Fall Church Cleanup will take place this Saturday, November 10 at 9:00 am weather permitting. It is time to get the church yard looking spiffy for the holidays and get those storm windows on. Please think about stopping by and helping for however long you have available. If we have enough people it won’t take long. As they say, “Many hands make light work!” If you have any questions, please contact Gary Davis at 829-6266.
Christmas Fair News
The Christmas Fair folks are looking for gently used jewelry for the jewelry table. If you have some jewelry that you no longer wear would you consider donating it to the Women’s Fellowship/Tuesday Gals for the fair?! You can give it to a Tuesday Gal or bring it into the office and Lyn will make sure that they get it. Thank you!
Pet Place Pantry/Christmas Fair
The Pet Place Pantry, sponsored by the Missions Committee, will have a table at the church fair where it will sell vintage and antique items donated to the Pet Place Pantry as different from “Trash and Treasures.” All proceeds from the sale will go directly to the Pet Place Pantry. We are looking for a variety of vintage or antique items, not just glass or china. All we ask is that the item be in good usable condition, and with glass or china, no chips or cracks. Vintage or antique jewelry can also be donated, just let us know that it goes on the Pet Place Pantry table and not the jewelry table. Nice linens, silver or anything else antique or vintage that you would like to donate are most welcome. The items can be brought to church. If they are brought to church, please put a note with them that they are for the Pet Place Pantry so Lyn can call Dale to come and get them. Thank you for your support of the Pet Place Pantry.
Do you have a craft where you create an item that might draw some nice bids at the Fair’s Silent Auction? Pat Field’s wooden crèche figures come to mind. Do you own/work at a business that might donate a Gift Card? Please think of a good donation that would draw interest (and bids) to the Silent Auction tables at the Christmas Fair. Many of our regulars enjoy bidding on new, fresh items and gift cards; sometimes a bidding war even breaks out!
Women’s Fellowship/Tuesday Gals and their Elf friends will be taking over the Fellowship Hall Wednesday, November 14 -17 to prepare and host the Christmas Fair.
In addition, the youth group will be partnering with the Cumberland Congregational Church’s youth group in December to create small care packages to be distributed during the holiday season. We are asking church members to help contribute items needed for the packages and will have collections baskets at church. We will be collecting:
New socks – men’s, women’s, and youth
Small toys/stuffed animals
Women’s hygiene products
Granola bars, etc.

Please consider hosting this wonderful time together for one week or more in the coming year. It is up to you what you bring to share. You may put on a pot of coffee or use the single serve machine (especially nice now that we have reusable coffee pods😇) There will be a sign up sheet in the Gathering Space. Thank you, Pastor Nancy
