Announcements for the week of December 16, 2012

Congregational Voters’ Meeting – after the Worship Service today to discuss and vote on the budget for next year. This is an important meeting, please plan on attending. Your input is important.

Food Collection – THANK YOU!  Your generous donations to our Harvest Food Collection enabled us to restock our food pantry and deliver 15 boxes of food to St. Vincent de Paul’s food pantry on Military Road.  The St. Vincent de Paul volunteers were tremendously grateful for our help.  They have been overwhelmed with requests for food this year, and have had to purchase more food than ever before.  The need continues to grow.  They wish to express their thanks and wishes for a Merry Christmas to all who helped make this project a success again this year!

Advent Giving Trees – have been set up at both entrances to the church.  This annual Social Ministries project helps us support several agencies in Niagara Falls, including the Magdalene Project (working with homeless women and at risk children), Summit Life Outreach (for teens in crisis pregnancies), Community Mission, and Heart & Soul Food Pantry.  If you can support this project, please take a paper ornament from the tree, purchase the suggested item, and return it to the tree table at either entrance to the church.  All donations will be delivered after Christmas to help during the cold winter months ahead. Hats, mittens, and gloves of all sizes are needed to help the homeless and poor in our community stay warm over the coming winter months.  Please remember your neighbors in need as you are doing your Christmas shopping. Thank you for your generosity!

Little Glimmers of Light – is an easy to read and inspirational book recently published by Rev. Elton Rengsdorf. It contains stories to entertain, inform and enlighten your path. Each book is $14.95 and when you buy a copy, you also make a gift to the LWML. Copies are available from Ursula Zimmerman or Erika Tuscher.
