Don’t forget “Soup”er Bowl Sunday and your opportunity to help others by sharing soup of any kind.  You can place your soup on the organ.  This mission opportunity is a project of the Youth on Mission.

 

 

 

Operation Christmas Child – The suggested purchases for January at scarves, hats, and gloves.  If you purchase an of these items , or any other item, you can leave them on the table in the Sunday School class next to the choir room.  Thanks for helping get us off to an early start.   If you are one of those people who like to give money and let someone else do the shopping, you can give to the special account for missions.   Either way, thank you for helping us with this worthy project.

 

 

 

We will officially end the collection for the Lottie Moon Offering Sunday.  Of course, it is never too late, or too early, to give to any of the mission offerings.

 

 

 

Jason will be flying home today and returning with his family in about three weeks.  Jennie is still with us.  I cannot explain all they have done/are doing, but will simply say they have been very helpful.

I’ve been keeping up with the others who are sick.  Today, I just want to say there are many opportunities to help families with a member hospitalized as well as families of those who are at home.
Faith makes us want to act.  Do something to encourage others to attend church, encourage the sick and their families, share memories with the homebound, etc.  You’ll be blessed as you bless others.
