UPCOMING MISSION ROAD CONGREGATION EVENTS
Wednesday morning at 10:30 a few women are planning to meet at the church to clean & sanitize the toys from the nursery. If you can join them please schedule some time on Wednesday morning. Troy plans to finish cleaning the carpet on Thursday morning. After the carpets have been cleaned we need a crew to help put the furniture back in the classrooms. Please, call Larry (913-488-9235) about when you can help with moving furniture and toys back into the nursery and classrooms. Thank you for your support.
A big THANK YOU to all those that helped move the furniture and toys so the carpets could get cleaned. Many helping hands make a big task much smaller.
SPRING WORSHIP SERVICE AVAILIBILTY FORMS!
Please fill out your availability sheet and get it back to Pam O’Neal as soon as possible. Pam & Caryn want to get the schedule completed as soon as they can to get the schedule out to those serving in March. Failure to fill out an availability form opens the possibility of being placed on the schedule. So it’s important to let them know when you are not available to serve.
THANKS FOR YOUR SHOES; SOCKS NEEDED NOW!
Alex White has delivered all the collected shoes to the Osage City High School for student use. We’re now collecting socks! Please bring your donations of new or used (but still useful) socks to church.
SCHOOL SUPPLIES NEEDED NOW!
The second semester of school has begun and once again, students face the need for notebooks, pencils, paper, erasers, markers and all the traditional school items. As you start the New Year, please remember to pick up a few school related items for the January School Supplies Drive! Bring your donations to the church and leave on the table in the Narthex. Remember paper supplies are also needed. We were reminded that toilet paper is an important item that is needed.
