Disciple Women’s Project - November 2017
Let’s make this an extra-special Christmas. We’ve “adopted” six boys and girls who currently reside in local foster homes, for Christmas. We have their wish lists and are asking for your help to provide Christmas gifts for them this year. There are sign-up sheets in the Narthex along with copies of each child’s “wish list”. We are asking that you sign up and let us know what gift you will be purchasing for the child you’ve chosen, so as to avoid duplicates. If you are not able to shop, but would like to donate to this project, just mark you donation “DW Angel Tree” and drop in the collection basket. Please bring your gifts unwrapped to the church before December 8th. Bless you for blessing a child. May the joyous spirit of Christmas abide within you.
Care Packages for our College Students
Next month we will be sending “care packages” to the college students from our congregation. There will be a box in the Narthex throughout the month of November where you may place items you would like included. Some ideas would be snack items such as nuts, crackers, fruit snacks, ramen noodles and homemade cookies. We would also like notes or cards of encouragement to add to their packages. The Mission Committee will provide the postage. We currently have 10-12 youth in college. Let’s let them know they are still in our thoughts and prayers!
NEW CHURCH OFFICE HOURS

Veteran’s Day Tribute
If you or a family member is a veteran we would like your photograph to share in honor of Veteran’s Day on Sunday, Nov. 12th.
Please drop off your pictures, with your names on them, to the church office by November 1st. Pictures will be scanned and returned.
