Games & playdough will be available after the children have finished their activities.
Kudos! Terracycle update-
As some of you are aware, our church recently began to be part of the Terracycle fundraising program. With just our small beginning, we have diverted 2,473 pieces of waste from the landfill. We stacked the boxes and they reached over 6 feet! This is a wonderful stewardship program also helps earn a little money for the church. We were able to make our minimum for the year, and the church should receive a check in July.
So... Thanks to all! Keep those items coming and we will start up again for the next cycle. Simply bring your items to the church sorting station in the front. You may find flyers there that may be easily posted at home to remind you what we can collect. In addition, to what is on the form, we may now collect - Deodorant sticks, Mouthwash containers, and corks. To find out more about Terracycle go to www.terracycle.com.
If you would like us to email you a fridge grid directly, please email Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hope in the Hills of Warren
Hope in the Hills of Warren recently became a "Community Extension of Habitat for Humanity" and was initially formed by a group of volunteers from various churches and community organizations that was created to allow youth and adult volunteers to complete minor home repairs for homeowners within our community. These repairs might be in the form of construction of wheelchair ramps, repair/replacing porches, interior/exterior painting, drywall repairs, mobile home underpinning, etc. Typically, the work is performed on the homes of elderly, low-income, and disabled folks; with all the work completed at no cost to the homeowner.
Mission Statement: Our mission, as volunteers from different Christian denominations, is to provide an opportunity to improve our community by sharing our love and skills.
