No Agapes during the Summer months.

The Parish is still in need of: compartment plates, napkins, paper towels, bowls,
big and small drinking cups, plastic utensils, toilet tissue, coffee, creamer, sugar,
salt, pepper, bathroom cleaning supplies, liquid soap for bathrooms, windex.
Lysol spray and wipes, Cascade for dishwasher and anything else someone thinks we need.

Also, we are going back to members cleaning on an assigned date.
If someone is unable to clean, please e-mail President, Linda Macheras at
lvmacheras@hotmail.com prior to our making the list.

5. Tithing, giving 10% of one’s income is God-pleasing,
As are all gifts offered by pious and cheerful givers with humble hearts.
Also, a new card must be on file each year for members to be in “good standing”.
Stewardship Cards are available in the Narthex.

6. On Agape Sundays, Everyone is asked to bring their favorite dish to share, as well as;
“tidy up” after the Luncheon.
