NOVEMBER OUTREACH OF THE MONTH It’s time for our Thanksgiving Basket Outreach. This year we plan to provide 225+ baskets. The Salvation Army, Branches Vineyard Church, and a grant from the Diocesan Social Outreach Committee and maybe others 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. We will assemble baskets on Sunday, November 24 between the services. If you would like to help, please come at 9 a.m. Sunday and Monday, November 24 & 25 are the pickup dates for the baskets. Our goal is to make sure all the families that need the food get it. Questions, please see Deb Blatz or Cathy Carter.
ADVENT DINNER Friday, December 6 at 6:30 p.m. SAMS will provide the meal and ECW will provide the desserts. Please sign up on the bulletin board to attend. Steve Shelby has crafted a beautiful piece of art work to be given that night. More details are available at the gift counter.
SOUND SYSTEM MATCHING FUNDS St. Anne’s has been looking into an updated sound system for several months. We have a portion of the money set aside. We have an anonymous donor that is willing to match funds up to $5000 to make this happen. If you would like to make a gift toward a new sound system, please make checks payable to St. Anne’s and indicate Sound System on the memo line. We would love to have donations in by November 30.
CHEESEBALLS If you would like to purchase cheeseballs after the service, they are available for $5 each in Rose Hall. They are also available at Zales Drug Store, Freedom Oil and Sherman & Lins.
