Week of May 29

Dear Friends,
Here are a few things going on this week at Christ the Redeemer:
A Note From the Treasurer:  We are blessed to have a caring church family who responds when members are in need. Some have donated to Fr. Brian’s Discretionary Fund and he has used those funds to help when an unexpected crisis like a fire, medical expense, or family emergency has occurred. He has even given to some in the community with one-time rent assistance.  We have had quite a few needs within our church family this year and the Discretionary Fund is just about depleted. Please prayerfully consider giving to this fund.  Checks can be made payable to Christ the Redeemer with Discretionary Fund in the memo line and placed in the offering basket or given to Janie Atwood.
For those of you planning on pledging for the Rwandan School House Project, we hope to have the pledge cards in by this Sunday.  If God has put it in your heart to help with this Mission, we prayerfully ask that you fill out the pledge card, place it in the envelope provided, and place it in the offering basket.  We hope to have enough pledges to get through the second phase of this project.  Thank you for your consideration!  We will keep you updated on the progress of the school house.
Vacation Bible School registration is now open.  Please visit the VBS webpage at ChristtheRedeemer.org/ministries/vacationbibleschool for more information and downloadable registration forms.  We are still in need of a few donated items to help out with crafts and decorating.  Items can be dropped off in the church office or given to Jennifer Brown.  Here is a list of the needed items:  All white men’s ankle socks (50 pairs), Baby food jars with the labels removed, Battery operated tealight candles, Clear shower caps, Clear water bottle caps, Fish stickers, Glue dots, Soup cans (empty, standard size with the labels removed), and Two spools of fishing line.  Thank you in advance for all of your help!
I look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.
