyard benches. The group will work as long as needed and folks can come and go as their time permits. All refinishing materials will be provided, but volunteers should bring their own work gloves.  No prior woodworking experience necessary!  Questions?  Contact David Jurgens.

 

Sunday, May 10 after both services:
bread for the world logoWe will host a BREAD FOR THE WORLD and TEXAS IMPACT offering of letters and postcards after both Sunday services.  Please take a few moments to write a letter or postcard to our elected officials to advocate on behalf of the Childhood Nutrition Reauthorization Act and/or to urge expansion of Medicaid coverage in Texas.  Women and children are hardest hit by poverty and hunger. How fitting that we remember the world’s most vulnerable on Mother’s Day!  Information, sample letters, writing materials, and stamps will be provided.  Check out www.bread.org or http://texasimpact.org.
