OPEN MIC NIGHT Friday, November 2 as part of our stewardship campaign St. Anne’s will host our fifth annual Open Mic Night. Start planning the talent act that you would like to share and watch for the signup sheet to be posted on the bulletin board in Rose Hall. We will need help with decorating, set up and tear down too. We will celebrate Growing In Faith Together, “GIFT”.
NOVEMBER OUTREACH OF THE MONTH It’s time for our Thanksgiving Basket Outreach. This year we plan to provide 200 + baskets. Last year we put together 200 baskets, this year we have the help of the Salvation Army, First United Methodist Church, Branches Vineyard Church and maybe others that would like to help with this ministry. We are again working with Owens Grocery Store to purchase all items at cost for the baskets. We are asking for monetary donations to cover the cost of the food items. Each basket contains a ham and all of the sides, including a pie for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. If you would like to donate towards this ministry, make your check payable to St. Anne’s Church with Thanksgiving Baskets on the memo line.
HELP NEEDED: Have you wondered what else you can do to help feed the families that will be receiving the Thanksgiving Baskets? This year, we are asking for volunteers to call or text the families to remind them to come to St. Anne's to pick up their basket on November 18 or to be home until 1:00 p.m. for the delivery on November 18 to receive their basket. As a volunteer, you'll receive between 12-15 names and phone numbers to call or text the week of November 13. Our goal is to help with the distribution of the baskets and to make sure all the families that need the food get it. Questions, please see Deb Blatz or Cathy Carter.
ADVENT DINNER FUNDRAISER Will be held on Sunday, December 2 following the 10:15 service. Each year Steve Shelby crafts a beautiful piece of art to raise funds for the Priest’s Discretionary Fund.

Donations can be given to Steve Shelby or Carol Bianchini on Sunday mornings or online by PayPal or credit card. Just go to shelbyvision.com/tickets.html and make your donation of $10 or $25.
