Announcements for the week of November 4, 2012

Election Day Chowder and Bake Sale – Grace Ladies will be selling chowder to go and baked goods on Election Day. Any donations of baked goods would be greatly appreciated!

Disaster Relief Team – The Eastern District is putting together a Disaster Relief Team which will respond to requests for help within the Eastern District in the wake of disasters like Hurricane Sandy.  We are currently looking for individuals who may be willing to volunteer to help conduct real site cleanup and assistance.  If you are willing to have your name listed as a potential volunteer please contact the church office.

Harvest Food Collection -There are two Sunday’s and our Thanksgiving service left to donate to our annual Harvest Food Collection.  All non-perishable (boxed and canned) foods are welcome and very much needed this year.  We will restock our own food pantry with your donations, and any extras we receive will be delivered to the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry on Military Road which serves the LaSalle area.  Your generosity toward this project is so appreciated by our neighbors in need.
 
Turkeys – Area food pantries need donations of frozen turkeys for the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  If you care to donate a turkey, it can be placed in the downstairs kitchen freezer, or you can place it on a table in the narthex or chapel on Sunday morning.  We will move it to the downstairs freezer for you.  Thank you for helping your neighbors in need to celebrate your generosity this holiday season.
 
Social Ministries – will meet this Wednesday, November 7, at 6 p.m.  We will be discussing our budget and our upcoming projects, including the Advent Giving Tree.  New members to the committee are always welcome.
