Sunday School Christmas Party

 

Mitten TreeCHRISTMAS MITTEN TREE

It's not too late! We are still gathering items for our Christmas Mitten Tree. Please help us decorate it with warm hats, gloves, scarves, socks, etc. to warm cold and hurting bodies and hearts this Christmas season!

CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS: Members of the congregation are invited to place an ornament on the Christmas tree in the Sanctuary in memory of a loved one or for any special intention or occasion. Please speak to Rev. Ian if you would like it acknowledged.

New Advent Folder

The Advent Folder which we have become so accustomed to using when making special Advent contributions, is no longer available. Since the income from this source is very important to the life and work of our Church, we have produced our very own 'in-house' folder.

As we move through the Season of Advent, it is our hope that members of our congregation will continue to give, as usual, through the use of this new folder.  Or, if you prefer, online donations may be made on this website.

Thank you very much and God Bless!
From the Stewardship Committee

A Message from Bridges to Hope

Bridges to HopeSEASONS GREETINGS & HEARTFELT THANKS from BRIDGES TO HOPE: Your kindness this past year has helped relieve hunger for over 10,000 of our neighbors, distribute 600+ filled school bags and allowed 360 families the comfort of sharing a turkey dinner last Christmas. Did you know that just $25 can feed 1-2 people for four days?

Merry Christmas from the Staff, Board of Directors and Volunteers of Bridges to Hope Food Aid Center. The generosity of your congregation’s food and financial donations is the backbone of the important work we do and allows us to relieve hunger and restore dignity in our community.


 

Beverage Container Recycling

DOING CHRISTMAS CLEANING?

Great opportunity to support our Youth Group Beverage Container Recycling: Our Youth Group collects beverage containers for recycling. If you would like to drop off your beverage recycling at the church, here’s what can be recycled: aluminum can; plastic containers; glass bottles; steel cans; drink boxes (tetra); mini sips (drink pouches) etc. (Please wash out all bottles and remove all caps before dropping them off.)

Please note: we are requesting beverage containers only!

From SNAC to all those who participate - Thank you for your support!
