ANNUAL CHILI COOK-OFF and COOKIE BAKE-OFF: March 28
You won't want to miss this fun event - our annual chili cook-off and cookie bake-off! On Saturday, March 28 at 6:00pm we'll be having a fun night together of tasting chili, tasting cookies, and participating in some fun activities to benefit others in our church. If you'd like to enter a chili, plan to bring it with you at 5:45 on March 28. If you'd like to enter in your favorite cookies please plan to bake 3 dozen cookies (2 dozen to be tasted, and 1 dozen to be packed into care baskets). Even if you don't plan to make a chili or a batch of cookies, plan to come anyway to taste and to judge to crown our new champions! Even if you don't like chili, we'll be having additional food to eat, and we'll be spending time packing care baskets and making cards for people in our church family. If you'd like, please consider bringing some kind of baked good, candy or treat to pack in the care packages (there will be 4-5 baskets total). Come one, come all...and bring a friend!
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD COLLECTION:
Each month from now until November we'll be highlighting the items needed for the shoeboxes we'll pack for Operation Christmas Child. The items collected will help us pack shoexboes for our OCC Carnival Night. You can place your donations in the box at the back of the sanctuary. For the month of February, we are collecting: toothbrushes, toothbrush covers, toothpaste, bar soap, and travel-size tissues. We got a late start in collecting, so please help us if you can with these items for the next couple of weeks!
NORTHERN LIGHTS YOUTH CHOIR: April 24
The Northern Lights Youth Choir - a group of 50 teens from northern Maine - will be joining us once again on Friday, April 24 at 7:00pm for a wonderful concert of songs and skits. You will be blessed by the ministry of this group and you won't want to miss it! When the choir comes we'll need help with housing students and providing a meal on April 24. If you are interested in helping out in these ways, please speak to Carrie Rice or contact the church office - and/or stay tuned for more details.
WEATHER CANCELLATION NOTIFICATIONS:
With winter weather upon us we want to be sure that we have your correct contact information. In the event of a cancellation of a church activity, we generally spread the word in three different ways: 1) An automated calling service with a detailed message; 2) an email to our regular email contact list; 3) an announcement on our website. The fastest and most direct means of finding out about a cancellation is through the phone message system, so if you haven't received one of those calls in the past, or if your phone number has changed, please be sure to contact the church office and give us the updated information.
