Dress A Girl is in need of dresses. 

Happy almost-fall! Hope all is well and you are sewing!  BECAUSE...we need dresses! We currently have 544 in inventory, with 200 promised to an organization to be taken this week, so we are really low for this time of year!  And actually, we have NO size 14s, as we recently sent those all with a group to the Phillipines!  

So, it's time to gear up and sew, sew, sew!  We will need 2000 to send to our Christmas groups by the end of November.  We typically send 1000 to the west coast regional Operation Christmas Child headquarters, where they check all of the Christmas boxes and use dresses to fill ones that might need a bit more; and 1000 to Cross Catholic's Box of Joy, another organization that does Christmas boxes.  That means we have a lot of work to do this fall!  If you've been part of Dress-a-Girl but haven't been sewing, now is a good time to re-engage!  If you have friends who sew but aren't involved, ask them to do a few kits.  If you have finished dresses, please bring them to a Sew-Fest OR drop them off at our house anytime (1557 Hollyhock, Livermore); or if you have some half-finished ones, please finish OR bring and we'll find someone to finish them for you.  Any way you figure's time to SEW!  Feel free to stop by to pick up kits anytime (text or call 925-352-8447 and we'll be happy to set them out on our front bench for you!)  THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!!

Thanks to the ladies of Lafayette United Methodist group for 260 dresses, 210 of which will go with Susan Carter to Tanzania this month!  Here's their group showing their dresses just before they received a blessing at their Sunday service!  We'll hope for some pix from Susan in Tanzania too!
September 14, 9 am-3 pm
St. Michael's Hall
Corner of 3rd & Maple, Livermore
Hope to see you there!  
We need you all!

What's more fun than playing ping pong during the summer?  Having a tournament to show off your talents and passion for fun!  Sign up to be a part of this fun event. This is an ongoing tournament; line up a date with one of the players.  Questions? Speak with Dwight Stone or Toni Ann Gatzke.  
There is still time to make a gift or a pledge toward our Capital Campaign for the Sonshine Preschool Building Project.  The work of God’s kingdom is plentiful, and we are responding with God’s abundance for this special project;
Thank you to all who have given & pledged so far!
Please remember we still have our weekly and monthly ministries also continuing that need your support.  Your regular weekly/monthly mission support stewardship gifts are needed and much appreciated for the blessings they bring.

Lake Tahoe is a sublime mix, with big-city entertainment tucked into the beautiful snow-capped Sierra Mountains. It’s where people go to rejuvenate their spirit, rediscover their family, relax in scenic splendor-and do a little gambling. 
WorldMark South Shore is poised to take full advantage of Lake Tahoe’s charms. Skiing, water skiing, mountain biking, kayaking, jeep adventures and cruises are all part of the fun. The resort is just a 10-minute walk from Nevada Beach State Park and a six-minute drive from the Gondola at Heavenly or the casinos in Stateline.
This is a great place; Carol and I have stayed here a few times.   No Pets Allowed!!!!
