Feel free to bring any and all GOOD / WORKING items and household goods, GENTLY USED clothing & accessories, toys, books, furniture etc. to the FLC now thru Friday July 31st. The earlier in the week you have items to the FLC, the easier it will be on those setting up and managing the event.

Who can donate? – EVERYONE! Who can take advantage of the items being offered? – EVERYONE! There is no charge for anything. Just come that morning – August 6th – and take what you like or need. If you would like to assist with preparation for the sale or need more information, contact Kathy Hudson – 812-779-2058.

PANTRY SUNDAY: August 7 is Pantry Sunday… each Communion Sunday [1st Sunday of the month] we ask that you bring canned goods and non-perishable items [especially canned meats and/or box dinners] with you and place them in the collection container near the front doors for the Patoka Food Pantry. CURRENT NEEDS: BOXED: Brownies, Chocolate Icing, Oatmeal, Pancake Mix (and Syrup), Spaghetti; CANNED: Beef Broth, Chicken & Dumplings, Cream of Mushroom Soup, Fruit, Fruit Cups, Meats (Chicken, Spam, Treet, Tuna), Sausage Gravy; DRINKS: Fruit Juice, Kool-aid Mix (or equivalent), Lemonade Mix, Tomato Juice; STAPLES: Ketchup, Mayo/Miracle Whip, Mustard, Ranch Dressing, etc.; MISCELLANEOUS: Grape Jelly; TOILETRIES: Dishwashing Soap, Laundry Detergent, and Men and Women’s Deodorant
We are fed by Jesus Christ on Communion Sunday, therefore we need to feed others. Items which always come in handy [and cannot be purchased with food stamps]: soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, dish soap, deodorant, paper towels, toilet paper, toothpaste.

SCHOOL BEGINS Tuesday, August 9th. Please pray for our students, teachers, faculty & staff for a safe & productive school year!
PRAYER SPONSORS – if you have been (or have never been) and would like to be a prayer sponsor for our youth throughout the school year, please notify Darla Meyer Smith or Lisa Meyer right away. All it requires is doing just what it sounds like… pray regularly for the youth whose name you will be given, and if you choose to, remember them with cards, notes & small gifts on special occasions or ‘just because’ to encourage and uplift them. We will not assume that because you were a prayer sponsor last year you automatically wish to be one this year, so please let Darla or Lisa know.
COLLEGE ADDRESSES NEEDED – We would also love to stay better in touch with our college students, so we’re asking for new and updated addresses for those students. If you’d like to include phone #s, emails, birthdays, etc., that would be fantastic! When all addresses are turned in we will post a permanent list on the bulletin board.

RIDE TO THE CROSS – sponsored by the Rolling Disciples motorcycle ministry of First General Baptist Church in Princeton – is scheduled for Saturday, August 13th, and you are invited!! Some of you may have seen or read about the “Cross at the Crossroads” in Effingham, Illinois, soaring nearly 200 feet into the Midwestern sky, a landmark for over 19 million travelers who each year pass thru Effingham on Interstates 57 & 70. All are welcome – whether by bike or by car, leaving FGBC at 9:00am that day. After visiting the cross there’s lunch at Niemerg’s Family Diner. If you plan to dine with the group please notify the church by August 7th so that reservations can be finalized. For more info contact Pastor Spencer Gaines at 812-385-5410.

CASH FOR CLASS: It’s that time… United Methodist Youth Home’s “Cash for Class” campaign is in full swing with kids returning to school in just a couple of weeks, and they need your help! Cash For Class is designed to help at-risk youth through your sponsorship at whatever level you might choose. Suggested sponsorships range from $50 for “scholar”-1 online test enrollment fee, to $323 “teacher’s pet”-uniforms for 2 youth, school supplies & fees for 1, with various levels in between, or even a one-time gift of ANY amount. For more information about sponsorship levels and the Cash For Class program, pick up a flyer/donation form from Melissa in the church office.
Another opportunity to support the efforts of United Methodist Youth Home will take place on Monday, August 29th with “Hacienda Gives Back Night”. Just take a photo of the token (available in the church office) with your phone and show it to your waiter at the Hacienda on South Green River Road in Evansville. A portion of all tickets that show a token that day will go to United Methodist Youth Home. If you plan to be in Evansville and enjoy dinner at Hacienda on the 29th, stop and see Melissa in the church office for a fundraiser token.

OPPORTUNITY FOR HISTORY BUFFS… David Hudson, current PUMC Historian, has asked for assistance in updating the church’s history. David has a great deal of information to organize and coordinate and would appreciate help with the task. If you might have some free time and are interested in assisting as Church Historian, or even just on this project, contact David at 812-779-5235.
