Click here or on the picture above to watch a video from Missions Committee member Brad Todd about this year’s Lenten Mission Project, which lets everyone in the congregation be invested in the work of the church. Our goal this year is to raise $50,500 to support our work at the Mission Center, ACCA, and other organizations that provide important support to the community. Where our treasure is, there our heart will be also. Contribute to the Lenten Mission Project at annandalechurch.com/giving.
Church Council Approves 2021 Budget. At its March meeting, the church council discussed and approved the budget for 2021. We finished 2020 with a surplus of $28,644 and project a surplus of $44,540. Both years were assisted by PPP grants of $144,500. Thanks to Tracy Carney and the members of the Finance Committee for their work. Download a copy of the budget here.
There will be no in-person service on April 11, to give our worship team a break after Easter.
Join us for a Mother’s Day craft on April 18: We will be gathering outside under the pavilion at Bethlehem Lutheran Church (8922 Little River Turnpike, Fairfax, VA 22031) to make a giftable craft for Mother’s Day. Each family that signs up will get their own table for the activity. To allow as many families as possible to participate while maintaining COVID-19 precautions, we will have two groups. Group 1 is from 2:30-3:30 p.m. and group 2 is from 3:45-4:45 p.m. Masks must be worn at all times. Restrooms will not be available. Registration closes at noon on Friday, April 16; click here to sign up.
Drive-through on April 25: Swing by the church from 4-5 p.m. on Sunday, April 25 to pick up supplies to make gifts for the mothers, grandmothers, and those that are like mothers in your children’s lives for Mother’s Day. We’ll also have a sensory path challenge for the kids to do with prizes upon completion, and they can also participate in making a video for AUMC moms. If you have gently used warm-weather children’s clothing that your child has outgrown, you can also bring that to the drive through to donate to the Children’s Clothing Closet at the Mission Center. If possible, please bag by gender and size. Click here to sign up by April 23.
Volunteers needed to help with our A/V needs: We’ve ordered new video cameras to improve our online worship experience. When the new equipment arrives, we’ll have opportunities for volunteers to learn how to use the cameras and help us record the services. This is a chance to learn about the latest technology and help your church! Contact our Director of Worship, Pat Vaughn, at email@example.com.
