THE FLOWERS ON THE COMMUNION TABLE TODAY are given by Pat Snyder in remembrance of all our loved ones who are no longer with us.

candle.

COLLECTING WINTER COATS FOR GAMMON STUDENTS – With the arrival of cold weather, we have learned that some Gammon students from low-income families are coming to school without heavier coats, making bus waits and playground time especially difficult.  If you have gently-used children’s coats, sizes 5 – 12, in your family that are no longer being used, please consider donating them for a Gammon student.  You may bring coats to the designated area in Fellowship Hall during the next few Sundays.  Of course, new coats will also be welcomed! 

HONDURAN EMBOSSED CARDS on sale Sunday, November 10, in fellowship hall after worship. The proceeds benefit the Hygiene Pantry and help to pay for the coloring books that Barbara McKee takes to Honduras each year.
