Volunteers Needed at People Helping People
We have volunteers who work each Wednesday to interview and make recommendations for helping Fauquier County citizens who need help with utility bills, rent, some medications, and gasoline. Three of our volunteers are moving and if you are willing to give 3 hours [9:00-Noon] of your day to help, please contact Jan Polk [540.428.2387] or Doug Harris [540.347.3509]. We will train you and you'll be able to serve in Jesus' name.
Women's Night Out
On Monday August 7, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm, we will come together to watch the movie,The Red Tent, a sweeping tale that takes place during the times of the Old Testament, told through the eyes of Dinah, the daughter of Leah and Jacob. Dinah happily grows up inside the red tent where the women of her tribe gather and share the traditions and turmoil of ancient womanhood. The film recounts the story of Rachel, Leah, Zilpah, and Bilhah, the four wives of Jacob. Dinah matures and experiences an intense love that subsequently leads to a devastating loss, and the fate of her family is forever changed. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org
Donations for Haiti
Warm weather dresses of all sizes are needed for the missions groups to take to the ladies in Haiti. Dresses should be conservative [no sleeveless or dresses with words/logos]...something appropriate for school or church. A collection box is located in the Fellowship Hall.
