Mission of the Month— Community Emergency Services:
Which items are most needed this summer? CES Staff let us know that hygiene products are in high demand. Let us work together to help our neighbors and collect the following things from this list:
· shampoo and conditioner     · soap and body wash, deodorant
· toothbrushes and toothpaste    · feminine hygiene products
During the month of July, please bring these items to church and place in the bins in the entryways. Financial support is also welcome!  Donations marked for Mindekirken’s Mission Fund in the month of July will be forwarded to CES.  Also watch for prize-giveaways to encourage giving at church coffee time.  Since 1971, Community Emergency Service (CES) has provided high-quality service to people in need in Mindekirken’s neighborhood of Phillips. Through direct aid relief, advocacy, referral, guidance and prayer support, if desired, CES seeks to strengthen families and individuals.  www.cesmn.org
