HARC HIKE FOR HUNGER AND HOPE
You are invited to participate in the third annual HARC (Hagerstown Area Religious Council) Hike for Hunger and Hope. The hike is Saturday, June 13 along the Maryland section of the Appalachian Trail, ending at the Washington Monument State Park. There are different lengths of hikes offered, and your registration fee includes a t-shirt. All hikers are asked to have sponsors – all money raised at the hike benefits Micah’s Backpack and HARC.
The deadline for registration is May 24. Registration forms are available in Mary/Martha Hall and the Worship Center; go to harccoalition.org/hike for more information.
From now until June 28, we will be participating in a shoe drive to help the Community Free Clinic raise money for its patient care. All shoes donated will be given to the clinic who will earn funds based on the number of shoes that are collected. The shoes will be restored and redistributed to those in need. The clinic’s goal is to collect five tons of shoes this year. Please bring shoes to the marked boxes in Mary/Martha Hall and the Worship Center.
CELEBRATING CHILDREN AND YOUTH IN MINISTRY
On Sunday, June 14th we will have our year-end swimming party and cookout for all young people who have sung in Children’s Choir, Youth Choir, or who have served as an acolyte or crucifer this past year.
We will swim in the YMCA big pool from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. and then come to the courtyard for a cookout.
Children and youth are invited to swim – family members are asked to join us for the cookout.
We will provide hamburgers and hot dogs – please bring a dish to share!
