Collect school items for Church World Service

Keep an eye out for sales on back to school items and pick up some extra school supplies so we can create school kits for Church World Service in the fall. Items needed include 70 page spiral notebooks, pencils, hand-held pencil sharpeners, rulers, blunt scissors, and boxes of 24 crayons. You can put them in the plastic tub in the Missions Corner. We will also need plain cloth bags with handles, 12" x 14" to 14" x 17". If you sew and would like to make some bags out of sturdy cotton fabric in kid-friendly designs, you can find a pattern on the CWS website. Go to and click on the link for "kits."
