MISSION COMMITTEE PROJECTS:

You are invited to join the Mission Committee in collecting pink or blue plastic caps from Prairie Farms milk (gallons and half-gallons).  Leave the white stickers on.  These will be given to Habitat for Humanity, which receves cash donations for the caps.  A container is on the table in the narthex for your bottle caps.  Thanks for your help.

It's time to begin thinking about Christmas Shoeboxes!!  Please consider sharing the love of Jesus with a poor child by filling a shoebox with toys, books, crayons, puzzles and hygiene items.  There is a more detailed list of items to include with the boxes. 
Shoeboxes will be available soon and need to be returned by November 17th.

If you would like to help with the Mission, please bring a gently used purse and/or new, unopened TRAVEL SIZE personal items to the church and place them on the Mission table in the narthex.  Thanks.
