Trash Bash

Thank you for signing up to serve at the Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center!  If you are bringing anyone with you, let me know ahead of time so I can get an accurate headcount, please.

I am so excited to announce that we will be participating in Navarre Beach's Sea Turtle Conservation Trash Bash on Saturday, June 30 from 8a-12p!

The set up will be in the parking lot between the Flounder and Sea Gull pavilions (east of the pier; see picture from the attachment) from 8a-12p.  Nicole Stephens (volunteer coordinator) will have gloves, hand sanitizer and garbage bags.  She will also have buckets, but they're first come first served, and the conservation center asks that you tally the trash that you pick up so they can send it to the Marine Science Center.

Please wear your red Love Month shirts!  Use the hashtag #ForNavarre and put it all over social media!  We want to celebrate what's happening this month in the community.  Also, you can text or email me all pictures so we can use them on social media with the church.

Thank you for signing up to serve at the Pensacola Humane Society.  If you are bringing anyone with you, I need to know ahead of time, please.  Please fill out a volunteer form and bring it with you (no fee required, sent via email).  Kids are welcome - but they'll need to fill out a volunteer form with a parent signature.

Gulf Breeze Blessing Bags

You will be meeting tomorrow Saturday, June 9 from 8:30-9:30a.

This event will be specifically making the bags (not delivering them yet) so we can keep them in our cars as we're driving around and find "God appointments" to drop them off.  You will meet at Misty's home (address below), bring the items you choose to bring, assemble the bags, and then take three bags with you to keep in your car.  When you're driving around independently, you will have something to give to the homeless people you see on the streets.

Each person should purchase (new) and bring one set of the following items (these are suggested, and you can modify as you wish!):

  1. 100 Bottled Waters
  2. 100 Flavored Water Packets
  3. 100 Chapsticks
  4. 100 Toothbrushes
  5. 100 Tubes of Toothpaste
  6. 200 Granola Bars/Snacks
  7. 100 Bandaid Boxes
  8. 100 Razors
  9. 100 Travel Bars of Soap

Here's the link to "take" one of these items: https://momentumonline.ccbchurch.com/need_detail.php?need_id=66. Simply click the link, click on "take" next to the items you wish to purchase and bring, and bring them with you on Sunday.

Please remember that each person is responsible for bringing one set of 20 items so we have enough for up to 45 people to participate.
