St. Paul’s Mission Committee is happy to announce - BROWN STREET ACADEMY – LET’S PLAY
St. Paul’s UCC – Erin has been given another opportunity to extend a helping hand to our young friends in Jessica Ornburg’s 3rd grade class at Brown Street Academy in Milwaukee. It’s been a long year of online school for them. Jessica wants to encourage “hands on playtime” to spur their imaginations and creativity. With that in mind, she has registered at Target for the items she wants for her classroom.
Purchases can be made with the registry printout at any Target store. OR
*Go to Target.com/registry
*Type in Jessica Ornburg
Or type in Brown Street Academy – Let’s Play
*There is an option to have the item(s) sent directly to Jessica at the school
Let’s welcome these great kids back to the classroom with some extra excitement from their friends at St. Paul’s UCC – Erin.
Cash donations and any questions can be directed to Bernie Chase 262-628-4669.
All donations and items due to Bernie or the church by May 2. Make checks payable to St. Paul’s UCC (write Brown Street on the memo line).
The Mission Committee
If you would close your eyes for a brief moment- and imagine that Russell smile we all know and LOVE and picture him throwing his hands up in the air, as if the Brewers just scored.. that's what it was. Over and Over and Over!!! There truly are no words to actually describe the feeling you get in your heart when you see pure JOY and LOVE overflowing. In that moment, nothing else mattered. He watched as we unloaded a truck FULL of books, magazines, music, movies, snacks, bedding, and TOYS!!! All for him and his friends!! Rock's Clubhouse is officially rockin'!!!!! And they are going to have so much fun!!!
