HAZELWOOD COMMUNITY GARDEN

Congratulations to Don and Cheryll Crose, recipients of the “Golden Cultivator Award” for all the hours devoted to planting, weeding, harvesting, and donating produce from the Hazelwood Community Garden. Well done!

Want to enjoy some fresh air, modest exercise, and convivial conversation while doing a worthwhile task? We are about to start the 3rd year of our Hazelwood Community Garden. We need people to help plant or weed or water or harvest or take produce to non-profit partners that provide food for the hungry. If interested, please see a Garden Team member: Shirley Bookout, Cheryll Crose, Don Crose, Jeff Heavilon, Jason Jones, Glen Sulanke, or Ann Wolfe.

WINNIE’S KIDS

Through May 19, we will be accepting donations to help ‘Winnie’s Kids’ in Kenya. Each donation received will be matched, up to a total of $1,000, from the Missions & Benevolence Sulanke Trust. Please mark all contributions ‘Winnie’s Kids,’ place it in either a red-bordered envelope or envelope from the worship chairs in the Sanctuary, and add it to the offering plate during Sunday morning worship (if writing a check, it would greatly help our bookkeeper if you write a separate check from your regular offering). We will present Winnie with our offering on Sunday, May 26. There are great needs in Kenya, so please prayerfully consider how you can help ‘Winnie’s Kids.’

 

HAZELWOOD ANGELS

Thanks to the following volunteers who helped with Christian Ministries Food Pantry on either May 8, 9, or 10: Don & Cheryll Crose, Stephanie Farra, Jay & Mary Ann Matchett, and Dick & Marcia Miller.

 

CONGREGATIONAL CIRCLE GATHERING

As I shared with you a month ago, we’re in a discernment process where we’re doing our best to discern what it means to have a preschool as a part of our congregation. We wanted a way we can talk faithfully together as a church about what it means to have a preschool, and so we’re hosting a Congregational Circle Gathering on May 19, after Coffee Fellowship. We’ll gather in Cartwright Hall. This is a chance for us to listen to one another as we continue to discern what it means to have a preschool as a part of our church ministry. We’ll listen openly and lovingly to one another and do our best to hear God’s voice in the midst of our listening. I hope you can come on the 19th for this special gathering.
