SHUT-IN CARE PACKAGES BEING ASSEMBLED THIS WEEKEND AT 11! PLEASE BRING ITEMS AND HELP US!!!
Don't forget to bring your items from the list below for our shut-in care packages this weekend! For those of you that don't know who a shut-in is, it is someone who can't get out of their house or the nursing home by themselves and it is very difficult for them to go anywhere because of physical or sometimes mental limitations. Right now there are seventeen such members of our congregation, but more get put on the list on a regular basis. Please show them you love them by bringing some of these items to church this Sunday.
Word search and crossword puzzle books
Stationery and greeting cards (all kinds), and stamps for them to write to folks
Coloring books and colors
Mints (tic tacs are especially good)
Tea bags and flavored instant coffees
If there is anything else you think they might like, please bring it!
