JANUARY MISSION ENVELOPES are designated to support Young Life, an international youth organization with local chapters whose purpose is to bring teens to the knowledge of our loving Savior. Several of our youth are, or have been, involved in Young Life. Their annual fundraising dinner is scheduled for March 26. Donations in January will allow us to submit our gifts early enough to be included in the list of supporters at the dinner. We will also reserve a table for the dinner in March, so if you are interested in attending, watch for a sign up sheet which will be available soon. Dick Crawford has been active with Young Life for many years and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
SOCIAL MINISTRIES will meet today after worship. New members are welcome to attend as we begin our planning for the new year.
THANK YOU for your donations to our Advent Giving Tree. Your gifts will help Summit Life Resources, Heart, Love & Soul, Niagara Gospel Rescue Mission, and the Magdalene Project. All four of these agencies are located in Niagara Falls and are doing wonderful work as they assist our neighbors in need.
