ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL TO BE COMBINED FOR THE SUMMER
Adult Sunday School for the months of June, July and August will be combined this year. A different teacher will be teaching on her chosen subject each month.
Carolyn Wolff will be the teacher for June; Stephanie Behnke will teach in July; and Sandy Koziel will be the teacher in August. We will return to regular Sunday School in September.
This is an opportunity to fellowship with members of other classes and experience different teachers and their teaching style. We hope all of you plan to attend all the classes this summer. See you there!!
PAJAMAS FOR NEEDY CHILDREN
The Women's Ministry is collecting new pajamas and a book for the month of May. These pajamas will be donated to the Children's Aid Society to be given to the children/young adults who enter their care and have nothing but the clothes on their backs.
Any size from infants to 18 years old are needed, both male and female. Nightgowns and sleep shirts are also acceptable for the older girls.
In addition, a book (age appropriate) should be placed with each pair of pajamas to be given/read to the child. There is a great need to help these displaced kids and I know our congregation will not let them down. You may place your items on the table in the back of the sanctuary and we will deliver them to the Children's Aid Society. Money donations are accepted as well, and all checks should be made out to Maryellen Burker. (Please DO NOT make checks out to the WBO Church of the Brethren.) We thank you for your help in this regard.
Yours in Christ,
CHURCH WORKDAY A BIG SUCCESS
On Saturday, May 11th, you could hear the voices of men, women, and youth going about the various chores that needed to be done. Things were being completed both inside and outside of our church. Inside, the sanctuary was alive with the chatter and busy hands of 7 ladies who carefully cleaned, wiped and polished the sanctuary pews. Outside, the church was surrounded by church members and friends tackling various jobs.
There were chores like trimming the Chapel shrubs, hauling and spreading mulch and, of course, pulling weeds. Cleaning out the garage after years of neglect and buildup was a major achievement. Old pews and trash were thankfully hauled away. Also, dirt was brought in to cover the tree stumps that had been recently grinned. The dirt was put on the front lawn in various places and grass seed was planted.
The Waynesboro Church of the Brethren is truly undergoing a facelift, well overdue, and is looking better then ever! We've been besieged with water problems this year; but we are slowing gaining ground as we continue to improve and truly take care of our place of worship.
Many thanks to all the volunteers who cheerfully gave of their time to help in this important church project. Many hands certainly made for faster and lighter work and the fellowship was wonderful! Thank you!!
