PINSWords from Will!

Rev. Will Vaus
We had a wonderful Ministry Fair last Sunday with over 45 people signing up for one or more ministries in which they want to be involved in the church. If you missed the Ministry Fair and would like to sign up for a ministry, please consider the list of ministries below and let me know of your interest by email (will@stowechurch.org) or phone (802-999-7634).
“Church Planting” may or may not be a term you have ever heard of before. What does it look like to plant a church? What are the essential ingredients involved? Those are two questions I will be seeking to answer this Sunday at 9:30 am in our Celebration Service as we look at Paul and Barnabas’ continuing missionary endeavors as recorded in Acts 14.

VolunteersBible Camp Pasta Dinner on June 23rd!

Stowe Bible Camp 2016We will be joining Blessed Sacrament and St. John’s again for our Bible Camp to be held June 20-24, 2016 at Blessed Sacrament Church. Our theme this year is Deep Sea Discovery and learning that God is with us wherever we go.

On Thursday, June 23rd, the students in our Outreach Program will be hosting a Pasta Dinner at Stowe Community Church from 5:30-7:30PM. The cost will be $10 for adults/$5 for children 12 and under. The proceeds from this dinner will go to the Ziegler family to help with Tim’s ongoing medical expenses.

We would be grateful if you could help us with food donations for the dinner. We will need:

-packages of shredded mozzarella cheese

-fruit salads
-loaves of french bread

-tubs of butter
-pies (fruit, nut, cream pies)

Please bring your donations to the church kitchen on Thursday, June 23rd by 10AM. We greatly appreciate your help.

NoonMusicOpportunities to Serve the Church

  1. Please note the PayPal Donate link in the header of this e-mail. Click on that link to make a secure donation to the Stowe Community Church.
  2. Please sign up to usher.  The sheet is on the table in the Narthex by the front door.
  3. Offerings of both food and money for our local food shelf can be placed in the box located in the narthex anytime. As part of our offering time, the grocery cart will be pushed through the aisles, as we to receive your special contributions to help fight hunger in our community. There are many hunger people in our community, especially children.  Please help!
  4. The Community Emergency Aid committee thanks all who put donations in the basket in the narthex.  We have many requests for help such as back rent, fuel, electricity bills, food, and car gas.  The church does budget $3,000 a year to help with this, but it does not cover all the requests. We do suggest people contact other churches and other organizations such as Community Action, Lamoille Family Center, and United Way.  Many times they have already contacted those places but they either can not help them or have given them something toward their need.
  5. Would you like to provide the flowers on the communion table on a certain Sunday in remembrance of a loved one or in honor of someone? Just let Marylou know what week you would like to do that and let her know what you want printed in the bulletin.  The cost of the arrangements is $25. Make a check payable to Stowe Community Church and put flowers on the memo line. If you want a larger arrangement, Marylou can order it for you.
  6. Don’t forget to donate your empty ink cartridges (helps us buy paper) and donate your no longer needed eyeglasses (helps people in third world countries who have no glasses) to the Church..
