GOOD NEWS FROM OUR DEACONS’ SHOP
(Our clothing recycling ministry)
* This past Thursday was an overflowing day down at the shop – the shop was
kept continually busy until 11:10 a.m.! Our “sign-in sheet” was so crowded that
a second attendance sheet was filled up with names of folks served.
* Over 50 have signed up for the Deacons’ Christmas Ministry
* We received a call from the daughter of a long time client and friend of the
Deacon Shop. She reported her father was very ill – could she come in and sign
up for a Christmas Breakfast for him? We said “of course”, but it was a reminder
of how important our Deacons Christmas Ministry is to so many.
* Remember to look in the Church’s Newsletter for the Deacons Breakfast/Food
Basket form and fill out on how you can help with this year’s breakfast/food
basket. Drop the forms off in the church office or the offering plate.

Nursery – Each week, we’ll have two people “on call” to leave the sanctuary and staff the nursery if the need arises. This flexibility will help us to serve visiting families while still conserving our resources. Please contact Gale Swanka or Miss Adriane to reserve an “on-call” week. We appreciate your support of being a welcoming place for families with small children!
