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.

Scout Sunday, February 7, 2016

Boy-Scouts-logoSunday, February 7th is Scout Sunday for the Boy Scouts in 2016. The Boy Scouts of America designates the Sunday that falls before February 8 (Scouting Anniversary Day) as Scout Sunday, which is the primary date to recognize the contributions of young people and adults to Scouting. We would like to invite any Cub or Boy Scout and adult leadership in our congregation to wear their uniform on Sunday in recognition of this day. In the spirit of inclusiveness, We invite all Girl Scouts and members of other "scouting" groups to join in by wearing their appropriate uniform as well. On March 6th, we'll do the same for Girl Scout Sunday.
