What's Happening this week in Religious Education:

7 Cents a Day jars - bring these into the sanctuary this Sunday and they will be poured into a communal vessel at the beginning of the service.

Interfaith Social Services Food Drive - Thanks to all those who have donated. If you haven't yet donated, this Sunday is your last chance. The kids will check out how much food was donated and will load it into Carmel Callan's car. She has graciously volunteered to deliver the goods to Interfaith Social Services in Quincy, an organization that provides a range of services to people in 10 communities from Quincy to Scituate.

Bake Sale - To benefit a hunger organization to be determined. With all of the food and money coming in this Sunday, the kids will be busy and energized by what they - and you - have generated!They will vote this Sunday on which organization to donate the money to: Heifer International, Oxfam, Scituate Food Pantry, or the Plymouth area Coalition for the Homeless.
