All Saints Sunday—November 2, 2014: We will read the names of those who have died in the past 12 months (November 2013–October 2014). If you have a loved one you would like remembered, e-mail your loved one’s name, relationship to you and date of death to email@example.com or call the office with names by October 30.
HELP NEEDED for the Shelter Week November 9–15, and there is still lots of spaces for food and volunteers! Please check the shelter book on the lobby table and sign up to bring food or to help with the evening activities—or both! Many good things are happening at the Shelter. At least 18 persons/families have secured housing and are no longer homeless! Some of our homeless guests are now part of the paid staff. Come and see and feel the “new” shelter ambience! If you would like to bring food, but can’t make it to the shelter, bring it to the church and we’ll arrange to get it there.
The collections for the Mothers and Children in Artesia are continuing. The list of items is in the lobby and help is in Albuquerque the morning of Wednesday, November 5, to sort and put together travel kits. Call Betty Kersting at 982.4548 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Lost and Waiting to Be Found: Any items found by the staff or janitorial crew are placed in the Coat Closet with small items in the labeled red bin. After a couple months, these items are given to others who might use them.
