There will be a training session facilitated by Priest Angela on Saturday, September 15th from 9:00 am until 11:00 am. This is an excellent opportunity for service and giving to your church.

While some people build houses more of us can gather furniture, furnishings, yard equipment, books, and ordinary yard and household items for re-sale at the HabiStore. Watch the newsletter for more details. If you are interested in helping to coordinate this event, please contact Priest Angela.

WISH LIST FOR THE WOMBLE LIBRARY ~ this is a work in progress. We HAVE a seamstress to sew the room darkening drapes for the windows. We still would like sheers to cover the windows when the drapes are open; a rug for the floor; a computer, the library has an Internet connection available. Stop by and see the progress. We are striving to make the library a quiet place to read, hold meetings and in general make it a more warm and welcoming useful addition to the facilities at St. Michaels.
