Outreach Ministries

Neighborhood Supper will be held Friday, January 17th, at 5:15 p.m.   You are, also, encouraged to come in early to fellowship with the participants.  This month’s meal will be spaghetti w/meat sauce, corn, pineapple chunks, bread & butter, cookies, and beverages. The following items are needed:  spaghetti sauce, canned corn, canned pineapple chunks or tidbits, grated cheese, punch or punch mix, coffee, napkins, styrofoam 10 oz. cups, dinner plates, and small bowls.  Please bring your donations to the church kitchen by January 15th.

 

Community Breakfast will be every fourth Saturday of each month. Our first breakfast for 2020 will be held on Saturday, January 25th, from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m.  This community outreach is sponsored by the Men’s Prayer Breakfast group and the UMW’s SKI group.  This is a   free breakfast and open to all (donations will be accepted).  This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved and reach out to our community  and build relationships with our neighbors.  Come support or just have breakfast and fellowship. If you have questions, talk to anyone from    the Men’s Prayer group or SKI group.  Hope to see you there.

Collecting magazines for our troops. We will be collecting one month old men’s magazines of all kinds that are appropriate to send to our troops.  A basket is in the library to put your magazines in. We will be sending them in small amounts to troops in different locations abroad.  Please contact Lynne Baer with any questions.  If you would like to purchase a magazine subscription or you have a subscription you no longer want to receive, you can have the subscription sent directly to: Magazines for Troops, PO Box 909, Lakeside, MT 59922

 

Would any group or individual like to help cover the cost of shipping the magazines for the troops?  It is a flat rate box, so the cost is $14.95 to ship.  Boxes and labels are in the library.  All that is needed is to tape the label to the boxes once they are packed.

 

If you are making or needing a Prayer Shawl for someone, they are now in a tub in the Upper Room.
