    Christmas In July -

    The tree goes up June 25! This year's Christmas In July will benefit two great causes - Perry Senior Citizen Services  and/or PerryTownship's SHARE Program for school supplies. Grab a shopping bag with a list on it (or more than one!) and return with unwrapped items before July 9. 

    Extra Wish Lists are at the Welcome Center, if the bags are all taken.

    Friedens Blood Drive -

    Blood Mobile in the parking lot at Friedens

    9:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

    Sign up at the Welcome Center or just show up!

    • Every 2 seconds, someone needs blood - Every minute, patients use more than 36 units of blood or blood products.  Every day approximately 40,000 units of blood are used throughout the country.
    • The blood supply needs constant replenishment - Every day more people are diagnosed with illness such as cancer, leukemia and sickle cell disease, all which utilize blood for treatment.  
    • One pint of blood can help up to 3 people - Each unit of blood can be separated into four components - red cells, plasma, cryoprecipitate and platelets.  These components can help as many as 3 different hospital patients.
    • Nearly all blood used for transfusion in the United States is drawn from volunteer donors - 
    • There is no substitute for human blood - Despite all the research, there has been no replacement of human blood found.
    • A unit of blood is roughly equivalent to a pint - Adult males have about 12 pints of blood in their bodies and females have about eight pints.

    Donating blood saves lives - The number one reason blood donors say they give is because they want to help others. Now is your chance to give back. Please donate April 24th and you will not only be helping others, you will be saving lives

    July Communion Sunday Food Offering -

    Bring peanut butter when you come to one of our worship services today!

    Since 1983 Hunger, Inc food pantry has been distributing food at no cost to residents of Perry Township and Beech Grove.  It is a nonprofit all volunteer organization serving over 100 clients per week. Each client receives at least 9 pounds of food which includes the basis of three complete meals for three days. Peanut Butter is generally included.  Additionally soap, paper goods and extras are given. Friedens Friends have been bringing Peanut Butter to church for years. 100% of your donation (a jar) goes directly to someone in need. When you come to church….Bring PEANUT BUTTER.

    Hunger, Inc appreciates Friedens consistent support. Thank  You
