Support foster children through Project Christina
Sarah Bieling coordinates “Project Christina” with the Onondaga County Social Services Foster Care Agency, providing stuffed toys and reusable shopping bags to children who must move out of their homes. Consider purchasing $5 stuffed animals from the Kohl’s Cares for Kids program; the $5 supports Golisano Children’s Hospital at Upstate. Social Services also needs diapers, pacifiers, and bottles. Donations may be left in the Project Christina box in Fellowship Hall.
For Every Child’ helping hands available
To give each child in our Christian Education program a prayer partner outside of their family, there are “helping hands” available for adoption in Fellowship Hall. Each has the name of a child involved in our Discovery Zone. Take one home as a reminder to pray for that child all year, and use the envelopes for donations to Imagine No Malaria. In addition to offering prayers for the child named on the hand, please give to this life-saving project monthly, as you are able, to give children at risk for malaria a chance to live beyond their 5th birthday when they, too, will be given a name. Every gift of $10 buys a months’ worth of medicine or a bed net to cover three children. Donations of any amount are appreciated.

Offering for Hazel Street Project
We will take a special offering today to fund the renovation of the Hazel Street house owned by the church. The house has not been used, except for storage, for the past decade and is in disrepair. The goal is to renovate the house to accommodate mission teams who will work on area projects. It would also be available for church retreats and as temporary emergency shelter for families in times of crisis. Gutting the inside will take place on Saturday mornings in November. Interested volunteers should contact the church at 457‑5180. The contractor’s dumpster will cost approximately $1000. This special offering will offset the rental of the dumpster and help us get the project under way. Look for details of the project in our next issue of the “All Of Us” to come out in November.
Elderwood at Birchwood needs pastoral visitors, approximately 2 hours per week, for visitation and prayer. If interested please contact Pastor Penny, Chaplain, at 278‑4937.
