Dear Families,

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week! There is LOTS happening, so please read to make sure you don’t miss anything! (Probably no e-news next week as I hope to be taking some time off!) 

**NEW: We are again partnering with Faith Action International to sponsor 75 refugee and immigrant children from low income households this Christmas. If you would like to help, please use THIS GOOGLE SHEET to add your name in the highlighted column by the child you would like to sponsor. You are asked to purchase one age appropriate toy in each of the three categories listed and deliver the three toys wrapped & labeled with the child’s FULL NAME to FPC by the morning of December 4. If you have questions, please let me know. I have also attached to this email a list of suggested toy items in each of the categories in case you need ideas! 


This Sunday

Sunday School at 10am followed by ONE WORSHIP SERVICE at 11am in the Sanctuary (no Rejoice this week!).
Parents – Sunday School in the Garden Room! Final in the series about managing stress during the holidays!

Then, join us in the Life Center for a potluck lunch! BBQ and chicken tenders provided. Bring a side dish or dessert to share. You can drop your item off in the Life Center before you head to Sunday School or Worship!

REMINDER: If you signed up to help provide items for the gingerbread church, please bring your items on Sunday! (or this week!)
