DARBY MISSION

March 16th Food Giveaway Drive

Just a few more days to bring in your contributions to our Pasta Sauce drive. The deadline is Tuesday, March 15, to insure a timely delivery to the mission!

Darby Dinner

We are awaiting the date of our next sponsored Darby Dinner, but we already know what we’ll be serving… something with turkey breast!

These 11 turkey breasts were donated to us by the food folks at Centrella’s Deli & Italian Market in Havertown. We are grateful for the generosity!

PROJECT SHARE

Many thanks to those who are providing the weekly lunches to Project Share in the month of March. Two weeks down, three to go! If you have questions about the lunch program or would like to volunteer for future lunch prep, please contact Cassie (grammysqrd@gmail.com or 610-608-5440)

Our Current Drives:

  • Apostle’s Cup Coffee – after purchasing some for yourself you can donate an extra bag to Project Share. $4 of every purchase goes directly to the Darby Mission to fund their various projects. You can help two of our Outreach partners with one purchase!
  • Socks – socks, boots and gently used winter coats
  • Soup – cans of hearty/chunky soups for the lunch program.
  • Corks – we are collecting these for craft projects at Project Share and the Darby summer camps to build bird houses
  • Girl Scout Cookies – sure it’s hard to part with them, but if you’re willing, we’ll take your donated cookies to Project Share to add to the other lunch goodies we’re supplying. This is the last week to purchase Girl Scout Cookies for 2022. Don’t miss out! See announcement below for Emma Gallagher’s cookie link!

This Wednesday, March 16 – the second discussion group opportunity for “The Mystic Path” will be held over Zoom using the Compline zoom link..

+ Lenten Resources
Visit HolyApostlesPA.org/Quest for links to online resources for study and reflection on the themes of Communion and the Blood of Christ. These resources will be gleaned from a variety of sources and viewpoints and with different audiences in mind, including children. New resources will be posted each Tuesday and Thursday in Lent.

+ FURNITURE DONATIONS FOR THE GODLY PLAYROOM
Are you thinking of Spring cleaning and want to repurpose some children’s furniture? Please consider a donation to CHA for the Godly Playroom. As we prepare for returning to a full Sunday School program and nursery care, it is the perfect opportunity to refresh the Godly Playroom. We are looking for the items noted below, in good condition. If you would like to make a donation, please contact Peter Patton at pmpatton307@gmail.com or Linda Day at lindambday@gmail.com.

Thank you,

+ APOSTLE’S CUP COFFEE
Bags of Apostle’s Cup coffee continue to be available for purchase on Sundays and from the church office during regular church hours. Bags are $15 each and $4 of every purchase goes directly to the Darby Mission to support their efforts in the community.

+ MASKS IN CHURCH BUILDING
While our Vestry has determined that the requirement for wearing a mask during indoor church services will be based on the Montgomery County positive test rate falling below 7.0%, masks must continue to be worn in the building whenever Little Friends Daycare is in session. Thank you for your understanding and care for the young children in our midst.
