Legacy Campaign Update

The Legacy Team reminds all that it is not too late to make a pledge to the Legacy Capital Campaign. Cards are available in the back of the sanctuary or the church office or may be obtained by speaking with MaryAnne Bayer, Ray Conley, Bill Eidson, Larry Fouch, James Martin, Molly Flodder, Dan Lemen, or Joe Songer. Even if the first “payment” has to be in 2018, we encourage you to get a card and turn it in now. Already 90% of the goal has been pledged. It would be nice, however, to have a more detailed picture of what gifts will come in between now and the late-2019 culmination.

“Our 88-year-old building is our gift to future generations and our community. We must be good stewards of keeping it in a state of restoration and good repair,” said MaryAnne Bayer, Legacy Team Chair.

Pillow Case Project

Thank you all for your assistance with the pillowcase project: the pillow purchasers, the sewers, the coaches, the notice writers, and the prayers. This year we will have about 60 pillowcases to deliver to the following charities: Christian Ministries Men’s sleeping room, Kid’s Peace (foster children), Longfellow Kindergarten, and YWCA blanket cupboard. Deliveries will be made in early December. We plan to continue this project in 2018. All are welcome to come to sew and iron. This year adults sewed on the last Thursday of the month from 2:00–4:00. Dana got donations of six boxes of fabric that have helped much with this project.

The Friendship Class is for special-needs adults. Volunteers are needed to help with the classes. If you have questions about the class or would like to volunteer, call Jane Patton.
