December - Christmas Tea Bags
We were unable to have our annual Christmas Tea and Cookie Exchange due to COVID-19 restrictions, but we came up with a wonderful way to bring joy to each lady in our congregation - Christmas Tea Bags! The MC committee members decided to fill Christmas bags with a Christmas devotion, tea, many wonderful handmade items, and freshly baked treats. Then the bags were either picked up in person on December 13 or delivered directly to each lady's home!
The bags were as big hit and brought much Christmas joy!
October - Blessing Bags Update
First, thank you for all the wonderful donated items to help fill the Blessing Bags for those who are homeless or are experiencing ard times. It is heartwarming to see such generosity. With your gifts, we were able to prepare 108 bags total; 70 bags for our congregation pass out and to have available in the church office, and 38 bags to local organizations who often encounter those in need. We were able to include many items that are deeply needed by the homeless including food, clothing, personal care items, and the Book of John for spiritual comfort and growth.
Now it is time for action! Please pick up a bag or two to have with you or carry in your car. When you see a person who could benefit for the contents of the bag, offer a Blessing Bag to them with a smile. So many people are hurting now. This is a wonderful way to share God’s love and blessings with them. With many thanks,Your Membership Care Committee, Vision/OIT Team
