TODAY IS JANUARY’s COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY SUNDAY when Friends are invited to donate a staple food item to help area families who struggle to afford adequate nutrition.  If you forgot but want to give, you may drop a dollar or two into the Quaker Oats tin on the southwest parlor table.
USFW SPRING RUMMAGE SALE:  Friends are welcome to bring secondhand or unwanted kitchen items, clothing, electronics, furniture, tools, and other household goods to the meetinghouse annex attic to be sold at the USFW’s fundraiser on March 21.  Please phone the church office if you need assistance transporting your donation to the church.
GET PERSONALLY INVOLVED IN MISSIONS:  Shareholders in Shalom crocheted items and energy-efficient light bulbs are available on the south parlor table in exchange for donations to support Christian agencies working for peace.  Shareholders “seed money” for buying ingredients/materials is available from the Missions & Social Concerns Committee to help Friends begin a project to “grow” support for Christian agencies working for peace and nonviolence.  Peace Is Possible $10 bills also are available for Friends willing to carry them until you are led to share it with someone needing a bit of help and a reminder of God’s love.  Please speak with a Missions & Social Concerns member for help getting started with either outreach effort.
FEBRUARY FRIENDLY REMINDER newsletter announcements and articles are welcome in the church office anytime.
CELEBRATE THE ARTS:  Please sign the sheet in the parlor to choose a date to share your musical or nonmusical (painting, photography, poetry, handicraft, etc.) artistic abilities in praise to the Lord during worship on Sundays when the choir does not sing.
CAN YOU SAY “GOOD MORNING?”  Please sign the sheet in the parlor to volunteer for an upcoming month to serve as a Sunday morning greeter.  Thank you to everyone who has helped with this important ministry!
JANUARY’s PEACE IS POSSIBLE advocacy information sheet is available today from the southwest parlor table.
