Cookie Caper Updates

Do you have your Grandma’s old recipe file? Perhaps that favorite Christmas cookie recipe that Grandma baked for you is tucked inside. Baking three dozen [or more] of Grammy’s favorites might awaken happy memories of your past as you create your contribution to the COOKIE CAPER at St. Thomas. The date is Saturday, December 8. COOKIE CAPER is about more than just cookies…it’s about memories, fellowship and ministry to those in need. Proceeds benefit Inter Parish Ministry and the St. Thomas outreach fund for those in need. Please consider being a part of the fun and festivities. For details contact St. Thomas Church Office, 831-2052, or email office@stthomasepiscopalchurch.org.

I will have a signup sheet in the narthex. You can also e-mail me if you plan to work. You can go to the website to get a map of the new site. This home is a ranch style and will go much quicker than the two this summer.

Pedal Good News! ECSF will be putting in the BikeFest t-shirt order Aug. 6, so sign up this week at http://www.ECSFsouthernohio.org if you’re planning to join one of the three rides Aug. 17-18.  This guarantees you a BikeFest shirt to share your love of God and neighbor.

Dads desperately looking for a new job will be able to keep the electricity on and prevent the family’s stores of food from spoiling. Homeless families will be able to keep their toddlers safe while getting the advice and resources they need to regain stable housing.  Cincinnati bikers: Graeter’s, Aglamesis, Servatii’s, Oakley Cycles, the Quarter Bistro, and the May Café have all donated gift certificates for the post-ride raffle and dinner at St. Thomas, Terrace Park!
