Upcoming August News & Events
*August 10-15-Sr. High Youth Mission Trip: The Sr. High Youth are heading to Missoula, Montana August 10-15. They will be working with several different non-profits within the community such as: Family Promise, Povorello Center, Garden City Harvest, Missoula Food Bank and Missoula Parks and Recreation. If you are interested in making a donation to the trip or would like to know how you can help please talk to Kristy and check out the “Mission Trip Wish List” down below.
*August 20 & 21-Operation School Supplies: Forest Grove School District sponsors a school supply drive every year to collect backpacks and supplies for our needy students. Our goal is to make sure every student has a backpack filled with the appropriate school supplies needed to start the year. We are looking for volunteers to help out at two work parties. The first will be on Wednesday, Aug. 20 from 9 a.m. until noon to organize all of the donations. The second will be on Thursday, Aug. 21 to fill the backpacks and get ready to distribute to the schools. Both work parties will be at our Taylor Way warehouse, 2701 Taylor Way (just down the street from the National Guard Armory). If any of your congregation members are looking for a fun volunteer opportunity, we would appreciate their help. Please have them email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know which days they can help.
