Needs for the May 19 KFC program:
1.Brown boxes like Amazon uses. The boxes will be used to build a wall during the program and will be carried by the children so should be a manageable size, such as boot box size. Not all boxes will be the same so many sizes will be usable. We need about 100 boxes.
2. Safety vests like construction workers wear (not orange hunters’ vest, but the bright yellow/chartreuse color)-To borrow
3. Construction hard hats-To borrow

Help is needed in Children’s Chapel and Nursery. More workers are needed so the times workers spend out of our regular services are farther between. Please prayerfully consider this ministry. See Shanna Hurst for more information.
