Giving Tree: There’s still time to participate in our Christmas Giving Tree. There are trees located in the chapel and the narthex with paper ornaments requesting donations of various items for local charities. These items will be delivered after the holidays. Donations will be accepted through New Year’s weekend. If you desire, take an ornament with you and bring the item back to church by New Year’s. The agencies we
are working with have many needs. Your help is appreciated.
Check out the Opportunities to Serve information on the bulletin board next to the office. If you are looking for new ways to get involved in 2011 there might be something just right for you!

Please check each week for cards to sign on our book nook in the chapel. Social Ministries sends greeting cards on a regular basis to help brighten a day or celebrate a special event. The more signatures, the better! If you know of a member or a friend who could use a greeting card, mention it to Carl or Helene Reisig or leave a note in their mailbox.
