*The communion offering for August 7 goes toward the Girls Health Education in Nepal.  “All around the world we eat different foods, but we all need good nutrition to grow strong.  As a church working together, we can help each other to stay healthy and grow.”  This is a quote from our missionary, Katherine Parker’s letter to the children of Aldersgate UMC Bellevue, WA.  Our communion offering will help provide Nepalese mothers nutrition and health education.
