Please plan to attend the Parish Annual Meeting, which will be held during the 8:00 a.m. and the10:30 a.m. services on this coming Sunday, January 31, 2016. We will vote on our new Vestry members, Convention Delegates; we will receive information about the Provisional Budget for 2016, and listen to reports that highlight the ministries of 2015.
You can only vote, if you are a CONFIRMED COMMUNICANT MEMBER of Our Saviour in good standing, which means:
- Your Letter of Confirmation or Reception is at Our Saviour,
- You’ve attended Worship regularly,
- You give financially to the Parish.
WELCM is in need of the following Backpack Ministry supplies: 8 oz milk cartons (vanilla only), microwavable Chef Boy R Dee meals, and individual serving dry cereals. Please drop off donations in the designated areas in the fellowship hall (grocery cart at Grace and blue bin at ECOOS).
Little Free Library—Hints for Donating
The Little Free Library (LFL) at the Piedmont Medical Center Emergency Room has become very popular!! Thanks to all of you who have already donated books or money to buy books for this Mission and Outreach project. There are also other ways to support for you to support this project.
One way is that, when you realize that you have books to donate, you can take them directly to the LFL yourself. The LFL is very easy to find. It’s located outside, at the back of Piedmont Medical Center, to the right of the door where patients walk into the Emergency Room. You can turn into the circular driveway and park your car while you restock the LFL. For donations of this type, please check to make sure that any names or handwritten inscriptions have been erased or blackened out. This way would keep you from carrying your books to the church.
Another way to donate is to buy books when you are shopping. With the monetary donations received so far, books have been bought at Dollar Tree for $1.00 each. Books of many types, such as children’s and young adults, can be found at the Dollar Tree. If you choose to donate this way, you can either put them in the donation tub found underneath the long pew outside the parlor or you can deliver them directly to the LFL. Please choose whichever way is easier for you.
Again, thanks so much for your generosity. This Mission and Outreach project of ECOOS is impacting more lives than we’ll ever know.
