Dear Friends,
Once again, St. Michael’s Food Pantry is in need. To date we have 3 boxes of Mac and Cheese, 4 cans of green beans, 2 cans of peas, 3 cans of corn, 3 cans of soup and no peanut butter.
The need is great, but only be as generous as your circumstances will allow.
Your generosity is overwhelming!

Taize Prayer Service – this Tuesday, September 6 at 6:45 PM in church. COME JOIN US! - Taize is offered the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month. All are welcome!

Our second Sunday of the month Primavera Team needs a substitute to prepare a pot of chili occasionally. Please contact Joel Williams if you are able to help.
