Low-key Outreach Plans? Just Kidding! by Jane Rivette
How we long for those lazy, summer days. Really? Do we? The Outreach Committee doesn’t slow its pace. The difference is that we don’t have the structure of school for the children and working people take vacations. So, as you are able or as you wish, please read over some of the upcoming volunteer opportunities, and partake at will.
Bolder Boulder volunteer
Historically we have between 8 – 18 kind souls who brave the thousands of people who participate in the Bolder Boulder. Our volunteers earn around $20 each for their involvement in the race. We work in pairs and each holds the lettering designation for each heat, moving toward the starting line. When done with one round, we start over and do it again. It requires standing and walking for a few hours and being friendly and fun with the surrounding hoards of people. Thank you, Doris Turner for organizing and implementing this project.
Peace with Justice Sunday
Stay tuned for this special Sunday on June 16. This collection goes towards funding programs to removing structures and systems that harm God’s children in the U.S. and globally.
Clothing Collection for the 4 Corners Native American Ministry.
People wait all year for this opportunity to usefully recycle their unwanted, gently-used clothing and shoes. Throughout the month of June, Mountain View Outreach will be collecting your used-yet-useful clothing in bins in the Narthex. On July 21, a cheerful group of do-gooders will sort and pack the collection in Barker Hall starting at 8:00 am. Join us! We are so fortunate to have the support of our Lee Cortelyou who is in charge of this project this year as well as Mike Coffman @ RAC Transport in Commerce City, who ships our multiple bundles at no cost. We also thank in advance our own Paul McClung and his famous truck. Are you ready to part with those slightly aged polos and tennis shoes? Someone needs them! Please, give us only clean clothing free of rips and stains.
Bridge of Love Coin Collection
Do you save your pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters when you receive change from your purchases? Our own Glen Strand will direct the collection of change in his eye-catching jars on June 2 and 9. Last year the rural communities of Polson, Montana and the Arkansas Valley Circuit of southeast Colorado benefited by this collection. Who knew that a dime could do so much?
