October 13-14 in Seville
The quilts from POP will be displayed and blessed Sunday, October 7th. Jean would like help after worship September 30th to bring the quilts into the sanctuary and help display them. Then on the 7th after worship it would be good if people could fold up the quilts and pack them in boxes waiting in the narthex. The quilts, health kits and school kits will be delivered to Seville, Ohio (thank you Fritz and Karen Poese!) then go on to New Windsor. Thanks to all the quilters and all who donate to the kits.
If you would like to make a Servant Week Outing to LWR headquarters in Windsor MD you can join a group going for October 14-17. Jean Bolinger can help you connect with Terry Wentworth of Emmanuel LC to make all the arrangements.
For ten years the Bollinger’s of POP planned special events on or near that special day, including the Rise Against Hunger event last year. This year we are asking that each of you promote the International Day of Peace in your own way. We have posters for you to take to your workplace, your doctor’s office, or any place where they can be displayed. We also have bulletin inserts that you can give to friends. The International Day of Peace will be celebrated all over the world. Let Peace begin with each of us in our homes, schools, places of work, clubs, community, and our world. Peace on Earth Begins With Me.
