Fellowship’s Luncheon
Join us this Sunday, February 16th for a delicious Baked Spaghetti Luncheon. The meal will be held in the Fellowship Hall following the worship service.  

Menu: Baked Spaghetti, Salad, Bread, and Vanilla Ice-cream with Cherry topping for Dessert.
Scouts are here to help!
 
Wycliffe's Cubs Pack 493 and Boys Scout Troop 493 are seeking to perform or assist in or around the church to benefit our church, programs, or facilities. As part of the re-chartering process, Cub Pack and Troop 493 must list what functions they performed throughout the year for the sponsoring (chartering) organization. Since the Homeless Shelter is no longer residing at Wycliffe, which was an outstanding "church service project" for both Scout Troops, both groups wanted to fill the void now that the shelter event has left Wycliffe.

The Scouts help with Spring & Fall Outdoor Clean-up Days, moving chairs & tables for various events in the fellowship hall; & assisting with decorating, undecorating for the Christmas season.

If your Sessional Committee has a church service project that the Scouts could assist with, let me know. Our Scouts range in age from 6 to 18, we do not meet on Holiday Sundays or days when there is no school. The Cub Scouts take most of the summer off, while both group of Scouts also are attending summer camps. So if you need letters folded, an area cleaned, materials moved from one area to another, please let me know!!!
