Deacon's Mitten Tree
The MITTEN TREE is up early this year!!
We will be accepting donations until Sunday, Dec. 15, after church. This gives the area schools time to distribute our much needed donations before school closes for Christmas break.
We need SMALL WARM mittens/gloves/hats and scarves to accommodate pre-school thru elementary school age children. Store bought, homemade, we will take it all!!!
The need is distressingly great right here in Waterford. We have one elementary school requesting items sized for 3-5 year olds for their more than 170 students in Head Start. All collected items go to Waterford Schools.
Kids’ Christmas Play
Dec 15th, During Worship Service
Sign up due Nov 3rd
Roles assigned Nov 17th
Individual practices on Sundays after church beginning Nov 24th
Dress Rehearsal, December 14th, 10am-12pm, Lunch to follow
Our holiday tradition of providing Christmas presents for people in need will begin Sunday, Nov. 24. Once again, we will provide gifts for two families and one senior citizen through Lighthouse North. Come downstairs to coffee hour and take an ornament off the tree which will have a gift item of your choice for one of our adopted people. Sign the sheets provided to indicate the gift you selected. If shopping isn’t your thing, you may also donate money so that those who like to shop will have your donation to do so.
Parking Lot Campaign
Notice anything new lately? You guessed correctly. It's our new parking lot on the north side of the building. Next time you come to church take a drive through it and let us know what you think. But the work isn't done yet. The south lot needs to be done in the next couple years too. So this fall we're kicking off a multiyear parking lot campaign and we need your help. Pledge forms are available in the Narthex and Church Office. We ask that you prayerfully consider supporting this campaign.
Check out this month's informer for event dates and times or just click on December Fellowship.
Check out the New Floor
The recent beautiful up-grade to our Sanctuary floor has a bit of a story behind its realization. Go read this month's informer to read about it. Thanks again to all who helped turned vision into reality!
