HOLYPALOOZA – This year it is a two morning event.
Saturday, September 20 will be a day of service in the community.  A light breakfast at 8:30 at Central will begin the day before our volunteers head off to 3 main locations to work until noon.  Please sign up for your choice of activity so that we know how many to expect.  1. The ISU Community Garden needs produce harvested  for donation to a food pantry as well as weeding and winterizing.  2. Deming Center residents will be preparing for the move to their new location.  Friendly faces during Bingo will be needed as well as distributing home care bags for their new apartments.  (Thank you for filling those bags and returning them!).  3. The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is the same morning at Memorial Stadium.  You may choose to be a part of the Holypalooza Team by walking or running the 5K or 1-mile course or just relax by the finish line and cheer for the finishers.  There is a registration fee and you are encouraged to register online (the team will be posted today or tomorrow).  You may also make a donation to the team without participating.  There will also be the opportunity to go as a volunteer helper – those jobs are yet to be determined.  A 4th option is to assist with set-up and preparation for the United Campus Ministries Barbecue (formerly ‘Pig Roast”).
Childcare is provided at Central for infants through 5th graders.  The children will be making note holders for the Deming Center residents and will walk to the Center late in the morning to distribute the gifts.  Adult and youth c
hildcare workers are needed for that day – see Cheryl Moles.

Sunday, September 21 – Joint worship at 10 am at Central.  Following the service, all are invited to enjoy lunch at the UCM Barbecue.  Serving will be at Centenary United Methodist and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Churches.  A free will offering will be taken for the meal.




This is Lance Weatherwax’s nephew, Christopher (dancing with Lance’s mother). He is 23 years old and has stage 5 kidney disease. Christopher is on the IU Health transplant list with an expected wait of 3-4 years for a kidney.
Lance tells us that if someone donates a kidney, he can be off the list in as little as 2-3 months.  Persons who want more information on kidney donation (without commitment) can call Kelly Coffey at 800-382-4602.
Please share this message as you believe appropriate.
