FOOD PANTRY AND CLOTHES CLOSET

Your Food Pantry and Clothes Closet continues to serve those in need in our community. During September, our Food Pantry served 121 households which included 359 individuals. Our needs for the next few weeks include the following:

Paper Grocery Bags with handles – Our supply of these bags is low. If you will bring your grocery bags to church (and collect them from friends and neighbors), it will help us to meet our needs without having to purchase them at a cost of 15-1/2 cents each.

Food for Thanksgiving – We would like to provide our clients with some extra food during November that they can use to make their Thanksgiving meal more special. Canned goods including corn, carrots, cranberries and pumpkin and other items such as jars of gravy, packets of instant mashed potatoes, and boxes of muffin, corn bread or cake mix.

Winter Coats – With the coming of cold weather, our Clothes Closet could use some winter coats for women, men and children so, as you change over your closets from Summer to Winter clothes, consider donating some of your gently used coats and other winter clothing to our Clothes Closet. All donations may be left outside of the Burchette Room on the first floor of the Educational Building. Thank you for your support of these mission opportunities.

UMW

Tuesday, December 4: Our last UMW meeting of the year with entertainment and luncheon.

CHRISTMAS CARDS

Please take time to sign as many Christmas Cards outside the church office for the Shut-Ins while you are at church. If you could do one card for every shut-in, that would be great. The names are already printed on the outside of the cards. Please replace them back in the basket once you have signed them. We would like to collect as many cards as we can from the congregation by Dec. 16! The Shut-Ins will receive the cards plus a box of cookies for Christmas. Please contact Mary Swing for information.

ELF SHOP FOR CHILDREN

The Children’s Elf Shop will be open for business on December 16th from 9:30 – 11:45 a.m. We are looking for clean, gently used items for the shop. Please drop them off in the bin under the table at the church office. The kids will earn Elf dollars to use for purchases by reciting their verses, good behavior, and the good deeds they do without being asked! Thanks for your help! See Liz Turner for more information.
