Goodwill Clothing Drive is Coming Soon

With the changing weather, our annual Goodwill Clothing Drive is rapidly approaching. As you sort out clothing no longer needed, consider turning them into cash for someone in need.
For every bag of clothing collected and donated to Goodwill Industries, we receive money vouchers that we then distribute to local charities. Recipients of the vouchers can then use them just like cash to purchase clothing at Goodwill.
The main collection day will be in early June, but if you need to, you can bring your bags to the upper room of the Fellowship Hall before then. Be sure to label them "Goodwill." Please use the white 13 gallon kitchen bags, or something similar, which are easier for both you and us to carry. This is a clothing drive; no shoes, belts, hangers, or household items are accepted.

Welcome Reception for Dr. Elizabeth Carrier-Ladd

Our sabbatical minister, Dr. Elizabeth, will be here this weekend and will officiate at her first service for us on Sunday, January 8.  All members and friends of the congregation are invited to stay after the service to attend a welcome reception for Rev. Elizabeth and her family.  The reception will be in the Fellowship Hall immediately after the service (so during the normal "coffee hour").  All are welcome.

Information on Dr. Elizabeth and how the sabbatical will be done is in the brochure passed out in service and distributed electronically in recent weeks. Copies of the brochure are available in the church narthex.
