REMINDER

“The Foley CROSS Center is always in need of evening volunteers.  If you would like to volunteer helping distribute food or organizing donations such as clothing, etc. the center would love to see you.  Volunteer evening hours are every Monday from 6pm – 8pm.  If you are interested, simply park behind the center and knock on the back, green doors.  Someone will open the door and let you in. Then you will be training on the job.  The staff at the Center is great to work with and truly appreciate your time volunteering.”

 

Thank you, The Deacons

THANK YOU FROM VBS

Thanks to everyone for all the donations received from both Maywood Covenant and 1st Presbyterian churches! Thanks for all the food that was donated, thanks to sending your children, thanks for the extra monetary donations and thanks for the many prayers for us leading the VBS program. We had a very successful week reaching out to many kids from our community as well as churches! We had a total of 44 kids in attendance! We asked “more” of our congregation and we got it!

 

VBS Staff 2018

 

In addition, we are always looking for additional volunteers to continue this great outreach program. If you are interested in helping, decorating, decorating ahead of time, teaching or leading VBS for 2019, please contact Melody. This is an awesome ministry and we have always had awesome people involved with VBS. It really does take a village to make this VBS successful. Plus, it’s FUN! 

 

Thank-you!
