Trunk or Treat Parrish: We Need Your Vehicle!
Contact Kevin Bowder, our Woodland at Parrish Campus Pastor to let us know you will bring, decorate, and man a vehicle (6:00-9:00pm). Or sign up in the lobby this weekend at church.
What is Trunk or Treat? It's like trick or treat but kids go from trunk to trunk in the parking lot of the school. You stand by the trunk and greet and have fun interacting with the families who come through. It's a lot of fun to see the kids.
MUST Get Your Tickets In Advance - (by this Monday evening)
Fellowship, High Energy Worship, CK Smokehouse Ribs & Chicken, and RV...
About RV --- RV Brown speaks all over the world and we are blessed that he lives just up the road in Tampa. RV is the president and founder of Outreach to America's Youth and author of "Step Up to the Plate Dad."
He has led men's retreats for Woodland in the past and we are excited to have him back!
Transformed Group Service Project: Consider Angel's Attic
One area of service we especially want to highlight for your consideration is the Angels Attic in Sarasota. Angle's Attic has been a ministry of hope for Sarasota and Bradenton since it was founded in 1990.
And now that they are in a permanent building, a former real estate office, there is need for people to help in a variety of ways.
- Donations of key items: furniture, housewares/small appliances (the shelves are depleted), baby and young children's clothing and toy. Consider a group "goods drive" where you gather housewares, children's clothing, furniture, and other items a family in crisis would need, or a mom moving into her own place with nothing would need.
- Volunteers willing to help with sorting, distribution at the Attic, and pick up of larger donated items
- Remodeling help. Already a couple of our members are assisting with some shelving, but plans are being drawn to move walls, consolidate two baths and a small kitchen (it was a real estate office) into just one area in order to free up more room in the not too distant future. Stay tuned!
To discuss a particular project, or get ideas, contact Stacy Kolbe directly by email or phone 941-350-8841
Housewares & Other Items Needed
Stacy says that their supply of housewares/small appliances is nearly depleted, and likewise their furniture.
Volunteers willing to help with sorting, distribution at the Attic, and pick up of larger donated items such as furniture.
Finally! A Permanent Building Donated to Angel's Attic
After years of moving from location to location, they now they have been given a permanent building, a former real estate office at 1255 Seeds Avenue in Sarasota.
