***NOTICE***

Choir Members are needed for the National Day of Prayer.

It has been suggested that we try to combine the beautiful voices from all the CCEA member churches for this event.  It certainly sounds like a great idea.  Choir members from St. Rose and Trinity coming together in song over 25 years ago is the way that the CCEA was founded.  During this 25th Anniversary year it would be great to go back to what brought us together as an association. 

Trinity church already has a well-established choir.  I would love to hear from other church members that would like to join with Trinity's choir members for this event.  Mikki Senn is director of Trinity choir.  Mikki has agreed to help pull this effort together and has arranged for two rehearsals on Wednesday April 26 and May 3rd at 7:30 pm at Trinity Church.

You do not need to be good, this is not a competition.  You just need to have the desire to worship God in song.  

Everyone can sing, Just Show Up!!

Many Blessings,

Eileen 

 

****NOTICE****

Inappropriate household donations: 

In order to rid the CCEA of the items left in the parking lot, it took three CCEA volunteers to load the items in my husband’s truck.  It took my husband and two other old men to unload them at the county dump and cost to the CCEA was $14.  This is time and money that could have been better expended.  We do not accept mattresses or old large TVs.  Do not leave items when there is no one at the CCEA to accept them.  CCEA hours operation Tuesday and Wednesday 9-noon.

 

CCEA is blessed with two new partners:

Pat's Pizza - Elkton

Dollar General  - Chesapeake City

Welcome St. Peter's Anglian Church

to our association. 

 

Let them know we appreciate their support!

Thank You from the Food Pantry!

I want to thank everyone for their response to the needs of the Food Pantry.  

 

Please keep the donations coming.  We now provide food to almost as many clients in a week as we used to provide to a month's worth of clients just 2 years ago.  Just today, we had two people come in who needed food for their families.  Neither had satisfactory vision to fill out the forms.  We were able to provide food and because of a donation of magnifying reading glasses, we were also able to provide reading glasses.  It was so rewarding to see how excited these folks were to be able to see well enough to read and write.  

 

So please remember, no matter what you give, there is someone out there who cannot afford to buy it and is very grateful for your donation.  Please keep the food coming.  The shelves are looking much better, but the food goes out as fast as it comes in.  

 

Thank you again for responding to our need......

 

As always, anything you can give is gratefully accepted.....

Thanks for supporting the food pantry!
