On Sunday, February 27 and March 6, a separate offering will be collected to benefit any of our children who would like to go to camp at Waycross this summer. We are asking that you deposit your pocket change in the metal collection containers on these two Sundays.
The Waycross policy is that no child desiring to attend camp will be turned away due to financial limitations; however, because there are so many requests for scholarships, Waycross does ask that the local parish contribute in some way. Our Sunday School has been growing and we might have some of our own who would like to spend a week at our Diocesan camp and conference center. If not, the monies will be sent to Waycross to be added to the general scholarship fund.
So, what’s the big deal about metal collection containers? We want to hear a lot of noise as you support the youth in our parish and our Diocese. Of course, that green money will be gladly accepted but we’re hoping for a lot of coins so that everyone knows we are beyond our youth. If your normally deposit your weekly change in a jar where it’s just sitting around collecting dust, please consider bringing it to church the next two Sundays and dropping it into our containers to support a good cause.
And, if you’re interested in the 2011 Summer Camp schedule, there will be brochures on the table at the back of the church.
