This year’s Thanksgiving meal will be hosted by St. Francis tomorrow, Thursday, November 24th at 11:30 am. Ham, Turkey, potatoes and gravy and beverages will be provided. See you there!
Reminder: There will be NO Sunday School classes on November 27th.
We’re needing a few acolytes for the 8:30 service Christmas Eve. We’ll accept any adult acolytes, as well. Please call the office if you’re available.
It’s that time of the year again, and we need your help! We will be decorating the church after the service on December 11th. We have jobs for everyone and the more the merrier. Please plan on staying a little longer to help. We are also in need of a small lighted tree for the kids to decorate in the Parish Hall, about 4 feet tall or shorter. If you have a tree you could donate, please call Father Bob at 436-7767.
The Annual Christmas Cookie Exchange will be held in the Parish Hall on Saturday, December 17th, at 10:00am. We will fill cookies tins (provided by the church) for our Shut-ins. Please bring 3 dozen cookies to share. We hope that will leave 2 dozen for each of us after the tins for Shut-ins are filled. Please bring an empty container for yourself to fill with a delicious variety of sweet treats for your holiday celebrations. Refreshments will also be served. Come for fun and fellowship! Any questions call Barb at 436-7767.
The Daughters of the King have decided to suspend the collection of personal hygiene items for the rest of this year. There are so many other opportunities during the holidays to help our community that need our support.
Thanks your generous outpouring, we’ve been able to provide items to Doves, WNCC Student Life and the Hope Center. We will resume collection the fourth Sunday in January.
