In Search of....Muscle Power!

Pastor Laura will arrive at the parsonage next week on Thursday!

Thursday, August 25
We are looking for volunteers from our parish to help unload once they get to Kindred. They will arrive with a u-haul sometime in the late afternoon on Thursday, August 25. We will tentatively plan on 5 p.m. to meet and help them, but she will update us as the day goes on. Let Marty or Jen know if you are available to help, and we can text/call you with their actual arrival time on Thursday.

We will also plan to bring a BBQ supper over for she and her husband. Let Marty or Jen know if you would like to help out with the meal. We are looking for a pan of bars and a bag of chips.

Sunday, August 28
Pastor Laura has also requested some of our strong, parish helpers on Sunday, August 28. Her parents are bringing a u-haul with some furniture and her piano in it, so they would love some help with that heavy lifting as well.

Norman Quilters

We need HELP! The Norman Quilters recently "Inherited" many boxes of fabric from a lady in Michigan (Jill Thoen's neighbor) who wants to make sure we keep busy here.

If you could lend us a hand, we are going to quilt again  Wednesday, August 3, at 9 am to about 2:30.  On the job training!  In fact, if you can thread a needle and tie a knot, you are more than qualified.

A child can do this---in fact, if your daughter (or son) would like to come and help, that would be great!  Drop them off and we'll see that they get home.

We also need people who would be willing to do some sewing for us at home---sewing blocks together--very simple stuff.

If you can help, call Elaine S. 428-3286 or Bonnie O. 428-3215.
