Loaves and Fish

For Sunday, July 8, we are inviting the congregation to bring cereal and shelf stable milk for our Loaves and Fishes ministry.  These will be offered to our Neighbors Table guests on July 15.

Parish Event Group

At All Saints’ we occasionally all get together to enjoy special celebrations: sometimes we gather on Holidays, or on the significant Sundays that mark the season of the Church year; sometimes we have a party just to eat and visit and simply take pleasure in each other’s company as we mark noteworthy events in the life of our Parish and our members.
Vestry member Ricki Duffee and Don Hill are organizing a committee to help plan and host these events: If you would like to be a part of their special “Parish Events Group” please notify the office or let a vestry member know you would like to help.
It will be a group with very few meetings, and lots of fun and fellowship.

Pill Bottle Donations

Please save your empty pill bottles and bring to the church.  Look for a box in Shoemaker hall.  Matthew 25: Ministries accepts donations of empty plastic pill bottles for inclusion in shipments of medical supplies and for shredding and recycling. Our pill bottle program fulfills the dual needs of improving medical care in developing countries and caring for our environment.
Acceptable collection items include:
  •   Prescription and over-the-counter pill bottles
  •   Large and small pill bottles
  •   Pill Bottles with and without secure caps (child resistant)
Pill bottles that are not appropriate to include with shipments of medical supplies are recycled for cash that goes towards Matthew 25: Ministries’ programs. If you wish to prepare bottles for shipment rather than recycling, please adhere to the following guidelines:
  •   Bottles included in shipments of medical supplies must have an all plastic lid.
  •   Sort bottles by color and type.
  •   Remove labels, leaving no glue or residue.
  •   Wash bottles in very hot water and dish soap.
  •   Rinse and dry thoroughly.
  •   Replace lids on clean, dried bottles.
  •   Place clean, recapped bottles in large ziplock bags marked “Clean Bottles.” These will be blended with medical supplies.
