THE MITTEN TREE
Thank you to everyone who donated items for
our Mitten Tree. Linda Avallone was able to deliver
14 pairs of children and 22 pairs of adult gloves and
mittens to Family Service League because of your
generosity!
2015 OFFERING ENVELOPES
 The 2015 Offering Envelopes are now available on
the table in the hallway. If you don’t see a set and
would like one, please call the church office. If you
give electronically, you don’t need a set, as it ers self-improvement programs and United Methodist Voluntary Services community advocacy projects. Your gifts on Human Relations Day will support an outreach program of Theressa Hoover United Methodist Church in Little Rock, Ark. The church sponsors a residential and out-patient program for men and women with addictions. Graduates of the program participate in an eight-week course that provides training for unemployed or underemployed people. The offering also supports Exodus House, a ministry in Oklahoma that helps former prisoners to receive the emotional, spiritual and physical support they need to make it on their own. Please give generously on Human Relations Day. Thank you!

SOUPER BOWL OF CARING

Sunday, February 1st is our annual Souper Bowl of Caring.  Every year on Super Bowl Sunday, our MYF collect cans of soup and monetary donations after service that they then donate to our local food pantries – check out Souper Bowl of Caring online (souperbowl.org) to learn more about this program.  At the end of service they’ll be holding big soup pots where you can place your donations – cans and monetary!  Let’s help them serve our neighbors!
