In Need: Crafting Supplies

sm02 jewelry

We had a great response this summer to our jewelry table during Bonus Fridays. Adults and children gather around the table, creating bracelets and necklaces while they wait for their numbers to be called. It is an excellent time for conversation and making friends, rather than simply sitting quietly in the pews.

We are in need of supplies to continue this activity, and are looking for:

  • Beads
  • Findings
  • Stringing supplies

Food & Fund Drive
July 1-August 7


Kate Manthey (left with her boys) is a realtor in South Minneapolis. She decided to make a difference in her community. “I wanted to give back by conducting a food drive.”

She took the CES Food Drive list (online), wrote a quick note about herself and what she was doing, and attached it to grocery bags which she passed out to her neighbors. A week later she collected 48 lbs. of food for CES.

Way to go!
