Food Pantry Needs

The All Saints Food Pantry has been very busy so far in 2018. Our computer that we have been using to keep all our client information for us, River Bend Food Bank, and Churches United is on its last leg. If anyone has a computer that they would be willing to donate we could really use it. Microsoft Excel is the program we use.

One of our upright freezers has stopped working. We are in need of an upright or chest freezer.

Families are so appreciative of laundry detergent, bars of soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine products, toilet paper and paper towels.

Winter coats.

Blessings,
Bonnie

ELCA Good Gift Angel Tree

This Service Ministry Team decided to do ELCA Good Gift angel tags on the angel tree. This Sunday will be the last Sunday to participate. Please consider picking an angel, placing the amount in the envelope and then the envelope in the offering plate. These gifts will truly be life changing for the families receiving them.

Hat and Mitten Tree

Please consider purchasing hats, gloves, mittens, and scarves for those that are in need and place them in the gathering space on the tree.

Poinsettias

Thank you to all that have purchased a poinsettia in memory of a loved one.  If you have not paid for the poinsettia yet, please place your payment in the offering plate (marked clearly).  Thank you!

You may take your plant home at the end of the Christmas season.

Check out the “Many Hands Make Light Work!” side of the kiosk in the gathering space to sign-up for various volunteer opportunities. The 2018, 1st Quarter, sheets will be out soon.
