Would You Please Bake?

The Health and Welfare Committee is requesting your assistance again this year with our Christmas project. Festive tins of cookies will be presented to our more mature members and to those members who may be going through a difficult time. Would you please bake cookies for our church members? The cookies may be any size or any kind.

 

If you are able to assist with this out-reach, would you please have your cookies in the church kitchen by twelve noon on Wednesday, December 12, 2018? Many thanks are extended to you for helping in this manner.

 

OF A SPECIAL NOTE: The Health and Welfare Committee is politely asking for a great turn out of cookies this year. You, our members, have generously baked many, many cookies for these past years, and your time and work have been greatly appreciated. However, we have now lowered the age of those receiving gifts, so more cookies will be needed. If there is a way that you can donate just a little bit more, you will have made a huge difference. FROM OUR HEART TO YOURS------THANK YOU.

 

Delivery Persons Needed

Christmas gifts, prepared by Health and Welfare Committee members, will be delivered to our more mature church members and members who may be experiencing some type of difficulty, but the church will need your help. Would you give a little bit of your time to deliver gifts so that members will know that they are remembered and loved by their church family? If you can help in this manner, please contact Kathy and Steve Lentz at sklentz72@verizon.net. There will also be a sign-up sheet near the Library and Social Room. You may indicate an area(s) in which you will be able to make the deliveries. Gifts will be ready for pickup after Wednesday, December 12 and can be located in Fellowship Hall. Your name and the names/addresses of persons to whom you will be making the deliveries will be attached to a bag(s) containing the gifts. We thank you very much for your willingness to help our church.
