Christmas Cards. If you would like to send a Christmas card to everyone in the congregation to share your Christmas message, a good way to do that is to send one to the church to be placed in the narthex. The money you may wish to include in your card this year will go toward Kroger cards for the needy. A huge “thank you” to the Grant family for our Christmas trees that are in the sanctuary and narthex.
Food Pantry Volunteers Needed. We are in need of more volunteers to help out with our ministry here. We could use some folks to help out with our food delivery on Wednesdays and also on Thursday afternoon. We have other tasks like bagging food that can be done at any time, and we are very flexible. Even one day a month would be helpful. Please see David Turner if you are interested in helping out.
