The Christmas tree in the Fellowship Hall
now has some candy striped tree shaped cards on it. On the back of each red and
white card is the holiday wish list of a needy area child.
People are welcome to take a card, do a little shopping and bring the gifts, unwrapped, in a bag with the tree card attached by Sunday December 18th or sooner if possible.
The gifts will be distributed with Holiday Food Baskets by Black River Good Neighbors on the 22nd. An area family will have a merrier Christmas while appreciating your generosity.
SOUPFEST 2017- January 8, 2017
In the Social Room immediately following our Church Service
This is the event you have been waiting for.
We have decided to move Soupfest to the Church so that we do not have to limit
the number of people invited. As in the past, we will supply salad and bread.
Please bring a soup to enter into the contest for Soup of the Year. You are all the judges.
The contest and prizes will be the same. Please let Lisha know what you are bringing
as this is SoupFest and hopefully we will get lots of soups.

2016 Christmas Fund for Veterans of the Cross
and the Emergency Fund
In this holy and joyous time of year, our thoughts turn to the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, the light of the world.
The theme for the 2016 Christmas Fund Offering is
God’s Love Colors Everything
For 115 years, the Christmas Fund for the Veterans of the Cross and the Emergency Fund has been a way in which we, as members of the United Church of Christ and the predecessor denominations, reflect the love of Jesus Christ in the lives of the many women and men who have so faithfully and selflessly served, and who now find themselves facing unforeseen financial crises.
See further for more information on the Christmas Fund and Emergency Fund. The offering will be dedicated on Sunday, December 18.
