Mark your calendar for Monday & Tuesday, July 29 & 30 to spend a couple of enjoyable mornings (10 am to noon) reading one-on-one with children at Casa Linda UMC.
Volunteers 18 & older must complete a
Background Check Consent Form and watch a
"Ministry Safe" video. (Deadline for Background Check Consent Forms is July 22.)
Reading with kids during the summer is a lot of fun AND it helps them retain their academic skills.

Blood Drive 
Carter Bloodcare logo

Our next Blood Drive is on July 21st.

Sign up for our 3rd Blood Drive of 2013 on Sunday the 14th.

Your donation is especially important because attendance is lower during the summer and the need for blood remains high.

If you have questions about the drive, please contact Jim Lane at

We need 25 each of new, unopened, travel-size toiletries, including: soap, shampoo, lotions, toothpaste, snacks (single serving - such as power bars, pretzels, nuts or packaged peanut butter crackers) Deliver items to A114 by July 15. We'll assemble the bags at The New Room for delivery next month. Thank you for helping us welcome new families to our community.
