Ivy reaches out during Lent

February 17, 2018 by  
Filed under News & Announcements

Giving is Christian outreach “Ivy-style”! Our congregation is responding to multiple offering invitations this Lenten Season. We give God glory for the many, additional ways in which people of Ivy Chapel United Church of Christ are reaching out beyond our church.

Rejoice over this extensive array of things our congregation has done and is doing this Lent: supporting World Vision in connection with Ivy Youth 30-Hour Famine; Lenten canned food drive which will go to three local food pantries; supporting Shannondale, a mission project with the Missouri Mid-south Conference of the UCC with its craft center, lodge for retreats and outdoor programs; supporting Baby Blue Pantry (operating through Wee Care Learning Center of Festus, providing money for baby diapers and formula for families in need); and supporting ecumenical, global ministries by offering gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing (all donations accepted through Easter).
Praise God for Ivy’s faithful responses to these invitations to give!

Please send us an email to learn more about the organizations we support, or if you would like to learn how you can help.

Can you help with the Ivy Chapel Chili Supper?

We will need lots of volunteers to help on February 19 and 20 to set up, cook, serve and clean up. Sign-up sheets for those jobs will be in Fellowship Hall.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Checks may be made out to Ivy Chapel UCC. Please note “Chili Dinner on the memo line.”

More Ways to Help with the Dinner:

Donate Raffle Items

This year there is going to be a raffle at the Chili Dinner. The committee would like to have about 10 or more items, donated by the congregation. A few examples might be Dierbergs gift cards, restaurant gift cards, homemade gift baskets, gift certificates for yard work, etc.

It’s Not Dinner without Dessert…

We are also planning to serve homemade brownies and pies as dessert at the dinner on February 20th We need 10 batches of brownies, 9 by 13 pans. The brownies and pies need to be brought to church on Friday, February 19th.  We are asking that the brownies be uncut, so they will stay fresher and can be cut uniformly. No icing please! Look for the sign-up sheets in fellowship hall. Sign up and share your favorite recipe.

Chili Dinner Decorations

The Chili Dinner committee is asking for donations of cans of chili and beans and boxes or bags of crackers to place in the middle of the tables for decorations. After the February 1st dinner, these will be donated to the food pantries at Joint Neighborhood Ministries and Circle of Concern. Please bring them to church in the coming weeks and place them in the box in the Narthex.

And finally…

If you know of any way to help us offset any of the costs of food or supplies, or if you have any questions, please get in touch with us.
