The cash value of our Thanksgiving Ingathering for this year is $8799 plus toothpaste costs and shipping costs of $1381. Money is still needed for shipping and toothpaste costs.

To my church friends: Thank you to Pastor Lane for his visit and calls. Also, to all who gave food and support in anyway after the loss of my husband, Rich? God Bless, Margaret Edwards

NEXT WEEKEND IS FOOD DONATION The second weekend of the month is food donation weekend.

THANKSGIVING BASKETS For those of you wishing to contribute money towards the Thanksgiving Baskets, please indicate this on your Love Offering envelope. UNICEF This past Saturday 20 young disciples and 7 adults in 6 groups gathered for fun and service as they went around the community neighborhoods collecting money for UNICEF (United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund). Fun was had by all and a great feeling of satisfaction was gain in knowing the funds raised will benefit those in need. We thank all who contributed. $444.14 was gathered just short of our goal of $500, enough to buys a water pump for a whole community. Though we did rise over $257, which provides an emergency classroom kits for 40 kids. Great Job! If you did receive a visit from one of the church youth collecting last Sunday and would like to contribute make a check UNICEF or a pew (Love) envelope the same.

HARVEST DINNER Friday, November 19th – 6:00-8:00p at FUMC for ham ball dinner with all of the trimmings for a good will offering. Proceeds go to Montgomery Street Preschool and Fellowship Uniting Neighbors. (Colossians 3:15-3:17) “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whenever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

We are in need of a coordinator for our Thanksgiving mission baskets. This person will work with SHARE and Helping Hands to help us distribute approximately 20+ baskets for families in need during the Thanksgiving season. Persons interested are to please contact the office.
