NOTICES AND DATES:
Our annual Stewardship season (October 6-November 3) continues this week which will include a Pledge Drive for the 2020 budget. Envelopes and Pledge Cards are available to place in the offering plate. Other Stewardship opportunities will be available during our annual planning meeting on November 1-2 when you can be involved in the planning of our ministry activities for 2020.
Day Timers: Our next meeting is Tuesday, October 29 which will include a special topic of interest: the plight of the South African Rhinoceros. Mr. Matt Bracken will enlighten us on this ecological and humanitarian issue. The rhinos have been exploited and are near extinction. Please join us to learn how you may help save our creatures both great and small. Bring your sandwich of choice and we will have beverages for you.
Please RSVP by October 24 to Luella Brazier, 412- 922-9702 or Linda Polaski, 412-921-8605. Due to the increased participation at the local Food Bank, DayTimers ask that you bring a non-perishable item to donate.
DayTimers meet the last Tuesday of the month from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
Our local Food Bank is asking for food such as cranberries, stuffing mix, pumpkin, packaged side dishes, cream soups, pudding and dessert mixes. These items will be in demand for the Fall and Thanksgiving holiday. Snacks, fruit rolls and crackers are also good for Back to School time. Thank you for your continued support of our local community.
Coming Soon: Trunk or Treat, Saturday, October 26th, 11 am-1 pm. There will be activities and treats for all ages, including Nintendo for older youth. Can you help or decorate your car trunk? Contact Luanne Jones.
