ANGEL TREE GIVING FOR CHRISTMAS  If you haven’t done so, please stop by our table this morning, in fellowship hall, for an Angel Tree tag. Our “angels” are: 1) adults with intellectual disabilities served by Starkey, a nonprofit agency that enables clients to live and work in the community, and 2) Gammon students and family members who are identified by Gammon teachers as those striving to overcome serious economic hardships. Your gifts should be wrapped, placed in a clear plastic bag with the original tag, and returned to fellowship hall no later than Sunday, December 8.

If you have already claimed a Gammon tag, we have become aware that several wish list items are more expensive in nature. Please gift only what you consider practical and affordable. Whatever you can give will be gratefully received.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED at Gammon Elementary on Thursday, Nov. 21 for 3 ½ hours in the morning or afternoon to help the Physical Ed teachers with a Body Venture creative interactive exhibit. The students will learn how the different parts of the body function and the part that good nutrition, not smoking, and exercise plays in keeping the body healthy. Sign up on the PIC board or contact Cyndi Richter at for details.

HOMELESS MEAL – On December 3rd, our next First Tuesday, we will plan for 100 meals unless notified otherwise. Our menu is the following:  Grace Kneil’s Spaghetti Bake, Debbie Green’s green beans, baguettes (sliced and buttered), and brownies…yes, brownies again. This time we’d like to include more than chocolate so, go wild!  Contact Kathe Thompson for specifics:

Thanks to those who contributed food to the November 5th First Tuesday Homeless Meal, to Grace Kneil for creating the meal, to those who served that evening and to all who offered to help. We served about 50 men and women at the Winter Overflow Shelter and at The Villas across the street that night. (Leftovers are never wasted!)

IT’S POINSETTIA TIME! If you would like to contribute to the Christmas floral display, please send a check for $15.00 to the church, payable to UCC by November 20, or you may put it in the offering plate. Be sure to write flowers on the memo line and indicate if your donation is in honor of, or in memory of someone special.
