School Partnership Team Forming
We are currently forming a school partnership team that will guide and coordinate this exciting new ministry. If you are interested, please sign up in the Fellowship Hall or contact Pastor Glenn.
Support our Troops
Have you ever wondered how you can show your support for our troops? The Nutty Knitters will be collecting supplies for Support the Troops WI , an organization celebrating 10 years of sending over 9300 care packages to soldiers stationed overseas. Here’s how YOU can help; we will be collecting note cards, puzzle books, canned hearty soups and stews (MUST be pop tops), travel size toiletries, microwave popcorn, powdered drink mixes, tea and hot chocolate. Place your items in the donation box located downstairs. We have been told the soldiers especially love to receive cards and notes. Please take a minute to write a few words in a card that we can include with the care packages. For more information on this organization, as well as other items that can be donated, please check their website at http:// www.supportthetroopswi.com. Thank you!
