The Church School is repeating their very popular spring outreach from last year, Birthday Bags for the West Chester Food Cupboard. From now until May 14, they are asking parishioners to pick up a Birthday Bag (available in the Narthex), and fill the bag with items needed for a birthday celebration - cake mix (check expiration date - must be good for at least 6 months), frosting, candles, plates, cups, napkins, etc. Bags will be collected on May 14 and delivered to the Food Cupboard. Please help the Church School help local children to have a happy birthday!
This spring, as they did last year, the Church School will help prepare the garden for planting. Last year they planted radishes. in 2016 they also decorated large clay flower pots which were planted with tomatoes, basil and peppers and placed along the walkway to the church. It was great fun for them to see the plants take off.
Fall outreach last year was once again making casseroles for the West Chester Food Cupboard and Safe Harbor in West Chester. The congregation was very generous with contributions enabling the church school to assemble and deliver many casseroles to these charities. The Church School also collected donations at Christmastime to help support a family in need.
