Service Project Opportunity/Needs

In addition, we need sizes 2T, 3T, and 4T winter outfits for boys, especially pants. We are also running low on 4T winter outfits for girls.
Clothes of Compassion
The committee for Clothes for Compassion would like to “Thank” everyone who donated clothes. The response has been wonderful. They have received so much clothes they are running out of space. Until further notice, they are asking for only clothes that will fit children in 4 kindergarten through High School.
Mercy Mat Update
We meet Wednesday mornings from September through May at Our Savior's from 9-12. You don't need any experience to join the group, just a pair of scissors and a willingness to learn the steps in making the mats. Please join us if you have the time and interest. If you can't join us please donate clean, used plastic grocery bags to our effort and keep us in your prayers. There is always a need for the mats.

A BIG THANK YOU to our Sunday School children and their families who, during the November, donated items to the food pantry each week. A total of more than 65# of food and paper products were donated. They learned about giving to others in our community who need a little help. They are role models for all of us.
