Friendly Kitchen Needs Your Help!
The 4th Friday of every month our Friendly Kitchen endeavors to serve a luncheon at the Salvation Army for those who need a good lunch.  A sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in our Fellowship Hall asks for donations of American Chop Suey and/or brownies in the winter months, and egg salad/ tuna salad or potato/pasta salad in the summer months. STARTING IN MAY we will be switching to the summer months menu (above). Please bring your donations to the church kitchen early the morning of the 4th Friday and the committee will take them to the Salvation Army for serving.  NOTE:  The 4th Friday of the month is not always the last Friday of the month!
There WILL be a Friendly Kitchen this year during the months of November and December.

Perhaps You Have Been Seeking a Place Where...............
Your desire to serve others will be stimulated....
Your need to laugh will be well-received and shared...
Your grieving is comforted...
Your sorrows are lightened...
Your doubts are respected...
Your children are received and welcomed...
Your talents are nourished...
Your love or art and music is expanded...
Your reasoning is appreciated...
Your friendships are strengthened...
Your personal conscience is treasured...
and you receive respect just for being who you are.


Message from Pastor Michael Graham...
Churches come in a variety of shapes and sizes; what makes each place unique is the people gathered.

Churches are one of the few institutions where people of all ages play an important role. We share life toge Pastor Michael Grahamther and make the passage from childhood to adulthood in the presence of others. How wonderful it is to make the passage through life with people who care for you.

I love the intergenerational flavor of the Gilford Community Church; where young and old regularly come together, where children arenít spoken "to" but are invited to join in the wonderful conversation of faith. The enthusiasm of our children, the idealism of our youth and young adults, and the wisdom of our elders, all blend together to make this a vibrant, hope-filled community.

The 2014 Summer Fair will be held on the Gilford Community Church grounds, as in other years.  There will be fair areas outside (Chuck Wagon hamburgers and hot dogs, drinks, ice-cream, fried dough and live music!)  Rotary Breakfast will be on Saturday from 7-10 in the Youth Center.

There will be a Silent Auction in the Youth Center, as well as children's toys and games for sale.  Also, new this year, Walt Disney's Anna and Elsa from the movie "Frozen" will be available in person in the Youth Center to meet and have pictures taken with all their young fans.  Parents will be able to buy tickets (between $5-$10) on the GYC website.  Details forthcoming!

No luncheon this year and no linen table.  Jewelry will be open only on Saturday.  But some added areas of interest will make their debut outside (water-based games in the courtyard for young children, which will include a slip n' slide, a bubbles station and water balloons!  Also, an inflatable obstacle course on the upper parking lot!  Put the children in their swimming suits!

Let us know if you have any items that you would like to donate to the Silent Auction.  Small antiques or small fine furniture items will be accepted, as well as collectible items.  Business or Family Baskets are welcomed (theme ideas are in every Sunday bulletin).  Call Sue Allen at 528-2265 or sallen@nco-law.com if you'd like to put together a basket or if you have something for the Silent Auction.

We are taking clean donations for the White Elephant.  (Books, puzzles, stationary, music, movies, kitchen items, knick-knacks, baskets, tools, fishing stuff, sporting goods, outdoor items, birdhouses and feeders, bicycles, wagons, etc.)  There may be a White Elephant outside this year, as well!

Donated jewelry should come to the office.

NOT ACCEPTED:  Baby strollers, car seta, cribs.  Clothes, shoes, large electrical appliances, encyclopedias, exercise equipment, computers, televisions or suitcases (unless antique.)

If you would like to be a part of all this excitement (it's a great way to get to know people in the church!) HELP IS NEEDED.  Call the office at 524-6057 and we'll hook you up in your area of interest.
