Deacons’ Report – June, 2012

Many thanks to all who helped so cheerfully with the Postal Service Canned Food Delivery and storage.Without your dedication, we would still be walking among cans, bottles and boxes. This is an important part of stocking the pantry shelves, and helping those who need assistance.

The summer is upon us, but the Deacons’ work will continue uninterrupted. The Food Pantry, although a little less crowded in summer than in winter, still provides a much-needed resource to our neighbors in need. In August, we will again distribute boxes of school supplies to the children of our clients. The delight on the children’s faces is a gift in itself, and reflects your generous gifts to the Deacons’ Offering. Thank you.

We have a long list of people who are regularly visited in their homes or nursing homes as well as those who are temporarily hospitalized. The care and conversation are the most important parts of the visit, and when flowers or treats are also included, it becomes a celebration. If you want to go on a visit or two, please contact Heidi Haring ( so she can let you know the schedule

May the many blessings that God provides be with you at home and on any travels planned for this summer.  We will see you in church and in the garden and will listen for your concerns as you share them with our community of Deacons.
