  •  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.

Crafts for a Cause

Find something for everyone on your list at the Crafts for a Cause Holiday Bazaar, going on every Sunday from 9:30 to noon in the Fellowship Building, through Dec. 16. The inventory changes every week, with tasty food, baby gifts and toys, pet treats, Christmas goodies and a new gifts for men section. You can’t find ANY of these things on Amazon, and all proceeds go to the Crafts ministry for the next year. We accept cash, checks and credit cards.

If you’re interested in exploring the Crafts group, we have two work sessions coming up when volunteers make comfort items for hospitals and shelters – Mon., Dec. 3, and Mon., Dec. 17, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124. We also have homework, and a Loom Hat project. For more information, contact Molly Sprouse.
