  •  Vegetable Oil-48 oz
  •  Canned Fruit
  •  Canned Corn
  •  Pasta sauce- can or plastic
  •  1-2 lb bags Rice
  •  Canned black beans
  •  Canned chick peas
  •  Feminine Hygiene
  •  Diapers and Wipes

Please place donations in the bins outside the Sanctuary and in the Fellowship Building.

Collecting Christmas Cards: Naty de las Alas is collecting new or gently used Christmas cards (religious theme preferred) that will be distributed to the homeless. Look for the collection boxes in the Narthex and in the Fellowship Building. Thank you!

Crafts for a Cause

Christmas stockings, fleece blankets, soft hats and neck pillows are piling up in the Crafts room, thanks to the recent efforts of volunteers to make comfort items for Fair Oaks Hospital patients. You can be a part of this rewarding ministry by joining one of these upcoming work sessions on Monday nights from 7 to 8:30 in Room 124: Nov. 19, Dec. 3 and Dec. 17.

Crafts also has an ongoing Loom Hat Project to provide warm hats for Christ House residents and newborn babies at Fair Oaks. This is an easy task that only requires a loom and thick yarn. If you would like to try your hand at making a loomed hat, contact Molly Sprouse at mollysprouse@gmail.com, or check out the displays in the back of the Sanctuary and the Fellowship Building and at http://bit.ly/tumccrafts.

Also, please mark your calendars for our annual Holiday Food and Crafts Bazaar starting Sun., Nov. 18. This is how we raise the funds to run next year’s crafts ministry, so we count on your support.
