Greetings and prayers from the Social Ministry Committee,

As we mentioned in this space last month, we have been doing the Noisy Offering for the same group of charities over and over for several years.  While we do think that those are groups that deserve our support, it was pointed out there are many other groups out there that are equally deserving.  So, through September, we will have a suggestion box available for members of the congregation to suggest potential new recipients for occasional Noisy Offering proceeds.  Please include your name, in case we have any questions.  We will be repeating this information during services during the month, even though we know everyone reads the newsletter. 

Also, be sure to check out our table on Rally Day, Sunday, September 10.  Consider volunteering for one of our community projects.
