Items must be returned to the church by December 15th and placed in the bin by the tree. They should not be wrapped but placed in a bag with the tag listing the items. The Foster Success Foundation will distribute them for us! Take a tag and help a local family this year!
COUNCIL MEETING December 12, 2018.
WE NEED your old Christmas cards! As part of the congregation’s annual holiday caroling to local nursing/assisted living facilities, handmade cards are given to the residents. We can re-purpose your old cards-extras not sent or ones you received. We cut up the cards and reuse the images. There will be a collection box in the narthex. Reduce, reuse, recycle! Thank you!
Offering Envelopes for 2019 are available in the narthex. Please take a moment to pick up your envelopes. The envelope number should be the same as last years. If they are not, please do not use and contact the church office at 412-835-4590.
