Announcements for 12/23/18

OFFICE HOURS:  Please note that the office will have shortened hours this week.  Wednesday the 26th and Thursday the 27th 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM.

GIVING TREE:  It’s not too late to donate to our annual Giving Tree project.  We are able to accept donations through December and will deliver your gifts during the beginning of January to the local agencies we are supporting.  Please take a tag from the trees and return the item requested to the tables in the narthex or chapel by the end of December.

PLEASE NOTE:  Sunday School and Bible classes will not be held on December 23 and December 30.  Classes will resume with a “Welcome Back Breakfast” on January 6 at 9:00 AM.

NIAGARA FALLS MEALS ON WHEELS has been designated for our December special mission envelopes.  This is a local program that is not connected to any other “Meals On Wheels” agencies, which means that they are able to offer assistance to those in our city that would otherwise fall through the cracks.  Their staff of four minimum wage workers and several volunteers deliver nutritious meals to elderly and disabled that cannot shop or cook for themselves.  If you are able to support their mission, please place your special mission envelope in the offering plate before the end of December.  If you wish to use the convenience envelopes located in the pews, please clearly mark the envelope “December special mission”.

YEAR-END CONTRIBUTIONS, in order to qualify for the 2018 tax year, must be received or postmarked by December 31. We do have a service on Dec 30, and all offerings received there will be 2018.
