There will be a Congregational Voters’ Meeting on Sunday, December 12th after the Worship Service. The 2011 Budget will be discussed and voted on at this time. Please plan on attending.

Advent is almost here and we need sponsors either individuals or groups to host our Simple Supper. The first one on December 1, will be hosted by the Wednesday morning Craft Group. We still need hosts for Dec. 8 and 15. If you would like to help, contact Pastor or the church office.

TURKEYS: We are collecting non-perishable food items and TURKEYS for donation to those in need over the holidays. Your donations will be used to restock our food pantry, and extras will be delivered to area food
banks. If you donate a turkey, it can be stored in the downstairs kitchen
freezer. An usher will assist you with this if needed. Please remember
this project as you shop. Our collection will end on Thanksgiving, which is just around the corner. Your help is appreciated.

Our FOOD PANTRY collection table has been set up in the narthex. We will continue to accept your donations of non-perishable food items until Thanksgiving. We use your gifts to restock our own pantry, and extras go to our area food banks. The need will be great over the coming holidays, so please remember this project as you do your grocery shopping. Your help is appreciated!

Our Special Mission Envelopes for the rest of this year will be designated to “Hearts for Haiti”. This is an effort by First Trinity Lutheran Church on Niagara Falls Boulevard to raise $35,000 to rebuild a Lutheran church and school damaged in this year’s earthquake. Since the earthquake, there has been no organized educational system in the effected areas. First Trinity sends a group of their members to Haiti annually to minister to the needs of the Haitian people, who continue to be in great need since the devastating earthquake. Each dollar we donate will buy one cinder block for their rebuilding effort!
