Volunteer Book Available
All areas need more help! Please think about adding your name to one of the categories especially if you don’t have a job. The more people in each job makes for fewer times on the schedule. If you are not sure what is required of you for a job ask Patricia or Donna. This schedule starts December 3 until February 18, therefore, be sure to report any time away. Also, a big thank you to all the new volunteers!
Thank you to Lou DeAngelis and Bob Vernon for performing maintenance required in the sanctuary. Notice… no more green balloon? Thank you again for going beyond the limits.

Please consider helping with the Christmas decorations. Anyone interested in coordinating? We usually gather at the church one Saturday morning to do a variety of tasks in preparation for the Sunday service. A sign up sheet will be posted on the bulletin board in the front foyer for those interested in helping.
The Giving Tree
Each Sunday from November 19 to December 10 you will see a tree covered with stars in the front foyer of the church. Each star is a request for a new toy. (ie: boy 6 years or girl 8 years). Please consider removing 1 or more stars and purchasing a toy for the child on your star. Many of the children involved will receive only 1 gift at Christmas time and we hope to make it a well chosen new gift. There will be large boxes under the tree to receive the unwrapped gifts. These will be taken to Community Care for distribution after December 10.
Thank you for your consideration to take part in this project and for making a difference in a child’s Christmas. Jean.
Rebecca will be away on vacation November 26 till December 1. The office will still be open Tuesday till Friday and Patricia will be fielding all calls.
