EVANGELISM COMMITTEE will not meet in December. Next meeting is February 20th.
The Sundays in Lent are Undie Sundays at Millcreek Lutheran Church! Still giggling? Do your eyes deceive you? Do we mean “underwear”?!!!
Okay, let’s be “brief”…. Sure, the title is cute and you can’t help but smile, but the true meaning behind Undie Sundays is quite serious…
The fact of the matter is that there are all types of collections for members of our community who find themselves in need; we collect canned goods & food items, money, Christmas gifts, toiletries, etc., but there is another “bare necessity” that they may not have access to, and that is clean undergarments & socks; things we may often take for granted. Let’s face it, undergarments are not something that someone might volunteer a need for because, well, it is just “unmentionable”.
During the Sundays in Lent, beginning with March 10th, we will be hosting an “Undie Sunday” collection. Please bring in new packages of socks, men’s boxers; briefs and underwear for children & women (up to size 9 ).
Now don’t get your “panties in a bunch”, it is easy to do - just “drop your drawers” in the laundry basket located in the narthex on any Sunday during Lent. We will bless the gifts on Palm Sunday and take them to Lebanon County Christian Ministries that week.
Well, that about covers it! Thank you!
The evangelism committee will be sending GOODY BOXES to the college students in early February. There will be a signup sheet placed in the narthex ( in January ) for needed items. Thanks.
Thanks again to Paul Brandt and his presentation on Nov. 8th; “Idaho Byways in Autumn” which included beautiful music and pictures of the Idaho landscape.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
A big Thank You is given to all who packed or helped to pack a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. We had a total of 29 boxes. I’m sure there will be 29 smiling faces on Christmas.
Also, thanks to all who donated towards shipping costs.
Thanks again—Evangelism Committee
