St. Anne’s Episcopal Church

ANNOUNCEMENTS

June 25, 2017

 

CAUGHT IN THE ACT

Thank you to the person who trimmed the shrubs and treated the weeds on the east, west and south sides of the church building.

FAREWELL COFFEE

Please join us on Sunday, July 9 after the 10:00 am worship service as we bid farewell to Dick and Kathy Tripses.  Dick and Kathy are long-time St. Anne’s members and are relocating to the Kansas City area to be closer to family.  Please come and wish them well.   We will miss them!

LOVE LUNCHES

Love Lunches have been very popular this summer.  Approximately 40-60 persons are served Monday, Wednesday and Thursday each week. There is a need for volunteers to sign up for shifts.  This is a great way for St. Anne’s to serve the community through outreach and gets the St. Anne’s name out to the public and gives another opportunity to explain who we are.

You may make a monetary donation or purchase a package of 100% juice boxes.  Donations made be made to St. Anne’s with the notation in the memo line of “Love Lunch”.  Juice boxes may be dropped off at the church with a note attached “for Love Lunches”.  Community service hours can be earned toward a Silver Cord Award.  See Joann Olson for more details.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

St. Anne’s is partnering with Ankeny Christian Church and Ankeny UCC to provide Vacation Bible School for our children. VBS will be held at Ankeny Christian Church on July 23-27 in the evening with supper provided each day. The curriculum will be Cokesbury’s “Hero Central”.

St. Anne’s will provide supper on Thursday evening consisting of sandwiches, chips, veggies and fruit. Please consider a donation to help defray the cost of the meal, or providing an item on the menu.

Online sign up will be available soon. Hard copies of the registration form are available on the welcome table in the Fellowship space.

MOWING

Spring is here and the grass is green!  There are spots open for volunteers to mow the grass at St. Anne’s.  Sign up in the Parish Hall to keep St. Anne’s grounds beautiful.

COFFEE NEEDED

Donations of regular coffee are needed for St. Anne’s coffee hour.  Please leave the cans in the kitchen.  Thank you!

ALTAR GUILD MEMBERS NEEDED

If you can prepare the altar for Sunday worship service and clean up after the service, please contact Virginia Powell to volunteer to be a part of the St. Anne’s altar guild.

ANNE’S GARAGE SALE

If you are doing your spring cleaning, you can donate unneeded items in good condition to the St. Anne’s garage sale.  The sale will take place on June 30 and July 1.  Bring your donations to the meeting rooms on the west end of St. Anne’s. Thank you.

NEW HORIZONS NEEDS YOUR HELP

New Horizons Adult Day Center needs volunteers to help set up the dining room on M/W/F (takes about 30 minutes), to clean up after lunch on Thurs (takes about an hour) and to help with activities on Friday afternoons (2-3 hours).  Please call Vicki at 965-1602 for more details.

EPIC

Summer Camp offers an EPIC adventure for youth entering 4th – 12th grade.  St. Anne’s has several youth who would like to attend the Iowa Episcopal Summer Camp at Pictured Rocks Camp in Monticello July 24-28.  But they need your help!   The cost of the camp is $300 per camper.   Young people will experience a week of living in Christian Community with other youth and adults from around the diocese.  They will get to do crafts, sing, play games, worship, swim, and nurture their faith as they see God in creation around them.  Please consider a donation to help offset the cost of camp for our families.

Parents of campers: If you have not yet registered your youth, please go to the link listed above and complete the registration.  Camp fills up quickly.  To request financial assistance please speak with Fr. Vincent or Andi Baker.
