It’s Turkey Time – Bridges of Hope will provide the names of approximately 15 families who are in need of food baskets.

All donations must be at the church no later than Wednesday, November 14.

Help Congregational Life provide the very basic dignities of new undies! Having clean, serviceable underwear is something many of us are lucky enough to take for granted. But for adults and children who are economically challenged or homeless, even those basic garments can be difficult-if not impossible-to obtain. We will be collecting new, packaged underwear, socks and bras in sizes for all ages and genders. We would also accept baby onesies and baby socks. There will be an underwear drawer in the Narthex and we will be collecting the whole month of November!

Christmas Caroling – Mark your calendars and join us for Christmas caroling after the 10:30 am worship service on December 9.

Faithful Mothers – Will meet on the first and third Wednesdays at Lord of Life from 10 am to 11:30 am. Childcare is provided. If you would like more information please mark your Connection Cards.
