The Arts Council is excited to share they have launched two artist calls for the renovated Worship Center. The first call is for a muralist for the north wall space next to the Children's worship space. The call is for a bright, uplifting and welcoming mural to illustrate that people of all ages are welcome in this church. The second call is for 8 paintings depicting the 8 Beatitudes to be displayed on the entry hallway to worship center on the southwest side.

FAITH IN ACTION NEWS
MARYLAND SCHOOL NEEDS YOUR HELP!
School is starting, with many concerns and a variety of formats. Children want to learn and teachers want to facilitate that, safely and successfully, however it can be managed. Our goal with the Maryland School Project is to support their efforts where we can, budgets are even more stretched this year, and they still need school supplies to give out during the semester to children when they pick up their Chromebooks, breakfast/lunch bags, and other instructional materials. We would be very grateful for an online order of supplies or a donation for us to shop. Below is a link to the list of supplies they have suggested and further instructions and contact information for the donations.
Our annual ICM FOOD DRIVE has been temporarily suspended. If you have filled grocery bags to donate, please hang on to them. We are not collecting them at this time. We will update you on when you can bring them back to church. Thank you!
Clothing, shoes, and small appliances or household items are gratefully accepted by ICM (Interfaith Community Ministry). The big yellow ICM collection barrel has moved from the lobby of the Worship Center to the lobby of Nelson Hall. ICM is always in need of clothing, food, and household items that are in good condition. If you are cleaning out cupboards and closets, before you discard, give thought to the possibility that ICM clients could use it. ICM serves the low income working people, after they pay their rent and utilities, there is very little money left. We can lend a helping hand! If you donate breakables, please pack them into a box with the outside marked fragile. This will alert our custodian, Brendan, and the ICM driver to handle carefully. Thank you for your caring and outreach to those who are struggling to make ends meet.
WANTED: EMPTY SHOE BOXES FOR THE HUMANE SOCIETY! Don't forget our furry friends at the AZ HUMANE SOCIETY! They want shoe boxes any size for the cats and kittens. It provides them a secure place and the box goes to their new home. Susan stops by at the end of each month to take the boxes we have collected. Place them next to the Faith in Action baskets in the Narthex or you can also drop them at the front office. Make a cuddly kitten happy and secure!
BISHOP'S PANTRY needs replenishing of most everything except peanut butter and cereal. The most needed items are canned fruit and vegetables, pasta and pasta sauce, tuna & other canned meat, rice,,hearty soups and canned dinners such as beef stew, ravioli, spaghettios etc. Please remember to check the expiration dates. Also, please donate sauces and gravy in cans not in jars to prevent glass breakage.
If you are interested in helping with any of the above drives and missions, please come to a FAITH IN ACTION meeting or see Dee Sullivan. Faith in Action meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 1:00 in the Office Conference Room.
