Can you believe that November is here? Even though we’ve spent a lot of time mostly in our homes, time has still quickly pasted. Hopefully, next year things will be “back to normal” once again.
Our U.M.W. Unit next meets on Wednesday, November 4th, at 2pm. We will be putting together boxes for Samaritan’s Purse – Operation Christmas Child. ALL WOMEN are invited to come and help assemble the boxes and join in fellowship with other women from our Church.
On Sunday, November 22nd, we will have our THANK OFFERING SUNDAY SERVICE. This year’s special speaker will be Marilyn Nolte who will share about her Prison Ministry. Remember that day to bring back your THANKOFFERING boxes. We will also be asking that you bring along canned goods that will be donated to the two county Food Banks.
Last month at our meeting 12 gift bags were assembled for our church’s shut-ins and were delivered to them.
Thanks to all who supported our fundraiser – the Apple Dumpling Sale. Most of our funds raised go to mission projects.
Louise Gettle, President
