Sock Swapping, Giving Tree & Upcoming Events

A whole lot of fun was had at our recent Women’s Sock-ing Stuffer Swap. Say that 3 times real fast! This was the first time we have had this event and the consensus was …it was a sock-cess!

We had 29 ladies swap stuffed socks, fellowship, eat lots of goodies while sipping some hot chocolate, apple cider around the roaring fire and Christmas Tree . There were Star War Socks, Rudolph Socks, Present Socks, Hot Pink Socks, a wide array of fun Christmas theme socks to swap. We might have even “stolen” a few socks away from others a time or two (or more). Of course it was all in good fun! We will be adding this to our list of annual events so if you didn’t get a chance to come this year, make sure you come next year and get your socks on!

The Care Ministry would like to thank Harvest Members for your compassion and generosity for donating all the presents from the tags on The Giving Tree. We provided gifts to 9 local families that were nominated by our church body. Each family member received one “need” present and two “wants”. Jackets, socks, slippers, blankets, legos, arts and craft supplies, baby dolls, etc for the kids…. grocery gift cards, gas cards, etc for the parents. We delivered all the gifts to the families this past Sunday. All of the families were very appreciative and grateful for all the love and support.

And finally, our next big event is the Annual All Church Chili Cook Off! This is always one of the biggest events of the year. Keep an eye out for more details in the coming weeks. And get your favorite recipe ready!

Hope to see you and your family at the Christmas Eve service starting at 6:00pm or the Sunday Christmas Day service starting at 11am.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
