A SEASON OF GIVING!
The holidays are around the corner, and Messiah needs your help giving to the following ministries:
Hat, Mitten and Scarf Drive: Cold weather accessories are needed to fill our clothesline outside the sanctuary! Can you help? All donations will go to the Open Door Mission and to Wanblee, SD. We are looking for adults and youth sized items. Please bring these items to church by December 16th.
Thanksgiving Baskets: We want to support Ralston families that don’t have the money to provide a Thanksgiving meal. These meals support families at Blumfield Elementary. We ask that you provide all the fix-ins for their Thanksgiving while Messiah takes care of the turkeys. Please sign your name by the corresponding numbered bag(s) you take in the lobby so that we know how many dinners we are providing. We have attached to the bags a shopping list. The filled bags need to be back at the church no later than November 18th.
Tree of Love: This year, we will be collecting toys to take to Wanblee, SD on the Pine Ridge Reservation. More details on this will be provided shortly. They are looking for WRAPPED presents for the children there. If you are willing to donate a wrapped present, please bring that to church by Dec. 2nd, and tape an age and gender appropriate tag on the present. Thank you for your support!
