In months with a fifth Sunday, CBS provides a full dinner to fellow Columbians in need through the Loaves & Fishes program. We are serving Sunday, July 30th, and we need donations of food items as well as volunteers to set up, serve, and clean up.
Click here to sign up to help/bring food.
Bring food to Wilkes Blvd. Methodist Church, 702 Wilkes Blvd. (back entrance), before 4:15 pm that day. Volunteers setting up/serving should arrive by 4:30 pm and those serving/cleaning up at 5 pm. We expect to serve about 150 people, and the need for volunteers to serve is especially critical.
With questions, please contact Noah at heringmann@missouri.edu or Brent at brentdeelg@gmail.com

GARDEN WORK DAYS are from 9 am to 11 am on Wednesday and Sunday. Feel free to contact Noah (HeringmanN@missouri.edu), Brent (brentdeelg@gmail.com), or Julie (jdeering76@gmail.com) for more information.

Emily Fuller and Judy Schermer are part of a new chapter of Threshold Choir (http://thresholdchoir.org), an international organization whose mission is to sing non-religious songs of comfort to those in need, whether they’re in hospice care, in the hospital or at home. 

If you’d like more information or would like to arrange for us to sing for someone, contact Judy Schermer at judyschermer@hotmail.com or 573.268.8910

With the hot and dry weather it takes extra water to keep the gardens on each side of the door to the new building looking good.  (These together are the memorial garden.) We need volunteers to take a turn with the watering. Please sign up for a date(s) with the SignUpGenius link below. If you have questions, contact Tanya Christiansen at tj_christiansen@yahoo.com.
