Quilt Raffle Winners

The drawing for the two quilts was held on Monday, December 6. Amber Rinkenbaugh won the Window Pane Church in the Vale wall hanging that Sharon Miller made and donated for the raffle. Church member, Tom Carpenter, won the cross-rag quilt that Sew Caring Methodist Women made.

The raffle generated over $650 for the church’s quilting group.

Thanks to all our church members who have submitted an amazing batch of recipes we have the makings of an must-have Church Cookbook.  You're going to enjoy trying these great recipes!  The cookbooks have now been printed and are ready for you to pick up at the church.  Out of town orders will be mailed to those who have ordered cookbook. which we plan to have ready in July.  You can still order a cookbook right here on our church website for $15.  Payment is not due until you receive your cookbook.  Remember, all proceeds go to our Scholarship Fund.  Thanks for supporting our youth!

New Quilt Ministry

Our new Quilt Ministry is now off and running making lap robes for church members who have been in the hospital, who are ill, or who are homebound.  Right now, the biggest need is for donations of fabric, thread, and such.  The group will be meeting on Monday’s from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.  They can always use more volunteers.  There are plenty of tasks to do.  So, you don’t need to have any quilting skills to participate.

Noisy Cans!

Get rid of all that loose change jingling around your pocket or purse!  Bring it to church and deposit it in our new “Noisy Cans.”  We call them noisy because we hope your loose change will make lots of noise as you drop it in!  There will be a Noisy Can at each of the entrances to the sanctuary every Sunday morning. Everything we collect in the Noisy Cans will be placed into our church’s Scholarship Fund.  So, bring us your loose change and we’ll change it into something very special for our church’s youth.

Supporting the Church

Thanks to the many church members and friends who have mailed in their Sunday Offerings in an effort to continue their support of the church’s mission.  Those gifts are being blessed and dedicated for God’s work just as we would normally do at worship on Sunday morning.  If you would like to make a donation of the church click\tab here.


Don't forgot about our on-going Best Choice Save-A-Label Program!  Start saving them right now if you have not already been doing so. Then bring your UPC (proof of purchase) labels to church and put them in the can located on a table in the hallway. The can is marked “Best Choice.”  Our church's Bereavement Dinner Committee will earn $30 in cash for each bundle of 1,000 UPC labels.

Bring Us Your Used Inkjet and Toner Cartridges

Help the church save money on office supplies!  We are part of a program whereby we receive credit for office supplies when we recycle used printer toner and ink cartridges.  Those printer cartridges are bad for the environment, so don't toss them in the trash, bring them to church and we'll put them to good use.  Thanks for helping.
