Remember our service project from November to Glendale Elementary School? We received a very thoughtful thank you letter from the principal of the school that was received by the Glendale New Church who forwarded it on to us. Your generosity was appreciated.
On November 1st, we will be providing a dinner meal for 12 families experiencing homelessness. These families are housed in hotels through Bethany House Services.
If you are interested in providing something, we are asked to provide 48 servings divided into 12 paper grocery bags of four servings in each, containing the following:
Paper plates, napkins and plastic cutlery
Thank you to our members who have provided financial assistance toward the meal. If you would like to help out with this meal, please contact Maggie through the church at email@example.com
Since October 1, we have been collaborating with Blue Manatee Literacy Project and Bookstore to promote a book buying endeavor. This is a unique sale in that the purchase of each book generates the donation of a book to a child staying with Bethany House Services, a child experiencing homelessness.
Please go to http://www.bluemanatee.org/bethanyhouse to purchase or donate books. Use code bethany at checkout to save 15% off your order. Books can be shipped to you, or picked up locally at Blue Manatee book store in Oakley.
This is a great and simple way to help children. Book sale ends October 10, 2021.
On August 10, 2021, we enlisted the help of our friends at Thai Terrace Restaurant in Mason, Ohio, to provide a delicious meal for half the families being housed by Bethany House Services that night. Owner and cook Gigi and her sister Lak cooked up and donated Thai fried rice w/chicken and chicken pad Thai, with Spring Rolls, adding some bottles of Coke in to boot! Our friends from church provided mandarin oranges, cookies and tableware. Together, a full meal was created. We are so happy when we can partner with our neighbors to help our neighbors.
The New Church of Montgomery does not have worship service this Sunday. If you are looking for a Swedenborgian service, please look for the link to Glendale New Church’s Sunday service, forthcoming, or visit their website: www.glendalenewchurch.org You can also attend a virtual service at one of our many sister churches.
Also, if you are interested in helping in the garden at Glendale New Church, we will be meeting this Sunday, 4/11, in the afternoon, weather permitting. If interested, contact church via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
