We will order pizza for dinner. Please bring a salad, fruit, veggies or movie snacks to share. See you there!
OFF TO A GOOD START... Yes, our outreach to women and children sheltered by CWS is off to a good start. If you don't have things at home to share, the Dollar Tree Store has all sorts of inexpensive household items priced at $1.00. Things needed are: pots, pans, dishtowels and dishcloths, can openers, silverware, dishes, glasses, mugs, place mats & napkins, mixing bowls, etc. You name it - they need it! Also needed are personal care items: dental products, lotions, bath and laundry soaps. Food items such as flour, sugar, oatmeal, sugar (brown and white) are needed - as well as containers to hold them. The blue bins will be in the narthex to receive your donations for this more-than-worthwhile cause. If you have large items, such as furniture, to donate, please call Green Exchange, 14001 SE McLoughlin, 503-654-170l, which has a special procedure set up to serve CWS. Thank you for your generosity and cooperation.

WAAAM – June 11th
The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum is unusual because all planes, cars, trucks and motorcycles on display are in operating condition. When you take a look at one of these pieces of history, you’re looking at something that isn’t just a shell, but something that is ready to fly, drive or ride.
A group outing is planned for Saturday, June 11th. We will gather at the church at 9:00 a.m. Saturday and head to our destination in Hood River. Travel will be by carpool, rented van, or personal vehicle, dependent on the number taking the trip and your needs. If you’re interested in seeing ‘living history,’ then plan to come along. This is a great event to invite your friends and neighbors to.
There are several great things about our visit to the museum on Saturday, June 11.
Because it is the second Saturday of the month, they will put several planes, cars and motorcycles into action. Since the museum is in Hood River, there are endless opportunities to visit scenic areas, brew pubs, wineries, and restaurants, many with fantastic views. There is even an Alpaca farm. Consider making a weekend of your visit by staying at a Bed & Breakfast.
