OUR LAUNDRY LOVE MINISTRY is flourishing; however, we could use a little assistance.  We have run out of dryer sheets and with winter fast approaching, and the static cling that comes along with it, we need them.  Please consider picking up an extra box while you are at the market and drop it off in the gathering area.  Any type and brand will be fine even if you have boxes at home that maybe you opened and did not use.  We will take all that we can get.


WARM HEARTS, WARM HANDS, WARM FEET:   Many children of all ages have limited access to warm winter clothing, wearing only ill fitting or borrowed clothing.  We know there is a large population of those children in our local community as we serve them throughout the summer with the summer lunch program.  Their needs continue into the winter.  Beginning November 18th, please bring donations of hats, scarves, gloves, mittens and socks, especially socks to help fill our tree.  The Mitten Tree will be located in the gathering area outside the Sanctuary until December 16th.  All donations will then be delivered to local agencies for distribution.  Please help the Congregational Growth committee reach out to those in need at a time when warm feet and warm hands make for a grateful heart.
