Musicians needed: 

The Praise Band can always use people who like to sing and/or play an instrument.  Particularly, if you can play bass guitar, you are needed.  They always practice and warm up Sunday mornings, 7:30 am, and usually Thursday evenings, 6:30 pm.  Talk to any band member – or show up to jam with them.  It’s not necessary to commit to every Sunday, but a couple times a month would be helpful. 

Accompanists needed for hymns and meditative prelude, offertory, postlude for the 10:30 am service.  Contact Tammy Wolfe.  Linda Creasy is available most of the time, and Donna Farver will play when she is able.  Still, the church needs volunteers and/or will pay a musician. 

 

John Buck Memorial Community Food Pantry.  Requesting donations of instant or dried potatoes.  Instant potatoes are more shelf-stable and last longer than fresh potatoes, and provide protein, fiber, and phosphorus; and when reconstituted with the milk provided by the Food Bank, are a nutritious supplement.  Carts for donations are at the front entrance of the church and the front and rear entrances of the Lighthouse. Monetary donations can be included with your regular offering.  Thank you for your continued support of this outreach project.  LUMC liaisons:  Donna Winn, Jeff Wolfe, Pastor Ron French, Carla Travelpiece.  The next food distribution is August 27th.

 

Blessings Box is being used to supply the needs of our neighbors, but our supplies are nearly non-existent.  Use the bottom basket of the shopping carts at the entrances; whatever you can give, especially:  canned meats, small bottles of toiletries (shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, etc.), or complete shelf-stable meals.  August’s request: back to school supplies (tiny bottles of hand sanitizer, regular and colored pencils, notebooks, pocketed folders, pens, pencil top and larger erasers, rulers, highlighters, post-it notes, paper clips, lunch box size reusable ice packs, etc.)
