THE YOUTH will be filling Christmas stockings for the Salvation Army, and would love to have your help. You can drop off items in a labeled box in the Centre lobby through Thursday, December 10. You don’t need to worry about bringing enough items to fill a whole stocking because we’re going to combine the items when we assemble the stockings. Please see the list included in December’s newsletter for suggestions.
ADOPT-A-CHILD OUTREACH: We will have 15 children for Adopt-a-Child this year. They will be from three local schools. A sign up sheet will be in the Centre and also on a table outside after church. You may also contact any deacon to sign up.
CONTRIBUTION ENVELOPES for use in 2021 are in the Parlor. Please be certain to pick up the correct box, as they are labelled and numbered.
THORNWELL OFFERING: Thornwell Home for Children in Clinton, South Carolina, has cared for abused, abandoned, and neglected children since 1875. Our annual offering for this ministry will be received on Sunday, November 29. Through the generosity of countless individuals and churches, Thornwell has been and continues to be a place of hope and healing for thousands of children.
IN-PERSON WORSHIP has resumed in the sanctuary. The video will be uploaded following the service, as we are not able at this time to livestream.
