On August 6th, after our worship service, we will be making and packing up sandwiches for 35 children attending the Northwoods lunch program. We are asking for people to stay a few minutes after the service to help with this task. Additionally, we have discovered that the children really love homemade cookies. We are asking anyone who would like to bake some cookies for August 6 to contact Shelia Cardamone before August 5 to let her know and to bring them on Sunday August 6th. Brian and Amy Carney and Shelia will be shopping for other lunch items, funded in part by a Thrivent Action Grant.
Since 2004 with much help from the community we have made over 3,000 quilts. We invite you to join us!
All quilts are made with donated fabric by volunteers from OSLC and from the wider community for worldwide distribution to refugees and disaster victims. No experience or equipment is needed. Volunteers stay as long as they like – an hour, two, or more. Quilting takes place at Our Savior Lutheran Church, 5 Summer Street in Hanover (on-site parking).

Friday evenings Dartmouth students prepare and serve meals to combat hunger in the Upper Valley. Weekly attendance at these “Students Fighting Hunger” community dinners averages around 30 people. As we support the student’s ministry, we continue to support the community meals at LISTEN in White River Junction and encourage you to do so. Dinner is served at 5:00 p.m.
Calling all cooks to provide a meal the 1st Wednesday of every month for the residents of Dismas House. Up to 3 people are needed each month to make an entree, salad and dessert. The meal can be cooked at home or at Dismas House. Dinner starts at 6 p.m. For more information please talk to Irma and Woody Graf, Kyle Mattson, or Gisela Jones Jones after worship or call the church office. The residents at Dismas House are former prisoners who are trying to make a new start in their lives. All are non-violent offenders.
“Living in community accomplishes the Dismas House mission of reconciliation. Community is fundamentally about relationship and it is precisely the relationship between the offender and their community that is broken, first by the crime committed and subsequently by the resulting incarceration. In reconciliation, wholeness is restored to the former prisoner and to society.” (read more at www.dismasofvermont.org )
Sitting down for a common meal with the residents at Dismas House is of mutual benefit to the ones who provide a meal and the ones who partake of the meal. Give it a try!
