The CWF service project for May is Blankets for the World. Everyone is invited to contribute $5.00 in honor or memory of a mother or other special person in our life. The contributions will be sent to Church World Service and will be used in their Blankets program to provide blankets in crisis situations around the world. Donations may be given to Dale Harris. There's a form available at church that you can use to indicate the person you are honoring.
Marion Johnson passed into her heavenly home in the early morning of Saturday, April 13. We'll miss you, Marion.
There was a Service in Loving Memory of Marion Johnson on Friday, May 3, at 11:30 AM in the church sanctuary. A reception followed the service. Interment took place at Philadelphia Memorial Park in Malvern at 10:00 AM (before the memorial service).
In lieu of flowers, donations can be given to Marple Christian Church or the American Diabetes Association.
Come have a good hot breakfast on the first and third Wednesday mornings each month! Totally free! 8:30-10:30 AM (unless the weather is treacherous or our main cook is away — check our calendar).
The next free breakfast is June 5.
We always have scrambled eggs and bacon and/or sausage, and hash browns. The buffet table has boxes of cereal, orange juice, coffee, decaf coffee, hot water with tea bags, and cream & sugar. Sometimes we also have pancakes with syrup. The front door is open at 8:00 AM and the hot food is usually ready around 8:30. We serve until 10:30. Come sit awhile and have a good breakfast! All are welcome!
We collect non-perishable food and household supplies for our community food bank, St. Mark's Food Center. We can leave them outside the pastor's office.
The Food Center always needs soup, pasta, and pasta sauce.
