Then feel the glow of knowing that you have shared the love of Christ by helping our neighbors in need. Any questions, contact Connie Cooper at 302-731-7595 or cjcooper15@verizon.net. Thank you!

We ask your prayers and help to purchase a gift card that could help provide a tank of gas or buy some needed grocery staples at a local store. The office is currently out of gas cards. Please give them directly to Adele Meredith, Parish Administrator, in the Parish Office or put in an envelope marked to Adele’s attention and place in the offering plate. Donations of gift cards are always welcome. Will you help?

There is a current need for folks to transport the food that has been collected over to Newark United Methodist Church. There is also a continuing need for small jars of mayonnaise, grape or strawberry jam or jelly, canned fruit, and canned tomatoes. Contributions go in the baskets as you enter the nave. The NAWC Food Cupboard also needs volunteers to distribute food at the Cupboard housed at the United Methodist Church on Main St. The Cupboard hours are from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, contact Susan Hechter susanahechter@gmail.com.

First Sunday of the month and Rector’s Discretionary Fund

posted in: Outreach | 0

This coming Sunday, August 5, is the first Sunday of the month, when the loose offering is given to the Rector’s Discretionary Fund. Cash, or a check to St. Thomas’s, with Discretionary Fund in the memo line, are welcome. Designated checks are always welcome. The Rector’s Discretionary Fund allows St. Thomas’s to provide confidential assistance to our neighbors in need. The money always goes to a landlord, power company, etc., never directly to individuals. Your generosity allows St. Thomas’s to to be a source of light to those who are struggling in a world that is often dark.

Annual Holiday Bazaar Volunteers needed

posted in: Outreach | 0

Last year our bazaar raised over $5,000, which was donated to outreach activities to help others in need. It’s time to hold the dates for the St. Thomas’s Annual Holiday Bazaar, which will be held on November 30 and December 1. If you have any wine corks or buttons that you could donate, please leave them in the donation box in the great hall. Want to volunteer to help? We need people now to make crafts — either your own idea or our ideas — and to help with the planning. We are meeting one evening each month to plan. Questions? Contact Barb Graham at 302-598-4143.
