Faithful Women of Good Hope
Serving God and Others
Brief Announcements June 13, 2021 The altar flowers are given in honor of Bettie and Gene Luidhardt's 49th wedding anniversary and granddaughter Paige's 14th birthday by Gene and Bettie Luidhardt. Please note: the blessing for the Sending of Home Communion has been moved to June 27 at both services. Please save plastic store bags for WELCA. We’ll be cutting them into strips and crocheting them into sleeping mats for some of our homeless neighbors. Please don’t crumple the bags into wads; store them flat or folded. Put them into our WELCA cupboard in the narthex or drop them off in the church office. We’ll be using them on Monday, July 12, the day of our “July Picnic.” Gals, mark this date on your calendars so you don’t forget to attend. There will be one service only on July 4 at 9 A.M. Outdoor Communion will be offered on July 7 at noon. BORN is having a (fundraiser) garage sale on July 9 and 10 at the First Alliance Church, Bucyrus. Good Hope will be participating. Contributions and volunteer help to set up and “sell” will be needed. More details are available in the June Steeple Notes. If you have any questions, please contact Linda Bean. BORN needs travel size mouth wash for the comfort packs they give out. There is a bin in the narthex for donations. Thank you!
Congratulations to David and Bonnie Wolfe on the birth of their granddaughter, Chloe Marlee Anne Wolfe on June 8. Save the date for VBS 2021! VBS will be held on August 1-2, 8-9 and 15-16 from 6-8 PM at Good Hope. Thank you for your support of Good Hope Christian Preschool with prayers and monetary support, especially the offering from Good Friday service. Due to decreased enrollment, we will be having classes in the morning. The director will be spending her afternoons working on funding for preschool through grants; fund-raising; communications with parents and community; ordering supplies; meeting the requirements of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services; dealing with emergencies; arranging special programs and events; COVID implementations; preparing staff and parent handbooks; exploring how preschool will “look” next year. -Preschool Board Many thanks for the gift(s) . . . in memory of Guenter Greilich to the Stained Glass Window Fund by Dorie Gubernath.
