YARD WORK PROJECT FOR ST THOMAS Saturday, July 20, 2019
Calling all able bodied workers to help cut brush behind the preschool and church. Many hands make light work!
The winter rains and several years of growth have led to a large amount of weeds, overgrown bushes and shrubs, etc. The church is responsible for not only the area directly behind the buildings but also part way down the slope. This extra work is not included in our landscaping contract so we are trying to get as much done ourselves without incurring a large additional expense. While we may not be able to finish in one day the need to get started is CRITICAL. We need to get this cut back to help keep the homeless out and also to prevent fires, thus 2 critical needs.
When: Saturday, July 20thfor first effort Time: Meet at 7:30 am behind the preschool in the back parking lot.
Note the Preschool Rummage sale will be going on in the Narthex.
Coffee and donuts provided as well as cold water
Bring: Yourself with work gloves, boots or closed toe shoes (no sandals or flip flops). Long pants suggested. Any landscaping tools you might have such as weed eaters, rakes, hoes, strong clippers, and shovels.
A variety of tools will also be provided.
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!

Video: Presiding Bishop’s message, “Who is my neighbor?”
“Deeply embedded in the Christian faith, indeed deeply embedded in the Jewish tradition, which is the mother of the Christian faith, and deeply embedded in the faith and traditions and values of many of the world’s great religions, is a profound conviction in a sure and certain value and virtue that care for the stranger, the alien, the visitor, is a sacred duty, a sacred vow.”
The Presiding Bishop’s video message can be found here.
