WORSHIP AND BRUNCH

What better way to welcome the coming new year than to worship & fellowship together! On Sunday, December 30 we will do just that with Worship & Brunch in Cartwright Hall at 10 a.m.

You are invited to bring your favorite brunch item to share, but you do not NEED to provide anything. Let us ring in the New Year and give thanks for the past year! God is good!

CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES’ FOOD PANTRY

Thanks to the following volunteers who helped with Christian Ministries’ Food Pantry on either November 28, 29, or 30:  Cheryll Crose, Dick & Marcia Miller, Pat Patterson, Jim & Nancy Reece, and Glen Sulanke.

NURSING HOME GIFT LIFT

Thanks to everyone who participated through buying gifts or making a monetary donation. We were able to provide gifts for 49 nursing home residents who otherwise may not have received anything for Christmas. A true blessing!

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The Missions & Benevolence Team is sponsoring a week of meals for the Men’s Sleeping Room of Christian Ministries during the week of January 13-19, 2019. Each day we will provide two meals: breakfast from 6-7:30 a.m., and supper from 6-7:30 p.m. Participants are encouraged to bring food already prepared, or you may fix what is available at the shelter. We will need to know when you sign up if you are providing food for your meal. Financial help is always welcome.

Sign-up begins Sunday, December 30. Please prayerfully consider where you can help. For more information, contact Shirley Bookout at (765) 744-1207.

 

 

A NOTE FROM CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES

“The holidays are upon us, and during this time we typically see many more clients in our shelters and food pantry as well as clients that utilize our Baby Care program and Blanket Cupboard. Many of the local churches that support us do so with monetary donations and volunteers, but we can also always use the following items to off-set our expenses for our programs and services.

If you would like to donate any of the listed items below you can do so from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday-Friday. Just come to our back door at 401 E. Main St., ring the doorbell, and someone will assist you. We appreciate you so much during this holiday season!”

TIME CAPSULE UPDATE

The materials from the 125th Anniversary time capsule have been repaired (to the extent possible) and placed into three binders, which are located on the top of the bookcases in the northeast corner of Sulanke Commons (under the windows where the time capsule and marker stone are currently located). The materials are organized into categories, so they will be much easier to review.

We invite you to submit materials for the new Sesquicentennial Time Capsule. There are paper “2018 Sesquicentennial Time Capsule Surveys” available on the bookcases. You can also email an MS Word version of the form if you prefer. Of course, you may prefer to write a letter from scratch, which is what about half the people did last time. Please submit your completed forms and any other materials such as photos (please label) you would like to include in the time capsule to the labeled box on the bookcase in Sulanke Commons.
