Faith Lutheran Church Women
are hosting a Clothing and Textile Drive!
Start collecting from family, friends, neighbors... TODAY!!
We all have unwanted textiles* that are worn out, or no longer fit. Instead of throwing into the trash where they'll simply add to our nation's growing landfills, give your clothes a second life by participating in our textile collection drive!
Items may be dropped off at Faith from now until August 10. Please leave them in the Narthex in the area clearly marked "CFC". THANK YOU!
*Textiles include: CLOTHING: new, out of fashion, not needed, or no longer fit etc... SHOES paired only. TOWELS, STUFFED ANIMALS, HATS, SHEETS, BLANKETS, QUILTS, BEDSPREADS, DRAPES, PURSES, BELTS... All items must be dry and clean.
We cannot take glass, breakables, electronics, pet beds, bed pillows, carpeting, uniforms, mattresses, hotel linens, or items previously for sale in a thrift store. Contact Julie Pierce for more information.
PUTTING OUT THE WELCOME MAT!
Sunday, June 19
We'll use chalk paint and chalk sticks to doozy up the sidewalks leading to church with colorful art by all ages. There will be spots for our youngest artists to create their welcome pieces and have a huge expanse for everyone to add their creative pieces leading the way to the doors of the church! In the event of rain, we'll have great ways to create art indoors. Have you ever painted with nylons? Or used a spray bottle to make a piece of art? Well, should it rain, we'll create our own rain clouds and much, much more and save our outdoor activity for another sunny day.
Don't miss this fun event. We'll start the summer activities off with a burst of color!
CREATION, DAY TWO:
Sunday, June 26
Let the art begin!
Can't make it to the Creation Station on Saturday, the 25th? Well, we decided to continue the fun with recycle art on Sunday. Join us after coffee hour in the social hall for the second in our summer series of fun events after summer service! Several different crafts, and as always, we've considered something fun for the youngest to the oldest.
