Betty Wentz one of our members has made some beautiful jewelry. Two anchor pendants and a beautiful cross bracelet. She has given them to us to raffle off with the proceeds going to the New Hope Food Pantry. Please stop by and write your name on the slip of paper and place it into the box. Your ticket is 1 dollar. You may place that in the can next to the box. Thank you to Betty for a creative way of using your talents to share God’s love with those in need.
Instead of getting your “knickers in a knot” about who says Merry Christmas to you or Happy Holidays, or when or where you can put your nativity display, why not invite someone to come to church on Sunday to hear the real story of how God came into the world to love and save sinners? Let’s try to make this Christmas very meaningful by sharing Christ.
Now that the Christmas tree has been emptied of our ornaments we need to fill it up with hats and mittens. Please bring in a hat and/or mittens/gloves to hang on the tree. Remember to bring some of every size. We will distribute them to those who have need of them. Thanks for sharing the warmth of God’s great and amazing love.
