Back to School Prep
My Christian Brothers and Sisters,
Greetings. As we approach and prepare for the reopening of the 2019 school year, I wish all of us God's blessings and protections for our children in those buildings and playgrounds where we will not be present, but He will surely be there for them.
Finally, please remember our 2020 mission to Liberia. We need your prayers and support. We are also collecting school supplies which you can see in the list below. May God bless us all.
SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR EES/EHS IN LIBERIA
The Episcopal Elementary School and the Episcopal High School that Christ Church sponsors in Liberia are in need of school supplies for their students. So when you are shopping for our children's back to school supplies, please purchase some extra items to be sent to the EES & EHS Schools in Liberia.
Needed items are:
Loose leaf paper
Notebooks (composition, one subject, 5 subject)
Reading books for all ages
For more information, please contact Bill Sherman.
Autumn Basket Auction: Please Consider Donating!
Alleida Mitchell, our amazing fundraising head, is running a basket auction (previously called a Chinese auction) on the evening of Friday, October 18, from 6 to 10 pm.
The last time we held one was 2010, and it was successful and relatively easy to put on. A basket auction is similar to the raffles we've had at the Spring Fair and St. Nick's Fair, except that many more items are available. People buy tickets for various categories of items, then put their tickets in buckets in front of each basket or item that interests them. At the end of the night, a church representative pulls the tickets and the winners take home the items. Food, soft drinks, and alcoholic beverages are also available. Children under 12 aren't admitted.
We need your help
To keep costs down, the wardens and Alleida would like to invite you to donate new items for the baskets. Here are the categories and the items we need for each one.
You'll see that some items are cheap and others expensive, but you can also donate cash that Alleida will use to buy high-ticket items. Please make checks out to Christ Church New Brighton and put "Basket Auction" in the memo.
