Odds and Ends for Dec 15, 2021

Christmas stockings

Every Christmas Peggy and her volunteers make Christmas stockings (bags) for those who are served the Wednesday night dinner. Although the dinner has had to be a takeout because of Covid they would still like to be able to hand out the traditional stockings.

Men’s and women’s gloves and mitts are still needed to make the stockings complete. I know that they will be gladly received and greatly appreciated. So, if you are able to donate some mitts or gloves, please bring them to church this Sunday or drop them off before Sunday. If you call the office at 705-472-6070 Dawn will come down and let you in.

Christmas Cookies

We have a team of cookie couriers who are looking for cookies to deliver to some of our fellow parishioners who are unable to get to church. We would like them to know that they are still in our thoughts and in our prayers and a great way to show them is to deliver some cookies to them. So, when you are doing your Christmas baking, please remember to make a little extra. We are going to be packing them up and delivering them this Sunday and it would be great if you could either bring them to church on Sunday or drop them off at the church before Sunday. Dawn is at the church Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 9 and 3 and if you call her, she will come to the door to collect your cookie contribution.

Food Shelf

Lynda Hughes and her volunteers have let me know that while there is always a need for the much appreciated donations to the Food Shelf, this week there is a special need for powdered milk, tea and canned meat or fish. As usual, Irv has scanned the flyers looking for any grocery stores that have them on special.
