Gift tags for specific requests and further details will be available in the gathering area by early november. A $25 maximum is suggested and two or more people may go togeher on one gift. These gifts are due back Tuesday, December 3rd to the church. They don't need to be gift wrapped, but it is helpful if they are in a gift bag, along with the tag.

Ring that Bell - Salvation Army Red Kettle
Melanie is looking for volunteers to ring the bell at the Salvation Army red kept in the Super One entrance on Wednesday December 11th. There are four 2-hour shifts to fill. 9-11am ; 11am-1pm : 1-3pm : 3-5pm. Our quartet is covering the 5-7pm slot. It's always more fun if we can get two (or more) people to ring together. Please let Melanie know if you can help out!
God's Global Barnyard & Good Gifts
Like past years, in the narthex during the Advent season, there will be a tree decorated with ornaments representing different items from the ELCA Good Gifts, such as gifts of chicks, piglet, goats, honeybees, fruit tree seedlings, and many more items. These gifts grow the church, fight hunger and transform lives. For those wishing to give barnyard animals and/or Good Gifts as gists for the holidays, you must include this form with your donation so that proper tracking of all Good Gifts purchased by the congregation can be done. Just drop it in with your offering.
