Car Show - Join us for the 29th Annual Kena Shriners Car Club Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show on Saturday, May 28 at 1 - 5 PM in the front parking lot! Manassas City Police and Fire Station will bring their police car and fire truck, too. Children can enjoy a craft station and a Balloon giveaway. Burgers, fries, and ice cream from the ice cream truck will be available for purchase. It's a great family-friendly event — bring your friends and neighbors!
Toy Collection: The Missions Council is once again collecting toys for our Angel Shop in December. This shop serves the needy children of our community. We thought a Christmas in June collection would be easy instead of hitting you with all at once for the Christmas missions in December. Parents sign up and shop for two toys per child. We do not advertise but always serve over 100 children. We are collecting all toys in the big box labelled toys in the narthex. Dolls, trucks, cars, games, puzzles, baby toys etc. etc. etc. are all needed. Remember when buying, these may be the only toys a child gets for Christmas. You may donate the month of June up until the 26th. Thank you for your generosity. Questions? Contact Cathy Campbell ssteechur@yahoo.,com
OWLS June Outing - On Friday, June 17, (**3rd Friday instead of the 4th Friday) the OWLS will travel to Glen Echo Park to ride the Carousal. This is a repeat as we did this several years ago and channeled our inner child. Everyone had a wonderful time, thanks to Bert Kenyan, who operates the Carousal. We will meet at the church at 9:15, leaving at 9:30. Please RSVP to Marian (571-315-6881) or Lynn (709-499-0243) by June 15. We hope to take the church van but may also need to carpool. When RSVPing, please let us know if you can drive and how many you can take. Reminder, OWLS is for everyone 55 and older. Friends are always invited.
Ukraine Assistance: Many of you have asked about ways to help the incredible people of Ukraine. The Missions Council has given $2000 to this cause. If you would like to add to this, we recommend you donate to the Methodist relief Ministries/UMCOR with Advance #982450-Ukraine written on the memo line. Please mail it to: Global Ministries/UMCOR GPO, PO Box 9068, New York, NY 10087-9068. Thank you for your generosity.
