Treats for Maple Park Services
Christ Church bakers : would you be willing to bring a homemade treat one Sunday  morning this summer for the children--and others--to enjoy after the service? The children really look forward to having some lemonade and a yummy snack, and we like to offer homemade goodies whenever possible.To sign up, please contact Melissa: melissa@christchurchwinnetka.org .
For those who have already baked for us, we love you and thank you!
New Trier Township Food Pantry
Our next New Trier Township Food Pantry intake is Sunday, August 5.  
This summer we have two ways you can help provide food for our neighbors in need:
1)  Donate cash to the pantry jar during church at the park.  We will give the cash directly to the pantry as donations drop off significantly in the summer while the need for food increases due to children being off school and not taking advantage of free breakfast & lunch programs.
2)  Bring produce from your garden to church at the park.  Gardens are starting to flourish, and the pantry gratefully welcomes fresh produce as that tends to be the most expensive and thus something their clients tend to spend less on.  (Please wash the produce and place root vegetables in resealable plastic bags once dry at the request of the Pantry.)

Our Church: Did you know?
The Church on the Hill is aptly named because of its location on a hill on Sheridan Road. Dedicated in 1905, this traditional stone church was the gift of the William Hoyt family. It was built as a memorial to their daughter and three grandchildren who were tragically killed in the 1903 Iroquois Theater fire in Chicago.   Church On the Hill - The Story of 100 Years.
