 KRC’s share of support is $5,788 this year for services and resources to be provided for us by the Reformed Church in America at the local, regional, and national levels. EACH MEMBER’S SHARE OF THIS YEAR’S CLASSIS ASSESSMENT HAS BEEN SET AT $85.12 (up $3.40 from last year).  All who are able to do so are encouraged to offer, over and above regular giving, their share of this support.  The full share does not have to be given at one time, but may be given in as many increments as are convenient. For those who are able, a donation of $3.27 per week for the remaining 26 weeks of this year would meet an individual member’s share. All contributions made for this purpose should be clearly designated, “Classis Assessment.”

MANY THANKS AND BLESSINGS TO THE KRC FAMILY FOR THEIR GENEROSITY IN SUPPORT OF THE VALATIE FOOD PANTRY.  85 families were served in the month of April, including 45 handicapped senior citizens, 144 adults, and 122 children.  Foods that are always popular and needed are evaporated milk; coffee; sugar; boxed cereals; pancake mix; syrup; jelly; canned meats, fruits, and vegetables; spaghetti sauce; pasta; mac & cheese; dinner helpers; apple sauce; juice; cake & brownie mixes. Donations may be placed in the collection containers available in the front and side entryways of the church.

 Many KRC family and friends have, in the past, provided cut flowers for the pulpit in celebration of an anniversary or birthday, in honor of a special day or event, and in loving memory of family and friends who have passed away.  During the summer months, those of you who are gardeners are invited to arrange and display your own garden flowers on a Sunday of your choice.  If you are interested in providing flowers for a particular Sunday, please contact Dawn, 758-7564.

The KRC Cemetery Committee is pleased to announce the opening of Kinderhook Cemetery’s COLUMBARIUM, a portion of the cemetery specifically designed for cremation burials.  If you would like more information, please speak to Greg Clause, cemetery supervisor, or Jim Dunham, Cemetery Committee chairperson.

"THE OLDE DUTCH AND SUCH" CRAFTS GROUP MEETS ON FRIDAYS AT 9:30 A.M. in the main floor classroom opposite the church office. We are creating new plans and new items for the 2013 KRC Bazaar, and we are very much in need of new members and new ideas.  Last year’s preparation workshops were full of fun, laughter, and good fellowship, and the bazaar was a huge success.  We warmly welcome you to join us in our efforts to make this year’s even better!

We are in need of empty 28 oz plastic coffee containers, the type usually used by Folger's or Maxwell House to package their coffee.  Kindly bring any containers you may have to the church office, and they will be picked up from there.  Many thanks.
