SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
Community Ministry collects school supplies each summer to support local children. School supplies needed this year include 24 count crayons, colored pencils, erasers, glue, glue sticks, markers, index cards, composition books, wide-ruled loose-leaf paper and spiral notebooks, pocket folders, black and blue dry erase markers, rulers, blunt nose scissors, pencils, Post-It notes, and highlighters. Please bring any of these items and place them in the school supply box in the narthex.
PAY IT FORWARD
For the last Sunday of each month, members of Atonement prepare frozen, homemade meals. These meals are packaged in "to-go" boxes, and can be taken to anyone to "Pay It Forward," such as a neighbor, friend, family member, or even yourself. This month's Pay It Forward event is on Sunday, July 29. Please consider participating in this program! A free will donation is accepted for the meals, but is not required.
FIRST FRIDAY - BROADWAY SONGS
First Fridays are back!
Come join us on Friday, August 3rd for the revival of the “First Friday” series at Atonement. For our newest inaugural evening, we will be presenting “An Evening On Broadway”: a wonderful night full of classic and new tunes from the Great White Way performed by some of Colorado’s finest talent. Who knows? There might even be a few sing-a-longs and a ‘Broadway Karaoke’ portion of the evening where anyone can be a Star of the Stage! And as an added bonus, our very own Sharon Wink will be showcasing many of her new paintings which will also be for sale. Bring a dessert to share and come on out for a night of art and “An Evening On Broadway”!
When: Friday, August 3rd
Time: 7:30 PM
What to bring: A dessert to share
We will also be taking up an optional collection to thank all of the performers who will be donating their time and talents.
GROCERY GIFT CARDS
King Soopers and Safeway re-loadable grocery gift cards are sold between services on the last Sunday of each month. Atonement receives a percentage of sales and re-loads. These proceeds are used to fund any Atonement project or special need and to support various ministries. Atonement appreciates the support of this fundraiser!
We hope you enjoy some morning coffee each Sunday in our narthex. To help offset the cost of supplies, your free-will donation is greatly appreciated. Donations can be dropped in the coffee-fund box located in the narthex.
For the month of July, Community Ministry has asked Atonement to supply canned vegetables. Toiletry items are also needed. Please leave these or any other non-perishable food items in the grocery basket in Atonement's sanctuary entryway.
There is a fundraiser for Community Ministry on Thursday, July 19 from 4-8 PM at the Panera Bread in Belmar at 650 S. Wadsworth Blvd. in Lakewood. Please bring the flyer below with you for proceeds to be donated. These flyers are also available in the Atonement narthex.
