Weekly Notices 2 September 2018

Mission Project:  The Retiring Offering and the Bucket Mission this morning will     support the cost of freight for the Christmas Boxes this year.

Operation Christmas Boxes:  Thank you once again to those who supported this last year.  We will once again be supporting the project this year. Each box is to contain something to wear,  something to play with, something for school, something to love, something special and something for personal hygiene for boys and girls in ages 2-14 years. The boxes from New Zealand generally go to an Asia or Pacific Island   country.  You are all invited to support this by providing items or make a donation   towards the transport costs of $10 a box. A box will be in each foyer for you to put in the items or leave the donation. Some OCC shoe boxes will be obtained. For further information contact Judith Begg Ph 688 6004.

Eatwell Fruit & Vege Co-op:  Market-fresh fruit & vegetables.  Packs $15 or $8.  Text or phone 022 123 3663 or Facebook:      facebook.com/Eatwell Timaru & message to order, for a pack each Thursday for pick up on the following Tuesday.  Thank you.

Deadline for the September/October LINK:  Please email to: link@timarupres.org.nz or drop copy in to the Church Office by Friday  7 September.

Mission Group:- Food Bank—When you buy a supermarket “special” item perhaps you could buy two, one for the Food Bank.  Your donation doesn’t necessarily need to be a foodstuff item, it can be a cleaning product, or a toiletry item like toothpaste. These are very  much appreciated.
