LIFE @ St. Anne's - 7/28/2022

Hi <<First Name>>, welcome to LIFE @ St. Anne's. We hope this will help you keep up with all the happenings here at St. Anne's.  Have a blessed week.

I hope "Better Late Than Never" applies to church newsletters... 

This week, I've been noticing a troubling sound whilst sipping coffee on my deck with my beloved hound- it's the sound of cicadas. And if that sound means anything, it means the return of school. While that tragically means I return to school next week, it also means our Back to School Bash is right around the corner! Don't forget to mark your calendars for August 21st and bring your backpack to be blessed. That will also be the day to redeem your prize for our Summer Reading Challenge- completed sheets need to be returned to me on August 14th.

Peace,
Meg+

Our community needs YOU, check below to see how you can help. If you're interested in starting up a ministry to address a need in the community please see Meg. The real work of being the church begins when we walk out our doors.

Hillcrest - Hillcrest is a transitional housing program for people who need a helping hand. St. Anne's sponsors an apartment for this program in partnership with St. Paul's Lee's Summit. Occasionally there is a need for supplies or volunteers to clean. The Hillcrest ministry is in need of items for their pantry. A list is above the white basket by the table in the Narthex.

St. Michael’s Pantry - St. Michael’s, Independence, hosts a necessity pantry providing a variety personal care items for those in our community needing assistance. This pantry can always use donations of men’s and women’s toiletry and personal hygiene items as well as dish soap and laundry detergent. Any donations should be left in the baskets located in the Narthex. The Pantry operates form 10a-2p the 1st and 3rd  Wednesday of each month.

BackSnack - St. Anne's BackSnack ministry fills 60 backpacks each week with packets of non- perishable food for children at Lee's Summit Elementary. The food is provided by Harvester's and delivered to our church by Episcopal Community Services. BackSnack meets at 1:30 on Monday.

Beds of Bags- Join us to weave plastic bags into "plarn" that will be used to make beds for people who are homeless. We weave plarn before church on Sunday morning.

Hope and Kindness Bags – Now available at the church – Keep one in your car to give to a person standing at an intersection looking for help from passing motorists. Bag includes: hand towel, wash cloth, bar of soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, two high protein meal bars and a $5 gift certificate for McDonalds. Each bag has a greeting card with a caring message from St. Anne’s and a list of community service organization contacts for additional assistance. Please make a $10 Donation to cover the costs.
