CHOIR BRASS:: I would like to hire brass for the Feast of Pentecost. It will cost approximately 400 dollars. If you can help us defray this cost, please speak to me or contact me.
backpack lunch program: Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will repay him for his deed. Proverbs 19:17
Once again this year, Aiken Elementary is sponsoring a Backpack Lunch Program. Each Friday nearly 50 students take home a bag of food for meals over the weekend. With about 60% of the student body receiving free or reduced lunch, 50 students is a small portion of those in need. How can you help? St. Thaddeus is again being asked to provide certain food items each week. The items we are asked to give are individual packs of crackers and individual boxes of cereal or oatmeal packs. You can place these in the narthex or drop them in the church office. If you have questions, please contact Marianne Swearingen. email@example.com
church office construction: The church office will be temporarily relocated, while new duct work is installed, to the Head of School office in the same building. Please use the school office entrance. The phone number will remain the same.

Men of St. Thaddeus (M.O.S.T): We will meet from 6:00 to about 8:00 p.m. on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, in the Stevenson-McClelland building for a meal and fellowship. We’ll start cooking around 6:15 p.m. The purpose of this group is to get to know each other better, and to figure out what we want to do next month. Here are the “rules”: Bring your entrée to cook on the grill. Salad, “taters” and liquid refreshment will be provided. A donation to cover cost of salad, “taters” and liquid refreshment of $2 appreciated, but not required. Programs are optional; if you want one, you are in charge (here’s a meeting without an Agenda—that’s unique). This is “men’s night out”.
