OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD:  Operation Christmas Child is underway and we need everyone’s support to once again make this a success.  Please remember to pick up a box to fill or bring in items and we will fill the shoe boxes for you.  OCC has made some changes.  They can no longer accept toothpaste or candy of any kind due to customs regulations.  Also, the cost to ship the boxes has increased to $9.00, so if you choose to make a monetary donation, it will be greatly appreciated.  I ask that ALL donations and filled shoe boxes be returned to St. Paul by Sunday, November 12 – the start of National Collection Week.  See Deborah Bartlett, Judy Dodge, or Debbie Groves with any questions.

2017 FLOWERS AND MEDITATION CANDLES:  Weeks are still available for purchase, dedicated to your special intentions. The meditation candle is $5.00 and flowers are $30.00 for two vases. Please use an Order Envelope and PREPAY your order at the time that you sign the flower and candle chart. PAYMENT ENVELOPES ARE BY THE FLOWER CHART. On weeks where there is no paid order, the church will display silk flowers to the Glory of God.  Please sign up for your special weeks while they are available.

SPLASH TODAY:  Donations are always warmly welcomed, and with your continued support, we will be able to sustain this valuable ministry to young families.

GRIEF MINISTRY:  Part of the Social Committee is Grief Ministry. Joyce Osborn is spearheading this ministry with Pr. Winters’ and God’s guidance and help.  When a loved one dies, Joyce sends a set of four books called “Journeying through Grief” throughout the first year. Each book describes the issues and feelings that a person tends to encounter at various points of grief and the books offer suggestions on handling them.  If Pastor Winters or Joyce can be of any help or if you have any questions during a time of grief, please contact either of them.

DUE TO GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS:  In the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), churches and clergy can no longer make written or oral public announcements of health information regarding our members.  Thus, unless specifically requested by a member to share other information, we are only able to indicate where a person is hospitalized or that they have been discharged.
