News and Events for November 20

Would you like to give gifts to the families in the Family Promise program this Christmas?  We have been asked to buy gift cards instead of clothing, toys, etc., and they will be distributed equally to the guests.  Please bring your gift cards to Betty, Dan or Joan Williams by December 13th and Joan will take them to the Center.  Thank you!

Clean-Out Challenge. As part of our Defying Gravity worship series, here is your challenge: clean out a drawer, closet, room, or area of your home this week and see how it feels. The ease or difficulty of discarding things you no longer use will tell you a lot about the degree of financial gravity you’re experiencing. Set these cast-away items aside, and we’ll be collecting them here at church. Bring your stuff to the Wesley Center or Sanctuary for worship on Sunday, Nov. 20. During worship, we will invite you to bring it forward to “let go” of it, and place it at the altar. For things that can be re-used, we will take them to one of the local store ministries like Goodwill.

Several years ago, donations were made to a designated fund for the children’s bell choir program (current balance of $194.62) and to a designated fund for the children’s rotation Sunday School ministry (current balance of $102.53). We have not done these particular ministries since at least 2008 and perhaps before; and do not anticipate doing them again. We would like to move these funds to the Designated Children’s Ministries fund to be available to more generally support our ministries with children. If you donated any amount to either the children’s bell choir program or the rotation Sunday School, please contact Pastor Dan to discuss this matter .

We will be having poinsettias that can be purchased for a cost of $7.50 each.  If you would like to purchase one in memory /honor of someone, please see Elaine Good or Betty Malone.
