A big hug and thank you to all who have sent cards, visited, and just kept me in their prayers. I am so very grateful. My progress after the trauma surgery on my leg will be slow and PATIENCE is not one of my virtues. However I do know that God is with me every step of the way and I am never alone. Knowing that encourages me to have a patient attitude and produces a sense of joy. So thank you all again. To the wonderful ladies in the back pews, my thoughts are especially with you every Sunday morning. Elaine Dively

Ongoing Items

SHIM During the summer food donations are fewer at SHIM while the need for food is increased with children home for the summer and not eating breakfast and lunch at school. Here at Faith we usually do our large food drive, Manna Sunday, in November which is when donations to SHIM are high. So this year we will have a large food drive throughout the month of May so local children aren’t going hungry during the summer months. Any time throughout May please consider donating the following : Cereal & Oatmeal, PB & Jelly, Pasta & Sauce, Rice & Beans, and Healthy Snacks. With your help we can have a HUGE food drive Thank you !!!

SHIM FOOD PANTRY The suggested food for May is canned vegetables, low in sodium.

KNITTING will continue the first and third Thursdays of each month from noon to 1:30pm. For more information, contact Beth Hollingsworth or Judy Stevenson.

HELP South Hills Pet Rescue by donating your discarded newspapers. These newspapers will be used at the facility. There is a collection bin available in the counting room. Questions, contact Cheryl Redilla.
