The Christmas Party is coming in just a few weeks! Let’s work
together to make it a wonderful event and promote AWANA to our
Sunday, Dec. 17 at 9am – final decor, set up and party prep
Wednesday, Dec. 20 from 6pm-8pm – PARTY TIME!
(If you can help out that night, please plan on meeting around 5pm.)

This year we are planning again to give gift cards to those in need.
If you would like to make a contribution to this cause please so
designate it on your check or envelope.

If the past is any indicator, we can expect a big crowd for the
Christmas Party. If you can help, there is a sign up sheet in the
vestibule with a list of food items that are needed for the party.

A lady we met the other day use to live on Telegraph Road and said
she grew up in this church. (Before my time.) She is now collecting
blankets to hand out to the homeless. If you have some blankets you
no longer use and would like to donate them to the cause, please drop
them off at the church and I will see that she gets them. Size, age
or condition does not matter.

A group is planning to go Christmas Caroling Sunday, Dec 24. We will
meet at the church and plan to leave for our first stop by 3pm. If
you plan to come with us or if you would like us to visit someone,
please let Tom know by Dec 23 so plans can be made. Thanks!

Thank you for your interest in helping those in Dominica. Dr. Agard
is the founder of Hands International who is heading up this project
there. A local contact is Andrea (from Shiloh church) who works with
Dr. Agard. She and Dr. Agard are a part of the Delaware Medical Response
Team who travels to Dominica. There they distribute the items collected
that were put into shipping cargo containers and sent down. This is a
long term project. Items can be dropped off at the church or if you have
a large donation, please contact Joanna or Yvonne. We can make alternate
arrangements to get it to the local shipping container that is getting
packed and readied for the next shipment.
