Special Sunday - Books 4 Kids!
Dear Spry Church Family and Friends,
I'm writing earlier than usual this week because I have special news to share with you. Please take a moment to read this message.
On Monday several teachers from our church shared on Facebook about a campaign to sponsor children in their classrooms so that all their students can get books to keep, read, and love at home. Without such support, some students are not able to order books through the Scholastic Book Club. Scholastic has books every month that are $1, so for merely $9 per child each student can receive one new book each month during the school year. The goal is for each child to be able get a new book to keep and take home to build his or her library each month. It was amazing to learn how quickly people signed up to support this cause - but there is more that can be done.
We as a church are going to offer our support, too. In response to this opportunity to provide books to local children, Spry Church will set aside $1 for every person in worship THIS SUNDAY, September 9, and we will split that money between the 2 elementary schools closest to our church, York Township and Ore Valley.
Please invite friends to worship with us this Sunday - the more people who come, the more money we will give to promote children's literacy in this way.
Below is a message to copy and paste on social media or in an email as a way of inviting your friends and family to join us this Sunday.
Thank you, Spry Church, for all you do to serve our community, and thank you in advance for what I'm sure will be a strong response to support this important cause. It's going to be a great Sunday at Spry Church. I can't wait to see you there!
Many of you are aware of the initiative to raise money for Scholastic books so that every child in our classrooms receives a book every month. This will help them build their home library and give them books to love on without having to return them to school!
My incredible church, Spry Church, has decided to support this initiative! THIS SUNDAY, Spry Church will donate $1 for every single person who attends one of our services!
Like traditional? Come at 9:00!
Prefer contemporary? Come at 9:45 or 11:00!
It’s a great time to try out Spry and support an awesome cause!! Hope to see you there!!!
