Hands to Work, Hearts to God

Let There Be Light!

We are collecting LED light bulbs for the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry. With the increase in electricity prices, this is one way we can help our neighbors light their homes. Please bring in an LED (60-100 watt) lightbulb. Donations may be placed in the baskets in the Narthex or outside the office, or dropped off at the Green Gargoyle during shop hours.

Holiday Missions for December

The Angel Tree project supports needy children to ensure they receive Christmas gifts. Choose an Angel card which lists a child’s age, clothing size, and items wished for. Purchase and wrap the gifts and return to church by December 11th. The Knitten Tree will accept items of warmth (hats, mittens, gloves, winter socks) for adults and children from Sunday, November 27 through Sunday, December 18. Your generous contributions to these ministries will be distributed through local agencies.
