COMMUNITY SHARING Final food offering for the year!  Next Sunday, December 1st is our final food offering to Community Sharing, our local food bank, for 2019.  Please help us surpass last year's giving.  Take a green bag home (from the red wagon in Friendship Hall,) fill it with food to help feed hungry people and bring it back next Sunday.  Let's end the year generously, fulfilling Jesus' command to feed the hungry.  
DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE IN THE CONGREGATION IN NEED OF LOVING CARE? We have amazing Deacons in this congregation, who lovingly visit members at home or in the hospital. If you, or someone you know, would like a visit, some homemade soup or other assistance from the Deacons, please contact Cindy Vogel or Lynn Rogers.
