Clothing Drive for Cradles to Crayons (C2C).  Leading up to our service day at C2C on September 29, we are sponsoring a ‘ready for school’ clothing drive. C2C’s clothing donations are lowest at this time of year when needy families are most in need of school clothes.  So please bring in your new and gently used (no rips or stains) clothing in sizes 0-20.  Shoes accepted too.  Or buy some new underwear and socks to contribute.  A donation box is located at church through September 28. And don’t forget to mark your calendar for 10:00 a.m.noon on September 29 for our morning at C2C. Contact Kathy ([email protected]) with questions.

We should have rides available even for kids who come without parents.
Please invite your friends!  Rain date is Sunday, October 9.
