HOLIDAY STROLL – SATURDAY, NOV. 19
The Missions Team is looking for groups from Peterborough UMC to take part in this year’s in-person Holiday Stroll on Saturday, Nov. 19. Ways our church has contributed in the past include: bake sale, holiday greens, Christmas crafts, Youth/Sunday School fundraiser, Fair Trade goods and a holiday lunch.
Be on the lookout for a sign-up poster in the Fellowship Hall and please sign up for whatever volunteer areas you would like to assist with. In addition to creating/donating items for the big event, we will also need volunteers to help set up, take down and work at various tables and areas during the event.
THANK YOU to all who have already shown an interest. More information will be provided as we get further along in the planning process. Feel free to contact Justine Gaskamp with any questions.
FELLOWSHIP TREATS SIGN-UP
A new sign-up sheet is now located near the entry into the sanctuary for folks to volunteer to bring a little something to nibble on during Fellowship time after service. Please consider signing up for a date that works best for you and bring a light snack to go with coffee. Thank you!
BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING!
We had some leftover funds from the backpack donations this year, and were able to purchase ten $25 gift cards from Target and Walmart to give to families from both the MATS and Shelter from the Storm programs. THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to this vital project that supports our youngest community members.
WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY
Everyone is invited to contribute to the newsletter! Send in your photos, thank yous, birthdays, events, testimonials, poems, letters, printable artwork, prayer submissions…
