April and May Mission Collections
We are still collecting non-perishable food items for the New Covenant UMC Cupboard, as well as chapstick, small deodorant, and white tube socks. Individual-size food items such as cup of noodles, cheese & crackers, raisins or peanuts, tuna or chicken salad kits, and fruit cups are desired. Currently the greatest need is for canned chicken, pasta, canned pasta with meat, canned veggies, and hygiene items.
Please leave your donations in the monthly collection basket in front of the St. Francis stained glass window.
May 20: Wheels to Worship
We are celebrating bike month in Wichita with Wheels to Worship on May 20. Everyone interested, please saddle up to ride to worship on that day. Think how much gas we’ll save!
If you do ride a bike to worship, see Pastor Jordan, Emmanuel, or Gary when you get to church for something special for your effort.
June 13: Wacky Wednesdays Begin
This summer we will have three Wacky Wednesdays: June 13, June 27, and July 11. The themes this year are “Treasure Hunt”, “Games Galore”, and “Wet ‘N Wild”. Wacky Wednesdays are for all kids entering kindergarten this fall through incoming fifth graders. The program is FREE for all of the kids, and you can sign up now.
July 23-27: Vacation Bible School
Join us in July for Shipwrecked VBS–where kids discover how Jesus rescues them through life’s storms! This year’s VBS is filled with one-of-a-kind Bible-learning experiences that kids see, hear, touch, and even taste. It’s the best week of the summer! Registration begins June 3, but you can get a preview of what’s in store now.
December-January: International Mission Trip
Are you ready for some travel and adventure? Are you ready to work hard? Are you ready to help people become self-sustaining? If so, we have an opportunity for you! We are preparing to travel to the Angel House Orphanage in Tanzania, where we will work on their garden, greenhouse, and farming areas to improve their ability to produce their own food.
