HELP NEEDED FOR PRIDE PICNIC:
We’re looking for a number of people to run a MCC booth at the Topeka Pride Picnic at Lake Shawnee (Near Shelter D) on Saturday Sept. 15th. Pride is a great opportunity to reach out and connect with new people. Given that this coincides with the Network Gathering, Pastor Paul is not available to coordinate this. We need people to be available from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to set up, staff and break down. It will include taking tables and chairs out to the Lake; preparing signage and deciding what to display. We would also like to borrow a freestanding canopy. Please talk with the pastor for more info
Here is a link to their website!
THE LOVE BOX (on the shelf under the bulletin board in the parlor), provided by the congregational care team, is an invitation to write any concerns (yours or others’) on the 3×5 cards that are provided. If we can, we will support you in meeting those needs. The LOVE BOX can also be used to leave appreciation notes for other congregants.
The annual Network Gathering will be here at MCC Topeka this year! Please put the dates on your calendar!! September 13 – 16

CIRCLES an Out Reach Opportunity: MCC of Topeka is excited to be serving CIRCLES with a monthly meal. It will be the third Monday of the month! Circles, provides families and community members inspiration and equips them to resolve poverty and thrive. Volunteers are needed to help provide part of the meal. A sign up sheet is located on the bulletin board in the parlor.
We will have our monthly “Spruce up the Church Day”, this Saturday,

We look forward to a large turnout as we prepare our building to host the Network Gathering. In addition to regular needs (vacuuming and bathrooms) we need entrance windows cleaned, tile floors and stairways swept and washed.
Can’t make it on Saturdays? A sign-up sheet is available in the parlor! Include your name, the day and the time you would be available to help.
If you use Dillon’s cards, please contact Lisa to find out how a percentage of your purchases can benefit our church, at no cost to you. (And you even get to keep your gas points!)
Our LOVE BOX is in the parlor to help people. It is located on the shelf under the bulletin board in the parlor. If you have a concern about yourself or someone else, or if you want to leave a note of appreciation for someone, please write it on a 3 x 5 card and place it in the box. The Congregational Care Team will read the cards, and when possible, provide support in meeting those needs or communicating your “thanks”.
