Donations we are looking for again are: granola bars, small bags of chips, candy, juice mixes/boxes, etc. Also, this year we will be mailing bags to students upon request who may be attending college outside of Marshall.  We have a list of recent graduates/students but if you have anyone in mind, please provide their contact information to a member of the Evangelism Committee. The deadline for donations will be Sunday, December 3rd as bags will be delivered/mailed the week of the 4th. A box has been placed in the Narthex. Please call Jason Manthei with questions. Thank you!

THANKSGIVING BOARD-What are you thankful for? Our Sunday School bulletin board is changing to let everyone know what the kids are thankful for during this blessed season. They are working on a project displaying what they thank God for. Please feel free to write on the board and let everyone know what you are thankful for this season.

 

We are still in need of a volunteer group to sign up for the Advent meal on Wednesday, December 20th. If you are able to help, please sign-up on the “Get Connected” board. Thanks to LWML for serving barbecues on 12/6 and the BOE for serving soup on 12/13.
