JOSEPH'S COAT DONATIONS
They are open for donated "seasonal" new or gently used clothing on Tuesdays and Thursdays (9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m). "The standard at Joseph’s Coat is that if we would not wear or use an item, we do not ask our guests to do so either." Other items besides clothing they can use are shoes, books for adults and children, children’s games and toys; candles; hygiene products, household items including pots and pans, sheets, blankets, towels, and etc. They do not take electronic devices, appliances, mattresses, building supplies, gas-powered equipment, or knives. If you have any items you would like to donate to Joseph’s Coat, you can bring them to the church and put them in the upstairs hallway cupboard marked "Joseph’s Coat". Kathy Thibodeau is a regular volunteer at Joseph's Coat and we appreciate her willingness to deliver our items to them in St. Paul. ~ Thank you, Kathy!!! ~

Grab a cup of coffee, tea or a glass of water and either join us for discussion in Adult Forum or just sit and visit in the Gathering Area while you enjoy some treats.  March treats are provided by the Social Concerns committee.  Thank you!

Property and Grounds will create a list of items, and we are asking for volunteers to sign up for specific item(s). This can be done at your convenience. The list will be in the office, so add your name and mark off when it’s completed. This is our church so let’s all work together to keep it in tip top shape. Thank you all in advance for volunteering your time and energy
