Project Backpack for Roosevelt Elementary

Supplies we need include #2 yellow Ticonderaga pencils, colored pancils, child size Fiskars scissors, 24 count crayons, 8 count Crayola markers, and BACKPACKS!
Look for the food donation board and take a sticky or two off and bring the item in by Aug. 9.
Good Shepherd Summer Grill-Out and Pie and Ice Cream Social
Join us on Tuesday, July 26 from 5 to 7 p.m., using our new pavilion (rain or shine).
We will be serving hamburgers, hotdogs, baked beans, coleslaw, chips, lemonade, coffee and for dessert, we will have our featured “Pie and Ice Cream.” New this year, we will be taking goodwill donations for the meal and the proceeds from this event will be used for pavilion enhancements. We will have several activities going on throughout the night to keep the kids occupied while you enjoy your dessert and spending time with friends and family.
We could use additional help from you to make this fundraiser a success. Please see our sign-up outside the sanctuary to see how you can help out. We will need help setting up during that day, plus help during the event, as well as needing all of the great pie bakers to “get your aprons on” and bake up your yummy pies.

Shepherd’s Closet will be open Wednesday, Aug. 10 from 10 a.m. -5:30 p.m.
