Joyce Keller, Celebration of Her Life
Our pantry was seriously depleted at this month’s pantry giveaway. We gave away more boxes than ever. We also had to turn away some folks. The items we need are listed here to encourage you to get those items to the building as soon as possible. It would be good for all items to be at the building by December 6. Our giveaway is December 12. We will pick up the food bank items on December 8. Having the items by the 6th makes it easier to know how to fill the boxes so that we give a good box of food. It is a balance between giving out as much food as possible and our ability to donate food. I do hope you will all be able to help and participate in this great ministry.
cereal – 2 boxes; fruit – 3 cans; gravy – 3 jars; canned meat – 2 cans; pasta – 1 box; pasta sauce – 3 jars or cans; peanut butter – 3 jars; pork & beans – 3 cans; potatoes – 3 boxes; rice – 3 boxes; rice – 3 bags; soup – 3 cans; tuna – 2 cans.
I hope you all are doing well. Don’t forget we are now doing Bible classes on Sunday morning at 9:30 AM. We have a class for the adults and one for the kids. It’s good that we have our Sunday morning and Wednesday night somewhat back to normal. Hopefully we’ll add more soon.
Gene Newton continues his new series of lessons on “The Go Statement of Jesus” with “Go and Show Compassion.” He started his lessons over for our in person classes, but he will continue posting new lessons each week on our website.
Please wear a mask at our Sunday service and Wednesday service. We will continue to do our best to make our building environment safe. Gene has made a little more space in our pews so that we can handle more people without having to bring chairs in the back. If you can, please try to sit as close up front as you can. Also please stay in the same seat you used for Bible class when worship time comes. This helps us keep everyone safe.
I know some of you may not yet feel safe to come to our Sunday service or our Wednesday service but I pray that the Lord will always continue to be with you. I do look forward to everyone coming back again. Don’t forget when you arrive on Sunday morning that communion cups will be at the back of the auditorium for you to pick up on your way in. Also there will be a contribution plate for you to drop your contribution in. Gene and I will still be posting our Sunday lessons for all of you to view.

Our Food Pantry Giveaway went well on Saturday. We gave away 80 boxes. The last couple of boxes were lean but we still helped 80 households. I pray that God will continue to bless us so that we can bless others in our community. Don’t forget to check our website, bulletin board in the foyer, and our bulletin for what items we need next month. Our next giveaway will be December 12. Keep praying for our congregation, our community, our county, our state, and our country. Let your light shine during this time when you have the opportunity.
