Nourish Food Bank is anticipating an increase in need during the summer months. Many families who rely on school food programs don’t have that resource available in the summer. Please consider adding a few more items to your weekly shopping to help our neighbors in need. Pet food and diapers are also items that are in high demand. Cash is always welcome as well. The donation wagon is located in the Narthex. 

The LED Electronic Message sign will be installed by Berry Sign Co. in mid to late July. The upper portion of the sign will be blue as pictured. The Vestry approved the proposal at the May meeting. It is being paid for with proceeds from the Martha Graef (unrestricted) Fund and a generous donation from Ginny Rawlings. We are excited about the advertising and outreach potential (double-faced and changeable) to showcase the church activities to the community.

A Noah’s Ark themed Vacation Bible School program will be held at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 10630 Gravelly Lake Drive SW, Lakewood, WA 98499 on July 22-26 from 9:00 am to 12 noon daily with a celebration program on Sunday, July 28th at the 10:30 am morning worship service. The program is open to all children 3 years of age (must be potty trained) through 6th grade. Donations are appreciated ($15 recommended per child). The deadline for registration is July 8th. Registration forms are available at the church (hours 10 am – 3:00 pm, Tues-Fri), email to parishoffice@stmaryslw.org, or go to our website or call 253-588-6621.
