Barb Kuzins sends a THANK YOU to everyone who donated items, volunteered, and bought items to help support Craft Sales. After setting aside money to cover booth fees for 2017, we still have $610 to share amongst Sunday School, Outreach, and Altar Guild.
Let’s keep the momentum going. Please consider cleaning out your homes in order to donate items for us to sell.
Today we observed Scout Sunday at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. During the service, Deacon Brad Allard asked Assistant Scout Master Owen Smith, two Boy Scouts, and a Cub Scout of Troop 250 to the altar. Troop 250 of Byron Center
, Michigan was represented by Magnus Smith, Nolan Smith, and Grayson Smith.
The Boy Scouts of America annually celebrates its founding on February 8, 1910, based on the program started by Lord Baden Powell in England on August 1, 1907. Scout Sunday was added to the Scout celebration in the middle 1940s. Scout Sunday is always the Sunday preceding February 8, unless February 8 is a Sunday. Then February 8 would be Scout Sunday.
The Scout Sunday tradition was started to make people in houses of worship aware of Scouting and to allow Scouts to live out their “Duty to God” pledged each week. The Scout Law says that a “Scout is Reverent” and that Scouts of all ages promise to do their “Duty to God”. These values strengthen youth character in their family, community and faith.
On the small table in the entry area there is a canister for donations toward the cost of another food truck. The cost for a truck is $500.00 and that will provide an average of 2 1/2 tons of food for the needy.
