Other Opportunities to Help
Help RLC Visitors Feel Welcome
Would you like to help make people feel welcome when they come into the church? If so, please sign up to be a door greeter for your favorite service. The sheet is on the bulletin board in the fellowship hall.
Feeding the Hungry Who Stop By
We stock a variety of on-the-go food items to give to people who stop by RLC, hoping to get some food to get by. If you would like to help out those who are in need of food in our community, please consider donating a few items. We can always use the following items:
• Fresh fruit and vegetables
• Large paper bags
• Canned chicken and tuna
• Ravioli and pasta in a can (both family and individual servings) with pop tops, if possible.
• Chicken and beef soup
• Powdered milk
• Peanut butter
• Canned pop-top fruit (single-size servings)
• Bottled water and individual juice boxes
Deliver cheerful flowers, crayons and a coloring sheet to the 42 residents of Gran Grans.

Flowers for Residents of Gran Grans in Yukon, May
This morning I had the pleasure of delivering "Happy Spring" blessings to Gran Gran's Place on behalf of Resurrection Lutheran Church for our May Community Outreach.
We gave them five dozen roses--red and white roses for each of the 42 residents as well as 18 mixed-colored roses for the front desk.
Each resident also received a new box of 48 Crayons and a lovely coloring sheet with a Bible verse. Each month going forward, we will deliver another Bible verse coloring sheet for the residents.
Please pray that these gifts will lift their spirits and remind them that they're a beloved part of our community and not forgotten.
If you'd like to help with the cost of these gifts and future community blessings please add a little to your regular giving and specify the amount to be posted to OUTREACH.
BLESSINGS ON YOUR DAY!
