 With another Thrivent Box Action Grant for $250, we would like to assist Family Promise with some of their in-house needs.  If you would like to help, there is a need for 2018 large calendars and/or planners.   (These will be used with the families to maintain their daily schedules so they need to have room on which to write.)  Also needed are new socks for children and/or adults.  (Basic white and not expensive.)   With the grant money, we will purchase some flash drives and new underwear.   If possible, please bring all donations in by Sunday, February 4th.    Family Promise is so appreciative of our generous offer to help as some of their basic everyday needs take a toll on their budget.   Please  note we will be hosting Promise the week of April 22-29.   John and Coralee

  “Two for One” at Hope:   Please remove the tabs from any aluminum cans donated and put tabs in the container for Ronald McDonald House.   Please only bring aluminum cans (no foil or other aluminum) and the pop tabs from the cans.

Anyone wishing to help out with donations to defer the 24 to Double module cost of $99.00 per month, please see Pastor Pat.  Six months have been purchased to date.
