Advent and Christmas Planning in Progress

Advent Season – Amanda Simmons will coordinate a children’s Christmas program. She will be invited to the November N.O.W. meeting to discuss her preliminary plans & needs for a program.

Congregation members may choose a tag and bring gifts to the church to be given to Chaddock children.  Discussion and further planning for the Advent and Christmas season will be done at the November meeting. Sacks for Thanksgiving food donations were distributed on Sunday, October 27 and will need to be returned by November 10.

Tuesday Women to Make Plastic Sleeping Mats for the Homeless

Each Tuesday in November, 1:00-4:00 P.M.

Fifteen women of the community, five from our Methodist Church, met for the first session on Tuesday, October 22, at the Waverly Methodist Church to fold, cut, and crochet plastic sacks into sleeping mats for “Helping the Homeless in Springfield”.
