Wilsonville Community Food Bank
Again this year the Food Bank requested that we concentrate on selected food items: cereal, peanut butter and fresh fruit. Please bring your donated items and place them in the basket that is in the Narthex. You may also donate money and a donation box marked Food Bank will be on the rear table.
The Wilsonville Food Bank helps feed over 125
in our area.
Thank you for all your donations!
Please join us for a shared book study on Krista Tippett’s Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living. The book, a New York Times bestseller, is divided into 5 parts: Words, Flesh, Love, Faith, and Hope, and is based on Tippett’s NPR interviews of scores of people she considers wise, including scientists, artists, twentysomethings, and a theologian or two. Books are available in print and recorded, in bookstores and libraries, or from Terri Hoffmann (cost $10., checks to St. Francis with adult ed on the memo line). We’ll read snippets to each other so no purchase is necessary.
Oregon/SW Washington Cursillo Weekend for Women and Men
Thursday, July 27 – Sunday, July 30, 2017
Held at Oregon Christian Convention Center, Turner
Cursillo is a weekend of living in a Gospel centered community, of experiencing both God’s love for us and the Body of Christ’s love for us. Much laughter, singing, and food.
The Healthy Living Ministry is very thankful to the whole parish for supporting the 2017 Charbonneau Walk to End Alzheimer's. In addition to participation and individual donations from St. Francis, we presented a check for $825 to the Alzheimer's Association on behalf of our church. This amount was collected from contributions of the MDE and parishioners who generously donated to this worthy cause, to honor the memory of Norm Weekly.
Saturday, August 12, starting at 4:30 pm, Doug and Laurie Horton will be hosting the St. Francis Picnic at their home again this year. If you haven’t been (or if you have) it is not to be missed! This year will be even better. Dinner will take on a new format and Doug says that games and the pool are magnets for all your children, grandchildren, and other friends. The Hortons have graciously agreed to host the silent auction and desert auction fundraiser for children and families, which is sponsored by St. Francis’ Mission, Discipleship, and Evangelism Committee. This event allows us to be more generous to, especially, children, but also their families in our community, because of requests from schools or the Department of Human Services on behalf of foster children.
So, what we need is for you to come, enjoy, and help with raising money for the needs of children and families. How? Come prepared to bid on auction items and our delicious donated dessert items. We also need homemade desserts to auction! For our silent auction please consider donating things you have created like jewelry, art, woodwork, baking, gardening projects or food, needlework or quilts. Other things that are very popular are vacation home getaways, boat rides, fishing, things that you enjoy or have access to and can share on behalf of our outreach. You can think of great things that we can’t even come up with! There will be sign-up sheets in the narthex for both the dessert auction and silent auction, as well as anyone who can help with the event.
