FullSizeRenderCOMMUNITY CHRISTMAS PROJECT REPORT

Thanks to all our very generous members and friends, over 70 beautifully decorated and absolutely stuffed Christmas stockings and hats were delivered to East High School on Tuesday. From there they will be gifted to homeless children and youth in our community. This could not have happened without those who gave so many personal care items, snack foods and Christmas candy, socks, hats, gloves, underwear, and the cutest toys! Plus, we collected $580 in small gift cards that will be given to the teenagers.

In addition, we have distributed wonderful warm winter clothing to Comea Shelter, Wyoming Coalition for the Homeless, Family Promise, and Safehouse. Boxes of food donations have been given to families in need.

There are not enough words of gratitude for the generous support of this project. You should all feel proud!

Audette for a simple support circle Sunday, Dec. 20th. Although not therapy, studies do show that having community and an opportunity to share can make a positive difference.

As the group wishes, we will also meet in Jan. & Feb.

Slam-Nuba-600x4009th-12th Grade and interested adult chaperones:

REGISTRATION FOR THE Mountain Desert District MLK Conference is now open!

“This year, the MLK Summit will focus on Black Lives Matter. The Denver poet, Suzi Q, has written an amazing song with the help of NO Enemies (Flobots) promoting racial activism.  The words go, “I am a sleeping giant, there lives a riot in my bones.”  Suzi’s words are a call to action in the work against oppression. And, as a faith community, we are called to work for an end to the injustices faced by people of color in our communities, so that every person is treated equally and has a fair chance at life.”

Do not miss out on this wonderful opportunity! Register soon so we can coordinate rides. Contact Ms. Marcie if your are an adult interested in chaperoning this event.

gamesCleaning out your closet to make room for Santa’s loot?

Your games, puzzles and other activities that are “so last year” may be just what our Faith Development classrooms need!

Donations will be accepted in designated buckets in the Rainbow room.

Please only gently used, fully functional donations. We’re looking for activities (puzzles, games, puppets etc.) not toys or stuffed animals. Thank you for helping our classrooms become interactive and fun learning stations!


groceryFeed your family; help the Church; Support Local Business

The Church currently has a significant inventory in scrip which is redeemable at several local grocers.  The idea is simple:  The Church buys the scrip at a slight discount and when you buy it, the church gets that small profit (free money!) and our liquid cash flow improves.  You then use the scrip at the participating grocer just as you would cash.  Why wouldn’t we do this?  As we enter the Holidays, food purchases tend to increase.  Use scrip and you help the Church with each dollar you spend!

Contact Shelley in the Office for more information.

Paul Howard, Treasurer
