Food Pantry – Thank you for all the donations to our food
pantry. It is very much appreciated! This is an especially busy
time of the year for the food pantry and the food goes fast. In
October, we served 227 individuals and in November, 186.
Any nonperishable food is always welcome. We especially
need cereal, spaghetti sauce and pancake flour.
Join us at HeBrews Café for coffee and fellowship in the Prince of Peace Fellowship
area. People love the fellowship in the Café and
everyone’s participation is appreciated. The signup board is in the narthex. Generally plan for about
80 people, and you don’t have to worry about coffee. The
signup for 2015 is posted in the narthex, please consider signing up to host HeBrews Café in the new
year!
East European Mission Network (EEMN) has a shortterm mission trip to Estonia August 5 – 24, 2015. There will
be two weeks of English Bible Camps. One week at Tartu and
the second on the island of Saaremaa, where our sister church
Holy Jacob is located. Volunteers for this mission trip are
needed to teach classes, lead craft time, music or activities/
recess time. For additional information visit the website at
http://www.eemn.org/ or talk with Mot and Pam Hedges.
Signup deadline is January 31, 2015; however, Estonia has always been a popular mission trip so slots fill up quickly.
Hogan Appreciation – Pastor Dave and his wife Elaine
have touched many lives during the past years through visitation, preaching, and teaching. After January 1 st Pastor Hogan’s
role will change from a paid staff member but they will still be
very involved in our church’s ministries. Please mark January 11th on your calendar to celebrate their contributions
during a special HeBrews Café.
