At ARUMC This Week -
The annual Festival of Thanks dinner will be November 15 at 6:30 pm. We need side dishes and desserts to share. Invite your friends and neighbors. If you can also provide a turkey for the dinner, let Janie Guess know by email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 864-908-0453.
Please visit the sign-up table in the narthex where you can volunteer to help with the shopping (December 9) and home repair Christmas missions (December 16 and 17) and the feeding of those participating. Sponsors for the shopping at $40 per child are also needed. See Steve Varda.
Please consider donating for the purchase of new Christmas trees. You can mark your check “trees” and put it in the collection plate. Goal is $1300. Questions to Beth Patterson. And, thinking Christmas, as your group plans holiday events or discovers them at local churches, please share them with Connections in time for the Advent activity list. Thanks!
