A HUGH Thank you to everyone that gave and helped wrap the “Samaritan’s Purse” Operation Christmas Child Shoe Boxes, and “A Touch of Christmas Fair” Raffle Baskets. This Church Family has a big heart and when we all work together there is nothing that cannot be accomplished as shown by the 30 shoe boxes that we turned in and the grand successful fair that we all just pulled off again.  This bulletin is being printed before the fair has started but with God’s help and faith it will be a success!.

If you would like to help with a finger food item, there is a sign-up sheet in Johnson Hall.   A Donation Basket for the foundation will be available starting next Sunday in the back of the Sanctuary.   Checks should be made out to the “Travis Mills Foundation”.
