World Service Update
The World Service Committee’s upcoming activities will include:
1) Preparation of 200 sandwiches for the FLIP (Free Lunch in the Park) program on Sat., Oct 13th at 9:30am in the Parish House. All members and friends of the church are invited to work with the WSC for this great cause while having a lot of fun!
2) Starting at 9:30am on Sun., Oct 14th the WSC, in conjunction with the N.Y. Blood Bank, will host a community wide blood drive in the Community House Gym. Our goal is forty pints of blood. Blood is in short supply and every drop is critical.
3) Hunger is present here in Queens, although many of us live in abundance. Your World Service Committee provides an on-going grocery donation basket in the narthex of our church. We will be adding a once-a-month food drive table outside in front of our church. In June, The Church-in-the-Gardens will work with other local churches and synagogues to conduct an annual Food Drive for the benefit of the Queens Federation of Churches’ Jamaica food pantry.
Please continue to bring your donations of food when you come to church on Sundays.
