Thank you for cookie deliveries

Posted May 15th, 2010

Thank you to Bonnie and Dave Fruth, John and Maxine Miller, and Miriam Hoover who provided cookies to deliver to the nearly 80 McPherson and Central Christian College students who have agreed to have contact with our congregation during this year.  The Senior High Youth have packaged those and they are being delivered before exams with a note attached thanking the students for their presence in McPherson, and to stay in touch with our congregation over the summer via our website, on Facebook, or by text messages.  We also expressed our hope to see them again next Fall.

This year cookies have been delivered to these college students on four different occasions, each time packaged by either the Junior or Senior High youth.  That’s nearly 1600 cookies!  Thanks to the congregation for their cookie donations to support these college students, and for supporting this service project of the youth group.

Advocates Needed for Elderly

Posted February 22nd, 2010

Persons interested in “being there” for an elder who doesn’t have family or friends nearby may wish to join the new Advocates/Friends group at the Cedars. Suggestions for conversation topics and guidelines for visits are available. Cedars staff members also are available at monthly meetings to answer questions and assist in meeting perceived needs. The March meeting of Advocates/Friends will be on Friday, the 26th, at 10AM in the Cedars Wellness Center.

Ever thought you’d like to create a float for a parade? Our Heifer International float earned a second prize in the 2008 May Parade, and we have money available to cover costs of a 2010 float. If you are  interested, or if you would like to volunteer for Heifer in some other way, contact Florence Crago at 241-4386. Better still, bring your ideas to a meeting of Heifer volunteers on Sunday, March 21, at 4:30 PM in the Cedars Wellness Center.
