Nardin Park Outreach is working with other local places of worship and St. Alexander’s Food Pantry to help provide school supplies to over 200 local students in the Farmington/Farmington Hills school system who are eligible for assistance.
You can help with this worthwhile effort by picking up a few extra supplies when you are doing your back to school shopping.
The “Wish List” includes:
- #2 pencils
- Crayola 24 pack crayons
- Loose leaf notebook paper
- One subject theme books
- Packages of blue, black, or red ballpoint pens
- Individual subject folders
- Colored pencils
- Washable Crayola colored markers
Vacation Bible School participants will be asked to donate school supplies as our “community caring” component of this year’s theme for Habitat for Humanity.
If you wish to make a monetary donation, please write checks to Nardin Park, and in the memo line write “Operation Common Good.” Operation Common Good was begun several years ago by the students and teachers at Warner Upper Elementary School. Your donation will help provide shoes, a new outfit, backpacks, and school supplies for homeless children and youth. Nardin Park’s check to “Operation Common Good” will be mailed on August 26th.
You are invited to the Vacation Bible School’s Program on Thursday, August 13th at 7:00 PM. The children will sing songs, play the Kristal Bells, and add a bit of drama. Come hear them tell about their week of Children in Mission caring for themselves and others.
On August 30th, Nardin Park will welcome Rev. Ben Bohnsack as our featured preacher. We hope that you will join us for worship and festivities to follow – all a part of our third celebration of Nardin Park’s 50th Anniversary on Eleven Mile Road!
Following Worship, there will be a picnic on the front lawn. Reservations will be taken after Worship on August 9th, 10th, and 23rd.
If you are interested in being a part of the planning team for this event, please contact Carolyn Bough.
“Under Construction” is a vacation Bible school curriculum developed in consultation with Habitat for Humanity International. The curriculum uses construction metaphors to teach children about community and the need for decent shelter for all people. “Under Construction” shows children how to help others in their neighborhood through Christian service.
