Announcements for Week Ending December 4th, 2004

Attention high schoolers - Youth Minister Kaytee Needham is out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday, and the youth group meeting will not be held this week.

Angel Tree ministry is now in progress
with a tree in the back of the Church. This project is for children of prisoners and Native American children. This year we need over 80 gifts for the children. Join in by choosing an angel or Indian tag from the tree at the back of the church, and place your name and the code # for your gift on the list on the ushers' cabinet. Please do not giftwrap the gifts, but do include the tag when bringing the gift to the church. Donations may be made in place of gifts. Gifts are needed by December 20. For more information, call Ancelyn Smith.
