October has been a busy month. Thank all who contributed canned goods on Harvest Sunday. Your donations have been delivered to Our Daily Bread and the Veteran’s Food Pantry. We will be receiving donations until November 16, so that if you missed Harvest Sunday you can still be involved.
The Neighborhood Suppers continue to be successful. In Sept. in addition to supper we handed out fresh produce provided by the West Ohio Food Bank. We had way too much and if we do this again will request smaller amounts. We delivered our surplus to Our Daily Bread and they were thankful to receive it as were the participants at the church supper. October’s supper will be on the 29th. We have scheduled a supper for Nov. 26 and one for Dec. 17th. Your hospitality, outreach and mission committees are working cooperatively on this project.
We are working on plans for December Projects that will include Christmas gift wrapping here at the church with donations to benefit Samaritan House. Please plan on using this service as you begin your Christmas shopping. We will be wrapping on December 13th and 14th. We may be calling on you for help, so please think about how and when you can help. Times for both days will be announced at church services and in bulletin.
We will again have our Christmas Angel tree for children through the Salvation Army. Watch for the Angel tree in the narthex the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Your gifts will need to be at the church by Sunday, December 8th.
Also, we had our Peace & Global Witness offering on October 6th and we received $289.00.
As always we most sincerely thank you for all of your help and participation in these projects!
For the Mission Committee,
