G.I.F.T. Growing in Faith Together is a time for all ages to come together and bring your friends!. On specific Wednesday evenings this summer, we will gather together from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. here at Church to share a meal, tell a story, and spend time in fellowship activities using "An Illustrated Earth" curriculum. (The coloring posters are back!) We will hear water stories, plant and food stories, animal stories and each event will be shaped by YOU. You can also participate with these events while you are away on vacation. There are "flat earth" signs that you can take with you wherever you go this summer on vacation. Take a picture of you with your sign, and celebrate that YOU were there Celebrating God's Creation. Post your photo with the hashtag #AnIllunstratedEarth to join your picture with others across the country who are participating in the same curriculum.
The next St. Ann Food Truck Night is Thursday, July 28 at St. Ann Park, Pavilion #1, 4445 Ashby Road. Thank you to Julie Hutson for signing up to host Shepherd of the Hill's table, but we need two more people. Also, we want to use this Food Truck Night to help publicize our Book Fair on July 30. Many thanks to everyone who has helped.
We will be having a Book Fair, Bake Sale and Raffle here at Shepherd of the Hills on Saturday, July 30 from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.. Look through your books to find those you would like to donate. You can bring them to Church and can put them in the Senior High Classroom. The proceeds from the Book Fair will benefit Joni and Friends, Humanitri and The Bridge. There will also be a Bake Sale to benefit WELCA during the Book Sale. Please bring your goodies to sell. Also, the Men's Group will be serving hot dogs and chips. There will also be a raffle. There will be a Kid's Bag and an Adult Bag that will be raffled off. What a fun morning! If you have any questions, please ask Pat Amick. Her phone number is 314-551-0389. She also needs box lids and bags for purchased books. Pat does need help on Thursday and Friday (July 28 and July 29) from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.before the sale to get the books ready for the sale on Saturday. Many, many Thanks to Sarah Smith Mollin for the beautiful Flyer you made to announce the Book Sale. These flyers are on the table in the Fellowship Area.
