 Community Helping Hands
 
  Prince of Peace Evangelical Lutheran Church is in full communion partnership with East Bangor United Methodist Community Church.  Some of our members help with the set-up, serving the food, clean-up and many more provide the desserts each month.  Our summer social ministry project is collecting toilet tissue for them, many people who attend these dinners are in need of it and so much more.  We are happy and blessed to be able to work with them, in helping the community.  
 
 
Items Donated to Lutheran World Relief 

Last month, all of the items collected for Lutheran World Relief during the past 9 months were taken down to the warehouse in Baltimore.  These items will be distributed around the  globe wherever they are needed.  The items collected were:

50 child care kits
28 personal care kits 
14 fabric kits
7 large quilts
226 bars of soap 
 
Thanks you to everyone at Prince of Peace for your generosity towards your neighbors around the world. 


 
Tired of all of the catalogs showing up in your mail box?
You can reduce the number you receive and help the environment at the same time. There is a phone app, called Paper Karma, for Android and I-phones, that can help. Register with them, and when an unwanted catalog arrives, simply take a picture of it, send it to Paper Karma, and they will contact the company and ask them to remove you from their list. While companies are not obligated to stop sending you their catalog, most do obey your wishes. So, help the environment and help reduce the amount of clutter in your mailbox, and give it a try.
