The Come To Me Food Pantry raised $15,870 from the recent Meijer Simply Give Campaign. In the three weeks we were open in November, we served 11,186 people from 226 families with almost 20,000 lbs. of food. Donations brought to the altar on November 24th totaled 4,692.4 lbs.  And each month this fall, we gave away at least one Bible and had a special request for a large print version.  Thank you for the donations, prayers and continued support!

Christmas Card Exchange
The Pathfinders Sunday School Class will once again host the Christmas Card exchange in Connection Central.  Instead of mailing cards to members of the church, place cards in the collection baskets, and they will be sorted into the appropriate folder.  Don't forget to check your folder to see if there are any cards. Money saved on postage can be donated to Pathfinders for their mission projects or your charity of choice.
