One of our confirmands, Josh Goode, - a member of our 2014-15 Confirmation Class is heading up PROJECT HELP with our local Food banks - “Project Help” was initiated by Josh to provide supplies to needy families for purchase of hygiene and other supplies that will help stretch their food budget. Josh is collecting items such as toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, detergent, tissues, etc….. There is a drop off box located in the auditorium. Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity. Let’s keep the Christmas spirit of giving alive 52 weeks a year!
PRAYER CHAIN UPDATE - We are revising the Prayer Chain. Those who are on the Prayer Chain will remain unless you let the Office know otherwise. Those who would like to help with the Prayer Chain are welcome to join. If you are interested in being a part of the chain, you may call the Office (363-7590) and let Linda know.
If you are not aware that we do have a Prayer Chain - the chain is activated whenever one may have a need for prayer when family or friends are having surgery, those who are 'terminal,' to notify us of a death or accident -- or whenever the need for prayers occurs.
