NEXT BLOOD DRIVE SEPTEMBER 29

Miller Keystone will be here at St. Anne’s to collect blood on Saturday, September 29th from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. The signup sheet is now on the table below the Outreach bulletin board in the parish hall. Remember we need to have 20 to make sure MK will come to us. Sign up early to make sure you get the slot you are looking for.

Additionally, if you enter your data on line or if you are giving blood at a Miller Keystone location at times other than our blood drives please make use of St. Anne’s group number which is 0681. This way St. Anne’s will receive credit which benefits not only you but the rest of the congregation as well.

Thanks for giving the gift of life!

 

NEXT DAYBREAK OPPORTUNITY

Monday, September 17, 2018

Another exciting Daybreak volunteer opportunity is planned for Monday, September 17, 2018.  I have lost track of how many years St. Anne’s has been preparing meals for Daybreak (which is part of Lehigh County Conference of Churches), but I do know that getting to meet and serve some very wonderful people continues to be a true blessing.

As usual, we will need bakers and preparers/servers.  St Anne’s bakers always make amazingly sweet delights that are reported to be the absolute best of the best!  Our preparers/servers are an astonishing culinary team who are also reported to be the absolute best of the best!

Please consider signing up as a baker or a preparer/server.  A sign-up sheet can be found in the parish hall.  Please contact Nancy Gordon if you have any questions.

Giving is always a joyous experience!

Daybreak is a Lehigh County Conference of Churches program that reaches out to individuals who are active in or have  successfully completed treatment for mental health, HIV/AIDS, and/or drug/alcohol abuse. The program provides life skills training, talk time, membership, and 3 meals daily.

CELL PHONES FOR SOLDIERS ….ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL OUTREACH AIDED BY OUR NEW ELECTRONIC SIGN!

We recently sent 178 cell phones to Cell Phones for Soldiers which is triple the number of phones we normally collect over a similar period of time. Each of these phones will either be refurbished for use by our military families or the precious metals from the phones are reclaimed and sold to provide monies for phone minutes for these families. So, while we all pass the box each time we enter the church it is easy to forget what a simple way to support our military families this is. When discarding your old cell phones please remember the cell phone box.

Now, thanks to our new electronic sign, we have many additional folks stopping by our door to drop off their phones joining in our ministry along with your efforts. Who knows … they may even decide to find out what St. Anne’s is all about. Evangelizing without knocking on a single door as we have people knocking on our door instead. Evangelism and Outreach all at one time. With Our Lord’s support how could it be any better than that!
