Ladies Craft Night
November 8th at 6:30 pm
This month, the Ladies Craft Night will be held a week earlier so there will be no conflicts for setting up for the Gingerbread House Extravaganza. We will be making tea towel angels so make sure you bring at least one matching set of a tea towel, dish cloth and a pot holder. These can be found for a reasonable price at the Dollar Store. If you don't wish to make this project, feel free to bring another project or just come to socialize! As usual, bring a snack to share.
There will be no Ladies' Craft Night in December.
Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Ingathering
We will be collecting the Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes at the front of the sanctuary on November 11th during the morning Worship Service. Make sure the boxes have been filled according to the instructions in the available pamphlets and that the shipping has been paid for. Secure the lids of the boxes of rubber bands. Thank you to those that were able to fill shoeboxes for the children of the world!
We have been collecting canned peas for ProjectShare and instant mashed potatoes, instant stuffing and canned cranberry sauce for the Newville Food Bank. Donated food items may be dropped off in the glass lobby on the display no later than Wednesday, November 14th.
