PLEASE HELP THE CHURCH LIBRARY – Christian Nurture Commission oversees the library and has cleaned out the children’s book collection. Books that were removed are on tables in fellowship hall so that the congregation can help us determine if there are any of those books that should be kept because of the donor, the topic, etc. We don’t want to get rid of any books that have value for someone and we may not know. Please use a post-it note to mark a book that should be kept and write a simple explanation why the book needs to be re-shelved. If there are books that you personally like but don’t feel it needs to be kept in the library, please take it. Any books remaining after October 20 will be put in the November 2nd sale.

8:00 AM TO 2:00 PM at Central

Breakfast will be available.
Donations of books and items (no clothing) are now being accepted and should be placed in the west classroom (children’s library) by October 30.

UNDIE SUNDAY is October 27. A last service project of Holypalooza is to collect underwear for the children at 14th and Chestnut Community Center. All sizes for girls and boys (boxers only; no briefs) are needed. You may bring items in to the church on the 27th or before. Monetary donations are accepted with checks payable to 14th and Chestnut and “Undie Sunday” in the memo line. Thank you for helping with this often overlooked need.
