HPUMC to host annual teacher’s luncheon
At 12:30 p.m. on Monday, August 17, Highland Park United Methodist Church will host our annual teacher’s luncheon at Highland Park Elementary School. This luncheon is important because it helps build our relationship with a local elementary school and welcomes the community into our church family. We will serve baked potatoes to approximately 50 teachers and 15 student teachers. In order to provide baked potatoes at the luncheon, we are still in need of a few key ingredients. These missing ingredients include one can of chili, three servings of bacon bits, one large sack of lettuce, two bags of croutons, a package of more than 50 paper plates and a package of more than 50 paper saucers. If you can provide the items by Monday, please place your name on the sign-up sheet on the church bulletin board outside of the sanctuary or call the church at (405)372-8001. We look forward to providing a delicious lunch to a group of influential teachers in Stillwater.
Mission Project: Highland Park Elementary
Our relationship with Highland Park Elementary School continues to grow despite the relocation. The partnership will remain strong if we continue to work with them. In the past, we have helped with tutoring, provided reading buddies and last year replaced our Christmas Store with a school supplies drive. The drive was a success! Although we will no longer hold a Christmas store, we will continue to provide school supplies to the elementary school and show them how much we value their role in the community. Highland Park Elementary School wants us to provide school supplies because it seems that a number of students are unable to complete their homework because they don’t have the necessary supplies at home. Our goal is to provide a 24 count pack of crayons, package of markers, pencils, glue sticks and a pencil sharpener for each student in a grade level. We hope to have all of these school supplies ready for handout during the first week of classes. Please drop supplies off at the church by Sunday, August 23 in order to meet that goal. Supplies may be placed in the hallway by the sanctuary.
