"The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.  The opposite of the art is not ugliness, it's indifference.  The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference.  And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference." 
                                                       -Elie Wiesel

ICM is in need of food donations, and we could really use your help!  Urgent needs are tuna, salmon, chicken in a can or foil pack.  Other ready-to-eat meals such as canned ravioli, beef stew, etc., are also perfect for those living on the street.  Please consider a donation of these items during thus impromptu collection at MPC Wednesday, July 6 through Sunday, July 24.  We will have a designated area in the Welcome Center.  Please contract Nancy Collins ncollins0209@gmail.com or (678) 634-4572 with any questions.

We are in need of volunteers to help out in the pantry at ICM Saturday, July 9th.  Hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Druid Hills United Methodist on Ponce de Leon.  Responsibilities will include greeting and interviewing guests for food needs, packing groceries, and distributing them to the needy guests.  Contact Laura Ulep lauraulep@gmail.com if you would like to help.

Morningside Presbyterian Church will host the Young People's Sacred Harp Singing Convention on Saturday, July 30 at 9 a.m.  People from the southern states will join together to sing hymns using the Sacred Harp style.  You do not have to know how to sing using shape notes.  Contact Jesse Karlsberg jesse@jpkarlsberg.com  for more information.  The convention welcomes folks of all ages and attracts the typical inter-generational cohort.  The name can cause a bit of confusion, but have no fear:  everybody is welcome - including those with "some chronological age on us"!

School will be back in session in no time so we want to prepare now! Making it a great school year for the children in our community is a big deal and we need your help.  The Children's Ministry Mission Team is sponsoring a back-to-school event for children whose parents or caregivers frequently patron the ICM food pantry.  We need backpacks, paper, notebooks, folders, rulers, crayons, pencils, and pens.  Please drop your donation off in the blue bin located in the welcome center.  If your child would like to help distribute school supplies and/or help lead games, crafts on Saturday, July 30 from 1 p.m. - 2 p.m., please contact Elizabethsommerfeld@gmail.com
