Love Lights

The Outreach Commission is sponsoring the Love Lights program, with funds received going to the Food Bank of Central New York. Please use the special envelopes found in the pews for your donations. The need is even greater this year as people in the NYC area recover from hurricane Sandy. Please give generously so we can help feed the victims.

 

The House at 807 needs your help

Needed, individuals or families to serve lunch at the House at 807 each Sunday in January. Please sign up in Fellowship Hall. You should arrive around 11:15-11:30 a.m. Meals are already prepared and there are directions about heating, serving & setting the table. You may eat with the residents if you wish. You then clean up & put left overs away (there is a dishwasher). Well behaved children are enjoyed. This is a wonderful experience & outreach. The whole thing takes about an hour.
