November 2019 Update

Diapers… Diapers… Diapers!

I hope you have seen the insert in the Sunday bulletins about our diaper collection to benefit the Foster/Adoption Parent Clothing Bank. We are collecting diapers through the end of November.


The “Diaper Depot” to leave the diapers is in the overflow seating area of the sanctuary, closest to the fellowship area doors. Jane (Comstock) VanDeventer is the coordinator of the Clothing Bank and will welcome our donations. I have not purchased diapers for a very long time and had no idea how expensive they are!


Many foster parents receive babies/toddlers with little or no clothing or other supplies coming with them. This Clothing Bank offers parents the opportunity to get new/gently used items for their little ones! Clothing is also carried for older children and teens as well.


Jane will be the speaker at our November meeting and tell us more about her work as a foster parent and the Clothing Bank. So don't forget to put Wednesday, November 13th at 12 noon on your calendar for this meeting!

Christmas Brunch: Saturday, December 14th at 10:30 am

Our annual Christmas Brunch is fast approaching and  we will start selling tickets on Sunday, November 10th after church in the Church Library. Tickets are $12 each.


Our program includes Christmas music sung by Sandi Swarthout, an outstanding soloist and member

of our church choir. Rev. Carol Sutton, former national Executive Director of American Baptist Women’s Ministries, will bring the devotional thought. And there will be a couple other little “surprises” as well. Tickets go quickly, so buy yours early!

As we enter the season of Thanksgiving, I am grateful for the strong support of the women in our church who show up week after week and take care of all the little details that no one particularly notices, but would miss if they weren’t there. 


As always, thank you all for your support and giving. You are a blessing to so many people!
